Shifting Isles Series

The Shifting Isles series takes place in a fantasy world of several Isles: some monarchic, some democratic, some tyrannical, and one, Agoran, blessed with a truly free society. Each book has different characters, but they are all linked in some fashion (for instance, moving from generation to generation, or from a story about a brother to a story about his sister, etc.). The series will include magic, economic issues, romance, journeys, political issues, personal discovery, and much more.

The Prisoner (Shifting Isles, Book 1)

Officer Benash dutifully follows orders, even down to the route he walks to the prison each day, striving to earn the promotion that would grant him escape from that crumbling, underground facility. Yet, as he passes a fork in the road, the desire for even one simple choice tempts him. When he finally succumbs, he crosses paths with Vorena, a woman who forces him to question everything he has ever known. Vorena’s ideas are nothing short of treasonous, and accepting them would spell Benash’s death. With time running out, Benash must now choose: cling to the security of obedience and routine, or risk his life for a kind of freedom he never thought possible.

S.P.I.R.I.T. Division (Shifting Isles, Book 2)

Hidden away in the offices of Hawkeye Insurance and Personal Defense Agency, Detective Shyth uses her gift to help track down rapists and murders before they can complete their crimes. Yet, a serial murderer continues to elude her, vanishing from every crime scene without a trace of evidence left behind: no DNA, no fingerprints, and not a single surviving victim to identify the killer. With a growing list of unsolved cases, Asenna Shyth races from vision to vision, trying to stop this mystery killer before he strikes again.

Blindsighted (Shifting Isles, Book 8)

Yet, he can’t seem to escape. Besides not wanting to simply abandon his sister, an accident severely damages his arm. If he tried to go back to the harsh life in the north, he’d never survive. What good was a hunter with useless hands? Then he meets Shysais ‘Summer’ Gael, the beautiful new neighbor, and wonders if destiny has finally caught up with him. All of Athan’s protective instincts kick in when he’s around her, but he soon learns he can’t let the tempting woman distract him from his plan to go home. Summer is…troubled. And that’s not all that’s wrong in the Gael household.

Libertas (Shifting Isles, Book 9)

Selene Vas-kelen is on the run. With a new face and a new name, she begs passage on a ship in the Libertas fleet. She can’t stay on Erostil—not after what had been done to her—nor can she go home to her family on Agoran—not after what she’d done. Short of death, a life at sea, a life of constant motion, seems the only option. Xander D’garest is determined to find Selene, but the search is risky, with the Erosti government watching his every move. After a year of searching and finding nothing but dead ends, he knows he’ll have to go abroad for answers, but getting off Erostil is easier said than done. When Selene finds Xander on her ship, her world closes in on her, and she’s left with nowhere to escape. Secrets. Lies. Magic. Collisions. A battle at sea. Prophetic dreams. Destiny just might take Selene exactly where she needs to be.
