Weapons of Power


View Map of Mageles

They weren't chosen. They aren't prepared. Now they are the only hope.

Millenia ago, magic flowed through the world like air. Godlike mages ruled, and those without power became slaves, subservient to the whims of magic-users. To right the world, an enchanted barrier was created to form Mageles, a land free of magic. Over time magic slowly returned, and now the Lord Protector wants to return Mageles to an era where magical supremacy will once again dominate.

They are five: reluctant warrior, street rat, aspiring adventurer, conflicted pacifist and pampered noblegirl. Five misfit youths who were never meant to receive the weapons of power. Only together do they stand a chance against the forces arrayed against them. Separated by a continent and pursued by magic-wielding clerics, the weaponbearers must find each other—but first they must find themselves.

An epic coming of age fantasy bursting with magic and adventure, The Silver Portal is the first book in the Weapons of Power trilogy. Set in a richly drawn world with an intricate magic system, The Silver Portal will delight lovers of page-turning sword and sorcery fiction.

The prequel story, The Desert Palace, gives a peek into an era when magic was commonplace and magical creatures roamed. Zedane, sick of magical duels abroad, is determined to achieve high status in his father's court when a fatal misstep threatens a devastating war. The crisis leads to the formation of Mageles, and this novelette is available exclusively to fans who sign up to my reader's group.


The Black Bearer, Book 2, is due in 2018.
