Three Nations of the Cataclysm: Hope, Elves and Vikings

The events of the Cataclysm in the Kat Drummond series not only brought magic and monsters into the world, but also changed the fundamental political structures of Earth.

Gods and Legends in Post-Cataclysm Earth

Throughout our history, we have recognised the existence of gods, from the Olympians of Ancient Greece, the Asgardians of Norse mythology and the countless pantheons of our forebears. Much of these tales of heroes, gods and legend are mere mythology, but all myth has a grain of truth. After the Cataclysm, this grain of truth […]

The Spark: Magic After the Cataclysm
