One-Sentence Summaries – Part Two

Yesterday, I posted three one-sentence summaries of future books or series I’ll be writing. If you haven’t read it yet, take a look here. This time, I’ll be writing a few more.

The Knight of Ariadne: Book 1

This is actually the original story I had created along with the map of Ariadne long, long ago. It’s one of my most developed stories, but it won’t be the first written. The title of the trilogy has two meanings, which I’m not going to tell you. Sorry, it’ll be revealed in the book.

  • Character: A young man with enormous power
  • Conflict: Infiltration of Earth forces into the Knights
  • What’s at stake: Freedom and a way of life
  • Action: Train to be a Knight and stop the spies
  • Setting: Ariadne

One young man must become a Knight and use his powers to stop the infiltration by Earth forces, who are determined to undermine freedom and a peaceful way of life.

Not sure what to say here. I think it needs some improvement.

The Knight of Ariadne: Book Two

This is, of course, the sequel. It’s a continuation, but is itself a self-contained story.

  • Character: A young Knight (same character as before)
  • Conflict: A cult-like group saps the energy of other people to plunge Ariadne into chaos
  • What’s at stake: Peace and order
  • Action: The Knight takes charge of a company of Knights and discovers the extent of his powers
  • Setting: Ariadne

Many people fall victim to a cult-like group of energy vampires, while a young Knight uses new powers along with his companions to preserve peace and restore order.

I found this one tough to write. What do you think?

The Knight of Ariadne: Book Three

This if the final part and will bring to close this trilogy. However, it marks a big change in the world, and leads to some interesting future stories.

  • Character: A young Knight (same guy as before)
  • Conflict: The Earth-loyal faction returns to release an alien biological weapon and gain control of an unlimited source of energy
  • What’s at stake: Millions of lives
  • Action: The Knight and his partner seek the Earth-loyal agent to prevent him from achieving his goal
  • Setting: Ariadne

Bitter after repeated failures to control Ariadne, the Earth faction sends its best agent to release an ancient biological weapon and gain control of an unlimited source of energy, but a young Knight and his partner must risk everything to stop the deaths of millions.

Although the third one is longer, I feel more satisfied with it. Oddly, I have an impression of James Bond when I think of the actual story.

What do you think of these three one-sentence summaries? Let me know which ones work for you, and which don’t. I’ll have more for my fantasy stories soon in part three. The comments section below is at your disposal.

43 Days to Canada – Amazing Landscapes

It’s now February 16th. Only forty-three days until we leave Japan. The time is so near that it’s feeling real. Still a lot to do, though.

One thing I’m going to start doing is making frequent videos about our move, talking about things we’ve done, things we need to do, and my thoughts of the moment. They’ll be pretty brief, but you’ll get an idea about what’s going on in my mind, as well as find out what the whole process is like.

But for now, I’ll just share with you an article that features some incredibly beautiful, but lesser-known places in Canada. Huffington Post published this a couple years ago. Here’s what you can see:

  • Mount Thor – Wow. The mountains in Nunavut look amazing
  • Abraham Lake – Incredible in winter. This is in my home province of Alberta.
  • Manicouagan Crater – This is probably one of the most famous craters in the world. It looks amazing from space.
  • Pingualuit Crater – This is a relatively fresh crater in Quebec. Looks quite recent.
  • Pingos in the Northwest Territories – Very interesting hills that add to the unique tundra landscape.
  • The Sleeping Giant – That’s a massive hunk of rock rising above the surrounding land in Ontario.
  • The Bay of Fundy – Highest tides in the world. Would love to see that.
  • Nahanni National Park in Northwest Territories – This place looks incredible.
  • Spotted Lake in British Columbia – I’d love to see this in person. It looks like nothing I’ve ever seen before.
  • The sky in Saskatchewan – The clouds on the prairies are amazing. It’s similar in Edmonton.
  • Gros Morne National Park – Wow. That looks like an amazing view reminiscent of Iceland.
  • Ice Caves – Plenty of these, including one in Jasper! That’s not far from Edmonton.
