Dear Reader Letter from Alexis Morgan on My Lady Mage
There are so many reasons I am excited about the release of My Lady Mage, the first book in my new "Warriors of the Mist" series! I've always loved the fantasy genre and the chance to visit all kinds of magical places. Getting the opportunity to create one of those worlds myself has been a real adventure.
To begin with, deciding what the rules were when it came to the use of magic was complicated, and sometimes the rules can have unexpected consequences. After all, there has to be a price for wielding magic, whether it's paid in blood, personal energy, or even a piece of someone's soul. Did I mention that the other name for the warriors is The Damned?
The gods gifted the warriors with an animal companion to serve at their side throughout the centuries. I spent hours deciding what kind of animal would each warrior choose. I can't wait for you all to meet them, especially Hob. After all, what kind of man would bond with a gargoyle?
Most of all, I love the five Warriors of the Mist themselves. Although they vary greatly in personality, they are all warriors in the finest sense of the word, standing ready to defend the innocents of their world against a spreading evil. Brothers-in-arms, bonded by centuries of service to their gods, they march out of the river shoulder-to-shoulder to take on yet another mission.
But from the beginning, this calling is different. Watching the Warriors of the Mist learn to risk not just their lives, but their hearts as well was an amazing journey.
I hope you all come to love the Warriors of the Mist as much as I do.
