Blades of metal are not as powerful as blades of companionship.
Blade Tales is a fantasy series presenting book bundles of interlinked stories from Chronicles of the Great Peninsula. Koretia, Emor, and Daxis were all founded on the same day, but as the centuries have passed, the Three Lands of the Great Peninsula have become increasingly divided by religion, government, and culture. Koretians worship many gods, Daxions worship one goddess, and Emorians revere only their law. Emorians claim that Koretians are vicious and superstitious, Koretians think that Daxions are vile oath-breakers, and Daxions charge that Emorians abuse their children and slaves.
If a god were to appear in the Three Lands, would his appearance bring an end to the fighting between nations? Or would he merely help to spark an inferno of war?
The series is part of the Chronicles of the Great Peninsula cycle.

=== VOLUME CONTENTS ===
Wildfire (The Three Lands). He was a loyal servant of the god. But even loyal servants have their limits. When Griffith is cast into the role of leading a deadly blood feud against a rival village, he must decide how strong his faith is in the religion that decrees such feuds must occur. Griffith has always been a prankster . . . but can he trick his way out of this dilemma?
Famine or Feast (The Three Lands). Adrian knew that friendship was a fundamental custom of all mankind. Or so he thought, until his closest friend discovered a mysterious journal.
Season of Dangerous Peace (The Three Lands). His village is dead, his baron broken beyond mending. Now, as the year reaches the season of peace, the baron's heir must decide whether to keep his family hidden, safe from the blood feud that is ravaging their kingdom, or to enter danger in quest of a higher goal.
The Fire Before (The Three Lands). The god's fire is fierce, but not as fierce as the god's wrath if you turn away. . . . Tristan is the King's heir, destined to rule the Kingdom of Koretia. His nephew Robin has taken Tristan's place as baron of their town. Now both men are about to face the worst crisis their land has ever known. And neither of them understands what the true crisis is. As Tristan struggles to find the courage to follow his god's command, and Robin tries to find a middle ground between piety and disloyalty to his uncle, the two noblemen will be forced to confront the consequences of war . . . and the consequences of their own inaction.
Hidden Blade (The Three
Lands). His father is a dull farmer. His mother is a dull farmer's
wife. He seems destined for a similarly dull life. But then a stranger
appears in their village, and suddenly the talk is of soldiers and spies
and secrets and gods. Will he be able to break free of his father's legacy
and make a bold dash to a life of his own?
