Before Mal Winter, there was an idea.
An idea for an epic, sci-fi/fantasy coming-of-age novel, following two protagonists: twin brothers who were fated to affect all existence. It's revealed in the prologue that one was destined to destroy the universe and that one might be able to save us all. This story was called Lydaer + Kain and was plotted out as a five-book series. This series follows the boys as they grow up in a scientifically advanced culture, where magic exists in the cracks and fringes of society.
This series's first book is titled Seeds of Equilibrium and follows Lydaer and Kain, whose world at ten years old is about to change.
