14-year-old Spero Copia’s world is falling apart. After a harrowing escape from the oppressive Verderians on the continent Destin, the Azurian people have prospered for two hundred years in safety and seclusion in the Sanctum, a massive cave system under the continent Alacrita. Now, in the midst of violence and riots, Spero’s revered father suddenly goes missing. As the perpetrators of chaotic political insurrection gain more ground, Spero discovers an even larger conspiracy among his family and friends. A secret plan to defeat the Verderians turns into a global plan to save all that Azurians hold dear. However, unless Spero and his friends act, their downfall might come from the enemy within. Dive into the complexity of Azurian spirituality, political subterfuge, treason, and betrayal in this first book of the Monumentum Series.
Book 2: (coming soon!)
The planet Petra’s technologically advanced, secretive sanctuary-society, the Sanctum, is facing civil unrest, a political coup, and total governmental collapse. Spero Copia’s mother, Cantia, and her allies launch a last-ditch effort to save their nation and prevent the annihilation of their people. But a few of the Sanctum’s youngest residents are far away from the chaos. 14-year-old Spero and his friends embark on a perilous journey to warn Spero’s father, Altus, of a Verderian plot to invade the Sanctum and exterminate the Azurians who reside there. By the time they arrive, Spero’s father might not be there at all. The well-respected surgeon and leader must leave his own Resistance sanctuary on a dangerous mission into Verderian territory, from which his return is uncertain. Will the faith of the Copia family and their allies be enough to carry them through, or will Petra fall to ruin as the war between the Azurians and Verderians escalates to mutual destruction? The second installment of the Monumentum Series chronicles the heart-pounding, action-packed spiritual and temporal warfare of this distant world.
