In my book Riding the Storm, Jeorek is a Stormrider -- a shifter who can take flight, but only if he finds the right sorcerer to give him the power to transform. When he finally finds a sorcerer with a resonant aura, he's disappointed to discover the young man is a mute, crippled slave with now discernible power. Dare is far more than he appears, though, and the two must learn to trust each other if they want to survive their enemies.

In Vanquished, the Ulanesh—vicious soldiers from the underrealm—are invading the forest and destroying everything in their path. A sorceress, an army captain, and a tree-talker are all brought together by impending war. They go on a long journey, discovering new lands and cultures as they work to become allies and defeat the enemy.

In The Great Road, Queen Adhira’s city is attacked, and she’s captured by the winged sorcerer, Surtur Takkar. Her twin brother, Arnon, must set out on the Great Road to reach her, and he's accompanied by a Seer prince, a stable boy with more bravery than brawn, and a reluctant hero who is the only one who can defeat the sorcerer. Loyalty is put to the test as they leave their homes to save the ones they love.

Books I Recommend:

Fantasies by J.R.R. Tolkien, including The Hobbit, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, and The Silmarillion.

The Sharing Knife by Lois McMaster Bujold – wonderful fantasy world and characters.

Knight of a Trillion Stars by Dara Joy – great settings, but I object to how the hero treats the heroine in several scenes.

Flames of Auriel by Erin R. Bedford – fun fantasy, though it had proofreading issues.

Dragon Blue: A Lie That’s True by Macy Babineux

Beloved Crusader by Vijaya Schartz – Fae historical fantasy

The Royal Wizard
by Alianne Donnelly - a fun fantasy with a female wizard
