Elizabeth Vaughan staged a “superb, clever return to the desolate Warlands” (Midwest Book Review) in Dagger-Star. Now, she continues the epic story of Palins, a land in the throes of upheaval…
There is no one more adored… Everyone knows that the Lady High Priestess Evelyn is virtuous and noble, one of the leaders of the rebellion against the unjust usurper, as well as a gentle healer who channels the powers of the gods to help the sick and injured.
There is no one more despised… Orrin Blackhart, the Scourge of Palins, is renowned as an evil man. As the war leader of one of the usurper’s supporters, he has killed many and has stood by while the sorceress he served created an army of the undead.
And there is nothing more unexpected than passion… When Orrin takes Evelyn prisoner during the war, each will uncover more to the other than they expected. And souls that should have clashed will be forged in desire, redemption, and glory…
When I read, I want to be swept away, to a world where swords clash, magic amazes, and evil rises to threaten the hero and heroine. Fantasy is my favorite, and I write the kinds of stories that I want to read.
There is just something about losing yourself in a book. There is nothing better than looking up, blinking, and realizing that it's way past bedtime, that you need to be up in the morning, but you just want to read one more page, one more chapter, just to find out what happens next. No matter the ills and worries of the day, a good book makes that all disappear for a short time.
Writing that kind of book is the closest I will ever come to wielding true magic.
In White Star, you’ll read about Lady High Priestess Evelyn and Orrin Blackhart, the Scourge of Palins. I sincerely hope it sweeps you up and away for a few precious, magical hours. If it does, be sure to let me know - contact me through my website.
