The Aykotah Daughter

When the authorities concur for the king’s daughter to meet her future husband and ruler, Miroreka Fakusha rebels. Believing she can lead the Aykotah tribe better than an outsider, Fakusha entertains the plot of sabotaging her engagement. She’d much rather explore the jungle or fight alongside her brothers than serve a foreign prince—she may even go so far as to use her powerful fists and her strong will to change her fate.

Her betrothed, Borrego Ni’guah guah is unaffected by her strength and stubbornness. This royal doesn’t need to use his charm to get what he wants—even if it’s Lady Fakusha.

But for Fakusha, the struggle increases between what she wants and what is wanted of her, especially when her closest friend, Ridwiqu’Mar, cannot hide his desire for her any longer. Ridwiqu’Mar, the king’s personal guard, secretly meets her with a scheme of his own ... but that isn’t the only secret the jungle holds.

As tension grows between them, will Ni’guah guah be able to defend his position, when others seek the Aykotah throne? And with the island tribes waging war with each other, will Fakusha conform to her role before it's too late?

The Fate of the Kingdom Awaits the Cast of Stones

In the backwater village of Callowford, roustabout Errol Stone is enlisted by a church messenger arriving with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Eager for coin, Errol agrees to what he thinks will be an easy task, but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he's joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.

Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom's dynasty nears its end and the selection of the new king begins--but in secret and shadow. As danger mounts, Errol must leave behind the stains and griefs of the past, learn to fight, and discover who is hunting him and his companions and how far they will go to stop the reading of the stones.


"With an engaging, imaginative world that bristles with danger, characters that keep you guessing, and a story that sticks with you, A Cast of Stones will keep you devouring pages until the very end. I highly recommend it!" --John W. Otte, author of Failstate

"Carr's debut, the first in a series, is assured and up-tempo, with much to enjoy in characterization and description--not least the homely, life-as-lived details." -Publishers Weekly

This fast-paced fantasy debut set in a medieval world is a winner. Both main and secondary characters are fully drawn and endearing, and Errol's transformation from drunkard to hero is well plotted. Carr is a promising CF author to watch. Fans of epic Christian fantasies will enjoy discovering a new voice.

"Like the preceding series title, Inescapable, this tale of suspense offers a colorful cast of characters, small-town drama, and a hint of romance. A sure bet for fans of Hannah Alexander." --Library Journal

"[Good fantasy books] have to be excellent. Good storytelling and exceptional characters with circumstances that are easy enough to follow and wrap your brain around but keep you entertained and guessing... Cast of Stones has found itself firmly in that list of books. I absolutely, one hundred percent loved this book." --Radiant Lit
