The Shadow of Theron: Age of Shadows, Book One

The powers of old are fading. A new Age is dawning.

Holy relics are all that remain of Theron’s sacred legend.

Now those relics, the enchanted weapons forged by the Three-Faced Goddess to help Theron defeat the wicked Sorcerer Argoss, are disappearing.

Lysandro 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 artifacts created by the Goddess or her nemesis.

The arrival of the beautiful newcomer Seraphine, with secrets of her own, only escalate their rivalry.

As the feud between Lysandro and Marek throws Lighura into chaos, a pair of priestesses seeks to recover the relics and return them to safekeeping. But the stones warn that Argoss is returning, and they must race to retrieve Theron’s most powerful weapon.

While they risk their lives for a legend, only one thing is certain. The three temples to the Goddess have been keeping secrets: not just from the faithful, but from each other.

Defying Gravity

This isn’t a book with lots of violence, war or death in it. There’s enough of that in real life, and if you’re into that kind of thing, then there’s plenty of other books out there for you.

This is a story about the stuff that we don’t have enough of in real life. Love, tolerance, bravery and leadership. And its a story about humanity’s first attempt to live in space, and how two young women save us all from our own stupidity.

Oh, it also features zero gravity, inter-racial, lesbian lovemaking.
(Because there isn’t enough of that in real life either)
