The Ossayu of Ahmenar Ishtam is an epic adventure-quest that takes place on Atria, a world whose ancient past could be our near term future.
Ahmenar’s mother went to a remote foreign land to hide his birth. As a newborn, he was taken from his mother and sent to a distant monastery, from which he was placed with a nearby family. He grew up unsettled, never feeling like he belonged and not knowing why. To find his place in life, he must uncover hidden truths about himself and do so before he is located by enemies he doesn’t know he has who would have him killed. To defeat them, he must master weapons he doesn’t understand, and find answers to questions he doesn’t know to ask.

An immersive, epic adventure quest The OAI is episodic, released in a series of books.
Ahmenar's placement as an infant into the home of the Ishtam family has long been the fuel of rumors and jealousy. The long simmering situation worsens when Ahmenar receives an invitation to attend a Special Presentation at the Susemhren Guildhall. Guild meetings are absolutely restricted to Brothers, and only fifteen years old, Ahmenar is two years shy of attempting to become one. The issue of his attendance divides not his family, but the political structures of the region. Should he attend? How can he decide? If only he knew who the invitation was from, and why he'd been invited. But he doesn't, and the presentation is in just a few hours.
