Lights in the Void – Index

Lights in the void is the name of the shared universe many of my fantasy stories take places in, over time telling a large story about the universe. Stories in this universe require no, or almost no, information about other stories to enjoy, but if you see recurring characters in different worlds, this is probably why.

Currently planned stories in this series include:

Hope – Completed

Turn of the Wheel – Completed

The Black Flag – In Progress

Memento Mori – In Progress

Beyond Life and Death – In Planning

A Plague Upon your House – In Progress

Darkest Before Midnight – In Progress

Tantric – In Progress

Heart of the Void – In Planning

Humanity is all sapient life if the universe, spread out over many thousands of worlds, scattered by the shattering of the Originators. They are composed equally of all four Originators.


The Eternals were the first beings to come into existence at the dawn of the universe, when the 4 Originators put their power together to create everything. Each is created by a union of the power of two of the Originators.
