Sneak Peek Teasers: BLADES OF MAGIC (Crown Service #1)

Blades Of Magic - 1800x2700Hello readers :) – The release date for Crown Service #1, Blades of Magic is officially March 31, 2014!

This book introduces you to a brand-new main character – Sara Fairchild and a whole set of new adventures.

Sara Fairchild is a kick-ass heroine who can best any person she comes across.

Crown Service is set a few centuries before the start of the Courtlight series. You will recognize many features but a whole lot will be new to you.

Sara Fairchild is not as trusting or as kind as Ciardis Weathervane. She is crafty, she is cunning and she will kill you if necessary.

Crown Service is a series and you might see one of your favorite daemoni princes in future pages.

Both Sara Fairchild and Crown Service need your support. When I release this book at the end of the month tell me what you think. What you liked, what you didn’t like. How you see it progressing. Then leave your thoughts in a review. 😉

Update 04/15/2014:

Your support has been OVERWHELMING. I’ll talk more about it in my author newsletter but Blades Of Magic is my first book to make the Amazon Top 500 on release. I’m floored. 🙂 Thank you so much.

Here’s a synopsis:

Sara Fairchild is the best duelist in all of Sandrin. Lauded for her skills in the fighting arena, she is ready to join the city guardsmen. But the shame of her father’s military desertion eats at her every day. One night changes all that. When Sara finds out her father might not have been a coward, but rather a hero, she is determined to prove it true. She joins the emperor’s army. Mages don’t stand a chance against her. But true love might.

Not convinced? Read this awesome blurb and get to know what you’re in for, then check out my first teaser:

It is not a peaceful time in the Algardis Empire. War is raging and seventeen-year-old Sara Fairchild will be right in the middle of it.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Sara is the daughter of a disgraced imperial commander, executed for desertion. Sara is also the best duelist and hand-to-hand combatant in Sandrin. She lives quietly with the family’s shame but when challenged about her family’s honor, her opponent inevitably loses.

On the night she finds out her father’s true last actions, she takes the Mercenary Guilds’ vows to serve in the emperor’s army. Using her quick wits and fierce fighting skills, she earns a spot in the first division.

There she discovers secrets the mages on both sides would prefer stay hidden. Dark enemies hunt her and soon it’s not just Sara questioning the motivation behind this war.

While fighting mages, blackmailing merchants and discovering new friends, Sara comes across something she’s never had before – passion. The question is – can she fight for her empress against a mage who might unwittingly claim her heart?

This is year one of the Initiate Wars. Sara is hoping it doesn’t become the year she dies.
