The son of a trapper, raised by elves, befriended by animals, entrusted with magic, Barr was but a boy on a journey that had taken many, many lifetimes. Seeking to avenge his father’s death, he would cross into Lomintor, home to shapelings of all manner and size. Little did he know, Revyn, the God of Change, had plans of his own, plans set in motion long before Barr was ever born. It was what Revgn had be waiting for, the time when one of the new races bore a child on its final lesson, a soul on the verge of enlightenment. It was what Markus had awaited as well, enduring centuries of enchanted slumber so that he might one day rule all of Taellos … in Revgn’s name. The Emblems would no longer be hidden, and revenants would stop at nothing to find them. It had finally come, the journey’s end …

THE HEALER’S LEGACY
by Sharon Skinner
Running from an abusive relationship with a powerful Warlord, Kira flees toward the land of her mother’s people.
She is harried by mercenaries and finally forced to fight, not only for her freedom, but for the lives of those she comes to love.
Kira visits her dying mentor, the healer Heresta, who, with her death, offers Kira a chance to escape from Toril, the local hero turned Warlord, and Kira’s abusive mate. Pursued by Toril’s men, Kira rides west, escaping toward the sea with her two animal companions, a miniature wyvern named Vaith and a large hunting cat, Kelmir, with whom she has the ability to communicate telepathically.
“Definitely recommend you check out this book if you are in adventure and supernatural fantasy.”- Amazon Reviewer
“It made me feel as if I was one of Kira’s Companions along side her during this journey. Throughout the book, I was constantly comparing characters to people I knew.”- Goodreads Reviewer
