In Scepter of Salvation, Princess Talamaya’s sole job is to marry, when she’d love to go on some worthy adventures like her twin brother. And in the next story, Lady Mexia wants to be the first school-trained mage, but women are not allowed.
Lady Kersta has her story next. But in the meantime, the ladies do go on adventures, facing dangers they never knew existed, learn they have powers as they come of age, and well, now I’m giving away an ebook copy of one of the books to one commenter!
The Magic of Inherian: Scepter of Salvation, Book 1
Princess Talamaya turned 18 in the human kingdom of Damar, just like her twin brother. Only when she comes of age, she must wed the king’s choice. When her brother comes of age, he’s allowed to sit on the council. But everything changes when a wizard pits beast and man against each other in Inherian–all because of the loss of the Scepter of Salvation and she must return it to their kingdom.
Princess Talamaya and her friends, Lady Kersta and Lady Mexia, must retrieve the Scepter of Salvation when her brother is poisoned.Visions plague Talamaya of a world beyond her own, of a destiny she has to fulfill.
But the barbarian king is also after the scepter, and the black-hearted wizard who is trying to gain control will do anything to keep them from retrieving it.
She must free a knight from his madness.
Help a female dwarf escape from the dwarven mines.
Aid an Amazon fighting the Dark Elves.
Rescue even the barbarian king.
Save a crusty old dwarf from the wolves of Elan Pass.
And outwit the dark wizard once more.
Above all else, she must always take the path of righteousness.
The Magic of Inherian: The Mage of Monrovia, Book 2
An apprentice of the mage they had destroyed earlier, now threatens Inherian once again. But when Mexia arrives at Langdon to become school trained, she learns the school will not permit a woman to attend. But she must destroy the mage’s apprentice, and she cannot do so without the training. She must use the magic she has learned to discover a way to defeat the apprentice before it is too late.
Mexia has already done much more than most school- trained mages when she and her companions had gone in search of the scepter of salvation. But now one of the apprentices of the evil wizard they had destroyed, has stolen his spell book and plans to take up where he had left off, and she has to try and stop him.
Mexia believes the only way for her to defeat the mage is to become school trained like he was with the eventual goal of becoming a high wizard–the first of her kind in Inherian. But the current headmaster denies her entrance because she’s a woman. Though if she can get the former headmaster’s recommendation, she may attend.
And that’s the beginning of the trouble.
First, there’s the wizard.
Then, the immovable headmaster.
And then, the circle of misfortunes.
It all goes downhill from there…
Have you ever applied for a job or tried to do something that others didn’t feel you should do–play games–like Rudolph the Reindeer, or whatever because you didn’t fit whatever they believed should be the criteria?
When I was applying for jobs after earning an MBA and had been an Army officer, I applied at a university where the good old boys were shocked that the Army officer was not a man. That happened more than once to me, even while on active duty, which was the basis for having written these stories. Anyone can do any job if they have the proper skills and determination. 🙂
