Raised far from the shores of his ancestral Scottish home after the mysterious death of his eminent father, surrounded by the children of princes, diplomats, billionaires, and those of privilege most vulnerable to terrorists and kidnappers, Ian Thorne seems much the same as all the others requiring such an extreme pinnacle of protection and anonymity.
Only . . . Ian has a secret.
He is, in reality, nothing like his fellow classmates. He can do things others can’t. Little things. His eyesight is keener, his hearing and sense of smell are better, and he is stronger, faster, and frankly, far more intelligent than his peers.
These are abilities he has learned never to divulge. But there are secrets his closest friends do know about, like the freaky, vivid dreams of ancient battles and a beautiful blond warrior woman that he can’t seem to get out of his head. And then there are those other dreams . . . of drowning in the murky green loch near the estate where he lived until he was five.
Are these incessant nightmares actually distorted memories from a past he can’t remember? After all, he was supposedly with his father on the day he died. But what about the rest? He is certain that the Scots haven’t adorned themselves with animal pelts and ancient battle armor or waged war with swords and spears since antiquity. Nothing about his unusual abilities or the vividly bizarre night terrors that threaten his sanity makes any sense.
But all that is about to change.
Summoned back to his ancestral home in Scotland days before his seventeenth birthday, Ian is completely unaware of the danger that awaits him or the truth about his heritage that is soon to be unveiled.
Alone and isolated within the imposing old manor where he once lived with his father, surrounded by wild forests, brooding Scottish terrain, and a deep, misty loch where a mysterious ghostly lady walks in the early hours before dawn, he must decide what is real and whom can he trust. He must delve into secrets others would prefer remain buried.
Here in the remote homeland of his people, Ian is about to make a discovery that will change him forever. Not only is the truth about his past a lie, but . . .
The ancient Celtic myths are true!
And sweet, innocent, responsible Lydie? Well, she may be hiding the biggest secret of them all.

But to stop him, Janan must learn to overcome the fears he instilled in her and embrace her own dark magic while Laurelin must accept that some things are more important than an A+. Now, they will have to trust each other, and themselves, to stop the encroaching evil. Otherwise, both the human and djinn realms will fall to the tide of death and dark magic this war will unleash.

The Host wants to know what the Academy was trying to hide and why the Fallen agreed to it. They want the Instrument of War, the one thing that can tip the Eternity War in their favour and put an end to the stalemate. Any impact on the Academy staff, students or buildings is just collateral damage.
Mitch would like to forget that the last year ever happened, but that doesn’t seem likely with Little Red Riding Hood now teaching Teratology. The vampire isn’t quite as terrifying as he first thought, but she’s not the only monster at the Academy. The Fallen are spying on everyone, the new Principal is an angel and there’s an enchanting exchange student with Faerie blood.
Angry and nervous of the angels surrounding him, Mitch tries to put the pieces together. He knows that Hayley is the Archangel Gabriel. He knows that she can determine the course of the Eternity War. He also knows that the Fallen will do anything to hide Gabriel from the Host – even allowing an innocent girl to be kidnapped.
Instrument of War continues from Instrument of Peace, the first book in the Symphony of the Cursed trilogy, as Mitch, Hayley and Nikola return for their final year in the International Academy of Magic at Lake Moawhango in New Zealand.
Review comments for Book I, Instrument of Peace:

~~~~~ Excerpt ~~~~~
“Even if most of it has disappeared.” It is a Venetian proverb. No citizen of Venice can ever find his way with ease. That is the nature of the city. It has risen and fallen so many times over the centuries to accommodate its sole tenant, water, that what remains of its canals and bridges and cobblestones cannot service human beings in any way. Only birds, it is said, understand Venice. And most of them don’t speak the language.
It is considered a throwback to their Roman ancestry that Italians will settle where they please. No one ever says, “I live in Venice.” They say, “I live with Venice.” Rather than be embarrassed to lose themselves in their own canals, Venetians have learned to lie with a style beyond reckoning. Lying is highly fashionable in Venezia, much like concrete is in Milano. A man cannot be judged by his car or his house (since anything one owns is forfeit to memory in this town), so he must be judged by his wealth of dissimulation. If a Venetian man attends a party he was not invited to and, by way of excuse, takes the hostess by the arm and proclaims that she is his wife, he is applauded for his boldness of action. Unless of course the same maneuver was already executed earlier in the evening, or afterwards by a more debonair rogue.
Lies make history here, and everyone remembers a good one. Poor liars are eventually weeded out and seeded somewhere else to grow roots of honesty. Frequently in my travels I heard it said that there is nothing so honest as a Venetian abroad. Whether that springs from an honest relief (or simple lack) of professional competition remains a mystery.
Houses in Venice are seldom permanent homes. Venetians walk until they are tired and then occupy the nearest crooked tower. This would be a hygienic nightmare if cleanliness and coziness were not preeminent virtues. Mind you, no house in Venice is neat, but few are misused. Poor housekeepers do not last long, and they are always found out.
In this transitory world, most everyone will be someone’s guest in their life, and generosity is the city’s currency.
That sense of kinship is strong in Venice. Families cannot exist without it. Siblings and uncles are lost in the endless shuffle to be raised by other parents, other couples, or even other children. Grandparents are switched and spouses are rearranged to lie and wait for new love and solace that lasts in the knowledge that Venice changes forever.
Maybe it’s the lies, maybe it’s that the cityscape is rewritten by the moment or that each night grants them new families and lovers to entertain, but Venetians are widely regarded as the nation’s best storytellers. It is how they communicate with their city. They tell stories about themselves. They tell stories about stories. These stories pass on to new homes and canals. After several years of spending evenings this way, a keen Venetian has an ear for who has said what, when, but rarely where. And because lying is so stylish, the protagonist of these stories is an eternal variable. But sometimes a yarn is so fresh it must have an author. Proud friends will know their companions survive somewhere in the city by the fables that return to them.
Prepare yourself for heart-pounding suspense in the world of Obscured, where nothing is as it seems and danger lurks in unexpected places.
The pressure is on to choose the dark or the light. The futures of humanity, the fae, and the entire planet all depend on Siri. But how can one girl heal the rift between fae and stop the evil plans of the Shade Council?

If you are reading this book without reading the Medicine Wheel Trilogy: A Beginners’ Guide first, the Intermediate Guide will not make too much sense to you. The second book in the trilogy adds to the structure of the medicine wheel.
There are no shortcuts in learning the medicine wheel. You should learn the medicine wheel one step at a time as in life. First you crawl, then walk, and finally, run.
Today’s society is so bombarded with electrical stimulation and sensory overload that we have lost our contact with nature. When my friend lost his power for three days during a hurricane, he had no TV, telephone, or computer. He thought he was going to lose his mind. I, on the other hand, welcomed the power loss because the house felt quiet without electrical power stimulating my environment. The Intermediate Guide teaches you to be aware of your senses and to appreciate Mother Earth / Turtle Island.
In writing the Intermediate Guide, I want you to explore the dynamics of the medicine wheel and appreciate how the medicine wheel can be extended.
