The Calm Before the Storm by Joe Lawson.
It has been nine hundred years since the Jyniae were besieged by the Human and
Aanian armies, forced into the rugged northlands and imprisoned there.
Alyxandr Jeffries and Jhonia are both half-human. Jhonia is part Jyniae, and
because of that he is able to touch the Source, able to use the magic of his
people. Alyx is part Rydi and with his Rydi blood comes the grace and skill that
are attributed to that race.
Alyx and Jhonia soon discover their worst fears have come to pass, the Jyniae
plan to seize the lands and cities that once belonged to them. War is on the
horizon. As Alyx and Jhonia begin a journey that will take them from the Nomadic
Rydi tribes of the Southlands to the far Northern reaches of Jhonia’s forsaken
Jyniaen homeland, their loyalty and trust will be tested.
Disturbing choices must be made to prevent a war of the races, to save the
world from this cataclysmic event. Amid friends, there is now deceit and
betrayal and the outcome of the world isn’t so clear...
