Australia is hosting the International Conference for Creatures of Magic and their Representatives. Standard procedure, a bit of a lark for the delegates.
Nothing ever changes.
Except this time.
Kraken abdicates. Dragon resigns.
The host country must provide Candidates to undertake the Test of the Puzzle of the Ages. If they fail, Cat becomes Overall Ruler of Magic, the Overlord, the King of all he surveys, by the Law of Singularity.
Uh-uh – no way! Cocky won’t let a bird-killer Cat lord it over the Creatures of Air. Never. Not on his sticky-beaking watch.
But it can’t be done by one – all must succeed, or all fail.
Who Will Become the Overall Ruler of Magic?
(Smashwords and Amazon )
Trapped into potential slavery, no choices. Neesa plans her escape, prepares for the day she can be free to make her own choices. But on the day of Allocation, she’s accused of cheating, of manipulating the List, and when the Master of Horse comes to claim her as his student, the Master of Gold refuses. He has other plans for her, and none of them involve her remaining alive for long.
The only chance she has is to run into the desert of death, the red desert, and chase the Master of Horse. Better a death by desert than from the cruel hands of the Master of Gold.
The rules of kingship have been lost with lack of care and the passing of time, but when the Prince retaliates against the Daughter of the Holy when she refuses to marry him and ensures she is sentenced to death by pyre for refusing him so publicly, the old ways reawaken, and the people remember and enforce the word of rule.
Landis must ensure the Daughter of the Father Holy lives. Not an easy task when she speaks up in the wrong places at the wrong times and says the wrong things to annoy the wrong people.
When the laws of the land have languished and staled into cruelty, Landis, RSM, an ordinary soldier, is given the task to ensure the Daughter of the Father Holy, brought forth to renew the Faith of the Scriptures, lives despite the sentence of Death by Pyre. Can he succeed against an arrogant Prince and an evil Queen?
