An unlikely young hero. An incredible destiny.

Eva has never swung a sword. She’s never flown through the open sky on a gryphon or dreamed of being a hero. She’s content with a quiet life — two feet firmly on the ground, working in her foster-father’s forge. But that’s all about to change.

When Eva discovers a young thief hiding in her woodshed with a stolen gryphon egg, the shy, timid girl is forced to leave everything she’s ever known to become Windsworn — elite warriors who ride fierce gryphons into battle. As she struggles to learn the ways of the Windsworn, Eva finds herself caught in a plot to destroy the gryphon riders and plunge the kingdom into war, a plot that somehow involves her deceased parents.

In the face of growing danger, can Eva conquer her fears and unravel the secrets of her past in time to save the Windsworn?

Fans of Eragon, Harry Potter and the Dragonriders of Pern will love this fast-paced coming of age fantasy, set in a world of majestic gryphons and ancient magic.

In Selenoth, the race of Man is on the ascendant. The ancient dragons sleep. The ghastly Witchkings are no more; their evil power destroyed by the courage of Men and the fearsome magic of the Elves. The Dwarves have retreated to the kingdoms of the Underdeep, the trolls hide in their mountains, and even the savage orc tribes have learned to dread the iron discipline of Amorr's mighty legions. But after four hundred years of mutual suspicion, the rivalry between two of the Houses Martial that rule the Amorran Senate threatens to turn violent, and unrest sparks rebellion throughout the imperial provinces. In the north, the barbarian reavers who have long plagued the coasts of the White Sea unexpectedly plead for the royal protection of the King of Savondir, as they flee a vicious race of wolf-demons who have invaded their islands. And in the distant east, the war drums echo throughout the mountains as orcs and goblins gather in vast numbers, summoned by their bestial gods.

Epic fantasy at its deepest and most gripping, A THRONE OF BONES is Book I in the ARTS OF DARK AND LIGHT. DRM-free.

Eadmund Skalleson has been lost, tortured by the death of his first wife, but his father has lost patience with him. He needs heirs for his kingdom. He wants his son restored to the fierce warrior he once was. And when his young daughter has a dream about Jael, the woman who will save him, he makes an alliance that he may live to regret.

Jael and Eadmund will fight against their forced union, but the dreamers know that this marriage is meant to be. It must happen for the sake of Osterland.

He had spent the first decade of his adult life ignoring this destiny, instead choosing to test his fighting prowess against any monster he could find, the more dangerous the better. When the peaceful village he was raised in is attacked by Devils and his adoptive father is killed, Mugen finds the responsibility of leadership suddenly thrust upon his unwilling shoulders. On one last adventure before settling down, he gains the help of a surly halfling pirate, a scatterbrained old healer, a drunken kung-fu minotaur, a scientifically-minded knight, and a bizarre magical spirit to obtain the one item which would prove his abilities beyond any doubt: The crown of the evil warlord Hexzik.

The story is complex and intertwining in a way that only a fully-developed fantasy world can provide, and thus THE WARLORD'S CROWN sets the stage for the next book in the series, THE ENDLESS BATTLEFIELD (coming soon).
