About the Book

How can a mountain grow from nothing?

While the Xiantu quietly invade the port city of Bein, the Guardians are distracted by the snow mountain that has appeared near the Perrestian city of Angate. The deadly creatures within it will kill everyone in the town if not destroyed.

The mountain is not the only danger; a deadly conspiracy has taken root in Angate, threatening Crystu and Tam. Before they can save the city, they must answer one question: what is the connection between the snow-ants, the ‘helpful’ Group of Light with their bizarre beliefs, and a naïve young woman whose guardian is the Duke of the city?

Meanwhile, Seldar and Trerin, on their way to Bein, begin to realise that something is very wrong in the Kingdom of Light…

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.
