6 magic stones were created by the ancient wizard, 5 of them shaped as platonic solids, and the 6th one as a sphere. But when the wizard died, the stones were cursed by the Archdemon, and with them all of Candora. Many years in the future, a half-elf/half-human that is born is named after the mathematical constant e. Unlike everyone else in Candora, e has no special talent, but at a young age, he has a near death experience. It is at this time that he meets a lifelong mentor from earth’s ancient Greece -an old bald headed man, with a fondness for mathematics and campfires.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
As a mathematician and lover of fantasy fiction such as Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings, I wanted to bring a little math into a fantasy setting. To write something is to first love it. So that’s where I was first.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My main character is named after the mathematical constant e. He is a half-breed (half-human/half-elf). e meets an elven girl named Aelia (who is modeled after the imaginary unit) and a dwarf named Lupi (who is obviously modeled after the mathematical constant Pi). These 3 characters are destined to bring this world Candora into balance, and that is mathematically similar to the Euler’s identity. These 3 characters are of the land called Candora, but Euclid is from earth’s ancient Greece. Euclid is e’s mentor who only comes to e through the irrational- in dreams that is. Now this might be a little much to take in here, but after you read a few chapters, it should make much more sense! Ha!
e found himself becoming irrational. He didn’t know how long he had run, but it was his intent to follow Odel’s instructions the best that he could. His thoughts bounced from Odel to his home in Venunder. He had turned to glance back at his aggressor but suddenly found himself falling through the earth. First it was as if he were in some extremely boggy mud, and then it was as if he were moving through a long shaft and finally plunging into the coldest water that he had ever known. From instinct, his eyes closed immediately. The cold felt like daggers in his chest. He knew that he must simply swim for the surface if he was to survive. After what seemed like an eternity, he was able to break the surface of the water and draw a breath. It was a painful breath but a breath nevertheless. He repeated the process another time or two before opening his eyes.
When he opened his eyes, he found himself in an underground cave of some sort. When he made it out of the water, he found his body temperature beginning to regain at least some of the lost heat. But even with the extra warmth, he was still very cold.
After a few minutes he was able to stand, and it was at this point he noticed a thin elderly bald headed man with a white beard. He was sitting by a campfire, and occasionally he would poke at the fire with a stick. At first he thought the old man was simply ignoring him, but after the longest while he spoke softly without looking towards e in the slightest.
