Aiya! Welcome

Mae g’ovannen! For the little elvish I use in the Ethaia books I use both Quenya and Sindarin. That doesn’t mean I can pronounce them, but the words look unique and it seems that there are less books that use them. I thought that the name Aleyne was unique (I did an Internet search when I decided to use it) then found it in Facebook and I was surprised to find Myrran later on. Since they were already incorporated in the books, oh well. I hope others like them as much as I do.

So, aiya. Welcome to Ethaia online. In the context of my book, ethaia means to join – the joining together of elves and men. Ethaia, on the other hand, means so many things. Ethaia is the name of a castle. Ethaia is the pen-name of an author oh so many years ago in Aloran time. Ethaia is the name of a band of adventurers, with another legend at their lead. Megilindir, the elven word that translates to “bladesinger”, is the hero mentioned in the ballad of Ethaia. Bladesinger, as it was translated in the Orcish language, was the name given to a young girl. Aleyne was raised as a woodsman and scout and preferred to be left to her peaceful ways. When crossed, her training and skills made her a deadly terror. Her beautiful elven blade sung at the opportunity to defend and fight. The sound could be heard throughout the forest, and all knew of Megilindir, Bladesinger. So the reluctant journey of a half-elven girl who was destined to lead an army and guide not one but many nations was begun.
