In anticipation of the release of my newest work, The Trailokya Trilogy, Book 1: The Shadow Soul, I have created an online live companion book at Wattpad. This site is a great resource for writers. It allows you to organically grow your work with the feedback of peers. Feedback, as you know, is an invaluable resource for writers, especially those who are still finding their voice. Additionally, Wattpad’s service allows you to keep the document live. This means you can make changes in real time, something that adds to the allure of a companion book.
The Trailokya universe is complicated and instead of getting bogged down in the creatures and places, sometimes concepts, this companion explains the meaning of common terms found in the books. The initial installments will be for the first book, but reader beware! The subsequent releases will find this live document updated with the complete glossary of terms throughout the whole series, meaning there will be spoilers in years to come. If you don’t want the story spoiled, then stick to the glossary at the end of each book, until you’re finished and looking for more information to enhance your understanding of the Trailokya.
The Trailokya Trilogy, Book 1: The Shadow Soul by K. Williams
Enter a world you think you know.
K. Williams weaves a tale that will alter your perception of reality and put long held beliefs on the examining board. Are you ready to enter the gates of Zion and learn the truth? Our reality is only a projection of the knowing. The knowing is key to rising and going home.
A science fiction/fantasy trilogy that follows the rise and fall of souls in Trailokya, a realm of three worlds created after the dawn of time. These three worlds gave rise to the human myths of Heaven and Hell.

Trailokya, Book One: The Shadow Soul – Prologue (The Trailokya Lore) (C) 2003, 2005, 2013 K. Williams – Coming April 2015
Beyond the vales of perceived reality, exist the borders of space and time. At the dawn of existence, the universe was thought and one, named Nirvana. Nirvana was a world of technology beyond comprehension, where thought commanded reality, populated by beings unbound by flesh, atman of immense ascendancy called the Jñanasattva. Over the distance of years, thought became increasingly formed and the beings of Nirvana created two further planes, each infinitely vast and separate from the next, in which they could experience and play out their ideas. Time lengthened further and these new planes, the Astral and Avernus universes, which provided an unbounded existence in new resonances were found wanting.
Adonai, King of Zion, and a Jñanasattva of Nirvana, ordered the creation of what he called Trailokya, a trinity between three further territories: Jahannam, Samsara and Zion. Trailokya would serve as home for the curious children of Nirvana, each of who would be the life force that lived at the core of the new beings called sattva, the body kind. Jahannam was an echo of Zion, a dark mirror image, a grave and prison, while Samsara provided innumerable worlds floating in a sea of untapped potentials. Grateful to their ruler for the gift that brought them such freedom, the first children of Nirvana populated Zion, and called one another duta. The duta were an ascending race that never died but instead reformed themselves as their energies changed. Their favored form was that of a hairless primate, strong and tall, but graced with elegant wings and the speed and power of light. For them, Zion was made a boundless globe of land and sea beneath a blue sky, always stretching and growing into infinity, basked in the glow of a golden sun and awed by a silver moon and her stars. If ever they wished, they could return to the world that created them bound by no requirement or position…
