The Firelord's Legacy is an epic, sword and sorcery series beginning with The Firelord's Crown.
Raethwin. The Red Witch. Perhaps the greatest sorceress of her era. She sought to save her world. Instead she doomed it. The Firelord's Crown, source of her untold power. It brought about the impending disaster but Tamilin, Master Healer and Seer, believes it may also be their salvation. There's just one problem. Raethwin's six companions fled when their homeland was destroyed and divided the Crown between them. Five made it to safety. The sixth vanished. Master Tamilin believes it may lie in the uncharted northlands and sends an expedition in search of it. The Firelord’s Crown begins when Airen, a young healer and lone survivor of the venture, reaches the land called Dinith in search of the lost piece. Dinith, however, is a land in turmoil. Magic is forbidden, the glories of the past forgotten. Airen and his quest are not welcome but could Falath, the king's heir, be the ally that he desperately craves? Perhaps, but Falath, descendant of the Lost Ship, has his own secrets...
The Firelord's Crown is available NOW on Amazon.
Book 2 Firelord's Heir is also available on Amazon! Now a prince in exile, Falath faces an uncertain future in a land of strangers; some of them friends, others most definitely enemies. The epic tale begun in The Firelord's Crown continues. Falath and Airen negotiate the dangers of new realms as they journey to the mystical heart of Mandras. They have the missing piece of the Crown but others want it too and will stop at nothing to acquire it. Falath must learn to control and develop his gifts of maisterie but still mourns the loss of his kinsman, Rollo. Meanwhile, a strange, fair-haired man is discovered by rebel scouts and subsequently healed by Jessal, their charismatic leader. This Mirin has no memory of who or what he is but Jessal realises that he could hold the key to their salvation. Answers lie with Guild Master Tamilin and both parties travel to the Healers' Isle in search of them but Mandras is a very dangerous place indeed. In his own land Falath is a prince, here he is just a valuable commodity...
Firelord's Curse is the third enthralling volume of the Firelord's Legacy series which began with The Firelord's Crown.
Falath and Airen have escaped from the fortress of Dim-Locil only to fall into the clutches of the mysterious and dangerous Stone People. Rollo, meanwhile, has entered the Ghost Wood, home of the Eye of Chimerand, another piece of the Firelord's Crown. Shimarah, High Priestess of the Eye, is intrigued by this stranger but her father views him as a danger to his realm, a threat to be neutralised or eliminated. Further to the north, Darial, badly wounded during the attack at the Isle, desperately needs to reach the capital with his information about their chief adversary's identity. First, however, he must try to cross the Great River but it's guarded by the Blue Company, sworn enemies of the rebels. Will any of them reach Caer-Banc before its too late and Corinius' plans are accomplished? For their world's sake they must but the odds are stacked against them. And what of Maristan? Alone in the stronghold of the Usurper, pregnant with Rollo's child and completely at Malglint's mercy. Can she survive her bitter circumstances or is she fated to die as her father before her, burnt at the stake as a witch?
