About the Book

Two paths, one choice.
Honourable death which dooms the kingdoms, or dishonourable life which saves them?

Grieving, confused, and angry after the death of his bonded Sorcerer, Trerin must stay alive long enough to fulfil a prophecy. If he fails to save Princess Rykatu Crystu, the powerful Sorceress will be magically converted to serve their enemies’ god and will lead his armies to victory against her own people.

The fate of the Kingdoms now rests on the formerly carefree shapeshifter. Dishonoured while he remains alive, part of him longs for death, and there are many enemies ahead who are eager to oblige.

How can he find the strength to choose life and duty, when honour – and his Second Oath – demands death?

About the Author
Joan Lightning

I'm a British fifty-something Christian, archaeologist, martial arts practitioner (Kung fu and Taiji), long-distance runner (2 marathons and 6 half-marathons so far. 2 more halfs planned for 2018), and amateur photographer. I also knit, crochet, naalbind, and spin.

I was introduced to science fiction and fantasy at a very young age by my best friend's dad, who had boxes and boxes of science fiction books dating to the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
In those boxes I met Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Anne McCaffrey, Zenna Henderson, and many more, and I learned to love the smell of a printed volume.

I started telling short stories to my nephews when they were children and one day joined an online writing group where I accepted a challenge to write a short story about a young sorceress from a land of sorcerers. The Guardians of Reyth serial grew out of that story. Four and a half years later I finished the first draft which is c1,225,000 words long.
Since then I've been editing it, chopping it into smaller pieces, and writing a few new stories in the same world.
Watch this space because there is still a lot of the story to come.
