The purpose of the Hoshiyan Chronicles


In the depth of imagination’s realm lies the saga of the Light of Justice. This tale, like a child has grown and sometimes seemed to have a will of its own. What began as a mere spark blossomed into a raging inferno of epic proportions, where fantasy dances on the precipice of reality.

In forging this fantastical world, I tread the delicate balance between truth and illusion, sculpting a narrative where spirituality births miracles and the extraordinary becomes mundane. From the levitating mystics of transcendental meditation to the awe-inspiring feats of Shaolin monks, the boundaries of possibility blur into insignificance.

To maintain a theme, a writer must fill in the necessary parts to make the story flow.

For example, I thought I would have a one-book introduction and quickly get to the principal character. Instead, I soon realized that to make the story credible, it was necessary to give the readers a logical pathway, even though the story is fantasy. I created a series where I run along the fine edge between fantasy and reality. I believe a successful novel should be like a successful lie: 99% true and 1% false.

Developing one’s spirituality allows them to do feats that regular people can’t. According to people who do transcendental meditation, they can not only levitate but move about in a levitated state. I have never seen it, but I have spoken to people who have levitated.

Shaolin monks combine tremendous physical exercise with spiritual development. I saw a documentary where a monk concentrates and then shoves a skewer through his arm and withdraws it with no loss of blood. I don’t recommend anyone try it without years of preparation.

For me to credibly reach a person with the abilities I give the Light of Justice, it takes generations of increasing spirituality. For this reason, I wrote book four, Forging the Light of Justice. The principal character for the development of the Light of Justice is his great-grandmother, Queen Nina Arieli, a leader of the Musar (ethics) movement and a teacher. Each following generation increases their spirituality. Her grandson marries a woman of high moral standards. Her best friend and husband become part of the family. The unity they display increases the level of spirituality until the queen gives birth to a boy who, at seven, is already a prophet. That is the Light of Justice’s elder brother.

The series is written in clean language. No one will feel embarrassed to read them. The series is based on three principles: Faith, Righteousness and Justice.

Throughout the Hoshiyan Chronicles, Professor Yoshua Rosenberg complains about General Aharon Dori, the storyteller. Unknown to Yoshua, he is Crown Prince Yoshua Aluz, prince of the Tribe of Asher. To paraphrase the professor, “Why does the storyteller keep killing off main characters?”

The professor still has to realize that Aharon’s stories are to teach faith, righteousness, and justice. The point is to teach the greatness of King Daniel Arieli. The character of King Daniel Arieli is loosely based on King David.

In the Hoshiyan Chronicles, every word is a symphony of faith, righteousness, and justice, harmonizing into a melody that resonates with the soul. And though darkness may threaten to engulf the realm, the light of hope shines eternal, embodied in the unwavering spirit of King Daniel, who greets each dawn with a smile, defying fate with his unyielding resolve of brotherly love.
