Damlol is a planet located outside the reaches of Earth and the solar system, a peaceful world from which many colonists from Earth left centuries ago, fleeing a worldwide caliphate. But all is not as it seems. Athena, the princess of a country known as Yavdolo, is growing up in a turbulent time. The kingdom of Avodla desires to crush all other nations and cover the world in an oppressive dictatorship—similar to the one the colonists fled from so many centuries ago. This is the story of a girl of great courage and her many adventures, the first in a series.
Helen R. Davis was educated at Ohio Northern University. She has studied the ancient world through the gift of books since a very young age, her passion for this era kindled long ago. She has a passion for strong women who have governed nations from the past to the present.
Athena is crowned queen of her country. Who will all be there?
April 18th was a rainy day, as was usual during my country’s rainy season. Nonetheless, the crowd turnout was huge. Half the country must have been in Yavdolo City for the big day. The ceremony started at the church, where Kate said a blessing over me and placed the crown on my head. Then Robert and I went into the car and rode around the city. As we passed the Shrine of Our Lady, my heart nearly stopped as I saw Joshua, John, and Maria Ma’at outside throwing rose petals.
