Rise of the New Masters Ending Written
I’m beginning to think I should start writing the ending first always. Well, it was easier to do since this was a sequel. Sequels are really HARD to write in my opinion. But at last, I have written (detailed outline) the ending of this book (Rise of the New Masters), now to write my way there from the beginning. Another great adventure in writing continues.
As a side note, I am considering not including Jonas in this one as he was greatly in love with Brianna who does not appear in this novel. Although he gets somewhat close to Eleya and decides what Brianna has done to her is wrong in the screenplay adaption, this does not show in the first novel. Although, I could just write in a few references or flashback scenes.

The Age of Merrik: The Series
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.
The Age of Merrik: Perspective from 2007
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.

Name Formatting in The Age of Merrik
In The Anointing, “Zaedrif” and others are spelled with a joined “ae.” Beldare is “Beldare'” and Serafin has an accent over the “i”. Although these will be kept in the novels, for ease of accessibility use, my websites, including the wikis will not include these spellings. Characters will be listed in their simplified letter form.
“Sword Masters” are used in The Anointing and The Screenplay Adaptation. Other works list them as “Swordmasters”.
