Book 3 of The Princess Maura Tales—a five book saga. If you love sword/sorcery and action/adventure stories, Wall Of Glory should be your next read.
Empress Maura is a fugitive on the run. She has escaped the confines of the palace at a great cost in lives, but her escape is paramount. Everywhere, Bhuttanian soldiers search for her, but she must elude capture and forced return to her dashing, but deceitful husband Dorak, Aga of the Bhuttanians.
Maura truly loves Dorak. He was everything a woman could want––handsome, cultured, witty, and courageous. He lacks only kindness. Maura couldn’t dampen the raging ambition inside him. She knows that eventually Dorak would be as corrupt as his father, the Aga Zoar.
When Dorak accuses her of sexual improprieties, Maura realizes that she has to flee by any means necessary to reunite with the Dinii, a warrior bird-like people, and search for the fabled plant, the Mother Bogazkoy, in order to “mate” with it. Only the Bogazkoy could infuse her with the power to combat the Black Cacodemon, Dorak’s evil wizard, and free her nation from the tyranny of Bhuttanian rule.
Only by saving her country can Maura hope to save Dorak from himself. Can Maura really rescue both Dorak and her country? Or must one be sacrificed?

Book 1 of The Princess Maura Tales—a five-book series.
A treat for readers who love epic fantasy, sword and sorcery tales mixed with action and a spoonful of supernatural.
Princess Maura is the beloved and spoiled daughter of Queen Abisola and her Consort Iasos, but an ill wind is blowing their way. From the distant east, nomadic tribesmen, known as the Bhuttanians, have unified under the leadership of Zoar, a powerful king who is bent on building a vast empire. Queen Abisola has little time to transform her peaceful, agrarian country into a fighting military unit able to take on Zoar’s experienced warriors.
Queen Abisola must surrender her daughter to the Dinii, a bird-like people who will adopt and train Princess Maura as a warrior to lead her people against Zoar. For years, both the Dinii and Maura’s people prepare to withstand Zoar’s inevitable onslaught, but they never anticipated combating the black magic of Zoar’s evil wizard Zedek.
And no one foresaw that Princess Maura would fall in love with Dorak, Zoar’s son!
Will Princess Maura lose the love of her life as she struggles to save her people? Will her country be able to survive where others have crumbled before the tyranny of Zoar? Or will the Dinii betray her to the warlord Zoar in order to save themselves?
