Now, on to what brought you here in the first place:
Creation of Flight of Blue: The Three Realms
In many ways the creation of the three realms was the most challenging, especially the Realm of Light, which we don't see at all (yet, anyway ;-) ). Throughout the story, interaction with the Realm of Light is solely through the Flight of Blue messengers, and of course, the clues left behind by the prophecy of the Lucinarium. The Realm of Light lends its hand in the struggle against the Realm of Darkness entirely through people who have chosen to fight the invasion, but not by direct means. This is both intriguing and frustrating to Kai, even as he discovers more about how the dynamics of the Three Realms work.
Of course, as we follow Kai's discovery we learn there was once just two Realms, and through a story told Kai, we discover how the Middle Realm came to be split off from the Realm of Light, leaving it more vulnerable to the Realm of Darkness.
Of course, the tricky thing about the Realms is that they don't exist side by side in any sort of geographical sense, but instead are almost layers of the same place. The Realm of Darkness is a poisoned reflection of the Middle Realm, and the Realm of Light still exists sort of "in" the Middle Realm, but the residents of the Middle Realm can no longer see it, even though those who belong to the Realm of Light can see both Realms at the same time. Confusing? yes, I thought so, but I can't tell you more without spoiling the story!
What I can tell you is that certain acts by those in the Middle Realm allow rips in the fabric of the world to form, and it is one such act before our story begins that causes the rip that sets in motion Kai's journey of discovery into the way the world really works, and the role that he has been born into. He simply has to decide whether to fulfill that role or not. Of course, that's not really so simple when we learn what is at stake and what lies ahead for him should he choose to accept.
