Rjg: A Danna Novel Trilogy

For those curi­ous how to pro­nounce the word: “Rjg” reads with a short i, the palatal approx­i­mant /j/ like the pro­nun­ci­a­tion of ⟨y⟩ in toy, and g is the voiced velar plo­sive /ɡ/, like the pro­nun­ci­a­tion of ⟨g⟩ in “go”.

A man with a vision, he will be known as God­slay­er.
Nations fall and van­ish; a dom­i­nant species erased from exis­tence.
Their mis­take? Once, they had let him live.

Plan­et Dan­nan is the home of two intel­li­gent and close­ly relat­ed humanoid species: the mys­te­ri­ous Danna—the red peo­ple, whose small tribes trace their ances­try and blood pow­ers to a being from the end­less Abyss, and the Ynu, whose most numer­ous nation of Arrakan Uyur dom­i­nates the world with an iron fist, bru­tal­ly sub­ju­gat­ing all who oppose them. They reject those with ungod­ly blood.

Yaren, once a prince, is sent as a slave to rot in a cop­per mine deep in the moun­tains of his over­run home­land. The son of a Dan­na drifter and a Rawani High Queen, he inher­its the blood and the will of his par­ents. He has been left to fig­ure out the hid­den pow­er with­in him to achieve his goals: to take back the ancient king­dom of Rawan and to lead his peo­ple to the stars.

Amid­st the blood­stained bat­tle­fields, dreams and eerie visions, a strange lega­cy of the Great Ances­tor begins to take shape, blend­ing sad­ness and grief with a fierce joy, and mark­ing the rise of the Com­mon­wealth of Tue Dan­nan.

Rjg is a xeno­cen­tric, epic, hard sci­ence fic­tion nov­el tril­o­gy that is set in the same Uni­verse as Falaha’s Jour­ney, though much ear­lier in time.
