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?

On the brink of adulthood, she’s offered the chance to track down the wizard responsible for her misery. Unfortunately, she’ll be forced to reveal her powers to the world.

His investigation uncovers magical artifacts that will unlock another dimension—if only he can gather his courage to make the journey. On his quest to Yden, Jon encounters wizards, Cyclopes, and a warlord who seem to want him dead. Fortunately, he’s got friends by his side, as well as the ability to draw things to life. Can he and his friends defeat the most evil wizard the magical world has ever known, or will Jon become the latest addition to the Wolf Clan wizard’s gruesome collection of trophies?

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.

Last Few Weeks for Secrets of Yden

Yden_Book3The publishing rights to my third Yden book, Secrets of Yden, will shortly be reverting back to me. By contract, I must keep the book off the market for 90 days. So if you’ve been thinking about reading it, act now or temporarily (until January 2017) hold your peace! I don’t believe the book will be available anywhere past October 12, 2016, but exact dates are up to the publisher. ~ Suzanne

Blurb: As Jon Hansen begins his senior 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 may have secret support in the Executive Council. Worse, time is stopping on Earth for increasingly long intervals, and only Jon’s ankh sets him apart. An unstable portal is the cause, but his search for answers uncovers an ancient prophecy that seemingly spells his doom. Can Jon repair the hole in the universe before time stops forever, or will he have to sacrifice himself to save the world?

New Name, New Upcoming Release

All my releases from now on will bear my full name, Suzanne G. Rogers, and I hope to have my entire backlist updated on 1/1/16. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the process goes smoothly, but I have Amazon’s number on hand in case it doesn’t! That being said, I’m releasing a new romantic fantasy novella, Whimsical Tendencies, in December.

Blurb: Although she has no memories before the quake that destroyed the kingdom of Augury, Cypher McCall holds a steadfast hatred of the repressive Cauldian regime now ruling the country. Because her magical gifts are deemed subversive, she does her best to avoid detection. Unfortunately for Cypher, however, she’s too beautiful to ignore. After a Cauldian contingent arrives in her hometown, a chance encounter leaves her repulsed by the arrogant Prince Ewan and attracted to his distant cousin, Lord Joss.

When she learns the prince plans to tear down the ruins of nearby Castle Augur, Cypher vows to stop him. Although handsome Lord Joss tries to protect her from his vindictive cousin, Cypher can’t bring herself to trust the enemy. At the same time, nightmares and dreams nudge her toward reclaiming childhood memories. She stumbles on a silver key that she hopes will unlock her past, but first she must confront a long repressed horror at the Castle Augur ruins.

Will the knowledge of Cypher’s true identity tear her apart or will it empower her to restore everything she’s ever loved?

Whimsical Tendencies began as a short story, published by MuseitUp Publishing as Cypher. I rewrote the manuscript, nearly doubling the size in the process. The tale includes wizards, magical plants, ghosts, the living, the dead, and things in between. It’s available for pre-order now, for a December 11th release (just in time for Christmas).

New Cover • KIRA

KIRASGRKIRA has a beautiful new cover!

Blurb:

Poisoned by an enemy, Kira 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, Kira flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mystic Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, an army of Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?

Excerpt:

When Reye and Kira emerged from the lodge, he yanked her down behind a horse trough in time to escape the notice of a squad of armor-clad Cyclopes marching south down the main street. Huge axes and other weapons hung from the giants’ belts or were gripped in their massive fists.

“What on Yden are those creatures?” Reye whispered.

“Mandral calls them cygards,” she murmured. “He’s formed an army of Cyclopes.”

“That’s insane!”

“If we don’t get out of Eastknot before his cygards surround the town, we’ll be captured. My father will have no warning what’s about to befall Nomad Territory.”

“Wyckcrest is seven days from here,” Reye said. “Even if we rode hard, we wouldn’t get there in time to do much good.”

“Ylan is four days away, and I just learned Dorsit is alive. He can transport us directly to my father’s encampment, and help us fight off the invasion. I fear he’s our only hope.”

Reye nodded, peeked over the trough to make sure no cygards were watching, and then pulled Kira to her feet.

“Let’s move.”
