Story Summary

The Firelight of Maalda: A story that unites the real with the fantastical and turns science into magic …

Chalice and her group leave Barenthren to travel to Portalis. There she and her friends discover the beautiful city, its people, its history, and its secret that has been kept hidden for thousands of years. During their stay, they learn that Dar’Maalda has the Firestone and that he plans to use it.

What is the Firestone and what does Dar’Maalda plan to do with it? What are the Naezzi? What does the title, The Firelight of Maalda, really mean? And … what is the secret of Portalis, the secret that has been guarded so jealously for so long – so jealously, that many have given their lives to protect it?

In The Firelight of Maalda, the second novel of the trilogy, The Legend of the Raie’Chaelia, you find out. It is a tale of intrigue and wonder where two opposite worlds collide in an explosive journey that leads Chalice and her friends to the dark islands lurking just beyond the horizon of Ielieria, where the Firelight of Maalda sits … and waits.

Praise for The Raie'Chaelia

"Douthit’s love of words is apparent and her use of language highly inventive. She has a firm grip on believable dialogue."
~ Kirkus Reviews

"Lively, fast-paced and satisfyingly complex! Can’t wait for the second in the trilogy!"
~ Diane Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"An exceptional tale with plot twists and turns that cannot be predicted. If you like Eragon, you will like this. It keeps you wanting more."
~ Ian Derrick

“This was SUCH an epic fantasy. I haven’t read fantasies for a while, and I’m glad to come back to them. I was taken to the worlds of the author’s imagination and I felt that same “childhood” feeling I’ve felt while reading countless fantasy books, such as C.S. Lewis’ and J.R.R. Tolkein. This story was so original! Loved everything about it. I fell in love with the characters, the setting was INCREDIBLE, and the background story was so magical. You immediately get pulled in by the mystery and the curious feeling you get that there’s more to this story…”
~ Rabiah, Confessions of a Readaholic

“The main character, Chalice, was very likable. I felt like I really knew her, which is always a good thing. The plot, if broken down to the bare bones of it, was rather like Graceling, and Chalice, I thought, was like Katsa when she fought. I found this a good thing, since I loved Graceling and ended up enjoying this book as well. Readers of fantasy will love this story.”
~ Rida, Raindrop Reflections

“The Raie’Chaelia has a brilliant storyline. I tried to savor each and every word that came off the page. The descriptions weren’t too over the top for me. You could practically imagine almost the whole thing. The characters were so easy to love. Chalice quickly earned my respect, with her amazing skill to swiftly take down enemies. My eyes didn’t even close to blink. Excuse me as I let them rest for a moment.”
~ Suzanne and Lucky, Cup of Tea Reviews

“This is a beautifully written story. Melissa Douthit must be a wordsmith! She weaves the language in such a way that the reader is enthralled by the story. This is original and unique in a world where sometimes stories can seem similar. Her world building skills are incredible leaving us with fascinating scenes that come alive from the pages. Her characters are the stuff a person wants to be made of: clever, brave, strong, honorable, driven, loyal, and loving.”
~ Beverly, The Wormhole
