The arrival of a dangerous sorcerer forces Gavin to confront his past.
As Gavin works with the El’aras to master his connection to the ring, he learns of an El’aras prophecy that speaks of the Shard and a Champion.
One must destroy the other.
Though Gavin doesn’t believe in prophecy, he can’t deny that he’s caught up in something greater than he understands—and begins to suspect he’s been guided toward his fate.
The arrival of a powerful sorcerer tests Gavin’s belief. If he can’t stop the Sul’toral, he might have no choice but to fulfill the ancient prophecy and destroy someone he’s come to deeply care about.
Having found the true power of her blade, Imogen must use it to protect her people.
After preventing her brother from taking the power of the Porapeth and becoming the very thing her people have defended against, Imogen now chases him, believing he can still be saved.
When a dangerous creature not seen in centuries emerges and begins to hunt those with magic, Imogen fears her brother responsible. Stopping these creatures involves an understanding of the sacred patterns Imogen hasn’t fully mastered, and requires her to protect those the Leier have long warred with.
They need a true master of the sacred patterns, which means the First of the Blade must become something more.
She must find a way to lead.
Taught to fear magic. Trained from a young age to destroy those who wield it. The First of the Blade Series begins.
Trained to destroy sorcery from a young age, Imogen Inaratha left that life behind, having come to see magic differently. When her brother asks for help, she embarks on a dangerous journey—and must face a part of her past she wanted to forget.
An encounter with one of the mythical Porapeth changes the course of the journey. Protecting him forces her to face dark magical creatures and a powerful sorcerer determined to destroy the Porapeth in his quest for even more power.
To succeed, she must learn the truth of the blade she’d long thought she’d mastered.
She must truly become the First of the Blade.
Trained to kill from a young age, Gavin Lorren finally escaped that life. No more killing innocents. No more working alone. The jobs are still dangerous, but at least he can choose.
Now an old friend has invited him to the city of Yoran where the work is plentiful. The Roasted Dragon tavern is rough but cozy. The regulars are seedy but welcoming. The owner Jessica is fond of him. It's almost too good to be true.
His good fortune is fleeting. Gavin finds himself facing a new enemy, fast and deadly El'aras warriors—an ancient race with innate magical talent. By the time he learns sorcery is involved, he's in too deep. To succeed, he’ll have to uncover parts of his past that he'd hoped to forget.
It will take an assassin without equal to survive.
It will take the Chain Breaker.
A dark power that attacks Yoran leads Gavin on a dangerous journey.
Gavin remains in Yoran while struggling to master his El’aras abilities. With the power of the strange ring that grants him even more power, he knows he has to learn control, otherwise he’ll destroy the city while trying to protect it.
When the hyadan, creatures of dark sorcery, come to the city, Gavin has to make a choice between staying to learn control over his power or helping Imogen. For him, that’s no choice at all.
Chasing the hyadan leads them deeper into Imogen’s past, and challenges Gavin more than he thought possible. The price of failure is greater than only one city. If he can’t learn to control his El’aras magic—and the power of the ring—the dark power will spread and destroy all magic in the world.
After capturing the sorcerer called the Apostle, Gavin decided to remain in the city of Yoran where he’s become comfortable. Work that had been plentiful has dried up and comfort becomes complacency.
While new friends help to find jobs, they’re not the kind of jobs an assassin trained to be the Chain Breaker should take. He’s trained to kill, not track down relics in a city that long ago banished magic.
When pushed to save a young boy, Gavin finds himself dealing with much more than he bargained for. A sorcerer known as the Mistress of Vines has come to Yoran. In order to stop her, he must come to understand a part of himself he was trained to ignore.
It will take an assassin without equal to stop the Mistress of Vines.
Only this time, the Chain Breaker might not be enough.
After establishing an uneasy truce with the constables, Gavin has settled in Yoran to offer protection to his friends and the remaining magical element in the city.
When a job reveals a dangerous new threat in the city, Gavin must take action. This time the target isn’t Gavin, but the city itself. Magic was banished a generation ago, but the Fates have returned. They bring a dark magic Gavin has never seen before—and might be helpless to control.
It will take more than an assassin to stop the Fates.
It will take magic the Chain Breaker barely understands and can’t control.
Gavin has secured the city, preventing the deadly Fates from bringing their terrible sorcery back to Yoran, but Tristan remains at large. Their fight had been a test, and Gavin knows he can’t fail the next one.
When a strange attack pushes him to reveal the depths of his magic, Gavin knows Tristan has returned to finish what he started. This time, he’s working with a power greater than any sorcerer—and something Gavin has never faced.
A friend’s abduction forces Gavin to take action he never would have considered in order to save them and stop Tristan. He must use all his connections in the city, but even that might not be enough to save them—or stop a plan that’s been in play for years.
The Chain Breaker will not be enough.
He must find a way to become something more than he’d ever trained to be.
Ty stopped the danger to the kingdom but a new danger emerges.
While trying to understand his Tecal connection to the smoke dragon, Ty knows Lothinal have not abandoned their plans. Roson James has been stopped but not defeated, and now the Dragon Touched are compromised.
The key to protecting the kingdom is mastering his dragon connections, but the smoke dragon remains elusive and Ishantil is simply too powerful.
Finding understanding means chasing the Flame—and the possibility that he might be more than a Tecal. Ty must succeed or Lothinal will destroy not only the kingdom, but the power of the Flame itself.
Packed full of action and adventure, The Obsidian Dragon continues an exciting new epic fantasy adventure.
It will take a thief to stop a thief.
Zarinth is a dangerous city at the edge of the kingdom, illuminated by the constant fire of the nearby volcano Ishantil. For thief Ty, it’s more than a city filled with valuable ancient dragon relics. It’s the home he could never leave.
When Ishantil threatens to erupt, and the city descends into chaos, Ty wants one last score before finally leaving the city—and his past behind. All while the notorious Dragon Thief chases the same prize.
The Dragon Thief has a reputation for a reason, but Ty begins to think there’s more to the job than he ever expected.
Success means more than freedom. It means he can buy the answers he really wants. And it just might save the city from destruction.
Packed full of action and adventure, Path of the Flame is the beginning of a brand new epic fantasy adventure.
The bonded smoke dragon may be key to saving the kingdom.
Ty has bonded to a strange smoke dragon and trains as a Tecal. If he can’t control the connection, the dragon will be stripped from him so that another can use the power of the dragon in service of the kingdom, as the threat from Lothinal is not gone.
When Roson James makes his move, Ty feels an increased urgency to understand how to connect to the dragon. Help comes from an unlikely source, but it might not be in time.
This time, the kingdom is not the only target. And those able to intervene may have the power Roson James needs to bring about their downfall.
Packed full of action and adventure, Smoke and Shadow continues an exciting new epic fantasy adventure.
Life on the farm at the edge of the kingdom is anything but routine for Ashan. The plains around Berestal suffer from severe storms, making travel to the city difficult, with the threat of an attack from the people of Vard always looming. He long ago abandoned dreams of serving as a dragon rider, caring for his injured father and brother, but everything is about to change.
A Vard attack forces Ashan to risk everything to protect his sister. Doing so brings him closer to the dragons than he had ever imagined, but brings him into a war he never intended to join. Somehow, Ashan and his best friend might be the only ones able to prevent the Vard from reaching a prize they’d long sought, if only they can survive the dangers of the forest, the mysterious Djarn people, a terrifying creature chasing them, and the power of a dragon mage.
Packed full of action and adventure, The Caged Dragon is the beginning of a brand new epic fantasy adventure.
