The fourth book in my six part series Darkness Rising has hit the virtual shelves (print next month). It's on Myrddin Publishing and sports an awesome new cover by Ceri Clark.
Darkness Rising: Loss follows Emelia and her companions as they travel across Pyrios. Two demons are in pursuit, but Emelia's fragile mind looks like it'll give out long before the demons get them.
