The Shattered Sea Duology

Soul Sallowers (Book I)

When swallowed, some souls gift insights, wisdom, a path to understanding. Others unleash power, proficiency with a sword, and indifference to death. One soul assimilates with ease. But swallow a host of the dead and risk a descent into madness.

Estranged from his family over the murder of his wife, young Raze Anvrell wields his fists to vent his rage. Then a chance at a new life beckons, and he retreats to the foothills of the Ravenwood, the haunt of unbound ghosts. He and his mentor build a freehold, a life of physical labor and the satisfaction of realizing a dream. They raise horses and whittle by the fire until the old man dies, and Raze swallows his first soul.

When his brother reaches out, open wounds begin to scar. But the tenuous peace won’t last. While those who rule the Vales yield to the lure of their ambitions, slavers of Ezar roam the countryside, hunting for human chattel. While one man manipulates the law, another heeds the souls of violence howling in his head.

Raze too listens to his soul’s whispers, and as danger intrudes on his quiet life, he has no choice but to return to his father’s world and join the fight.

Legacy of Souls (Book II)

Peace descends on the Ravenwood freehold, and Raze Anvrell trusts that as love lays open his life, the turmoil of his past will loosen its grip. But in the halls of Avanoe and catacombs of Ezar, political intrigues thicken. Deflection and secrets manipulate the truth, assassins whet their blades, and more than one ruler stakes a claim in the quest for power.

A swallower of multiple souls, Sajem files his teeth and inks his eyes. Tentacles of madness slither deeper into the slaver’s afflicted mind. His raids grow brazen, tactics harsh, and conscience stripped bare. Alliances fracture and form, and no one is too old or young, too wealthy or beautiful to spare.

As his father’s health fails, Raze accompanies his brother to Ezar to plead before the Empress for slavery’s end. When death strikes, he and those who stand in the way of ruthless ambition must battle for those they love, the principles they hold dear, and the world they desire.

While heirs compete for the Ezari throne, slavers plot each other’s demise. The future of the Vales depends on the outcome. And if Raze wishes to save his family, his freehold, his chance at love, and his life, he must swallow one more soul.

The Dragon Soul Quartet

Thus begins the epic four-book adventure that stretches from the quaint village of Taran Leigh and the mountains of the Mirror to the Anghard Archipelago in the western sea. Welcome to a world where wealth and power rule, fear is the weapon of choice, and cruelty is the cost of a pocket of gold. It’s a world that forces a choice—indifference, complicity, or defiance.

The dragons of land and sea, souls of grace and beauty, hang in the balance. Will they descend into the howling violence of terror and pain inflicted upon them by their tormentors? Or will they fly free, the creatures they were born to be? With each book, the stakes rise and far more than the dragons’ soul lies at risk.

Then, a curved talon rends flesh and dragon scale, rattling against white ribs. Blood falls like rain and alliances shift. The battle for the dragon’s soul begins again.

Eye of Fire (Book 2)

The black-barred cells groan open and webbed wings sweep the sky. The dragons fly free of their bonds, as do the ruthless men who enslaved them.

Armed with fresh power, Earlin leads her village in search of a new myth. Not all forgive their ruin at her hands, and fires blaze in retribution. Driven by flames from the Mirror, Conall and the skyriders descend on Taran Leigh, complicating Earlin’s life. Malice flows with the governors as they escape down the silver river to the sea.

Across the sea, new forces are at play. A master of fear, Phelan plots, skimmers raid ports, and the wealthy hoard. Morgen, captain of the Seabourne, sails the archipelago without a care until visitors from the Mirror dare him to see. No longer can he ignore the desperately poor, the hunting of dragons, and the political manipulations that threaten his home. Yet, he cannot save the islands alone. (Order Here)

As swiftly as a storm abrades the sea, the threads of his dream unravel. Skimmers seize their prize, exposing his deception. The Guild retaliates, all Morgen holds dear thrust into peril—his ships and wealth, his freedom, the lives of those he loves, and his own survival. (Order Here)

In this epic conclusion, forces from both sides of the sea converge on the Arran Archipelago for a final reckoning.

The Melding of Aeris

TMOA EBOOKGenerations ago, the realms fell to fire. The Burn–the only means of destroying a lush land so manipulated by man that while its crops sated hunger, it poisoned the flesh. Now the wilderness slowly reseeds, hard lessons learned through starvation, displacement, and poverty. What remains for nature’s tinkerers? 

Pathway, the coveted distillation that enables the grafting of skin across species. The Sahls of the Sea Barrows meld spiral horns to their skulls, reptilian scale to their chests. They embed the razor teeth of sea beasts in the bones of their forearms and replace the flesh on their backs with the pelts of wolves. Women of wealth adorn their bodies with serpent skin as elegant as black lace, tufted tails, plumed feathers, and silken fur, their own skin cast off, no longer desirable.

Then they bear children … creatures like Aeris, a man who longs to be human. He will discover there is only one way to acquire human skin.

Blue light ripples and crackles as the shield walls fracture. The remnants of a doomed civilization stand vigil outside, intent on plunder and slaves, desirous of untainted blood to strengthen their broken lives. With the poisons, came deformities and powers, enhanced senses and the ability to manipulate waves of energy—lightbenders and fire-wielders.

For those who thrived for generations within the walls, the broken world looms, strange and deadly, slowly dying. While the righteous pray for salvation, Rimma prepares for battle, fueled by rage and blinded by vengeance. Her twin, Angel, bound to her by unbreakable magic, seeks light in the darkness, hope in the future, and love in a broken world.

The Sorcerer’s Garden

51G+fs9eWtL._UY250_Recently fired and residing with her sweetly overbearing mother, Madlyn needs a job—bad. In a moment of desperation, she accepts a part-time position reading at the bedside of adventurer and amateur writer Cody Lofton. A near-drowning accident left the young man in a vegetative state, and his chances of recovery wane with each passing day.

Cody’s older brother, Dustin, and eccentric grandmother aren’t prepared to give up on the youngest son of Portland, Oregon’s royalty.

Dustin’s a personable guy, bordering on naïve, and overwhelmed by familial corporate duties and cutthroat partners. Grandmother Lillian’s a meddler with an eye for the esoteric, dabbling in Dustin’s life and dealing out wisdom like a card shark. One innocent conversation at a time, she sucks Madlyn into the Lofton story, dubbing her the princess and bestowing on her the responsibility of both grandsons’ destinies.

And all Madlyn wanted was a simple reading job.

Uninspired by her self-imposed stack of literary selections, Madlyn opts for Cody’s work-in-progress. Fantasy isn’t her favorite, but with only four chapters completed, reading The Sorcerer’s Garden should be no sweat, right?

Little does she realize, the story will begin writing itself and, by the hand of destiny, become her own.

  2. Sigh. Ain’t this always the way it goes for me: I comment innocently on a short story, the writer of it comes and comments on mine and then I start stalking (not really) that person across the internet. I’ve been on your Amazon account, your Goodreads account, and your WordPress blog. I’m very impressed by the volume and quality of your output and the sweet sharpness of your intellect. I’ll stop now so that I don’t wind up sounding a lot more creepy than I really am. Too late? Uh-oh. 🙂

I have read some samples and look forward to finding time to read and maybe even reviewing some of your books.

        • I have, but I take advantage of Amazon’s kdp promotional tools which means being exclusive to Amazon. I realize that I may miss some readers, but through my promotions I reach thousands that I wouldn’t otherwise, so it’s worth it to me. Most reading devices (like my ipad and phone) have free kindle apps. Do you read primarily in epub format?

            I see, that makes sense. Amazon is great, and I would probably be using it, but I moved to a country that doesn’t receive Amazon shipping services, nor can you easily find a Kindle reader here. I use an eReader that supports Adobe Digital Editions, so I buy most books from Google Play Books.

            However, I do have an android phone, so I have access to the Kindle app if need be. Do you have a particular book that you would recommend to a new reader? I don’t have a preference between fantasy and sci-fi.

                    I’ve read up to chapter four of Catling’s Bane so far, and I am enjoying it. Each chapter feels like the perfect little chunk to read in between work and other things. I’m also quite intrigued about the world, and interested in finding out how everything comes together and what happens to Catling and her “special mark.”

                    I’ve also found the amazon app to be really nice. I like how it can highlight words on the screen so I don’t have to look them up if I don’t know them. All in all, it is more enjoyable to read on the phone than I thought it would be.

    As a “young” (but not young) writer, I came to this website wondering why, when I have never been in a violent environment, my writing was often violent. Much of it takes place in, or is affected by, WW1, so that is self-explanatory to a point. However, much of my novel takes place far from the war, and thus I was concerned. This was most helpful, and I thank you for sharing your soul, not just your books.

    • Thank you for stopping by. I have many of the same questions as you. Why are my books violent when this hasn’t been a persistent factor in my life. Yet we live in a world surrounding by violence. We can’t help but be affected, wonder about the human tendency toward aggression, and what our responsibility is in standing up to it. I wish you luck with your book and hope the telling of your tale was a worthwhile experience, literally and personally. Blessings.
