Spera - volume 1

Lono's life as a princess consisted of sitting, reading, and dreaming – until the day Pira, princess of a neighboring kingdom, arrived with news of a waking nightmare! With the help of Pira's best friend – a fire spirit in the form of a dog named Yonder – the princesses now find themselves in a race against evil. The goal: Spera, a magical realm of which the princesses had only ever heard the tallest tales. The prize: their very lives! 

Olivier drew a whole chapter in this first volume. There also is a short story drawn by Cécile at the end of the book that can be read online ( Chobo: the warrior tabby).

Spera - volume 3

Exiled princesses Pira and Lono seek the Treasure of the Waterfall, only to be confronted by the villainous Nole and Kyle, two remnants from Lono's fallen kingdom. The disastrous encounter leads to the princesses being split up and their friend -- the fire spirit Yonder -- sapped of all power. Separated for the first time since their escape to Spera, the princesses must now journey to the forest of the wood spirit Pom in order to reunite and save their friend.

Spera - Ascension of the Starless vol.1

The Starless Queen is plotting an invasion of Spera, and has sent the merciless General Zeal to secure its capital. Unfortunately for her, the Queen's obsession with killing Princesses Pira and Lono – her only daughter, and the last link to a conquered kingdom – has resulted in the pair learning of her plans through captured scouts. What began for the Princesses as a hunt for treasure is now a perilous journey to warn the Speran King, leading Pira and Lono up a monster-infested mountain, through a village populated by crazed warriors, and down dark tunnels walled with madness itself. 

We worked together on a whole chapter of this book, as Atelier Sentô.

Spera - Ascension of the Starless vol.2

Vincent is a shipwrecked privateer who has lost his crew to winged monsters. Aya is an orphan seeking revenge on the Starless army who killed her family. Through a series of unlikely coincidences, the warrior cat Chobo unites the two and leads them to Princesses Pira and Lono, who are making their final preparations to leave Spera and do battle with the evil Starless Queen. As the fire spirit Yonder infiltrates the Starless-occupied Plain Castle, the newly formed group is taken by surprise by another swarm of winged monsters. Can Yonder survive his mission, and can the Princesses trust their new friends? 

Olivier drew a chapter cover illustration inside this volume.
