“I find this story empowering to women.”
“The author really shines in her characterization of the fairies. The way she describes them made them come alive in my imagination. Her voicing and vision for them is brilliant.”
Azaeli Hammerfel has been named a knight, and is thrilled to be on her first true quest alongside her parents’ guild. Their journey to see Prince Eron and his expecting wife safely to Lake Kordelya is shrouded with a sense of impending doom that tests the strength of His Majesty’s Elite and the love that Azi and Rian, the Mage, share. When Kythshire’s fairies find themselves a target of the same threat, an unlikely champion presents himself.
Tib Nullen has had a hard life. He’s just twelve years old, but as a field slave in the Sorcerer-run country of Sunteri, he has seen more toil, loss, and cruelty than anyone should be made to endure. When tragedy strikes his family, Tib finds himself flung into a plot much bigger than he. In his struggle to make sense of his thoughts, which he fears are not fully his own, he learns he has a greater purpose: to help restore the Wellspring of Sunteri.
“One of the best books I’ve ever read! It was beautifully written, very descriptive, and full of life.”
“I love the fantasy land that’s been created.”
Author note: I have always wanted to read fantasy that included fairies, but I could never find a book or series that portrayed them the way I wanted them to be portrayed and gave them enough attention in the story. They always seem to be portrayed as either pseudo-humans with mostly human personalities, or as fleeting creatures you only get a glimpse of. I think my favorite thing about writing this series is that I can include the fairies I imagine, and give them the attention I feel they deserve.
