The Portal of Tears
The Portal of Tears is a fantasy adventure series written for a younger audience. Centering around the central character of Trisha Banymor, the series features all the magic and adventure you'd expect from a Varkas story, with special emphais on the power of loyalty, friendship and family.
She'll Fight for her Family
Thirteen-year-old Trisha Banymor has little reason to worry about the Fey. It’s been more than six centuries since their dreaded Queen swept across the land in her campaign to destroy humankind. Now, the Fey are rarely seen. Most live apart from the rest of the world, locked behind the magical barrier known as the Shimmering.
But after Trisha’s mother, aunt, and younger cousin all fall ill with a sudden and inexplicable sickness, an unexpected messenger arrives to announce that Trisha is the only one who can save them. To do so, she’ll need to step through a magical portal and into the world beyond the Shimmering—the lands of the Fey.
Faced with the truth of an unexpected heritage, Trisha must find the courage to face herself and fight for her family. Accompanied by her best friend and her loyal protector, Trisha undertakes a dangerous quest filled with magical wonders, new allies, and a fearsome enemy bent on destroying everything she loves.
