When a world’s fate rests on her sword, will a loyal soldier obey her king or follow her heart?
Militess Halina is an accomplished leader, a fearsome soldier, and the unapologetically tough bastard daughter of Ursinum’s king. When she’s ordered to gain the allegiance of Shadow Mage Gethen — a notoriously dangerous necromancer whose brother is an enemy king — she assumes the negotiations will be simple: Either he’ll pledge his loyalty or she’ll remove his head.
But the Shadow Mage isn’t what she expected, nor is his situation. Intriguing and powerful, Gethen’s the only man preventing the return of an ancient menace that threatens their world. And though he hates to admit it, his sorcery is failing and he needs her help.
Suddenly Ursinum’s dispute with Gethen’s brother seems petty, and Halina must decide who’s best served by her sword: her king or every man, woman, and child in the four kingdoms and beyond.
Magic, adventure, love, and suspense abound in the first novel of Monica Enderle Pierce’s Militess & Mage series. Epic fantasy that’s perfect for fans of sword and sorcery fiction with a touch of enemies-to-lovers romance.
They followed their hearts and saved the world, but their problems have only just begun.
Militess Halina battled monsters, wraiths, and undead mages to assure peace for Ursinum. Now she’s under siege inside her own castle, held by adversaries determined to start a war and to condemn her lover, Sun Mage Gethen, as a king-killer and a child-slayer.
After banishing his former master’s madness behind the Voidline for eternity Gethen expected his quiet life to return. Instead, someone has resurrected an evil that feeds on the kingdom’s children, and they’ve framed him for its return.
In a battle for souls and survival, Halina fights for the kingdom she serves and the man she loves, even as Gethen hunts an undying evil to spare the children of two nations from a horrendous death and to save his beloved militess from an enemy’s wrath.
Magic, adventure, love, and suspense return in the sequel to The Shadow and the Sun. Epic fantasy that’s perfect for fans of sword and sorcery with a strong heroine, a beta hero, and an established romantic partnership.
Once they were royalty, now they’re renegades.
Halina and Gethen are the last fighters standing against the evil engulfing Quoregna. Newly allied Nalvika and Ursinum march against their eastern neighbors in overwhelming numbers. Citizens are conscripted or killed, their possessions seized. Shrikers roam the lands, stealing children’s souls to empower King Waldram’s necromancy, while mages and hedge witches are seduced by the dark magic feeding his madness. Besera teeters on the brink of collapse and Or-Halee is under siege. Only distant Teleyansk remains free from war’s chaos.
Relentlessly hunted by their enemies, Gethen and Halina must journey to Quoregna’s farthest reaches in search of allies. Can they muster aid from strangers, or will fear of Waldram’s combined armies force the militess and the mage to travel a deadlier road to raise a force against his tyranny?
