The Return of the Sha
(Part 1 of 2)
In a world rooted in magic, Lizabet Abbot was seemingly born without any magical gifts of her own—a circumstance unheard of in her kingdom. She is an outcast in her own land, with few friends to call her own.
But when her sister is kidnapped by minions of the evil kingdom of Skite, Lizabet sets out with two companions on a quest to save her. It is during their journey, while in the face of danger, that Lizabet discovers she does have a magical gift—one more powerful than anyone could have imagined.
It is a gift that may save her sister, her king, and her kingdom.
Gripping and filled with wonders, Mantle rouses the senses, and brings life to a world of magic and intrigue.
“An enjoyable tale that centers on a spirited young heroine who possesses potentially world-changing powers. Fans of the genre should find much to savor here.” – Kirkus Reviews
The Smoke Wizard
(Part 2 of 2)
Although Mantle’s three allied kingdoms banded together to defeat Menagraff and his evil minions, that defeat was only the beginning in the War of Mantle. Menagraff, in the meantime, has grown stronger and a wave of darkness and terror has spread over the kingdoms of Tongar, Forris, and Bore. The allied kings find themselves at a loss on how to fight back—or even survive.
Their only hope lies in four teenagers: Lizabet Abbot, who is still discovering her magical abilities; Prince Nikolay of Tongar, reluctantly coming to terms with his royal duties; Kalvik Leopold, whose rebelliousness has put his life in danger; and Dorian Bellows, Lizabet’s loyal friend.
As the four journey into the heart of evil, Lizabet must untangle cryptic clues from an oracle and reach deep within herself in a final face-off with a wicked wizard who reigns over Mantle.
The epic story that began with Mantle: The Return of the Sha comes to a stunning conclusion in The Smoke Wizard.
