What happened to the rest of the series of Stones Quest?

Posted in: Journal by LaRene Ellis on March 05, 2012

On Valentines 2011, the doctors found an egg size cancerous tumor in my head. One year later, it is virtually gone. The egg size tumor was too large for surgery. So they used radiation and chemo to remove it. The tumor decided to grow in an area of my brain that affected my motor and communication skills. The doctors weren’t sure what abilities I would be able to keep after the radiation to my head.


Slowly, some abilities returned. A week before Christmas 2011 my creative ability showed up. With each week, my ability to write has increased. I do not know how well they are compared to my previous writing ability. Right now, I’m grateful to have anything back.


In Nov. 2009, I was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer. My cancer was an incurable and fast growing type. One year, you receive a monogram and everything is fine. You go back the following year on the due date of your monogram and you have stage four breast cancer.


In the beginning, they requested an MRI for the brain and the cancer was not there. So it means, the cancer took three years to develop in my head. They found the tumor because I lost my balance and ability to write my name. My words were slurred among other things. I do not mind saying, the year 2011 was a very hard year.


Before I contracted breast cancer, I started to write a children/young adult series. The cancer did not completely stop me from working on the series. Until, the cancer spread to my head. In January 2011, the series came to a sketching halt. The steroids they gave me in February caused me to loose my ability to process my world let alone a factious galaxy and people.


My prayers and others have been answered. I am so grateful to be granted the opportunity to write again. I apologize to my fans for the delays that the tumor has caused. Some of you have contacted the publisher and asked about the rest of the books. When my life fell apart, I was almost ready to deliver the book four.


Right now, book four is with the art team. As soon as, they produce a cover. It will be out. The publisher feels that they can have the book out by May 2012. I am sorry that it is not sooner. I keep hoping that something will happen and it will be out in April.


I am so sorry to leave you hanging, wondering what was coming into the galaxy that would cause Ghonllier and the Master Stones grief. When you finish book four, you will be left wondering how he’s going to rid the galaxy of the menace. How will he be able to protect the galaxy from the unseen forces of danger?


My creative ability is back, but I do not know for how long. It has become important to finish the series. Since Christmas 2011, I have finished book five of the series. Now, they have the book at the editor. It is hoped to be out in the fall.


While I was writing book five, something happened that I did not expect. Ghonllier and the Master Stones had to clean up some curses and promises that Sethus the first Master of the Galaxy made. The Master Stones would not allow Sethus to finish them during his reign. I wondered why? They insisted on Sethus’s progenitors to end it. The fifth installment of the series really caused me to want to know what happened between Bog and Sethus. How did this evil sorcerer curse his family? The Master Stones weren’t always preset in the Ellisarius galaxy. What caused them to appear in the galaxy at the time that they did?


So I’ve sketched out the story and I found that there is something very interesting there. I figured that some fans would want to learn the same things that I found out. We will be adding a sixth book to the series. Book six will end the series of Stones Quest. Thank you for falling in love with a story that I had no intention of publishing. I love it too and I appreciate your prayers and support during a rough four years.

A Curse that Destroys Lives

Posted in: books by LaRene Ellis on April 12, 2010

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Stones Quest Series

He read:


I know there are numerous Master’s between us But the Master Stones have shown you unto me. I know that you are a descendant of mine. I can see the fear in your heart to become the Master of the Galaxy. Do not be afraid of what the Stones are asking of you. For I see, you do not want to be the Master. This will be a grave mistake if you don’t accept the mantel.

The Master Stones have shown me your time and I’m writing this to you in hopes of helping you stop the curse that has been placed on our family. The war you are in isn’t your brother’s fault. It is mine or at least it is because with me. It hurts me to see my beloved galaxy being torn apart in your time.

I do not know if the Master Stones completely understand what caused your war. They could or would not tell me because it isn’t my place to stop it. I know it feels like a huge burden being placed on your shoulders. It is your job and destiny to stop the destruction of this galaxy.

From personal experience, I can tell you that your greatest weapon will be knowledge. Seek it and learn about my time so you can understand the origin of this curse.

To be the Master of the Stones, you need to completely free yourself of any negative feelings or thoughts. The Master Stones cannot work with a person who has negative issues. The Stones cannot function on negative thoughts. You can’t help but have them with all that I see in your days. But you will need to rid yourself of it.

The curse came from your great, great grandfather. He placed the curse on our family out of anger towards my wife and myself. He is her father. He is an evil sorcerer who has caused the people of my days a lot of grief.  I know my wife’s father was upset about his powers being past on to half-breeds, as he called them.

Your sister is very gifted and she has great powers. Protect her. She is important to you and the Master Stones. Together, the two of you can stop the curse and rule the galaxy together. You will become the most powerful Masters of the Galaxy because you’re twins. You will be the first Master to have duel leadership and powers. Use them wisely and the two of you will go down in history as the greatest Masters of the Galaxy.

Let go of your fears and be the man. May you prevail is my wish. I hope this helps you. Your loving great, great, grandfather,
