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

My name is Beth Ball, the author of the Age of Azuria series, which we’ll be exploring in this podcast.
