COG: Great Nations – 1st Edition (Metal Hardcover)


Children of Gaia: The Great Nations of Rendaraia | Ultra-Rare Metal Hardcover by Jayel Draco


In this 150-page illustrated novel from the Children of Gaia series, we explore the backstory and lore of Rendaraian culture. The five Great Nations of Rendaraia have stood for centuries as strongholds of culture, magic, science, and military strength. When, one by one, the Nations mysteriously fall—each destroyed in a day, with no word or warning—the intrepid scholar Jan’Ka’Zian sets out to record a complex network of intertwined cultures on the edge of destruction. Jayel Draco’s gorgeous illustrations present a vivid picture of elaborate cityscapes and mountain vistas, vast skyfaring fleets, and fantastic flora and fauna.

This ultra-rare, signed, numbered metal hardcover explores the cultures, histories, and social structures of the five Great Nations, narrated and illustrated from the perspective of Jan’Ka’Zian, a fictional character from the Children of Gaia series. Only 50 of these hardcovers were printed, and there’s very few left… Get yours before they’re gone!

COG: War & Horses (Paperback)

Children of Gaia: War & Horses - Paperback

These 128 pages of fast punching grit take place deep in the dustbowl of the newly formed Republic of Draven, the old aristocracy coexists with a new government in an uneasy peace that’s often broken by conflict. Famine and drought wrack the once-fertile region—and violence is a spark to dry grass.

Into this discord walks a shadowy figure: the Triggerman. He seems to be many things, but he is rarely—if ever—what he seems. The only sure thing about him is that he leaves a trail of chaos in his wake. Following that path is journalist Landon Ford, documenting the Triggerman’s exploits and digging for the truth of his identity.

War & Horses is Ford’s work, the first in a series of dime-store books popular in the new world of Rendaraia and back home in Terra, and believed to be fiction. But the Triggerman is very real—and his true purpose may become the story of Ford’s life.

5 star Reader's Favorite - shiny metal stars“The Great Nations of Rendaraia is a scholastic account of the five great nations and their mysterious downfall. The first part briefly documents the history of Arilyness, Lithicus, Mithera, Danrock, and Noda. Each of these nations concentrates on a particular field of learning, from the spiritual knowledge of Mithera, to the architects of Danrock. This specialisation is only possible due to the Hodgeskeen, a nomadic nation that ties the five together through the trade opportunities and transport their air ships provide. One day the Hodgeskeen arrive at the capital of Mithera and find it in ruins with no survivors and no clues as to who or what toppled the nation. The Great Nations fall one after the other, but nobody knows how until it’s too late.

This book is a visual feast filled with detailed maps and stunning illustrations by author, Jayel Draco. The narrative focuses more on the culture and origins of the great nations than the story of what happened to them, but this fits the book’s presentation as a scholar’s effort to preserve history. I love that the author included homosexual relationships and non-binary gendered characters. Rendaraia is one of the most fantastical worlds I’ve ever encountered. The only drawback I found is the names of people and places are a little difficult to remember. The Great Nations of Rendaraia is the sort of book you tuck away with the most treasured novels in your library, removing it from the shelf every now and then simply to admire it.”—Caitlin O’Connor
