“If the true bloodline does not rule Ter Chadain, the Protector
shall appear and reclaim the throne for the rightful Queen.”  

King Stanton reads the prophecy every day since he murdered the
royal family, all of them.  Or so he thought.  The three year old
twins escaped that night thirteen years ago, but his men are
closing in to finish the job before they can turn sixteen and
activate the magic spell making his worst fears a reality.  A
Protector in Ter Chadain and a royal heir with claims to the throne
he now held.  

Logan and Teah Lassain witness the violent murder of their family
and narrowly escape.  They now find themselves not only thrust into
the revolution, but the keys to the reunification of Ter Chadain.  

Bestowed with the powers and spirits of past Protectors, Logan must
learn to control both before their memories destroy him.  Wrenched
with anger and the desire for revenge on the man responsible for
decimating his life, King Stanton, Logan must keep to the path of
greater good and gather support for the revolution from the dukes
and duchesses of Ter Chadain.    

Teah is trained by the Zele Magus, an order of sorceresses, to
control and accept her newly discovered magical powers enabling her
to take the throne.  Struggling, she must also ask the
question…what happens when there are two Protectors of Ter Chadain?
Two Protectors are not foretold in the prophecies….

King Englewood is dead. Logan, the Protector of Ter Chadain, has cleared the way
for his sister, Teah, to claim the throne as the rightful Queen of Ter Chadain and
cast out the invading Caltorian forces.

But Teah cannot claim that throne. She is captive on a slave ship sailing to Caltoria
with other magical slaves to have their fates determined by the evil Empress of
Caltoria. With Logan in pursuit to free her, Teah must keep her identity as the
rightful Queen of Ter Chadain hidden until she can escape.

As a slave, Teah's magical powers are withheld from her by an ancient gemstone
placed on her forehead called a "soul stone". The clear gem darkens in color once
placed on a magical's forehead indicating the strength of their magic. Teah's stone
darkens to a deep black marking her as the strongest magical in Caltoria since her
ancestor, the first Queen of Ter Chadain. This draws unwanted attention and puts
her in great peril.

Logan and his small band of rescuers must hurry. Their quest is difficult. The cost
is high. New allies are found. Old friends are lost...forever. Risking death at ever
turn, they rush to rescue Teah. But the only way Logan can save Teah and keep
Ter Chadain from falling under Caltorian rule is by not only risking death, but by
risking something even more precious...his freedom.

world. It is forbidden; an infraction punishable by death.

As Britt relishes her new cancer-free life and senior year of high school,
her very existence threatens Allister’s place in this world. Allister struggles
to keep Britt a secret from the Eternal Council and out of the hands of the
only Eternal who already knows the truth: the one who stole her guardian
