I'm very excited to have a beautiful new cover for Ghosts of Heiland, the first part of Heir of Scars I.
Adria is at a turning point as the series begins, and Vanessa Bettencourt captures the feeling of isolation, even other-worldliness so well here.
I am hard at work on new Heir of Scars projects, as well. Watch out for some exciting announcements in the coming weeks!
Crossroads and Crossed Swords is now available for Kindle. Check out a preview on the left.
This is a very exciting part of the storylines began in Spires and Mountains -- or in Book I, for Adria...
The Imperial throne of Somana remains empty. While the heir's family plot to maintain their power, forces within and beyond the city plot against them.
In the wake of his victory, Kirlin Gerard is stripped of his titles and cast into the underworld of the Imperial arena to live or die by his skills, his will, and the fickle whims of the Somanan elite.
The Aesidhe tribes of Heiland must make a choice in the face of an even greater threat. Do they at last begin the Long Retreat the elders have long spoken of? Mateko, Shisha, and Duke Preinon Watelomoksho must offer the counsel, the wisdom, and the arms of the Runners, to whatever fate remains them.
And as Adria Idonea walks a strange land, hunted by assassins, she makes a discovery that will cast her history as an Aesidhe against her future as the Heir of Heiland.
At seventeen years of age, Adria Idonea has already seen both sides of war. Once princess in a citadel tower, she followed the ghosts of her childhood to become a Hunter, a healer, and a visionary among the enemy in the Wilding forests of Heiland.
But now Adria has come of age, and a promise she made in haste has bound her to return to her home after long exile. She doesn't know what she will find... but they don't know who she has become.
