TempleGods 3D-Kindle

 

“Bone has crafted a world that is both colorful and rich, and will certainly provide a backdrop for stories as long as she chooses to write them.” — USA Today Bestselling Author Sarah M. Cradit, Praise for Rise of the Temple Gods: Heir to Kale

“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins

***

Two heirs. One throne. Journey to the Kalian kingdoms and follow twin princesses as their struggle for the crown divides not only their hearts, but the kingdom they strive to rule.

Trained in the arts of combat, swordplay, and the ancient traditions of the Gods, Mariana and Ameria have been raised separately by rival temples. But their complicated relationship is strained even further when the king declares only one of them can succeed him as queen. Now competing for the Kalian throne—and the heart of Ameria’s second-in-command, Kyle—the twins’ destinies are shepherded down a road of betrayal and treachery at every turn, each stalked by creatures charged by the Gods themselves to ensure neither strays from their destined path.

As primeval powers awaken, the two sisters must learn the truth behind an ancient prophecy and search for a way to change their inevitable fate as a voice growls through the darkness: Beware the Twins of Kale.

This boxset contains the first three books in the Rise of the Temple Gods series: Heir to Kale, Heir to Koloso, and Heir to the Defendants. The fourth book, Heir to the Prophecy, is coming 2018.

Silver Rose – Book Release!

Silver Rose, Book V in the bestselling Black Rose Guard series, now available!

Cover Design by: Skyla Dawn Cameron

Featuring map illustrated by: Raven Quinn

 

SilverRose-promo1

History called it the shimmering court. A palace of glass upon the water surrounded by silver roses. For a millennia it stood as a symbol of power and stability within the immortal realms. 

In a single night, it washed away in a sea of blood.

Six hundred years ago, Mara, the immortal Captain of the Black Rose Guard, led her knights to their greatest victory: the annihilation of the Muir Court. For avenging a fallen princess, she was hailed a hero. Yet for Mara, the mirror reflected only a killer.

Haunted by the slaughter carried out in the name of honor and duty, Mara hoped she had fought her last battle. But when knights of the Arum Court murdered her sub-captain, hope shattered and the blood roses began to bloom.

Determined to avenge her fallen comrade and save the young woman for whom the long-dormant roses have awakened, Mara dons her ancient Arius blade, and prepares to once again lead her men into a fight from which they may never return.

All the while, her enemies prepare to exploit her greatest weakness: the life of her only love, Edward. Deep in the heart of the Arum Court, King Mathew hoards secrets of his own as a voice whispers through the shadows: Beware the Silver Rose.

Shadow of the Rose – Book Release!

Shadow of the Rose

Book IV in the bestselling Black Rose Guard dark fantasy series.

Featuring map by artist Raven Quinn! 

ShadowoftheRose-Kindle

“Exceptional and peerless! Black Rose is a brilliant page-turner that I would recommend to any avid reader of dark fantasy and romance.” – Becket, Bestselling author of The Blood Vivicanti

If you stay with the Lorcan Guard, you will honor your original vow, it is true. But you shall remain forever a shadow of the rose…

For as long as she could remember, Sarah had wanted to be a knight. One fated evening, a man with dark eyes appeared at her mother’s modest inn, and told her a story of love, loss, loyalty, honor, and a life of which Sarah had only dreamed.

Devastated when the man is condemned to the dungeons by her own father, Sarah was told she would never see him again. She safeguarded his story, and secrets, resigned to them forever being the treasures of her imagination. More than twenty years later, he reappears, offering Sarah an opportunity beyond her wildest dreams.

A half-mortal, illegitimate child of a lesser court, Sarah’s struggle only begins with leaving all she has known. Her hope for a better future, amid the prejudice of those who look down upon her tainted blood, is maintained by a blossoming love, and being personally trained by the court’s captains.

An unexpected turn of events gives Sarah an opportunity to change her fate—a position of leadership in the Black Rose Guard. But to accept will mean abandoning both the man she has come to love, and her vow to Captain Edward.

Loyalty and desire clash in one woman’s quest to find her place in the immortal guard.

Rise of the Temple Gods: Heir to the Defendants

Book III

heirtothedefendants-kindle

Cover Design by: Skyla Dawn Cameron

“Bone has crafted a world that is both colorful and rich, and will certainly provide a backdrop for stories as long as she chooses to write them.”

— USA Today Bestselling Author Sarah M. Cradit, Praise for Rise of the Temple Gods: Heir to Kale

“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins

Two heirs. One throne. Return to the land of Kale for the third installment in the Rise of the Temple Gods series and follow twin princesses Mariana and Ameria as their struggle for the crown divides not only their hearts, but the kingdom they strive to rule.

Named by her grandfather as the future Lady of Serenitas, Princess Ameria distinguishes herself as a ruler while, in secret, delving further into her family’s shadowed past. What is the meaning behind the wraith’s prophecy and how does it connect to the identity of her father’s killer?

Seated on the throne as acting queen, Mariana struggles to navigate royal court politics while grappling with the possibility the man she considered a second father, Master Leo, may not have been the hero she once believed. To discover the truth, Mariana sends her trusted captain and love, Kyle, to meet with her sister, Princess Ameria.

Kyle is not without secrets of his own. Each night he endures the same dream. Two men, trapped in eternal, mortal combat. And behind their clash of blades, a voice growling in the darkness: Beware the twins of Kale.

Heir to Kale Audiobook

I am excited to announce that Heir to Kale, the first novel in the Rise of the Temple Gods fantasy series, is now available in audiobook format narrated by the talented Cassandra Nuss!

 

HeirtoKale-2 (2)

Cover by: Skyla Dawn Cameron

“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins

In the land of Kale there lies a delicate balance between the powerful Temples and the rulers from an ancient, royal bloodline. The Temples are ruled through combat, determined by a series of tournaments. Of these tournament champions, sixty are chosen to become Defendants, an elite team charged with protecting the realm from all enemies. Selection to this team is considered the highest of honours and leadership of the team is decided only once every thirteen years.

Princesses Mariana and Ameria, twin daughters of two such champions, are taken as children to separate, yet equally powerful Temples. Through years of rigorous training both are educated in the arts of combat, swordplay, and the ancient traditions of the Temple Gods. Both eventually obtain the rank of Kalian Champions with the expectation of one day serving upon the coveted Defendant Team.

Then, not long after their seventeenth birthday, the childless King declares that one of the sisters must succeed him as the future Queen. As the race for the throne begins, the sister’s long standing rivalry intensifies, leading both upon a dangerous path that threatens not only their lives, but the fate of the very kingdom.

Unbeknownst to the twins, this treacherous path to the throne is the elaborate collaboration of an ancient prophecy and two creatures charged by the Gods themselves ensure it comes to pass. As primeval powers awaken, the two sisters must struggle to learn the truth behind the prophesy and search for a way to change their inevitable fate.
