"This second installment of the Militess and Mage series is non-stop magical fantasy with a dark and twisted mien... If you are looking for a fantasy series that lifts you out of the realm of young adult in emotion, outlook, and consequences, you've found it here."

A Castle to Keep
She’s a leader, a soldier, a pawn. But she’s never a damsel in distress.
He’s a necromancer, a healer, a protector. And he’ll do anything to aid her.
Separate they’re vulnerable. Together they might survive their enemy’s deadly schemes.
Militess Halina has claimed numerous victories on and off the battlefield for King Vernard and Ursinum. Now she’s under siege inside her own castle, held by enemies determined to start a war and to condemn her lover as both a king-killer and a child-slayer.
Sun Mage Gethen commands life and death, but even his tremendous power may not be enough to free Halina from her captors or to defeat a resurrected evil that feeds on the kingdom’s most innocent victims.
In a battle for souls and survival, a powerful warrior fights for the kingdom she serves and the man she loves, even as her beloved mage must triumph over an undying malice to save the woman he adores and the children of two nations.
Magic, adventure, suspense, and love return in the sequel to Monica Enderle Pierce’s The Shadow & The Sun. Epic fantasy that’s perfect for fans of swords and sorcery and a little romance.
