Fan Question – SPOILER regarding the Sword MastersALRIGHT, READY FOR THIS SPOILER
Excerpt from The Age of Merrik’s Official Website:
A series of novels in the Sword Master Universe, The Age of Merrik tells the story of Merrik, the young ruler of Tyera destined for greatness. Along his journey, he meets many of the sword masters, including the Sword Master Regina.
With the help of his allies, he may be able to defeat Malik’s forces from controlling the world.
The Age of Merrik: The Anointing contains a special preview of The Age of Merrik: Rise of the New Masters.
An old blog post from 2007. Reposted.
For those of you who have read previous versions of The Age of Merrik–which officially reached back as far as 2000–you will be pleased to know that Cle’an plays a more important part. The sword masters (mildly referred to in the 2000 version) have a much fleshed out history and are truly legendary.
Zaedrif’s role has changed throughout the versions. Beginning in the 2005 version, Zaedrif is hailed as the great Prince and Sword Master of Nemea–a land further explained in this final version.
Working on the screenplay adaptation helped me to develop Zibiah, Zaedrif’s sister, and Cle’an’s admiration of Eleya.
The most recent change to the series is the place and function of “The Journey”. It is a place between the mind of the present and the mind of the future where only sword masters may go. Eleya’s position as the Sword Master Regina has become more important and will be more so in Rise of the New Masters.

What’s next with Brianna?
I haven’t really decided what to do with her. In the previous version, I knew how she would show up again, but now, I am considering other ideas.
I had Brianna and Liana as reflections of each other. They were essentially the same, just on different sides of the battle. One difference . . .
Who is worse, Liana or Brianna?SPOILERS AND POLL FOLLOW

What is the vow?
The vow is more thoroughly explained in Rise of the New Masters.
Here is a brief section about it:
A kiss is a vow. Outside of one’s family, a person does not kiss another unless that person is vowed to the other. After the dragons died out at the end of the Dragon Era, sword masters and wizards alike had difficulty in controlling leaking of their magical powers. They learned to concentrate the distribution of their magic power through their lips—whether in words or in a kiss.The Age of Merrik
