Bernadette Rowley is a lover of epic fantasy who is a veterinarian by day and an author by night. She is currently published in the genre of fantasy/paranormal romance with six books, all set in her fantasy world of Thorius.

“I can see these settings so vibrantly in my mind and hope my readers can too.”

I loved this book as I enjoyed all those leading up to it. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to befall Matt and India next. Can't go any further owing to spoilers but it's a wicked tale!
