The Whitewood Kitarra
In hopes of attracting a patron, the young singer-poet, Sir Loriano of Vayne, must confront his dishonorable past and accept his true nature before he can compose his love song and compete against master troubadours in Countess Elisse of Karaska's Summerfest tournament of verse. (Includes a historical note.)
The Dark Lady's Stone
When the High Priest of Fire and Light orders destruction of the Dark Lady Death’s Standing Stone, the troubadour, Loriano of Vayne, does not realize that his epic poem of the battle between Light and Dark will place him between rival gods. Only a shaman storyteller knows the lost road to the Stone and Loriano is the only one he trusts. Loriano must risk death by fire to avoid a catastrophe.
