HEART OF SIN
(A Stand-alone Elemental Monarchs Companion Novel)
Not all sins are forgivable
At five years old, Sinyara was taken by the Order, trained to become a Protector—a magical assassin.
She has always known what she is. Evil at her core, corrupted by the magic within. Her only shot at redemption is to rid the world of others like her; those with magic in their veins.
In the war to destroy magic, Sin must choose her loyalties. Her choice could cause the destruction of the magical community—or the desolation of her Order, her home and, with it, her entire identity.
Can she learn to trust that she holds more in her heart than darkness? Or does magic really corrupt all?

When there is no place to hide — run!
Everine Vargens is haunted by visions of the past. Except, it’s not the grief of losing her sister that causes the visions. It’s her newborn niece, Ayva.
Magical beings are hunted, and Everine knows it’s only a matter of time before the wrong people will discover the infant. Terrified for Ayva’s life, Everine leaves her home–and runs straight into Earthling and bounty hunter, Birken.
He knows what it means to be strange, to be distrusted. To be hunted. But he has agendas of his own. Will his secrets help protect the baby or will Everine face more danger than she can handle?
Together they bring the baby on a wild journey hoping to find a haven, if there are any left. Will they find one and survive, or will Ayva–and her magic–fall into the wrong hands?
This is Part One in the Elemental Monarchs saga.
War is on the horizon—All because of her.
Because of her, war is coming. And she may be the only one who can stop it.
When Ayva comes of age, her powers manifest in ways that scare her. She fears because magic is considered dangerous in the world outside their mountain. Even her mother wants Ayva to hide who she is. But she’s driven to know why she can see the memories of others, and to discover what else she can do.
During Avya’s search for answers, she encounters new friends with powers of their own. Yet even while they join forces, the Heartless King is plotting his attack.
Archenon, known as the Heartless King, discovers the resurgence of Elemental powers–thought to be long gone from the world since his ascension to the Elemental High Throne. They pose a threat to his power, and he will do anything to stop them.
One young woman holds the key to the war between good and evil. Can the revival of old magic end a tyrant, or will the Heartless King find and destroy the alliance before it destroys him?
This is Part Two in the Elemental Monarchs saga.
War is imminent
War is imminent, but balance must be restored….those were the words of Mother Nature herself.
While Ayva sails the seas with her companions, searching for allies, her mother has only one goal–to reunite with her daughter. The shaman’s ominous predictions causes Everine to fear that Ayva is about to be corrupted by her own magic. Everine ventures into the earth with a group of Earthlings. But the dark tunnels are a maze, and there are others hiding in the shadows.
Creos is still on the war path. After the end of one battle, he is hungry for another–and he too is headed for the battle that will tip the scales of fate–one way or the other. He will gladly execute anyone who might be foolish enough to stand in his way, and Everine has crossed his path one too many times already.
If Everine is to reunite with Ayva, she will need to face her demons head on, and she will have to live with the severe consequences of her choices as those around her get caught in the crossfire.
Can Everine survive the journey through darkness and get to her daughter in time? The Heartless King himself is after Ayva, and it’s only a matter of time before destinies collide.
This is Part Three in the Elemental Monarchs saga.
A KINGDOM SCORCHED
What is dead in Aradria, doesn’t always stay dead.
The news of a dragon in Lycobris travels fast, and Kenith feels the pull of the dragon more than anyone. They share the same affinity for fire, though something about the connection is wrong—broken. Struggling to find a balance in his relationship with Niila, he must also find a way to become the king his people needs. First though, he has to befriend a mad dragon, and take back his throne.
While Kenith struggles to come to terms with the path Mother Nature chose for him, there are other forces at play. Allegiances are shifting and friends turn to enemies. Some search for power or freedom, yet others seek revenge.
Old secrets are about to come to light as new secrets are kept in the dark. While myth turns to reality, Kenith returns to his homeland with a bounty on his head. He needs allies—and fast. Because something else that should have stayed locked away is about to break out of captivity.
This is Part Four of the Elemental Monarchs saga.
