Book 2

Free Sample

A land ravaged by ice. A deadly enemy awoken. A young man who faces a terrible choice.

Bramwell Thornley, an engineer from the city of Ral Tora, believed that science could solve everything. That is, until the deadly Everwinter plunged the world into chaos. He thought the solution might lie in the city of Chellin but all he found there were lies and treachery.

Now he and his companions must travel to the northern city of Variss. Maybe there they will find a way to halt the Everwinter. Maybe there Bram will discover the truth of who he really is.

Bram must make a decision. Will he embrace his destiny? Will he become the very thing he fears?

His choice will decide everything. The fate of his friends. His homeland.

And the world itself.

Two unlikely heroes. One chance to save humanity. They’ll take those odds.

 

In a land ravaged by civil war mages battle for supremacy whilst warlords rule the remnants of a broken population. And, sensing weakness, dark forces gather beyond the Veil, ready to punch a hole into this reality…

 

Into this arena step two reluctant saviors.

 

Maegwin, a tormented priestess, is the last of her kind. The sole survivor of a murderous attack on her temple, she knows her goddess would preach forgiveness for her enemies. But Maegwin dreams only of revenge.

 

Rovann, a loyal mage, bows under the weight of expectation. As King’s Mage, the people look to him for leadership. But after the death of his wife, he dreams only of following her into oblivion.

 

Somehow these two damaged souls must learn to trust each other, for only united will they have the power to face the ancient evil that is stirring. But that’s easier said than done.

 

Because the Songmaker is waiting and if they falter, he will crush them utterly. 

 

The Last Priestess is the first book of a fantasy series in the spirit of epics such as A Song of Ice and Fire and The Wheel of Time. Step into a world of warring mages, fantastical creatures, and heroes who have the courage to stand against the darkness.

 

If you love Game of Thrones, The Wheel of Time or The Sword of Truth, you’ll love this epic tale of darkness and redemption.

#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.

The Last Priestess Book 1


There is a name that is uttered only in whispers: The Songmaker.

A ruthless rebel mage, he is bringing civil war to the once-peaceful kingdom of Amaury, enveloping all in a tide of violence.

For Maegwin, a tormented priestess, the path forward lies in forgiving her temple's enemies—but she dreams only of revenge. For Rovann, a loyal mage haunted by his failures, salvation might be found in the unthinkable: defying the very king he swore to protect.

If they are to succeed they must form an unlikely alliance. For someone must stand against the Songmaker. Someone must save Amaury from his dark designs. But first, they’ll have to learn to trust each other.

And so a magical fantasy of darkness and redemption begins.

 

The King’s Mage Book 2

The Unraveling has begun. The barriers that separate the Seven Realms are breaking, threatening to send Chaos ripping through the universe, to the ruin of all. 

In the kingdom of Amaury, the Council of Mages desperately tries to halt an army bent on sacking the capital. But how do you halt an army led by the dead? 

In the west, Rovann, First of the Council of Mages, and Maegwin, priestess of Sho-La, set out on a desperate mission to save the Seven Realms. But beset by enemies on all sides, they’re not sure who to trust—least of all each other. 

And in the center of this web waits the Songmaker, a shadowy figure whose final plans may hold the key to the salvation or destruction of creation itself. 

And so this epic tale of darkness and redemption continues. 

 

 

The Traitor’s Song Book 3

The endgame is approaching. The Seven Realms are Unraveling. And in the kingdom of Amaury, the Songmaker is so near his goal...

Only Rovann, First of the Council of Mages, stands in his way.

But he is alone. Maegwin, his ally and lover, has betrayed him. Now she stands by the Songmaker’s side.

The forces arrayed against him are vast. The Songmaker’s army holds the capital in a pincer grip and a tide of revenants and rebel mages are flocking to his banner. All are converging on Tyrlindon.

For this is the place where the Songmaker’s ultimate plan will be revealed. This is the place where Maegwin hopes to find her redemption.

And this is the place Rovann must destroy if he is to stop them.

And so this epic tale of darkness and redemption concludes.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.
