Sincerely Elise is a fantasy adventure inspired by all of my favorite games and stories I've grown up admiring, from Dragon Ball and Naruto to Lord of the Rings and World of Warcraft.
It's a 9-chapter, 7.5 x 10, ~240-page book that comes with a soft cover.
The book is entirely written and illustrated by me other than the logo which was designed by the brilliant Billy Garretsen.
Ava is casted into an unknown part of Alos
Billions of years ago there lived the Dyn. Colossal space dinosaurs that would roam through the galaxies doing normal dinosaur things, from fighting and conflict to cohabitation. They have all since been extinct. However, during their time of conflict a family of Dyn came plummeting from space onto a Planet named Alos. All of them dying on impact while creating the three landmasses in which the story takes place. Civilization has evolved immensely since this time as humanity lived on and created a livable eco-system.
Corvikara is an Ignitor, known to play a role in building and activating the Sentries. Ignitors were recruited by the Architects in their original planning of the God Engine. All a bunch of ancient history stuff, point is he's magical! As an ignitor, he's granted the ability to transfer his soul to new hosts via masks, worn objects, etc. Corvikara's on the search for his old squad of ignitors whom are somewhere on Alos. They were separated during what was essentially a catastrophic "reshaping" of the planets life.
Since the day she escaped Captain Sharpside’s lair, she’s riddled with anxiety and unable to leave her valley.
She remains in fear of that experience and reliving it. This sends her into a three year hiatus where she becomes obsessed with understanding the world she lives in...or shall we say the creatures she lives on?
Hopskotch is a local Leavelo found nested next to where Ava lives. Leavelo are one of the many wildlife that strive on Alos. Specifically, while they sleep, they keep their tails popped up out of the ground as a defensive tactic.
A sassy little Hosthopper who gains control of a Sentry. Hosthoppers are a species found deep in the forelorn caves of Alos. How did she make it out!?
Sharpside leads a bloodthirsty quest to find Corvikara for reasons unknown.
Along with that he also is rebuilding a new race of Sentries that he nurtures and treats as a society. Striving to live and survive as long as they can.
A helpful yet short-fused mechanic, armed with a bionic limb to assist her in defending herself against the threats of Alos. She can also use it in different ways to help her innovate as she tinkers and creates different things to overcome obstacles.
