Spells of Earth ~ Now Complete! Watch for the Bundle in June.
Elemental power. Cold steel. Twisted sorcery. Magical Monsters. The Fae Mark’d World.
Wizardry burnt out and memory gone, Desora re-built her life in an isolated corner of the Northern Reaches. She only wields the nourishing power of elemental Earth.
She has nothing of Fire, Air, or Water. No fiery bolts, no whirlwinds, no drowning spheres: nothing she can use for defense or attack. Can Desora discover new ways to wield Earth before she becomes prey?
The Wyrded Forest ~ Online distributors … https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09GQV9PRW OR at the Zon … https://books2read.com/u/4Xr5n7
Shape-shifting wolfen threaten Desora, able to transform out of Moon-turn.
Strangely gory deaths in the High Meadow mean a mysterious monster prowls, looking for life to devour.
Shifters and the eldritch monster kill the defenseless. With death menacing, Desora fears she has no protection except her wards.
How will Desora, Captain Brax, and their allies defeat the eldritch monster? Alliance with the Dark Fae Lord Horst offers the only chance.
Yet more than the monster threatens them. Sorcery and magical predators lurk in the forest, waiting to snare them.
Bloody fate balances death on one scale, destruction on the other.
The monster escaped and kills everything in its path. The sorcerer who brought the monster through the portal must also die.
Desora risks losing all she’s regained as she confronts a monster she has no idea how to destroy.
As fierce battles loom, betrayal also rears its ugly head. Will she survive the last battles against the sorcerer, his shapeshifters, and the eldritch monster?

the Fae Mark’d Wizard series
Dark Fantasy Twisted Magic. Foul Sorcery. Dark Corruption.
“Wizard against sorcerer. Fae against dragon. Wyre against Rhoghieri.”
In the recently-revived war between wizards and sorcerers, the Enclave wizards enlist the aid of Rhoghieri, wielders of the four base elements who live in Havens. The sorcerers have enslaved wyre, animal shifters who became outcasts when the wizards declared them anathema.
The Faeron, who withdrew when the dragons were defeated and nearly extinguished from the world, have returned to an uneasy alliance with the wizards—for the dragons did not die out centuries ago. Those nearly-mythic creatures are searching for a way to return so they can wreck vengeance on the Faeron and the wizards who exiled them.
Fae Mark’d Wizard features Alstera
bk 1: Weave a Wizardry Web
Frost Clime threatens the Wizard Enclave. Sorcerers and their servants, shape-shifting wyre, have stolen into the city of Tres Lucerna, home to the Enclave.
Alstera is the greatest of the young wizards in the Enclave; she’s treated like the least.
She’s desperate to join the war against Frost Clime, but the chief wizards refuse. Denied her wish, Alstera explores other ways to increase power.
A Fae disguised in glamour courts her aunt Camisse … but for what purpose? Does Camisee have latent power that the Fae will control? Will a forbidden linkage unlock her magic?
And what of Alstera’s cousins, who have joined an outland wizard’s circle? They dabble in twisted magic.
Danger walks the streets of Tres Lucerna, yet the chief wizards refuse to acknowledge it. Rumors fly … of a taboo nexus of power, of vile blood spells, and of enemy shape-shifters in the heart of the Wizard Enclave.
Then wizards are murdered.
A grim future awaits any wizard lured into forbidden magic.
And a grimmer death awaits wizards caught by the shifters.
Can Alstera escape the spidery lure of corrupted magic? Or will she become the shifters’ next target?

Dark Fantasy. A crazed wielder with no limits on her revenge. A tainted Death-Walker. Can Alstera defeat a blood-spelled monster with the little power freed from her shackles? Or will she cross the tenuous barrier between wizardry and sorcery?
