The Veiled Discord is an epic fantasy novel and the first book in the The Visions of Lodas series. There are several diverse kingdoms in the World of Lodas, each with its own history, culture and citizenry. While these kingdoms have enjoyed peace for a long time, an epidemic threatens the prosperity of the most powerful kingdom, Gofon, and fuels the lustful ambitions of the rulers of other kingdoms of Lodas. Treachery, deceit, espionage, assassinations and the insatiable thirst for power of the kings and queens of certain kingdoms are the cause of escalating tensions and growing conflict in Lodas. Behind the scenes, other dominating forces are competing for power and will stop at nothing to conquer kingdoms and even the entire World of Lodas. Opposing these evil forces are the kings, queens and ordinary citizens of other kingdoms, from the big cities to the small villages. Mages, jesters, gladiators and majestic creatures all play a role in the conflict, supporting one side or the other, or representing their own self-motivated interests. The book’s various storylines, and many twists and turns, develop into a blended plot that immerses the reader into the magical World of Lodas.
