Yang in Disguise
Eldyr, crown prince of the kingdom of Anaparia, has never exactly fit in with his war-loving father nor his athletic brother. But when his father decides that Eldyr should go to war against rebellious peasants, the prince rebels by running away from the only home he’s ever known. Changing his identity completely in one very strange disguise, he braves dry deserts, dank dungeons, and disrespectful dwarves in an effort to find his own path. --- The Yin-Yang sign is a circle with one wavy line going through its center. One side is black, the other white, with smaller circles of the opposite color inside of each. The sign overall symbolizes harmony and balance. The Yang is the white. It represents the male gender, and often strength or power as well. The Yin is the black, and represents females. Thus the title, Yang in Disguise. Yang in Disguise was a mixture of many different ideas. Adora has always enjoyed writing about royalty, but at the same time she wanted to write about someone who rebelled against what was expected of them. Yang in Disguise is not just about liberating the unfortunate and avoiding conflict; it is about the balance between the fist and the peace sign—Yin-Yang working together, in harmony.
