Or will the bold Magus Prenthal conquer her without a single spell?
They’ll risk forever death for one last chance together…
Nuala of Glengowyn hasn’t left her home city in over a century, but not by choice. Her skill as a weapons master has made her a prisoner of her people. Held apart, protected in the extreme—until Sorcerers attack the human city of Sinnale.
Sent to supply her unique magical arrows to help the humans, she is far from free. The elf king and queen have sent a bodyguard, a fearsome warrior whose reputation has no rival. The only man she has ever wanted. Einar of Glengowyn.
Einar is known as a battle-crazed destroyer, so feared among elves he’s called by a single name: Darkness. And he has only one weakness—Nuala. Their union is forbidden, for melding their magics could destroy Nuala’s gifts. Yet as they journey to the war-torn city, no royal decree is a match for two hundred years of pent-up desire.
But even if they escape the war zone, their lives still hang in the balance. They must confront their sovereigns and prove love makes them stronger—or face their deaths.

As it becomes clear that the dark-haired woman is much more than she seems, Trevain is unprepared to uncover the staggering secrets behind her innocent facade. Neither the captain nor the princess can imagine that their lives will become forcibly entwined as a common enemy threatens both of their worlds…

Dr. James has always enjoyed fantasy books because he had been reading them ever since he was a little boy. What he doesn’t know, however, is that he is about to embark on a fantasy quest that he will never forget. James had been suffering from severe migraine attacks, or so he thought. During an episode of syncope, he is brought into the fantasy world of Edonia where he is in unfamiliar territory, in more ways than one. He is in a new land that he has never seen before, in a different time period, he has a different hairstyle and color, and he has an unfamiliar face. As it turns out, he has transformed into a she, an assassin magnet, where he must acquire his skills that he learned in the 21st century to save a land from political scandal and an even bigger conflict in the heart of everyone’s worse imagination. The split between the two worlds is a smooth reboot of old concepts, including the complications of gender identity and responsibilities of the human spirit. Alternating chapters spread a clear view of the situations in both worlds and the conflicts presented. The transition from the real world to Edonia holds the reader’s attention with charismatic dialogue, powerful characters, and cutting edge scenes that spill action and adventure, feeding all styles of hunger in an easily accessible journey that anyone will be able to pick up and enjoy, even those who don’t like fantasy.

Follow the lives of two immortals, Dorian Thorne and Mathias Sorensen, from their early years, to the apocalypse and beyond. These two men first cross paths in Victorian London, an encounter which does not leave them on friendly terms. They are fated to meet again though, in the present, the year 2095. From the Embers is not only a story of civilization trying to rebuild after the end of the world, but also one of two men trying to rebuild their wounded and shattered souls out of the ashes of their pasts. It is a voyage of self discovery that takes three hundred years and along the way they find that their lives may not have been by chance. There is a plan behind their immortality and it may be one of sinister design.
Mathias Sorensen was born in 1776, near Copenhagen, Denmark. The son of a fisherman, he’d always dreamed of being a painter, but that dream was not meant to be. Instead, his life spirals downhill when, at age nineteen, he meets a man named Gunnar Pederson. Gunnar takes him in, but his cruel appetites destroy Mathias’ life. He eventually flees, but a broken shell of the man he was, whose only recourse is to rebuild himself in the image of his tormentor.
Dorian Thorne was born, thirty-six years later, in the East End of London, England. Caught up in the cholera outbreak of 1832, he learns of his immortality early in life, but at an awful price. Cursed to walk the earth for over a century, unable to remember his early years, he eventually learns that he suppressed these memories because they were too painful. Shunned and forced from the only person he cared about, the experience would scar his ability to let anyone get close to him for the rest of his life.
The two men meet, for the first time, in London in 1862, but part three years later after a volatile and unhealthy relationship. It will be over two hundred years before they see each other again, both having found love and loss, been involved in some shady and less than legal situations, witnessed the end of the world, and tried and failed to gain peace and understanding of themselves. In the end, they begin to realize that their lives are somehow, inexplicably, entwined and they find the keys that may just lead to the ultimate explanation of who they are and how they can begin to heal.
