The Messenger`s Origin
UK 2017 ISBN13: 9781999790813
Author: Roma Ryan
This book of poetry is part of The Loxian Games. The poems are presented as a challenge - they are fragments, color-codes, they are writings about stars, either from our earthlings viewpoint or from the archives of the Loxians. The idea of this volume is to deduce which star you are reading about. Those unfamiliar with the Loxian world should still be able to find their way through these poems..
Islands No 2 & 3: Dark Sky Islands and Little Histories
UK 2017 ISBN13: 9781999790806
AUTHOR: ROMA RYAN
This volume of poetry was the inspiration for the title track of the Enya album Dark Sky Island. It is the first to be issued from the series of poetry books ‘Islands and little histories.’ In each book the poems are presented as a challenge. The idea is to deduce from the poetry which island you are reading about. The little histories either provide further information about the island or follow a different path – one that connects to the island through the poetry.
