Gorgones – evil demons, brought from Beyond by the Second King, and which corrupt those who worship them; destroying their minds, bodies and souls. And now rumours of evil, and gorgones, once more abound, heralding what might be another approaching war.
As a Hunter, one of those whose exploits are legend within Albatar, Kazari must play her part as her homeland’s defender. But how can she, a short girl from a remote village, live up to those legends?
Will the Lady’s gifts to Kazari be enough to help the Hunters to defend Albatar in the oncoming war? And will she master them in time to make a difference? Or will she even survive?
About the author
Originally from Western Australia, Leonie now lives in NSW in the Upper Hunter. She is the author of Frontier Incursion, Frontier Resistance, and Frontier Defiant (YA Speculative Fiction) published by Hague Publishing, and also works part time as a physiotherapist. She dabbles in poetry, and has had a short story published in Antipodean SF, and another in the Novascapes 2 anthology.
The Frontier Trilogy is full of glow-in-the-dark cats who like to sleep on the bed, alien invaders, and a planet out to kill the unwary.
Now, in Amethyst Pledge, she has dipped her toes into the waters of fantasy.
She has a past life as a volunteer firefighter and SES member, and once trekked almost six hundred kilometres with eight camels and several other human beings. She is married with two adult children, two dogs and three cats, one of whom frequently handicaps her ability to use a laptop computer.
