"The action blended nicely with the dramatic tension to make this an unputdownable read. Fantasy readers will love this story." — N. N. Light's Book Heaven.
Dretlon Valley has been conquered, but now the city of Maldra has caught wind of a new threat stirring in Southern Elabrium. Rumors tell of not just adepts being possessed by the dreaded wraiths, but essentia, the common people, are turning against one another. Behaviour that was once only characteristic of necrom is revealing itself in them too.
Has the world gone wrong? Have the laws of elemental magic broken, or is there something more? Jake and Louie have to not only find out, but face more danger than ever to get to the bottom of it. All the while they struggle to learn who among their friends have turned... and if they can bring them back.
About the author
Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta Melanie has been in love with medieval fantasy all of her life. Dreams of magic, dragons, maidens, and knights have enthralled her since a young age.
Medieval literature university classes were among her favourites, as was art history from the medieval to the classical periods. Together, along with her excitement of reading anything written about the medieval period, Melanie has gained a realistic view of the medieval age, and how to tweak it into something new.
Action, peril, strategy, and determination fill her books. Determination for life, for friends, and for doing what no one else dares to do.
On the side, Melanie has strong interests in design, photography, and horse jumping. If you read carefully, you might notice tidbits only an artist or horse owner would know.
