The Gates of Fire & Earth is now here!
It has been just over a year since Spark of Defiance, book 1 of the Games of Fire trilogy, was published. A Year!
I had BIG plans to finish the entire trilogy in 2016. And I tried. I really did. Often I described writing book 2, the Gates of Fire & Earth, as trying to wrestle a kracken. It did NOT want to flow or behave. Never before have my characters been so stubborn. But then, never have they faced such huge challenges!
I knew when I started writing Games of Fire that this trilogy was a big story with lots of characters and plots and … ok, I admit it. I have a LOT more empathy for George R.R. Martin now. Lol. I know this book isn’t his A Song of Ice & Fire series, but it seems to be mine. Though I’m hoping the final book, A New Goddess, behaves with slightly better manners.
But that is a different day! What is important is that at looonnnng last, the Gates of Fire and Earth is now available online on pre-order. And it is even on SALE! Yup, for 99¢ you can pick up the next book in my epic fantasy trilogy and the good news is release is only 2 weeks away on April 28th. A very short pre-order to make up for the super long delay writing has taken!
Enjoy the story as it continues to impossible challenges!
Success will destroy elemental magic. Failure condemns this world and the next.
Named Guardian of the Elemental Spheres, Lavinia seeks the lost gates to the spirit realm and their ancient guardians. But some of the guardians have left their duties and those that have stayed may prove as dangerous as her enemy, whose wrath threatens the world. To end an ancient punishment inflicted on them by the Goddess for their role in a forgotten war, the Ashanti will conquer this world and that of spirit to gain power over death.
Lavinia must close the gates to stop the Ashanti, even though by doing so she risks ending all elemental powers. And the act has consequences greater than the ancient guardians imagine.
But one gate has a new guardian as well as the old, and the last time he saw Lavinia, he tried to kill her before she stole his power. And he’s been seeking revenge …
