New-adult Epic Fantasy Novel

Sorry out-of-print

Tanza, book two of The Astor Chronicles, was released in September 2016.

When your nation falls where should your allegiance lie?

Sarlice and I came to Tanza to escape from the Zeikas, and we were not prepared for a country on the brink of war. Where should our loyalties lie—to our home towns, to Tanza or to each other?

The Zeikas have their fire magic, dragons and demons, but they lack the Kriite ability to communicate across vast distances using the waves. I know one thing—the skyearls will not give up Tanza without a fight.

Soon I will have a skyearl of my own, and the miracle of flight along with it. I was slow to come into my powers in Jaria, but I was wrong to think Krii had no purpose for my life. They have a new name for me here in Tanza: Astor Talon.

Tanza is the second in “The Astor Chronicles”, a series of epic fantasy adventure novels for a new adult audience.

Book 2 Talon is also available.

An omnibus edition of Talon and Tanza is available on Apple, Kobo and GooglePlay.
