Forged in Spirit Is Now Available!

Book Five of The Conquest of Kelemir series, Forged in Spirit, is now available at all the usual suspects!

FiS ebook cover

The High Lord of the Union is to be executed for treason in three days, and his appointed stand-in—Thane, Dread Lord of Eladria—is relieved to finally see the end of the matter…until a strange pair of trespassers from Lyntara end up in his custody and turn everything upside-down.

Suddenly dark secrets are coming to light, old loyalties are called into question, and new duties demand more of both Thane and his Mirror than either of them ever expected.

Forced to accept the word of a Lyntaran mage or risk the entire Union, they find themselves on the one battlefield they’re not ready for. Will they be able to stop the High Lord’s treachery from destroying them all, or will more than the High Lord’s mind be broken?

It was so much fun for me writing Thane and Kesara again!  Please do let me know what you think, as I have another project involving them in the planning stages if their role in the Conquest of Kelemir is well received.

On that note, I suggest reading the Broken Mirrors Duology first if you have any interest in doing so, to maximize your enjoyment of all the books, but Forged in Spirit should still make sense if you haven’t/don’t want to. 🙂 A special sale on the first book in the Duology, Broken Mirrors, is coming up Monday, Sept. 28th on Amazon for those who’d like a copy! Please tell your friends!

Came across one of my favorite scenes

from Bound in Blood while refreshing my memory on something for Book 6. Here is an excerpt:

“You do realize it’s just a tree, right?” Gwyn tried, struggling to keep her voice light. Inside she was wondering what she was going to do if he decided to start randomly assigning enemy status to plants. She’d counted on having the relative safety of the woods while they traveled.

“It’s not just a tree to me,” he answered tightly. Then he sighed. “I don’t expect you to understand.”

“Then why not explain it to me? What can it hurt?”

“You’ll think I’m crazy.”

“Yeah, a little late on that one, buddy,” Gwyn muttered automatically, then she immediately reddened. Oh great. I hope he didn’t catch that.

“They talk to each other,” Dominic informed her, his words clipped and testy. “I’ve always been able to hear them if I’m close enough. Yes, even before the fever. No, nothing else talks to me that shouldn’t. No, they don’t instruct me to build shrines or go on murderous rampages. They don’t speak to me at all.”

She winced. Yeah, I think he heard me.

*You don’t need to read Breath of Life to understand Bound in Blood. It actually takes place a number of years before that story. But it’s a nice little bit of background that you might enjoy as you will hear about these characters again…albeit from a very different perspective. ; )

More on Bound in Blood

I wasn’t very happy with the previous blurb I wrote for Bound in Blood, so I revised it to hopefully make it a little clearer what the story is actually about. This might be hard to believe, but I find those little blurbs a lot harder to write than the stories themselves. There’s just so much that needs to be condensed into a succinct little description!

I’ll be updating this shortly at my various sales channels, but for now, you can see it here first!

Whether regarded as man or monster, half-elven Dominic has always been alone. Sent by his lord on a journey to find the answers that Kelemir needs to survive the coming storm with Lyntara, Dominic finds not only his life, but his entire mission in jeopardy when a single mistake sends him hurtling off-course.

Now bound against his will to a reclusive necromancer with secrets of her own, he may no longer be alone but he’s also no longer free, and the bond they share can be a deadly one. Can he survive their bond and his journey, or will Kelemir’s last hope for standing against Lyntara die with him?

This story ends on a cliffhanger.

In a nutshell, this book is about Dominic’s attempt to cross Lyntara, gather information and hopefully obtain some answers/help from the High Lord of the Union on the other side of Lyntara’s border. It’s a last-ditch, shot-in-the-dark kind of effort for the Southern Province, one that his lord was understandably reluctant to even attempt due to its dismally low odds of success, and those odds just keep dropping when everything that can go wrong promptly does within an hour of Dominic setting foot on Lyntaran soil.

The book ends when his journey ends, so I’m being clear upfront that you won’t get all the answers or learn the final outcome of his mission in this book, hence the “cliffhanger warning.” Dominic’s journey gets its own book because it has important consequences for the rest of the series. I promise I didn’t do it this way to tease you!

If you’ve been following the series so far, I’d love to hear what you think. Are you looking forward to learning more about Dominic or did you hate his guts in Lord of War? : )
