The Sorcerer's Legacy is a tale rich in adventure and mystery, yet grounded in real-life struggles around belonging, identity, power, love, and courage. Like many such tales, at its core it's a hope of light winning over darkness. Woven into the story, you'll find deep spiritual wisdom rooted in ancient traditions from around the world. And hidden between the lines, you may find bits and pieces of yourself...
The tale's hero is a young girl named Hanaria, born the second of three daughters to a royal family in the lands known as Paradesia. It's a beautiful place surrounded by mountains to the north, woods to the east and south, and sands that border the Azurite Sea to the west. A small community, it's a trade hub that sees regular activity nonetheless.
Though Hanaria is an ordinary girl by most standards, she is, in fact, quite extraordinary when it comes to her character. This makes life difficult for her and her family. She feels she doesn't fit in to the royal life, and after years of failing to live up to her parents' expectations, she longs to be free.
One day through a series of random events, she encounters a boy in the woods — an Outlander from the mountain clans — who both threatens and saves her life. She quickly finds herself in a peculiar and dangerous situation. She doesn't yet know it, but she and this boy will encounter each other again, and he will come to play a key role in her future along with a variety of other intriguing characters.
Her chance meeting with this boy innocently kicks off a string of events that awakens an ancient and tangled web of secrets. The signs are clear to the elders. Something old and dangerous is rising. Yet it has been ignored for so many generations that most don't see it for what it truly is — a threat to everything they love.
It's not long before the people's very way of life begins to change, impacted by the ripples of this darkness rising. Only, it is so subtle that it's much easier for them to believe the lies that are spun to cover the truth than it is for them to face the truth itself. And so it is that lies are upheld and the truth falters under their weight, turning the people against themselves without their ever knowing it.
This is how the darkness cheats. This is how freedom is threatened. This is how power corrupts. And this is how a war begins...

If you haven't picked up this new, exciting series yet, it's time to catch the wave. An easy, enjoyable read, it's an attention-grabbing romantic adventure that you won't want to put down. Get caught up on Books 1 and 2 to be ready when Book 3 drops on April 8th.
The legend of The Sorcerer's Legacy begins with Book 1 — HANARIA and the Sorcerer's Son. Hanaria seems innocent enough, but something strange is brewing and those closest to her begin to notice it. The mystery begins to unravel when an ancient sign comes to pass, leaving the elders charged with her care worried, and the sorcerer's son emboldened.
In Book 2 — HANARIA and the Sorcerer's Call, we meet a maturing Hanaria. As she hits her mid teens, it becomes more and more clear that there is something unique about her, though most take it for a rebellious spirit. When she follows a mysterious call into the woods and goes missing, everyone fears for her safety. None could have known that something old and dark was unfolding in the wake of her disappearance. Intent on her safe return, her father unwittingly puts her fate in the hands of the one man who has the power to destroy her.
The saga of The Sorcerer's Legacy shifts into high gear in Book 3 — HANARIA and the Sorcerer's Prophecy when a mysterious stranger deposits Hanaria's lifeless body at the gates of her home at High Star Manor in critical condition, setting off a string of gossip that makes her out to be the people's enemy. Cast under a veil of darkness and imprisoned at the hands of her father's scheming apothecary, a bold rescue is planned by a brave few who are loyal to the ancient legend of the prophecy. But spies are everywhere, putting them all in grave danger. Is there no one to shine the light of truth into the rising darkness?
Hey - did you find the "easter eggs" in Books 1 and 2? If you haven't, you might want to revisit them. So...what exactly are you looking for?
In case you don't know it already, an "easter egg" is a nod to a favorite influencer on a work of art. In my case, the work of art is fiction.
How do you go about finding an easter egg? In this series, you're looking for two things: an object in a chapter image, and a quote in the text.
First, find an object in a chapter image that you recognize from one of my three favorite series, either Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter. It might be obvious or it might be more subtle. True fans of these older series will recognize it right away. The rest of you may have to work for it.
This object points you to the older series that the quote part of the easter egg is from, and tells you it's in that chapter. So when you spot the object, look for a familiar quote from the series it goes with as you read the chapter. Again, true fans of these older series will recognize them right away. The rest of you...well, you know.
You may find only one image-quote easter egg duo in a book, or you may find more.
The fun is in the hunt. Happy easter egg hunting!
Exciting news! Cover art for Book 3 is complete and this exciting follow up will be available in early April, 2022. This is just a "tease."

Her daughter is so delighted to get this book that it makes me shiver all over with glee...! I guess this feeling is akin to watching your child graduate from college.
