Holland C. Kirbo is the author of the Amazon Best-Seller, A FLAME IN THE NIGHT, the first book in her young adult Christian epic fantasy series, THE LEGENDS OF AEWYR, and the memoir TRIPLE TREASURES: Our Journey from Infertility through the First Year with Triplets.
Holland is a Double Dawg, having received both her undergraduate business degree and her law degree from the University of Georgia, and she's convinced Athens, GA is the most fabulous place this side of heaven. After graduating from law school, she clerked for a federal district judge, then worked for over a decade as in-house corporate defense counsel for a publicly traded company. A few years ago, she retired from her successful legal career to focus on her family and her writing.
She's known to her family and friends as Holly, to her husband as Holls, and to her children as Mama, Mom, Moooooooooooooooom, and, on occasion, Mother (imagine exasperated eye roll and classic huff of testy adolescent). Today, she spends most of her time raising her thirteen-year-old triplets (two boys and a girl) and writing fiction. After all, words build worlds in your mind! And she strives to bear witness of the Gospel and for Christ in her writing. She's forever hauling her very active teens all over creation. They keep her on her toes and on the go, but she wouldn't have it any other way. She lives in Southwest Georgia with her husband, kiddoes, three dogs, and three cats (she's all about symmetry).
Lakyn has foiled Xarkuhl's attempt to kidnap the young Catalan prince. Now, she and all of Ceredwyn wait with bated breath, knowing the right hand of Maal, the dark god of Hael, prepares his assault on the continent of Perravia.
Lakyn and Reuel draw closer, but the waiting game wears on her. Tensions swell, and Lakyn chafes at being caged, but Reuel and Nolan fear the lengths to which Xarkuhl will go to neutralize her, and they refuse to allow her outside the city of Kaelin without an immortal guard. While she grapples for independence in a world gone mad, Lakyn discovers things are not always what they seem. Deceptions mount, and her core beliefs are shattered when she finds a secret religious text hidden in the chapel of Kaelin Castle. If its teachings are correct, Maal and The Three, the gods worshipped by Aewyr, aren't gods at all but archons of Elyon, The Most High, and Aewyr has been led horribly astray. Lakyn reels from her discovery and struggles to reconcile fact from fabrication. She's rocked further when Reuel suggests she's the Bright One of prophecy—the savior who will save them all.
As Lakyn discovers more about her true identity, she meets resistance from the one she trusts most. When Maal's forces make their move, truth becomes stranger than fiction, enemies become allies, and Lakyn's world will never be the same.
