Someone you love will die by your hand. Someone you love will sacrifice their life for yours. Someone you love will forsake your name. It was a curse of kings. The day a seer burned those words into Prince Trystan’s mind, he didn’t believe them. A land without magic could have no seers, no true view of the future. So, why can’t he forget what she said? Princess Rissa has always been underestimated. Facing a marriage to a man she despises, she can’t fathom leaving home. Not when her kingdom is on the brink of war. Not when her people are starving. And what about him. Davion. Her oldest friend and the boy she’s been in love with for as long as she can remember. How is she supposed to leave him? Davion has no last name, no home to claim. As an orphan ward of the king, he never forgets his place. He has no business calling the prince his brother and picturing the princess smiling in his sleep. Those thoughts are forbidden. Trystan, Rissa, and Davion have always done everything together. Now, they have one last adventure. Save their kingdom from the coming war. But it won’t be easy. The only way to survive is to return magic to the land, but the legendary Tri-Gard, keepers of all power, have been missing since before the prince and princess were born. Dive into an epic fantasy romance series full of magic, forbidden love, and a quest to save the kingdom. The Legacy of Light series: A War for Magic A War for Truth A War for Love

Peace descends on the Ravenwood freehold, and Raze Anvrell trusts that as love lays open his life, the turmoil of his past will loosen its grip. But in the halls of Avanoe and catacombs of Ezar, political intrigues thicken.

As his father’s health fails, Raze accompanies his brother to Ezar to plead before the Empress for slavery’s end. When death strikes, he and those who stand in the way of ruthless ambition must battle for those they love, the principles they hold dear, and the world they desire. While heirs compete for the Ezari throne, slavers plot each other’s demise. The future of the Vales depends on the outcome. And if Raze wishes to save his family, his freehold, his chance at love, and his life, he must swallow one more soul.
