The Quintessence Cycle, an epic fantasy tale that weaves a story of magic, battle, love, betrayal, retribution, and survival.
Your soul is your magic. It is life. It is death. It is the path to the throne. The human nobility will do anything to steal it.
A civilization on the brink of extinction, a renowned assassin in hiding, a young boy hunted for his magic, a count’s son in search of glory, a fallen queen after vengeance, a count who would betray all for the crown. Their paths are entwined. But who is pulling the strings?
Book 1: Game of Souls: Keedar, a young commoner, and Winslow, a count’s son, are set on opposite paths yet harbor the same dream: to become adept in soul magic. One, to escape the slums and seek justice for his murdered mother and his persecuted people, the other, to revel in the glory of battle. When their paths cross, everything changes. Winslow's father, Count Ainslen, employs a ruthless assassin and a barbarous enemy in pursuit of the throne.
Book 2: SoulBreaker: A new king is crowned in the wake of the bloody battles of Succession Day but a threat to his fledgling rule arises; Keedar and Winslow grow into their power and learn the truth of their lives; fallen Queen Terestere plots revenge; a renowned assassin comes out of hiding to settle old debts.
Book 3: Crown of Souls: Thar, Keedar, Winslow, and Terestere come together in a final battle to determine the fate of a dying race. Ainslen unleashes the power of his stolen magic. An unexpected foe reveals himself.
Soulsworn: A Quintessence Side Story: Follow the path of Aidah Rostlin as she struggles to survive after Succession Day, in hopes her husband and son return to her to help protect her daughters, Nerisse and Clara from assassins.
