Wall of Lives
In Apollo’s Raven, The Wall of Lives is a transitional wall between the mortal and Otherworld. Covering the Wall of Lives is a fluid tapestry in which everyone’s life threads weave in and out of others from birth to death. Here, the past, the present, and the future merge into one time. The primary protagonist —Catrin, a Celtic warrior princess—can visit this realm with the aid of her raven guide. She has the unique magical ability to manipulate the life threads in the fluid tapestry to alter the future. The Wall of Lives is a metaphor that she has the innate ability to change the future by the decisions she makes in her lifetime. However, to make the right choices, she must understand the past to learn how to fly forward. The concept of the Wall of Lives is based on divine female entities who ruled the fates of gods and men in Norse and Greco-Roman mythology. They spin, measure, and cut the thread life for each person to carry out his or her preordained destiny. The age-old theme as to whether humans can change fate by their decisions is explored in the series.
