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.
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.
Honorary Detective Asenna Shyth has an inexplicable gift: She can sense extreme suffering so well that the victim’s injuries even appear on her own body as the crime is being committed. 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.
Dr. Graeden Crawford keeps secrets from everyone, including his detective parents and telepath grandfather. When he’s not working self-imposed ungodly hours at University Hospital, he sneaks about to make sure his past can’t come back to haunt him. A special patient dies, destroying his carefully constructed routine. On a snap decision, he joins a medical expedition to Tanas, hoping to escape his secrets for a while, only to wind up in a much more dangerous situation. With Tanasian soldiers standing between him and his only way home, Graeden must find a way to get off the corrupt Isle and back to the things that matter most to him in the world, even if it means having to finally face his demons.
As an orphan, Daivid Thaton only wants one thing: to find his birth parents, and ask why they abandoned him. Theft and fraud aid his search, but at a cost: His employment is tenuous, his debts are huge, and his fiancée doesn’t fully trust him. Daivid has done a lot of bad or questionable things, but there are some lines even he won’t cross. When an accident leaves Daivid paralyzed, his search must come to an end. Even worse, his condition brings two people back into his life, people he was desperately trying to avoid: Sasha Crawford, who he’d nearly killed, and Sam Shyford, who was once his best friend. Between Sam and Sasha, one holds the key to his past, while the other can give him a future, but first Daivid will have to cross a line from which there is no return.
Fresh from her third divorce, Jani Shyford feels like she’s starting over, having to leave her job in order to avoid her most recent ex-husband. Then everything turns around when she gets new employment – an exciting new project in researching medical case studies – and meets her celebrity crush, Kal Rydyn. Kal Rydyn wants to keep his past and his secrets where they belong, which doesn’t leave any room for a deep and trusting relationship. But when he meets Jani Shyford, he thinks he finally has a solution to all his problems. Unbeknownst to either of them, Kal’s secrets and Jani’s research share a connection which could destroy them both. When a deadly scandal breaks, Jani and Kal work against each other to protect their reputations, or risk losing everything they hold dear.
Samril Shyford was betrayed, just like the prophecy said he would be. After seeing his former mentor brought to justice in the Westfield virus scandal, Sam goes off to Ceynes where he’ll serve as personal mage to Emperor Phaerel. If he understands the prophecy correctly, taking that post is meant to be. Sam dives into his work, advising the emperor on various matters of state, but soon finds that all of his advice is being contradicted. Someone is working against him. When Emperor Phaerel’s bride becomes mysteriously ill, Sam races from one crisis to another, trying to save the empress and her unborn child while still speeding along the prophecy, wanting the world to finally see freedom. Along the way, he discovers that his mentor’s betrayal was not the one the prophecy meant…
