A galactic cold war,
an angelic beast that blurs the line between living and machine,
and a girl whose destiny is about to change forever
Escape into a universe where the unbounded limits
of technology have given rise to an exquisite wonder,
taking you places you never dreamed possible
in an interstellar adventure like no other
In the 25th century, humanity has spread to the stars.
Befriending an extra-terrestrial race called the Fel, together they have created a galactic community uniting dozens of civilizations.
Amongst the diversity of interstellar alien cultures, a new one has appeared. Felsians, they were called, illegal hybrids of human and Fel, with stunningly beautiful eyes.
But unlike others in this vast interstellar society, they were unwanted, treated as outcasts and disregarded as a whole. That is, until the life of an unassuming felsian girl named Casey takes an unexpected turn after stumbling across one of the most extraordinary pieces of technology ever created.
In the awe-inspiring interplanetary adventure that follows, Casey experiences the power and exhilaration of flying through anything from the deepest of oceans to the madness of a gas giant. A close friendship soon forms with a mysterious entity called Angel, a ubiquitous synthetic intelligence whom Casey helps navigate an onslaught of unusual human-like emotions.
But at a time when dark nefarious forces threaten the peaceful existence of the many races living within the cosmic community, Angel and Casey soon realize their adventure cannot continue forever.
That one day, their exceptional abilities will be put to the ultimate test.
to the Angelfyre Universe.
Angelfyre is a deep and intricate story in a futuristic interstellar setting spanning nine novels, borne through a delicate weave of hard science, fantasy, speculative sci-fi, and heartwarming emotion. It is my utmost attempt to bring something fresh to the scene, to tell a story that is both heartfelt and relatable to provide a satisfying escape from a world constantly testing our resolves.
The Angelfyre novel series will be completely relaunched this year. The updated 2023 edition will be structurally identical to the original with some improvements in the editing along with a new layout. Preorders for this edition will open soon.

Lydan Francis wields an absurdly weird skillset in more disciplines than a Curivil Gubarbit could shake a Murin Tree stick at, constantly harassing his misbehaving imagination to create the vast collection of worlds, settings, characters, artwork, and music in his science fiction and fantasy stories.
When not behind his keyboard he becomes a daywalker by the name of Dylan, enjoying strong coffee, long walks on the ocean floor, and preferring the company of poisonous iridescent polychaetes to any and all extant species of telemarketer.
