Agonizomai Series Book I: Frosted Fire
A princess in hiding.
A man who knows her name.
Can they escape the hunters who destroyed two kingdoms to keep them apart?
Four years have passed since Iyanka’s world fell apart in a nightmare of shadow and death. For four years, she’s lived unknown among the men who condemned her people as monsters. In a baron’s fortress, her once-prized hold over ice and frost is a deadly liability.
Until a man from her past arrives, bringing with him an arcane power that has Iyanka questioning everything she knows of wielders. He offers her escape. He offers her a chance of regaining her world.
But the barons won’t let Iyanka go so easily. Even with a way to defend themselves, Iyanka and her new companions aren’t safe. Hunters chase them across Elnar, and even the promised haven isn’t as safe as it once was. The wielders aren’t the only ones with arcane powers on their side, and the barons still seek the wielders’ annihilation.
Iyanka is out of places to run. She has only one choice: stand with her people, fight for her right to live. But will the power she shares with Victorin be enough? Or will the promise of frosted fire fall to the barons with everything else?
Agonizomai Series Book II: Born in Darkness
A disgraced prince.
A realm on the verge of ruin.
Can he escape a second exile?
In the overgrown gardens of Agera, Henry promised Princess Iyanka that he’d tell her his story. For anyone else, the promise would lay dormant. Even in its entirety, Henry’s story isn’t one to trifle with…
Eero Henry, second son of the great King Duna of Ecleath. The most powerful young sorcerer of his age and the scourge of the Theophiloi. Henry was raised to depend on magic, to do what was required of him, and to never question his father’s orders.
Except there are some bonds stronger than loyalty to his king. When tragedy turns Henry against his father, he’s exiled to face the world that turned its back on Ecleath. As an outcast, being Eero is only a target on his back. And it’s not only foreigners who hunt him…sorcerers follow his footsteps, threatening his efforts to make a new life. They nearly accomplish their goal…until Henry is swept up in an exile of another kind, this time for a people not his own.
Imprisoned and forced to face his past, Henry questions if what he’s been taught about magic, and the Theophiloi, is true. Maybe magic isn’t the true strength he’s been told.
But if that’s the case, what hope does he have? Can someone born in darkness ever truly escape?
Agonizomai Series Book III: Broken Healer
A slave girl with a secret.
A dragon in the wastelands.
A darkness that threatens to devour them all.
All Sioned has ever wanted was to save lives. But that option was stolen from her, and lately all her powers have done is cause more pain. She faces a choice: give in and become the weapon the night people forced her to be, or hope the rumored dragon of the wastes is more merciful than the legends claim.
Escape won’t be so simple, though. The night people’s reach extends far beyond the steppes, even into the wilderness. Sioned can’t hide from them forever. Whatever hope she has depends on a group of misfits standing against the night people. If she stands with them, perhaps she can fight the evil she’s been enslaved to. If she preserves their lives in battle, perhaps they can show her a way out of the shadows.
But maybe the voices in the shadows are right. Maybe she has fallen too far for redemption. After all, in a world filled with legends and dragons…what use is a broken healer?
Agonizomai Series Book IV: Menacing Whispers
A blind girl with a penchant for trouble.
A disillusioned warrior intent on stopping her.
A conspiracy that could bring a kingdom to its knees.
Traveling as her friend’s translator, Caidi expects her biggest adventure to be a brief brush with royalty. Instead, she’s held for ransom by a powerful group that runs the city from the shadows. Their leader, Coggan, isn’t the merciful type, and he’s clear that any disobedience on Caidi’s part will have…consequences.
But Caidi isn’t about to give in without a fight. She’s more capable than this “family” could guess, and more determined than they’re ready for. She’ll uncover their secrets and free herself from Coggan’s clutches…if she can convince the family’s leading warrior to stop haunting her footsteps.
The longer Caidi spends in their halls, though, the more she’s convinced that her freedom is the least of her worries. Sorcerers infiltrate the palace, someone is stirring the citizens of the city to madness…and it all leads back to Coggan.
Can Caidi trust her new allies to help her stop the chaos? Or will she fall to these menacing whispers with everyone else?
