Episode Introduction 

Hello adventurers, and welcome to the World of Azuria podcast. In this episode, we dive into the world of Azuria with chapter eight of Aurora, the prequel novella for the Age of Azuria epic fantasy series. 

My name is Beth Ball, and I’m the author of the Age of Azuria series, which we’ll be exploring in this podcast. In some episodes, we’ll travel through the high fantasy world of Azuria as I read chapters from the novels and stories. In others, we’ll uncover the lore behind Azuria and answer your questions about the world, characters, and more. 

If you enjoy high fantasy worlds, immersive settings, nature-based magic, and vivid characters, then this podcast is for you. 

Let’s start our adventure!
