Aella is an island far away in the sea with a few very tiny islands around it. It is said that only the wind reaches for it; it is mostly secluded from other lands as ships rarely sail that far.
The Aellos is a tribe of several clans of hunters and warriors that existed for centuries on that island. Over the years and mostly due to the harsh weather, the number of women have dropped drastically leading to fights and wars between the different clans of the tribe. Tired of being both subjects of dispute and objects of treaties, the proud women, referred to as Aellas, declared their own clan and secluded themselves in their own territory.
Now there are only two clans: the Aellas, living in the north part of the island and above a very high cliff, and the Aellos, which is the clan of men living in the forests and mountains on the rest of the island.
All the laws of the tribe are now set for one purpose only: protecting the women and the survival of the tribe. For that reason, both clans meet once a year for what they call: Agape, the season of love, where a male from the Aellos and a woman from the Aellas choose each other to live together and enjoy each other for a month.
Ceri is a 17 years old, is the only man living with the Aellas clan. He was born and raised there, never once stepping foot beyond the limit of their territory... until the day he met the gorgeous Ithel.
This is a romantic love story between the innocent Ceri and the lonely hunter, Ithel.
Hope you enjoy this short novel ;)
