A Sword & Sorcery Heroine Dawns for a New Age!
In a world grown weary of brandishing the scars inflicted upon it by the greatest tyrant to walk the pages of history...
Ardanna is a traveling swordswoman in search of a past that will define her future. When she is hired as a bodyguard by the renowned explorer, Nestor of Nikias, she embarks on a journey to discover the lost citadel of Solizhade - the legendary Fortress Above the Sun.
But Nestor is being relentlessly hunted by a pair of sorcerous twins who also seek the stronghold, coveting the power and secrets within its demesnes.
Allied with the explorer and the knifemaster, Tavin Sael, Ardanna must reach the fortress before the sun can be twisted to darkness by the twins who will stop at nothing to discover the place thought by most to merely exist in bedtime lore recounted to children.

The Legends of Ardanna is a series of Sword & Sorcery fantasy books chronicling the adventures of the female protagonist and heroine Ardanna. The immortal overlord Amun Sor rose to power nearly two-hundred years ago, building an army that all but erased the Olde World and subjugated most of the continent over the course of a crusade that lasted a hundred years. A generation ago, Amun Sor led an Enlightened Voyage across the sea to conquer other lands, but has not been heard from since his departure. In the two decades following his disappearance, the Sorean Empire has begun to crumble. Some of the realms have declared independence, longing to return to the freedoms of the Olde World, while dark creatures driven from the empire now dare to return in the immortal overlord's absence. Those that remain loyal to the Sorean Empire struggle to maintain order in a time when chaos is at the gates. And it is in this world that Ardanna is searching for a past that will define her future...
