Two teams, two missions, and one world to save against the clock.

Gaby and Sam must lead their teams while facing personal problems. Gaby, divided between her duties and her musical passion, tormented by memories of the distant past that have returned, must find the Crown of the Dead before the enemy gets it first to win the brewing war. Sam, torn between her gifted human side and her freefolk side, and between two loves, must help an amnesiac deity to fix the whole of magick, before her people become easy targets. Will their inner turmoil hinder them or give them the strength they need to find unexpected ways to solve the quests?

In a world where magic and science intermingle, anything is possible, including finding out who you really are.


Maria Haskins - Author and B&N Blogger (about The Withered King): "The Withered King is an action-packed blend of magic and mayhem, sword and sorcery, science fiction and fantasy. The book is full of entertaining characters, has a sense of humor and adventure, and there's a crackling video-game vibe added for good measure. It's a book that should appeal to readers looking for adventure and fun."

Booklist (about The Withered King): A glorious sci-fi adventure for any reader of the fandom of the classic video game Soul Blade."


Witty and Sarcastic Bookclub (about The Withered King): It was a fun, fast book, full of action beats. It was also surprisingly introspective and deep. As entertaining as it was, this is ultimately a book about second chances. I found it highly enjoyable."


Diane Morrison Fiction (about The Withered King): "It’s a breath of fresh air in a literary market that’s currently enamoured of “grim-for-grim’s-sake."


Portland Book Review (about The Cursed Titans): "I enjoyed the intense action and how science, fantasy, and martial arts are combined together to create a surreal experience."


Witty and Sarcastic Bookclub (about The Cursed Titans): "I was very impressed at the way the author balanced a fast-paced fantasy book with what feels like a deeply personal exploration of depression, its effects, and what it truly means to overcome. The Cursed Titans was very well done."
