Young Prince Lee can’t talk to girls at all until he meets Jona Haever. His aunt, Queen magicboxesGaia, invites Jona to the castle for the summer to help Lee learn social graces. Although Her Majesty makes it clear Jona is no better than a servant, Jona and Lee become best friends. When the summer comes to a close, the two continue to correspond through a pair of magical boxes conjured by the Wizard Farland. Nine years later, Jona and Lee are closer than ever, but any romantic feelings between them are forbidden by law.

New Covers • The Yden Trilogy

TYCFINAL

Time for a new look for a dragontastic series! The Yden Collection contains all three books in the trilogy, plus two Yden short stories, Ran and The Temporary Wizard of Locklynn.

The Last Great Wizard of Yden has been reconfigured to contain the prequel as well as the original novel, in Parts I and II.

All he wanted for his birthday were the keys to the car, but instead he got a lousy magic ring.

For Jon Hansen, his to-do list is growing ever longer. First and foremost, he has to rescue his father from the evil wizard who has kidnapped him to another dimension. Secondly, he must master the magical powers that allow him to draw things to life. Third, he must bring dragons back to Yden. Fourth, he has to pass his California driver’s license test. Unfortunately, the magical world of Yden is in turmoil, with a bloodthirsty warlord determined to rule the former Nomad Territory, and danger lurking around every corner. Can Jon accomplish his objectives, all while starting a new school?

(Part I )After Kira is poisoned by an enemy, the fiercely independent young warrior will eventually succumb to enslavement unless she finds a cure. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose life energy has been drained by Efysian, a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, she flees across the country in a bid to reach a legendary cure.

(Part II) Seeking to feed his addiction to life energy, Efysian of the Wolf Clan travels across dimensions to kidnap Jon’s father–a Dragon Clan wizard who fled to Earth. Although Jon vows to mount a rescue, he’s woefully unprepared to do battle. Can a high school kid from California survive long enough to outwit the most evil wizard the magical world has ever known, or will Efysian add the young Dragon Clan wizard to his gruesome collection of trophies?

Dragon Clan of Yden

As Jon’s formal magical training begins, his budding romantic attraction to Kira jeopardizes his relationship with Brett. At the same time, the Dragon Clan is bringing the Earth-born children of Yden’s wizards back home. Unfortunately, the Fox Clan has also been recruiting these teen wizards for its own sinister plans. The mysterious Guinn of the Fox Clan is searching for a weapon known as the Portal Key and is more than willing to kill for it. Jon becomes increasingly desperate and reckless in his quest to thwart the Fox Clan, but he discovers—too late—his enemy is closer than he thinks.

Secrets of Yden

As Jon begins his final year in high school, he and his friends are focused on the future. Unfortunately, a past skirmish on Yden is still having repercussions. Bailey of the Shark Clan is out for revenge, and he has secret support on the Executive Council. Worse, time is stopping on Earth for increasingly long intervals, and only Jon is unaffected. Unfortunately, the search for answers uncovers an ancient prophecy that spells his doom.

Black Friday Deal • #Free Sword & Sorcery

KIRASGRIn the spirit of Black Friday, I’m offering my book Kira as a free Kindle download HERE.

Blurb: Poisoned by an enemy, a young warrior struggles to find an antidote before she succumbs to enslavement. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose youth and magic has been stolen by a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, she flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mirrum Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?

Excerpt

Kira directed Myst onto the main thoroughfare connecting the east and west borders of Nomad Territory. Although the road was deserted at present, local farmers and merchants would soon arrive as they delivered goods to Wyckcrest Village marketplace. The early morning air seemed to energize Myst, but Kira kept her to a fast walk. With such a long way to go, she didn’t want the horse to tire too quickly. A week’s ride lay ahead of her as she journeyed toward the eastern mountain range. Then, after she reached the river, her route would turn south for another three or four days.
Her growling stomach reminded Kira she’d not yet eaten. Just as she reached toward her saddlebag, two unsavory men leaped into the road with swords drawn. She reined Myst in. “Step aside.”

“Hand over your money bag, lass, and we won’t hurt ye.”

Kira sighed inwardly, even as her hand moved inside her jacket. “I’ve no wish to kill you before breakfast. Toss your swords to the ground and back away.”
The men exchanged a glance and laughed. After a moment, Kira joined in—which bewildered the robbers at first, but then made them angry. No sooner had they stepped toward her when she hurled a pair of throwing knives. The men crumpled to the dirt, clutching their throats. Too late, she saw a third highwayman armed with a bow and arrow, perched in a tree.
