From between the pages of myth, history, and time itself steps the previously unknown sister of Icarus (the Boy Who Flew Too Close to the Sun) to fulfill her destiny of rewriting the very stories by which we live...
On the ancient island of Minoan Crete, 11 year old Calice, whose existence has been kept secret from her famous inventor father, decides she has learned all she can by watching her father and artist brother from the shadows of the Palace where she lives.
A budding inventor herself, she renames herself Petra Volare, and ventures forth, recording her observations and invention sketches, her vivid past-life dreams, and her thoughts about the mysterious Cave of the First Ones, where she discovers her true destiny.
Through her journal we follow Petra Volare as she meets people who have clearly been waiting to help her— Phoenicia the herbalist, who is much more than just an old wise woman and who teaches her how to use the power of dreams to actively create her destiny; Arkalochori, much more than a master sword-maker; Ariadne, not only the ruler’s daughter, but an ally who leads Petra to a life-changing discovery; and Petros, a sailor who teaches her the Star Stories that will guide her to her greater destiny.
Petra’s thoughts and sketches reveal that, in the true story behind ancient Greek myths of the Labyrinth, no one is who they seem, and in the race to save the lives of her beloved brother and her best friend, an inventor’s best tool is her intuition.
“The Journals of Petra Volare–Scroll I: From the Shadows” establishes the premise for the series, which will be comprised of 7 books, and will follow Petra Volare around the world as she fulfills her destiny of changing some of the ancient stories by which we live.
