'A Canticle of Two Souls: The Aria of Steel Trilogy'

Raziel is a tortured soul. Soon after finding a speaking sword in a forest, his family is slaughtered by the Rhotian Empire. The twelve year old boy sets out to avenge his family, and destroy the empire.

Alicia, a girl with the power to 'hear' emotions and control them, joins Raziel and his sword, an uneasy truce binding them. Their journey is fraught with peril, and unbeknownst to them the empire is facing threats from within.

Will they find the inner peace they strive for? Can they forgive one another, and themselves? Or will Raziel ultimately become the living nightmare the sword whispers of?
As my first novel (first of a trilogy) reaches the last of it's edits, the choice of a better title arises. And who better to judge between than you, my readers! So without further ado, here is a poll for my first novel's title:

This novel tells the story of two children and a sword. A simple premise, but filled with tragedy and deep themes, it explores the nature of human emotion, and how experiences shape us.

Anytime. Your characters and sculpting are top notch! I started from the opposite (and easier, imo) side of the spectrum, with environments, so my anatomy is off. I can imagine, with some dedicated effort, you'd pass me within a year. I don't paint anymore either, unfortunately.
