The one thing worse than being made a wizard is to be born one.
Phaz’s father wards the great desert of Hethria. His mother was a crown princess. Mighty Assharral wants him as imperial heir. What choices does he have left?
He could always run. But Phaz has an Art of his own, that offers glimpses of the future. Run or stay, it’s not where you’d want to end up.
The Red Country
Introducing the princess, and the mage.
He doesn’t do well with people.
She's not so good at tact.
But he’s the wizard guardian of half a continent,
She rules a kingdom she must protect.
And to survive the inroads of a marauding empire,
The wild, harsh, fickle, fragile, beautiful desert of Hethria needs them both.
Some wars you just can't win alone.
The Moving Water
The fountain plays. The empress dreams.
The mighty realm of Assharral shelters eight provinces under her timeless rule.
Asharral is peaceful, wealthy and secure. But nobody sings.
And only one vagabond wizard wonders why.
The sequel to Everran's Bane, the first Chronicle of Rihannar.
The kingdom of Everran is dying, razed by a dragon that came out of nowhere to burn its oil groves and devastate its vineyards and kill its folk. Legend says, a dragon’s coming always has a cause.
Why has the dragon come?
What does the dragon know?
One man knows the riddle’s answer. No man knows that answer’s cost.
