About Sword of Shadows (Book Two of The Silver Web)

Lands ravaged. Dreams destroyed. Demons set loose upon the earth.

Sisters in magic, Eolyn and Adiana seek to revive a millennial tradition once forbidden to women. When war strikes, their fledgling community of magas is destroyed; its members killed, captured or scattered.

Determined to defend her people, Eolyn seeks to escape the occupied province and deliver to King Akmael a weapon that might secure their victory. Trapped by the invading army, Adiana is taken prisoner and placed at the mercy of the ruthless Prince Mechnes.

Even as their world is torn asunder, Eolyn and Adiana cling to a common dream. Courage and perseverance guide them toward a future where the Daughters of Aithne will flourish in a world set free from the violence of men.

“War propels the story forward, and the characters are at their best when circumstances are at their worst.” -Publishers Weekly

Cover art and design by Thomas Vandenberg.

Sword of Shadows was first published in 2014 by Hadley Rille Books, under the title HIGH MAGA. Those of you who have read the first edition will find a few changes in this new version. The opening chapters have been tightened, and I’ve rewritten several scenes from the point of view of the novel’s arch-villainess, Rishona, Queen of the Syrnte. Best of all, the new edition includes a preview of the third and final novel of the series, DAUGHTER OF AITHNE, set for release in Spring 2017.

About Eolyn (Book One of The Silver Web)

Eolyn cover flat2 reduced 1 22 16In a land ravaged by civil war, the Mage King Kedehen initiates a ruthless purge of the magas. Eolyn, last daughter of the magas and sole heiress to their forbidden craft, seeks refuge in the vast and impenetrable South Woods. When she meets the mysterious Akmael, heir to the throne of this violent realm, she embarks on a path of hope, seduction, betrayal, and war. Desire draws Eolyn toward Akmael’s dark embrace, but fate binds her to Corey of East Selen, a cunning mage whose ambition challenges the limits of love and loyalty.

Can she trust either man?

Hunted in a realm of powerful wizards and brutal deceptions, Eolyn must find her own path to freedom or she will burn on the pyre.

“Vigorously told deceptions and battle scenes, with a romantic thread.” –Publishers Weekly

A “dream-like, fairy-tale ambiance…immersive political machinations and grand battle scenes.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Masterfully written.” –The Kindle Book Review

EOLYN is available FREE on Kindle, June 20 and 21st. Download your copy today!

    1. Thank you, Dennis! Thomas Vandenberg deserves credit for all the artwork, but I suppose the story did inspire him, a little. 🙂
