Missing Piece: Spell Crossed

Dundurn
Free sample

Tharfen might be the only person who can save the Phaer Isle, but she is missing a very important part of herself.

In Book 3 of the Spell Crossed series, Tharfen, now eighteen, is still playing unwilling host to a shattered piece of her old friend turned enemy, Xemion. But no one seems to know where Xemion is, though rumours abound. As the Great Kone approaches its first full turn in fifty years, the unstable magic it unleashes grows more and more dangerous for all the Phaerlanders. Meanwhile, other perils abound: a vast influx of refugees from the Civil War in the north threatens to overwhelm the resources of Ulde while a Cyclopean armada approaches the isle from the west, its commander intent on revenge. Tharfen must find Xemion, but if she does, will the cost of restoring her missing piece be far too high a price to pay?

"Be it known throughout the land that the rightful heir to the throne of Crystonia will be the wearer of the Silver Breastplate with its four Stones of LIght: The Stone of Mercy, The Stone of Courage, The Stone of Integrity and The Stone of Wisdom."
By tradition, the ruler of Crystonia will be the one in possession of the Silver Breastplate. Yet the rightful heir has not appeared and the throne that sits atop Mount Heilodius has stood empty for a century and a half.
The kingdom is being torn apart as the biggest and strongest races battle for control. Even the herd of peace-loving Centaurs has splintered into two factions, one awaiting the promised bearer of the breastplate, the other seeking power and control over the land. 
Unbeknownst to all but a very few, the Silver Breastplate has been created. In due course, it is presented to a sixteen-year-old Duende girl named Carling, one of the tiny descendants of the fairies that once filled the land. But the silver breastplate is not complete. In order for its wearer to have the skills to rule the land righteously, the young Duende needs to find the four stones of light that are needed to finish this magical source of power and authority. 
This is the riveting story of Carling's quest. She, along with her friends, must risk their lives to save their land and fulfill the assignment given to them to complete the silver breastplate.
Award-Winning Author M.J. Evans takes the reader on another fantastic adventure. Immerse yourself in her fantasy world of Centaurs, Cyclops, Ogres and the Duende.

They killed my mother.
They took our magic.
They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers and her growing feelings for an enemy.
