It's no wonder that Peri should possess some of the magical talent that her mother, the High Lady Kayli, is known for.
However, the young and impetuous Peri is determined to prove that her swordsmanship, not her magic, is her true calling.
But when she single-handedly rescues a prisoner from a Sarkond warrior's camp, she finds herself the liberator of a dreaded Sarkond heretic.
Now they must depend on each other in order to survive. And face the prophecy they are destined to fulfill -- together...
Kayli, daughter of the High Lord of Bregond, is torn from her magical studies in the Temple of Inner Flame to make an arranged marriage with Randon, Heir to the throne of Agrond, to bring the two warring countries together.
But Randon's charming brother Terralt contests Randon's claim to the throne of Agrond, and attempts on Kayli's life make her question all she has been taught, and whether she can trust Terralt, Randon -- or even herself.
Neve has spent her life in the shelter of the Crystal Keep, developing her talent for magic and preparing to inherit from her father the Guardianship of this mysterious world.
With this post comes the remarkable magic of the Nexus. But control of the Nexus is an awesome and dangerous responsibility, and to prove that she is capable of manipulating its formidable energies, Neve must journey through the outside world to the home of the Keep's creator.
Along the way, she will meet a handsome young sailor whose love and guidance are essential to her survival.
And, in this brutal foreign land, she must confront the dark side of the Nexus ... to claim the power that is her birthright.
Everyone knew the dark legend of the Crystal Keep...
Of its endless hallways and infinite doors. Of the all-knowing Oracle hidden within its walls. And of the all-powerful Guardian who challenged those who dared to enter.
No one knew for sure what was truth and what was rumor, except that few people went there. And even fewer returned.
But Dara knew it was her only hope.
So begins a strange and mysterious journey of discovery, a young woman's search for her own special magic—and her own self. Behind every door awaits new worlds of possibility. And deep within every heart lies the greatest secret of all: that strength and courage have a magic all their own.
She's a master thief as elusive as her name whose dagger is as sharp as her eyes and wits. Where there's a rich merchant to rob, good food and wine to be had, or a lusty fellow to kiss ... there's Shadow.
What do the Guild of Thieves, the deadliest assassin in Allanmere, a long-vanished mage, a treacherous swamp, and a gem missing from a temple have in common? Shadow, of course. When Shadow is accused of a theft of guild-wrecking proportions, she forms an unlikely alliance with the strange immortal creature known only as Blade to find out who has framed her and the Guild of Thieves for the theft--and why.
When Shadow has to recover a stolen jewel from the wizard Baloran, her journey is as perilous as her destination. For only Blade can guide Shadow to the sorcerer's lair ... and Blade is an assassin who takes a life as easily as she takes a breath.
Shadow's score with Baloran can end only in destruction. But in the final battle, will Blade be at Shadow's side--or in her way?
Shadow, a light-hearted (and light-fingered) elven thief, returns to her homeland after several centuries' absence only to find that a great human trade city has grown up next to the forest in which she was born.
Now the elves and the humans maintain an uneasy alliance, but when Shadow steals a magical bracelet, she finds herself caught in the middle of a plot that may tear the city--and the alliance--apart forever. (140 Pages)
