Can a world of many races exist without racism?

Fantasy author J. A. Cullum doesn't believe so! In her new release, Lyskarion: The Song of the Wind, the author's story unfolds against a backdrop of racial and religious tensions, which are a curious reflection of our modern society.

Hundreds of years before the story takes place, the Great Wizards created the Karionin, eight living crystals which substantially increase the bearer's power. When a conflict breaks out among the great wizards, this increased power results in mass destruction and death. Now people fear the wizard's potential for destruction, and few children train to become wizards.

Plagued by racial and religious hatred, Tamar is home to nine races-humans live side by side with races who have the ability to shift their shape from human to animal form, including dolphins (Ingvalar), tigers (Linlar), and lizards (Isklar). The dolphins and humans get along; yet prejudices exist. The tigers and lizards have been attacking human settlements, and a devastating war seems inevitable.

Cormor, the last of the great wizards, knows that the only chance for peace is for a legion of powerful wizards to reign once again. The fate of Tamar falls upon three youths - each with great potential, each with a reason for resistance. These young wizards-in-training must learn to overcome their differences and restore peace once again or humanity will be destroyed.

Lyskarion is the first book of the Chronicles of the Karionin trilogy.
