The ages-past prequel to AN ACCIDENTAL GODDESS

Sorcery, Treachery, and Love…

A war of dark magic has waged for centuries as the powerful sorcerer, Rothal-Kiarr, has defended the Land from evil wizardry through his control of the Orb of Knowledge. But the balance of power could shift if, as foretold by the rune stones, a young village healer lives long enough to reach her eighteenth birthday.

Born in the midst of a maelstrom, her fate sealed with a sorcerer's spell, Khamsin of Cirrus Cove flees for her life when, on her eighteenth birthday, her village is attacked by deadly Hill Raiders. Then her rune stones reveal a quest: Khamsin must take control of the Orb of Knowledge or there will never be peace is the Land. With the help of Ciro, an elderly wizard, and an enigmatic man named Rylan, Khamsin must face danger, demons, and heartache. But her greatest challenge comes as a question: Can Khamsin accept the truth of who she is? It is Wintertide… and the Land awaits her answer.

Book 1
NOW AN EXCITING NEW SERIES FROM NETFLIX • The shell that blew a hole in his chest was only the beginning in this “tour de force of genre-bending, a brilliantly realized exercise in science fiction.”—The New York Times Book Review

In the twenty-fifth century, humankind has spread throughout the galaxy, monitored by the watchful eye of the U.N. While divisions in race, religion, and class still exist, advances in technology have redefined life itself. Now, assuming one can afford the expensive procedure, a person’s consciousness can be stored in a cortical stack at the base of the brain and easily downloaded into a new body (or “sleeve”) making death nothing more than a minor blip on a screen.

Ex-U.N. envoy Takeshi Kovacs has been killed before, but his last death was particularly painful. Dispatched one hundred eighty light-years from home, re-sleeved into a body in Bay City (formerly San Francisco, now with a rusted, dilapidated Golden Gate Bridge), Kovacs is thrown into the dark heart of a shady, far-reaching conspiracy that is vicious even by the standards of a society that treats “existence” as something that can be bought and sold.
