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.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The thrilling history of the Targaryens comes to life in this masterly work by the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, the inspiration for HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Centuries before the events of A Game of Thrones, House Targaryen—the only family of dragonlords to survive the Doom of Valyria—took up residence on Dragonstone. Fire & Blood begins their tale with the legendary Aegon the Conqueror, creator of the Iron Throne, and goes on to recount the generations of Targaryens who fought to hold that iconic seat, all the way up to the civil war that nearly tore their dynasty apart.

What really happened during the Dance of the Dragons? Why was it so deadly to visit Valyria after the Doom? What were Maegor the Cruel’s worst crimes? What was it like in Westeros when dragons ruled the skies? These are but a few of the questions answered in this essential chronicle, as related by a learned maester of the Citadel and featuring more than eighty all-new black-and-white illustrations by artist Doug Wheatley. Readers have glimpsed small parts of this narrative in such volumes as The World of Ice & Fire, but now, for the first time, the full tapestry of Targaryen history is revealed.

With all the scope and grandeur of Gibbon’s The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Fire & Blood is the the first volume of the definitive two-part history of the Targaryens, giving readers a whole new appreciation for the dynamic, often bloody, and always fascinating history of Westeros.

Praise for Fire & Blood

“I love it so much. Fire & Blood is Martin Unbound . . . and I couldn’t put it down. . . . There’s an addictive quality to the prose that’s outright gossipy. . . . The obvious comparison here is J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Silmarillion. . . . Writing centuries after the events he’s describing, the Gyldayn voice complicates this game of thrones with a clash of perspectives and a storm of debatable facts. . . . Heavy stuff, but Fire & Blood flies.”—Entertainment Weekly

“A masterpiece of popular historical fiction.” —The Sunday Times

“The saga is a rich and dark one, full of both the title’s promised elements. . . . It’s hard not to thrill to the descriptions of dragons engaging in airborne combat, or the dilemma of whether defeated rulers should ‘bend the knee,’ ‘take the black’ and join the Night’s Watch, or simply meet an inventive and horrible end.”—The Guardian

Death By A HoneyBee 1

Josiah Reynolds, a former art history professor, was once a
celebrity with wealth, social position, and a famous husband. Now all of
that is gone. The professor finds her circumstances drastically
altered. Retired, Josiah is now a beekeeper trying to stay financially
afloat by selling honey at the local Farmers’ Market. She finds her
world turned upside down when a man is found dead in her bee yard, only
to discover that the victim is her competitor and nemesis. The police
suspect the brutal death is murder and Josiah is their number one
suspect.



Death By Drowning 2

In the second novel of the series, Josiah survives a forty-foot
fall off a cliff only to discover that her nightmare is not over.
O'nan's body is never found and he may be alive. Josiah puts the past
behind her but it reaches out, threatening to pull her off the cliff
again. Matt, her best friend, and Jake, her physical therapist, stand
between Josiah and harm. Even they can't keep danger at bay. Once again,
Josiah makes the rounds of quirky characters found in the lush
Bluegrass horse world of Thoroughbreds, oak-cured bourbon and antebellum
mansions.



Death By Bridle 3

Josiah is back on the trail of a murderer. Arthur Aaron Greene III
is one of Kentucky's most prominent horsemen, but he is found hanging
from the rafters in a horse barn with stones in his pockets and a bucket
of water under his feet. The only witness is a nine year old boy who
can't seem to remember exactly what happened. Relentless in her pursuit
of the killer, Josiah stumbles into decades of lies and deception that
include her dear friend, Lady Elsmere. Josiah discovers that she must go
back to 1962 if she is to find out the truth at all!
