Sometimes, the greatest of ancient rulers are given tombs that are fit for gods. Easily the best example of this would be the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, which is the final resting place of the pharaohs. In my third fantasy book, an interesting piece of Gradaia’s history and lore will be revealed. Six thousand years before the formation of the Empire, there was this group of kings who were strong in magic. Thanks to their political influence, military might, and magical knowledge, these kings became great legends that formed and destroyed kingdoms. In modern times, these kings are regarded as myths since the power they wielded seemed belong to lesser gods. Even so, these kings are revered for their great deeds and it is because of them that several groups believe that people who can use magic have a special connection with the gods. What is most intriguing is that the final resting place for these kings was lost to history along with all of their magical secrets. However, it looks like that resting place will be revealed in the third book and I will be drawing inspiration from the Valley of the Kings.
