About the Stories

Author James R. Hannibal is hard at work on stories that take the Lightraider world beyond the game. These include novelizations and an online interactive story through Pursue Magazine.

Wolf Soldier and the Lightraider Academy Series.

James is the author of seven novels from major publishers (with numbers eight and nine arriving in late 2019 and early 2020). He is currently working on a novelization of the world of Talania. We will keep you updated on the future of the Lightraider Academy series here.

The Fountain and the Flame with Pursue Magazine

Pursue Magazine began featuring a monthly chapter set in Talania in August of 2018, making it the first ever “reader-directed” fantasy novel. With The Fountain and the Flame, readers can vote to help the hero Kaia make choices at the end of each chapter, and James will carry her story forward based on those votes. Don’t miss your opportunity to take part in the first ever reader-directed fantasy novel!

Update: Pursue began experiencing technical issues in December 2018, and the site is down until May or June 2019. In the meantime, we will continue to host The Fountain and the Flame right here on Lightraiders.com. Find the most recent chapters under our “Stories” tab or through the links below.
