He was betrayed.  The heir to Seadragon’s Fief was betrayed by his own father.  All because of a beautiful young woman who gave the widowed king a newborn son.  She whispered in her lover’s ear that the firstborn heir was planning treason.

 

Taken far from his northern home to the desert city of Tandir Wylham stood chained to a post dying of thirst and hunger.  He cursed the beauty who beguiled his father and brought Wyl to such an ignoble end.

 

Meanwhile the young and powerful mage Lysander searched the city for a warrior who could aid his home Steed’s Hold which was under siege by a group bent on controlling all free holds in the desert.  His plan was to find a slave to aid their cause who would be set free once victory was achieved.

 

The terms of purchase for the slave Wylham came at great cost to both men.  The pact would bind them together, forever.  Worse, if that was possible Wylham refused to accept his new status and fought his changed reality at every turn.  The chance of them making it to Steed’s Hold, let alone helping the beleaguered town lessened with each new day.

 

A sweeping adventure fraught with emotional entanglement, Desert Ice is a hard won love story.  The main characters embark on a twisting, turning journey where Wyl and Lysander are forced to deal with the worst humanity has to offer.  Unable to understand each other in the beginning, then followed by miscommunication leads to heartache in this angst ridden drama.  A gritty, honest, and sometimes unsettling tale at times, Desert Ice is an intensely layered riveting read.  Wyl and Lysander’s painful start ultimately leads to a rich, rewarding ending.

WARLOCK IN TRAINING by T. J. NicholsWarlock in Training by T. J. Nichols
Published by DSP Publications Genres: Fantasy, MM

The last thing Angus Donohue wanted was to pass his demon summoning class.  Becoming a warlock was not something Angus aspired to.  It was bad enough to have his powerful, arrogant father bullying him into entering the Warlock College.  Angus would love to fail and go into medicine instead.

 

Unfortunately for the budding warlock he succeeds in summoning a demon.  What he didn’t expect was to be taken back to Demonside by the powerful demon mage Saka.

 

Apparently, Saka was ready for a summoning so that he could kidnap a warlock in order to rebalance their world.  Whether he’s ready to hear the truth or not Angus is witness to an eye-opening experience.  One that the warlocks back home don’t want anyone to know. Angus’s understanding of how their two worlds work will be irrevocably changed.   He can’t live in Demonside no matter how he feels about Saka and going home is dangerous.  Caught between two realms and neither is safe.

 

Warlock in Training tells a unique, complex, and addictive story that is hard to put down.  The intricately woven plot is imaginative and fantastical.  Characters are able to realistically tell this original story as lie after lie is uncovered by a naïve student. Saka is a special individual, straightforward and strong.  Together they have to save two worlds. Their forbidden feelings bring added spice to the storyline.  Danger and drama abound in the completely enthralling Warlock in Training.

THE SORCERER’S GUARDIAN by Antonia AquilanteThe Sorcerer's Guardian by Antonia Aquilante
Series: Chronicles of Tournai
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: Fantasy, MM

The peaceful principality of Tournai is threatened by a faraway kingdom governed by a power hungry ruler bent on owning the world.  Prince Phillip and his consort Prince Amory have charged their most skilled sorcerer Savarin with charting suspicious weaknesses in the centuries old magical barrier surrounding their land.  They must do all they can to fortify Tournai from the threat.

 

As a child of dockland laborers Savarin was never expected to manifest such powerful magical talent, especially at so early an age.  Well aware that most people shy away from his presence Savarin leads a solitary life.  He spends his time studying anything and everything to do with magic to better strengthen his gifts.

 

Following Prince Phillip’s command the sorcerer is sent to map the outer reaches of their lands.  Savarin is dismayed when the prince insists that Loriot, Captain of the royal guard, accompany and protect the sorcerer.  Worse, as time goes by he feels an inexplicable desire for the captain.  Nothing must interfere with his work.  The princes are counting on him. To be distracted by a handsome man is madness, simple madness.

 

A rich blend of fantasy, drama, and romance comes alive in the latest Chronicles of Tournai story The Sorcerer’s Guardian.  Excellent characterization drives the tale of an arrogant sorcerer and a noble captain who have absolutely nothing in common except their love of Tournai and the ruling family.  The unlikely romance slowly unfolds as the pair journey across the country.  The Sorcerer’s Guardian believably eases into their developing relationship and sets the stage for a powerful climax.  Another unique and entertaining tale from Tournai.
