A mad king. An escaped slave. One warrior to save the realm…
Asherah doesn’t want much. A former slave, she wants to live out her days in peace and enjoy her hard-won freedom…then she learns that Parthalan’s king, Sahlgren, ordered not only her enslavement, but that of thousands more. Naturally, she starts a rebellion, but while she has a quick mind and a strong sword arm, she lacks both the funds and the soldiers to make her rebellion a success.
Enter Lormac, the elf king of the north. He’s quickly captivated by Asherah and agrees to fund her rebellion. What’s more, he wants to make Asherah his queen… but is that what Asherah wants?
Caol’nir was born to be a warrior, and he can’t think of a worse way to spend his life. He goes through the motions of his role as an elite temple guard—until Alluria arrives. She’s a priestess from the east, and Caol’nir can think of nothing but her bright eyes and soft voice—and the fact that he took an oath to defend the priestess’s chastity.
Rules never much bothered Caol’nir, and he searches for a way to be with Alluria. Then a priestess is attacked, and another is murdered, and Caol’nir realizes that Alluria isn’t safe in the temple. When Caol’nir learns that King Sahlgren himself is responsible for these atrocities, Caol’nir heads north and joins Asherah’s rebellion.
What Caol’nir doesn’t know is that Sahlgren has promised the demon lord a woman of rare and singular beauty, a woman whose magical abilities are rumored to rival the sun god’s…a woman Caol’nir knows all too well.
HEIR TO THE SUN – Book One of the Chronicles of Parthalan
A broken queen. A friendship mired in deceit. Can one man from the desert help hold the realm together?
Asherah, Queen of Parthalan and Lady of Tingu, has led her people through eight centuries of prosperity. That peace shatters when Mersgoth, the mordeth thought long dead, attacks Teg’urnan. In the aftermath a new warrior emerges: Aeolmar, a man as secretive as he is deadly.
Asherah and Aeolmar race across Parthalan in pursuit of Mersgoth, and track the beast to the High Desert. During this time they become close, and Asherah learns that Aeolmar has his own reasons for wanting Mersgoth dead—the mordeth murdered his family. What Asherah doesn’t know is how important Aeolmar’s parents really were, and Aeolmar will do anything to keep that secret.
While in the High Desert Asherah rescues a shopkeeper, Finlay of Cadogan, from a demon attack. Impressed and humbled by the queen’s bravery, Finlay spends the next seven winters training to become one of her soldiers. When Finlay presents himself at Teg’urnan, no one is more surprised than he when Asherah admits him.
On the surface, all seems well in Teg’urnan, but Asherah senses something amiss. Unbeknownst to her, one of her closest companions is conspiring with the Dark Fae against the elves… Against Leran, king of the elves and Asherah’s son in all but blood. Will Asherah learn the truth before it’s too late, or will the rot at Parthalan’s core be the end of her, and Leran?
THE VIRGIN QUEEN — Book Two of the Chronicles of Parthalan
A stolen girl. A legendary champion. A plan that might destroy Parthalan once and for all…
Aeolmar, First Hunter of Parthalan, leads a solitary life. Having long since abandoned his quest to kill Mersgoth—the demon that murdered his family—Aeolmar moves through his days with cold efficiency. Everything changes when he leads a training mission in Brennus, where he’s attacked by Mersgoth himself, and saved by an unlikely heroine.
Latera, first born and heir to Gannera’s throne, is kidnapped and left for dead in Parthalan’s vast forests. A lone human amongst Parthalan’s fae, she makes a home in Brennus, and lives a quiet life—until she finds herself defending a wounded First Hunter from a clutch of demons.
Back in Parthalan, Harek warns Asherah of something called the deva’shi—a warrior loyal only to the demon lord, Asgeloth. Both Aeolmar and Latera suspect that there is more to this deva’shi than what Harek has told them, but before they can learn the truth, Parthalan’s borders are attacked. Will Aeolmar and Latera be able to stop the deva’shi in time, or is it a distraction to hide Harek’s true plans?

A hero near death. A warrior’s greatest challenge. Old enemies resurface as Parthalan’s guardians are at their weakest…
When Latera Demon-killer, the deva’shi of legend, finally slew the mordeth-gall she thought that would be the end of demons in Parthalan. Instead they took a moment to lick their wounds, then the monsters attacked in greater numbers than ever before—but Latera can only watch as she recovers from a near-death experience of her own.
After Latera almost died bearing their third child Aeolmar swore he’d never let anything harm her again—then an old secret came to light and threatened to drive Latera away for good. As he struggled to regain his mate’s trust their eldest child was taken by one with a grudge against his parents, and his grandsire, the sun god Olluhm. Forced to leave Latera behind in Teg’urnan, Aeolmar races across Parthalan to find his missing daughter and discover what it really means to be descended from the gods.
Meanwhile, Asherah the Ruthless, Queen of Parthalan and Lady of Tingu, is dependent on sleeping herbs procured from Mallia, the palace healer—herbs that allow her to sleep but not rest, as memories of the past and imagined threats from the future haunt her every moment. As the queen descends into madness the old king’s children, sensing Asherah’s weakness, make a play for Parthalan’s throne.
As the queen’s paranoia threatens to overtake her an old enemy resurfaces, one with closer ties to Asherah and Aeolmar than anyone suspected. With Aeolmar away and Asherah close to insanity, will Latera be able to protect her family and the rest of Parthalan?
