Time reverses, the
Hero of old returns
Stolen from the temple
Hero of a new age struck down
Accursed sword nearly brings
Only the Goddess's
Will could undo the sorcery of
From far away
True love appears.
How will Lysandro
Escape the growing danger
Reveal himself, without his mask
Overcome his fear and face his
The Three-Faced Goddess has always protected Theron.
Now, it's the Shadow's turn.
To protect her people from Argoss, the Three-Faced Goddess forged enchanted weapons powerful enough to defeat the wicked sorcerer.
Now, ages later, those relics are disappearing.
Lysadro knows the village magistrate Marek is responsible, and he searches for proof disguised as the masked protector the Shadow of Theron.
But when Marek wounds him with an accursed sword that shouldn't exist, Lysandro must find a way to stop Marek from gaining any more sacred artifacts.
As the feud between Lysandro and Marek throws Lighura into chaos, and the appearance of the beautiful Seraphine complicates matters, Lysadro tries to find the courage to protect her from Marek and win her heart.
Just as the danger mounts, the sacred stones promising the return of Argoss alight and time to find the relics grows shorter. Can the Shadow of Theron and the Temple Council's priestesses recover the relics or will the truth they uncover destroy everyone in Theron? One thing is certain. The three temples to the Goddess have been keeping secrets: not just from the faithful, but from each other.
Wheel of Time readers and fans of Brandon Sanderson, Terry Brooks, and Trudy Canavan will delight in this epic fantasy adventure duology infused with romance.

I'm an historian by day, a novelist and baker by night. I like to write what I read - fantasy, romantic fantasy, gothic fiction, historical fiction, mystery, paranormal, horror, and weird fiction. In nonfiction, my research interests include Spiritualism, the history of the North American Indian, and issues of race, class, and gender in the West as well as the gothic/weird/occult traditions from around the globe in all cultural outlets (literature, film, folklore, etc.)
When I'm not writing or reading or teaching, I'm either playing a video game, or a board game, or watching a horror movie, making croissants, or adding some new weird creepy cool thing to my art collection. I love to travel and learn new languages, and... oh! Have fun with my adoring hubby and kids, of course.
