“The headwoman had brought out her best mugs, blue-glazed treasures from the artisans in Duscapi. No doubt they’d been purchased at great cost to this tiny village and were brought out only to honor guests. Guilt pricked Jaena. The headwoman might not be so welcoming if she knew Jaena would be taking a child away from Bless-us-goddess.” — Taylenor
I’m happy to announce that my new stand-alone fantasy novel, Taylenor, is now available on Amazon in print and Kindle editions!
This is the story of Jaena, a young priest who travels to isolated villages, blessing births and singing the souls of the departed to her goddess. In one village she finds Wiel, a teenager with the rare mage talent known as taylen.
Jaena takes Wiel to the city to try to save his life. Too late, she discovers that she has delivered Wiel into the hands of the Mage Defender, who rules by stealing the magic — and the lives — of children.
