Three years ago, rogue council member Celeana Maar massacred all the students at the Witches Academy and left Ellemar Vancel for dead.
Now, still haunted by that day, Ellemar seeks to track Celeana down and settle the score. But her mission is nearly halted before it even begins because the Council of Witches prohibits members from killing, even if justified.
Given the gravity of Celeana's crime, the Council bends this rule and approves Ellemar's mission. Searching for Celeana takes Ellemar to a royal ship, a Forgotten Forest, and a secret island. Along the journey, she begins hearing stories that suggest Celeana’s horrendous act may actually have been justified. Is Ellemar chasing the wrong enemy? Has the Council been harboring secrets from its members?
Getting the answers right is critical. The peace of the entire kingdom is at stake.
About The Author
Originally born in Australia but moved to Switzerland when I was 5. After 14 years completing school and an apprenticeship as a fitter and turner, I moved back to Australia. Eventually I moved to Hong Kong for 3 years and got married. My wife and I moved to Australia. We currently live in Perth.
While I enjoy a good story in fantasy, I was tired on reading about the typical tropes of magic such as fire, water or lightning. I want to take a different take with mine that does not involve these types of magic and typical creatures such dwarfs and elves.
