 Wizards!  Unrequited love!  War!  Spylords!

Book 4 of The Princess Maura Tales—a five-book saga.  If you love sword/sorcery and action/adventure stories, Wall Of Conquest should be your next read.

After battling the evil wizard Zedek in the cave of the Mother Bogazkoy, Maura discovers that Dorak, the love of her life, and Gitar, Empress of the Dinii, a bird-like people, have vanished.  Most assume they have perished.

Grief-stricken, Maura is determined that the child she is carrying shall become the ruler of the Bhuttanian Empire––but this means civil war!  Maura must travel to the capital of Bhuttan and confront Dorak’s first wife Jezra and seize the throne from her.  Only then can Maura restore order to the Empire.

Deep in her heart, she believes that Dorak and Empress Gitar are still alive and hopes to find them.  She sends KiKu, her spylord, and Timon, an untested royal scribe, on a secret mission to the temple of Bhuttu where mysterious bird-like creatures have been seen.  Maura’s quest to find Dorak is not without risk, but nothing will prevent her from finding him and ascending to the throne.

As Jill and I were ready to go to college and start a new chapter in our lives, I can tell you this about how Jill and I were raised by our parents. Understanding that the first job of a parent is to protect their children and teach their children to be responsible adults, what could I say? Our parents did the best job that a parent could do. Both Jill and I are the most loving and obedient and smart and responsible kids anyone could ever want. We did not drink, gamble, sniff glue, smoke, take dope, or get pregnant. We both got great marks in school. Over the past five years, of the hairbrush era, Jill was spanked only 6 times. That was not a lot over 5 years. Jill turned out to be such a confident and responsible young lady. I was even impressed with her. Mom taught her well and Jill learned well. Over that same five years, I was spanked 13 times and I was caned that last time to total 14 times I was punished. However, that was only three times per year. I never was punished when I did not deserve to be punished, so I earned every one of those Spankings. However, I turned out to be the most respectful and loving and nice son anyone could ask for. Yes, and obedient too. But, never once did I ever think that my Mon was mean to me or too hard on me. My Mom did what she had to do to get me though those growing years that were so much trouble for many of my friends. Looking back on all the pain and embarrassment and humiliation, I appreciated my Mom for caring enough to be my Mom and not my friend when I needed a Mom. Mom was my friend the rest of the time. Jill and I get along better than any other siblings we know. Jill and I truly care about one another and understand our perspective roles in our growing up process together. As a result, Jill got me a room in the same house she and a few friend rented as their own personal college dorm. How great is that going to be, me and five girls in the same house, I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!

Death By Bourbon:  Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah when she witnesses a death at an engagement party for Matt, her best friend.

Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon. That would be upsetting enough, but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no one will believe her except for Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer. The three of them conspire to bring the murderer to justice. It turns out the suspect is always three steps ahead of them.

To make matters worse, Josiah's daughter, Asa decides to move to London, Franklin leaves town, and Jake starts singing a different tune. Josiah doubts her ability to meet the future alone. Maybe it's time to sell the Butterfly and move to Florida with the rest of the old folks.

But Josiah is sure of one thing. There is justice and then there is Kentucky justice.

 

Death By Lotto:  Ethel Bradley thinks someone is trying to kill her, but doesn’t know who or why. She enlists the help of her childhood friend, Lady Elsmere, but Lady Elsmere has troubles of her own in the form of a ne’er-do-well English nephew who’s trying to steal her estate. Both women turn to Josiah Reynolds, who has just returned from New York.

Josiah calls Detective Goetz who recommends a shamus named Walter Neff. Walter and Josiah scour the Bluegrass for answers that turn out to be deadly. To make matters worse for Josiah, Fred O’nan (the rogue cop who tried to kill Josiah in Death By A HoneyBee) is a free man and still gunning for her.

Josiah, full of sass and vinegar, meets these challenges head on with the support of her friends, Franklin and Matt. Will Josiah be thwarted this time?

Kentucky can be a cruel mistress to those wanting justice and exacts a high price for it. Sometimes the “dark and bloody ground” demands double indemnity. This is something Josiah knows very well. Very well indeed.

 

Death By Chocolate:  Josiah Reynolds is tracking down the disappearance of an old friend’s son. But while she is chasing a missing person, O’nan is hot on Josiah’s trail chasing her. And he is threatening, conniving, and blackmailing others to help destroy the woman he thinks ruined his life. Will he finally succeed?

Or will Josiah outwit him as she has always done?

One thing is for sure . . . when Josiah and O’nan finally clash at the Cumberland Falls, will justice will be done? As Josiah always says - there is the law and then there is Kentucky justice.

Will Josiah survive the thundering and treacherous waters of the Cumberland Falls or will O'nan finally push our brave Josiah over the edge?
