Book two of Mickey Zucker Reichert’s acclaimed, bestselling epic fantasy Renhsai Chronicles—Discover the intricate epic fantasy Renshai universe, infused with Norse mythology, tangled intrigue, and cataclysmic magical battles.
 
The balance between Law and Chaos has long been maintained by the rulers of Bearn, but the death of the current king has enabled the elves to magically substitute one of their own on the throne. Under the leadership of Dh’arlo’me, the dark elves are preparing to claim their long-sought vengeance on humankind.
 
But when the small party which set out to find the last heir to the throne returns, Dh’arlo’me realizes that even magic and murder combined will not be enough to overturn the balance. His solution hinges on the kingdom’s greatest burdern and treasure, the Staffs of Law and Chaos.
 
Within those plain pieces of wood dwell the essences of Law and Chaos, each eternally seeking its Champion to destroy the other. Lured into one Staff’s power, Dh’arlo’me seeks to seduce the mortals into championing the other. It falls to Colbey—the greatest of Renshai warriors—to select that Champion. If he chooses wrongly, all life will come to an end.
 
But even success will come at a high price. For the only way to insure that this danger can never arise again is for both Champions and Staffs to be totally annihilated....

Safety is not meant for Sadie: After the Forgotten Waters wash her away, she finds her way to shore, travels through a burnt forest, and finds refuge in a small cabin. That is, she finds refuge until the angry Queen of Ashthoreth, determined to destroy Sadie, drags her down through the Valley of Mud. With unexpected help from a trusted friend, Sadie manages to escape, but soon finds herself in front of yet another enemy: Serpythia.

In one final act of resistance, Stadie stabs the serpent. Before it perishes, though, it swallows her. She travels through Serpythia’s belly and finds an entire world inside, containing all those who were swallowed over the years and were never able to leave.

Is this Sadie’s final journey? Is this where her road comes to an end? Or is there something more to discover, something hidden within the living walls that now contain her?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie. 

This ebook contains the twenty-second and twenty-third novellas in Nicole Arlyn’s epic dark fantasy series, The Sugarspear Chronicles.



Praise for The Sugarspear Chronicles:

"This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” —A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series
As her journey continues, Sadie boards a ship guided by a pirate called Half Moon. He leads her through treacherous waters and tells her stories of how the map to Revelathia came to be.
 
With his help, Sadie finds the key to a treasure chest that contains treasures beyond jewels, but soon after she is swept away by fierce tides to a fairy-tale island with a mysterious angel. Once Sadie returns to the ship, she is reunited with the orphans who escaped the clutches of Princess Faegeria, but when they hit rough storms, she falls off, plunging for miles until she lands in…Muddlewoods. 
 
…Or at least she thinks it’s Muddlewoods. Some things seem a bit different, but some things haven’t changed at all. Soon enough, Sadie wants an escape from Muddlewoods, but also from her childhood and from her life. Relying on her willow tree once more for help, can Sadie outlast death and disappointment long enough to get to the Promised Land?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie.
