"Great story, great fantasy, great characters, all the good things you read a book for tied up in a neat little bundle of well articulated prose... started book two, looking for more from this extremely talented author."

The Shadow & The Sun

Obey her king or follow her heart? What’s a loyal soldier to do when the fate of a world rests on her choice?

Militess Halina is undaunted by the threat of war between her homeland and a neighboring kingdom. She earned her titles by shedding blood and breaking bones, and she’s never met a man she couldn’t command or crush. So when she’s ordered to gain the allegiance of Shadow Mage Gethen, the brother of the enemy king and the guardian of the border between the living and the dead, she expects the negotiations to be simple: Either he’ll pledge his loyalty or she’ll remove his head.

But there’s nothing simple about the shadow mage.

Handsome, formidable, and intriguing, Gethen’s a dangerous necromancer whose own life and powers are imperiled by an ancient menace. He’s a threat to Halina’s lands, her life and, worst of all, her heart. Despite her resolve to bend him to her will, she finds herself falling for him, drawn to his keen wit, sharp tongue, and unwavering commitment to defending not just kings, but commoners too.

Protecting Gethen means defying her king. But refusing to champion him means plunging their world into chaos and losing the only man who’s ever equaled her, the only man she’s ever loved.

Magic, adventure, suspense, and love collide in an epic fantasy that’s perfect for fans of swords and sorcery with a touch of romance and an unapologetically tough heroine.
