The Guide to Yrejveree will serve as a brief introduction to the main areas of this isle which have prose descriptions or stories. In other words, this will eventually be a navigational and factual guide to the entire world.

The stories are listed in their main sequences/threads/areas, but as you read, you will find that the tags cross-refer other areas. The story-threads overlap and intersect. Also bear in mind that these threads exist in a less formal storytelling structure, but this will change/transform when the novel is eventually written.

Domus Exsulis

Home of Exiles, where the Caretaker of Yrejveree resides. The Caretaker was appointed by the Guardian to look after matters on the Isle as she “disappeared”. This is the main area within this storytelling web, home for the records and the main storytellers for Yrejveree.

Home to the Gaernic Exiles sequence, set in Gaeirn, where Deiranetta di Gaeirn ran a court before the ravages of war and political skulduggery caused her fall from grace. There are many courtyards in Domus Exsulis, and it is almost as though they have been spawning to accommodate the growing number of inhabitants. How curious.

Areas Without Stories (YET)

The Grounds
A Lamia’s Bedchamber


An independent city-state which grew around a colony of oversized mushrooms run by citizens of the Glade who wanted autonomy from the Guardian’s “protection”.

Alta Exsilii (incorporating the Lagoon of Secrets)

The Sea of Exiles is a body of water that encircles the faerie isle named Yrejveree. The Lagoon of Secrets and the Siren’s Reef are both areas named by the Guardian and which are a part of Alta Exsilii.

Camena Draconis

“Dragon Mountain” was dubbed “The Volcano of Songs” by the Guardian, rather mockingly as she could not endure the sounds made by the congregation of dragons at every Festival of Songs.

Introduction (from the Guardian’s journal) (fragment)
The Gradon becomes a Fragment of Dreaming

Most of the original Festival of Songs novella has been removed as it is slated to be massively revisited in The Caretaker’s Tale & The Dragon Who Thought She Was A Tree, although some parts of this story-fragment (as with the Caretaker’s) weaves through other parts of this storytelling web. Please do stay tuned for more!

Nemus Animae

The woods of the soul are where the faeries may be found. Erroneously dubbed “The Faerie Grove” by the Guardian, it appears that the woods are far larger and far more dense than she may have originally supposed.

Nemorosum Somnium
