The ‘Tales of Citadel’ series is a series of highly successful novels written by the well known Canadian author Viola Grace. There is a total of 51 books published in the series between the years 2012 and 2015. All the novels of the series are set in a contemporary and science fiction world. The common theme of all the novels of the series is the Citadels, which are the places of learning and gaining knowledge, and where only the gifted individuals were protected and very well trained to handle the powers, rather than them being handled by the powers. The motto of the people of the Citadels seems to be the best that they can be. Each and every novel of the series shares a common world with the base of a Sector Guard. The members of the Citadel are frequently subcontracted in order to serve along with the Sector Guard. Many of the novels of the series feature the Terrans, who are the ones with ancestral Terran in them, but not each one of them. The series also features some short stories and novellas which depict that the Terrans share a common universe. Around 2000 Terrans are allowed to go up to the stars which proves that the Terrans were able to live, adapt and love, just like the humans in the wider world.

The first novel of the Tales of Citadel was published under the title ‘Soul Keeper’. It was released by the Ecstasy Books publishing house. The plot of the novel deals with the lives of the main characters Zeyan and Orenn. Zeyan has been described by the author as living in the shadows and keeping her unique talent known only to herself. Over the course of the novel, it is seen that she tries to reach ad console to a close and loved one, after which she gets arrested by her own people. After that, Zeyan tries to have a new start to her new life in the Citadel and is known by her people as the Soul Keeper. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, Zeyan is depicted as being banished by the people of her own race and the special talents that she seems to be developing under the vigilance of the instructors of the Citadel. Soon, a psychic plague sets out in the Citadel, which tends to shatter the mind and body connections. After seeing the effects of the plague, the local people try to call the Sector Guard.

In turn, the Guard calls for the Soul Keeper to help the local people of the Citadel. Now, it seems that the time has come for her return back to home. Orenn is described by the author as being jealous about the life and the love of his cousin Fenn in the Sector Guard. He is able to recognize an effective will when he witnesses it, being the telepath at the Citadel. Later, when Zeyan looks into the eyes of Orenn, he also sees a fruitful future for himself along with her saying by his side and stretching throughout the Citadel. However, he had no idea that the actual future will have things exactly different from what he had seen. The author has described Zeyan as an independent and strong woman, who is determined to use her talent in the best possible way. Even Orenn is described as a strong man with a handsome personality. He seems to be more intrigues by Zeyan. Being a telepath and a psychic, he feels a strong connection towards Zeyan. As the plot of the novel progresses, new twists and bigger surprises are seen, especially with the return of Zeyan to her home in Heschell in order to treat the victims of the plague. Soon, the members of the Citadel and the Sector Guard encounter treachery and danger from a vindictive and untrained talent, because of which things begin to go two ways. Now the skills of everyone are required to set the things right once again. The novel became extremely successful all over the world and set the tone for the other novels of the series, which followed the same path ad became successful as well.

But later, she gets the offer of an espionage from a Citadel, who had come for tea. Aliiva was believed to have a talent of being able to know what the folks think. She seems to have come to terms with, before going on the espionage. But, being alone after leaving her his home and using her special skills on the people of Citadel, were the things that she was not prepared for. Soon, she becomes focussed to learn the etiquettes, self defense skills, and deportment. However, her combat instructors always keep running from her, because of which Aliiva is not able to learn the important things that she was supposed to know.

On the other hand, Baengar is introduced as returning from a very harsh assignment and does not look in the mood to take on a new apprentice. But when he sees Aliiva, he agrees to it. Now, the primary concern of Aliiva seems to be prepared to face any situation that comes in her way. And she very well knows that only Baengar can guide her properly and make her learn the things and skills in a very short time. The primary concern of Aliiva shifts into a more intense thing after the two keep getting to know each other better.Soon, Baengar and Aliiva are sent together on a mission when Baengar realizes that they seem to have a destiny together beyond their line of duty.
