Lodestone Tales

In the years that came before the ancient days of the North-lands, a brilliant inventor fabricated the lodestones – powerful artifacts that concentrate magical force.

And while men and women walk the earth but a short while, the lodestones persist through centuries, even millennia. When they fall into the hands of mortals, history changes.

Follow the lodestones down through the ages as adventure follows adventure, and ordinary folk rise to meet extraordinary challenges.

(Although the Lodestone Tales form a rough history, each story stands alone. You need not read them in order.)

 

Skies of Navarys
LODESTONE I

When the king’s geomancer announces that a tidal wave threatens Navarys – the Atlantis of the North-lands – every citizen on the island springs to action. Amidst the uproar, the aeromancer Palujon steals unique and magical lodestones.

Mago, son of the lodestones’ creator, vows to retrieve his father’s precious artifacts. But Mago’s friend Liliyah questions Palujon’s motives.

Why would a man of his stature break the law? Is he truly a dastard? Life and death hang on her answers.

Forged by trolls and radiating magic, it presents grave risk to any who approach it. Will Paitra survive his curiosity?

Gefnen – herald to Koschey the Deathless – hunts life. When the piercing scent of youth tingles his senses, Gefnen focuses his chase. The prey – a boy – lacks guardians strong enough to best a troll. But other seekers tilt the chances in this game. Spirit of storm, poignant memories, and something more ancient than memory or wind shape looming tumult. Gefnen hunts victory, but a darker victory hunts him.

A NOTE TO MY READERS

Just as readers continue to argue about the proper order for reading C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia – the order they were written? or their chronology within the history of Narnia? – my readers will likely disagree about the order in which the Lodestone Tales might be best read. 😀

Their chronology within my North-lands is this:
Skies of Navarys
The Tally Master
Resonant Bronze
Rainbow’s Lodestone
Star-drake

The order in which they were written:
Rainbow’s Lodestone
Star-drake
Resonant Bronze
Skies of Navarys
The Tally Master

My recommendation? Pick whichever story appeals to you most and read that one!

I have six more books planned for the saga of the lodestones! I’ll email you when they release, if you’ve signed up for my newsletter. 😀
