The world of Greecium is a fantasy world that I’ve used inspiration from Greek mythology and Ancient Greece to create. The gods who reign over Greecium include Aphrodite, Athena, Artemis, Ares, Apollo, Demeter, Dionysus, Hades, Hera, Hermes, Poseidon, Zeus, Hephaestus, and Hestia. These gods left Earth during the fall of Greece and created this new world. The gods transported as many humans as they could before leaving Earth so Greecium would have people ready to live there. For some time, the humans remained as humans until the entire human population was threatened by the mythical beasts roaming the lands. The soldiers got together from their tribes and prayed to Ares to help them in battle. The god did help, and he realized the humans were almost always in danger of being killed off by the beasts of Greecium. So, he proposed to the gods they help the humans by granting them special powers. Enough of the gods agreed to this idea and offered their blood to the humans, and thus the warriors were created.
This world has undergone eight years of development. Before that the Greek gods and the main characters Cyrena, Max, and Orion, were part of the imaginary world I played in as a child. Although, at the time, Cyrena was known as Coda, and Orion used to be Zach. I loved the adventures I went on as a kid so much that I continued to daydream about Coda and what sort of quests she would go on with her friends. I wanted to see her stories unfold on the page, so I began writing them when I was thirteen. Ever since then, I knew I wanted to write the world of Greecium as a book series.
