Mageborn

MageBorn_TitlingAdelia Kreegan led a normal life until the day her family was viciously torn from her. The miracle of her escape is the curse that haunts her daily. She seeks refuge in the shadows of the nearby city of Viscosa, but an intrinsic ability has brought curious eyes to her. 

Gaston Camlann is a sage that can show her how to harness her innate powers. Intrigued by the young woman, he offers to teach her the arcane arts. Throughout their lessons, he will teach her what it means to be a true mage, and the dangers that lie on that road. 

In this prequel tale to the Tellest trilogy, The Child of the Stars, we learn about Kaos Kreegan’s sister after the tragedy that struck their family. You can read this tale out of order with The Bindings of Fate and the other books in the trilogy, but you may find it more interesting to read those novels first.

Son of the Storm

Son_of_the_Storm_TitlingThe dwarves of Clan Thunderfury toiled away at the dirt beneath the Goldenscale Cliffs. Day by day, they mined the stone and by night they drank away their aches and pains with a mug of frothy mead or ale. All the while, Dorn Thunderfury felt the outcast among his people. More comfortable among the grass and clean air than the mines below, he was often relegated to banal tasks. 

His whole world was shaken by the appearance of the human babe upon the hammer of their ancient king. But when Bolt was adopted by the clan, under his care, his place in it was ought to change. 

When Dorn sat down to tell the tales of his son, they often grew in size and shape. Though there were bound to be some inconsistencies, one thing was true: Even among the dwarves, Bolt was a hero.
