You have begun your Challenge. Be fleet of mind, gentle of foot, and strong of heart. Blessings of the oracles be upon you.

So begins the Challenge that every royal in Astarious has had to complete to be able to be declared an heir to the throne.
It must be begun before their twenty-first birthday and they can’t be told of prior Challenges.

Piallen has waited impatiently through her two older sister’s Challenges. Anticipating the day that she would not only face her own, but be able to hear their stories. She prefers training with sword and bow out in the woods over anything that takes place indoors. Her excitement at her impending Challenge is based more on being able to prove her skills worthy, than any real love of wanting to be declared heir.

She has a feeling that being an heir will involve a lot more indoor time whether she wants it or not.

A shocking betrayal and attack from within the palace itself throw all of the careful preparations for her Challenge off and reveals unknown secrets about Piallen and the mysterious magic leak she’s had since she was a child.

Fighting off the attackers, she finds herself pulled into a strange land by a powerful and attractive sword wielding mage—but it wasn’t the work of the oracles.

After a rousing sword fight, she, the mage, and her grigeen companion, find themselves flung into another kingdom. One where former allies turned enemies are mounting a massive attack.

To destroy Astarious.

The conclusion of the Magic & Sorcery trilogy!

About the Author

Marie is a multi-award winning fantasy and science fiction writer with a serious reading addiction. If she wasn't writing about all the people in her head, she'd be lurking about coffee shops annoying total strangers with her stories. So really, writing is a way of saving the masses.

Her first fantasy series, The Lost Ancients, starts with The Glass Gargoyle. The rest of the series is complete at six books total. A continuing series follows another adventure and started with The Seeker's Chest.

A space opera trilogy, The Asarlai Wars, launched with Warrior Wench, and continued with the Victorious Dead. The final book, Defiant Ruin, is available now. More adventures in a second trilogy start with Traitor's Folly!

A steampunk adventure, A Curious Invasion, followed by The Mayhem of Mermaids, will conclude in 2023 with An Intrigue of Pharaohs.

Like portal epic fantasy? The Essence of Chaos is the first book in the books of the Cuari series. The third book, Destruction of Chaos, releases in 2023.

Lighter romantic fantasy can be found with the completed Magic & Sorcery Chronicles. Three royal sisters face challenges and romance on their way to the throne.

When not saving the masses from coffee shop shenanigans, Marie likes to visit the UK and keeps hoping someone will give her a nice summer home in the Forest of Dean or in northern Wales.

Marie is also a member of SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association) and NINC (Novelists, INC).
