Darin, a mercenary officer, lives in Talaria, a kingdom surrounded by a magic-resistant spell.

This is not a review - I don't review my own books. This is a conversation I had with the novel's protagonist, a mercenary officer Darin Barclay.

His promotion to an officer, when he was only nineteen, was unusually quick. I asked him: “How did it happen? It’s not in the book.” Below is his reply.

I really, really enjoyed this book. Olga did a bang up job of creating a fantasy world and dragging me along on Darin's adventures! This book kept you moving, as Darin is a busy man, working for the Eagles, a mercenary group. Each adventure takes you through this world that was seemingly effortless for Olga to create. Darin has the right amount of snark and humor. I did not find one spot of the story that lagged at all. The story pulls you in to the pages, the characters are well fleshed out. ...more

I'm a fantasy writer. I live in Vancouver, Canada, and have two wonderful children: a son and a daughter. Both have already flown the nest, so instead of children I now collect monkeys. I have over 300 monkey figurines in my collection.

I’ve been making up stories with magic and swords since I was very young but I only started writing professionally in the 21st century. Before that, I was a comput
