Winds of Destruction
Twenty years have passed since the Lord of Life toppled the Wind Rebellion and ended the Great War. Mareau Brissé has since lived in the shadows at the edge of Literra, blinded by the grief of the death of his sister and drowning his shame in ale. Once, he could hurl the Wind to a hurricane of power. Now, he can barely walk home from the inn.
When the young Storm suddenly plummets from the skies, claiming to be his niece, Mareau is forced out of his slumber to reconcile with his past. To finish the war his ancestors started and redeem himself from the battle once lost, he must become what he always feared to be: The Lord of Winds.
But the war Storm drags him back to is more than a fight for revenge over the Lord of Life. To destroy a man who has conquered Life and controls the Spirits, one might have to destroy the world itself for a chance to win. With ancient forces begging to be released into the world, the stakes are higher than ever, and Mareau must use every bit of strength to not be blown away by the storm of war.
Embarking on a journey to redeem himself and his family, he follows Storm into a fight that will bring him closer to the Spirits, to Life, and to utter destruction than he ever asked for.
For when the Wind is angry it gets a purpose, and the Wind, people whisper, cannot be killed…
Winds of Desolation
The Palace of Winds Book 2
*spoilers for book 1*
The world is broken. In a moment of desperation, Storm claimed the power of the Spirits, stopped Earth from moving and vanished, leaving her uncle, Mareau, to pick up the pieces of Literra. Stepping up as Lord of Winds, ruler of Literra, he struggles to retain peace and hope as the Ancient Prince Panmar plots for his demise. However, earnestly fighting for his legacy and to redeem his mistakes, Mareau’s inner battles may be a foe too great for him to overcome as the ghosts of his past refuse to let go.
Meanwhile, Storm has taken refuge deep in the mountains, the shame of her failed mission and loss of her brother, Gust, having consumed her. Determined to put things right, she must first resume her identity and arm herself and Mareau with the rage of Life and the power of the Wind if they are to win against their immortal enemy.
But can Storm and Mareau use each other’s strengths to rise above their ancestors, or is the gusting Wind taking its final breath?
Heir to The Sun
The Chronicles of Eshea
After a volatile relationship, all Aura wanted was to start a new life far from her ex-boyfriend, Dave. A sleepy café in a small town seemed the perfect place to reinvent herself, and when a mysterious woman befriends her, enchanting her with fairytales and offering an escape to another world, Aura could have got into more than she bargained for. But when Dave unexpectedly shows up, angry and determined, Aura’s left with little choice but to run.
This time, she runs far, far away, across an invisible border to another world; a world of magic where everything is possible. A world, where Aura is known to everyone but her, as The Princess of Light. And although her new title comes with the daunting responsibility of saving the world, the prize of doing so could give her what she’s always wanted: A family.
As Aura engages on a magical journey of discovery, her hopes to break free from Dave once and for all soon start to fade as she realizes that breaking up with The Angel of Darkness is easier said than done. And even the light needs darkness to cast shadows...
Will Aura have the courage to embrace her new world, or will the shadows of her old life keep her in darkness forever?
