Sorceress of Shadows (Book Three: Heirs of a Broken Land)
The Wall of Loss separating the lands of light and darkness has fallen…
In an attempt to save her mentor, Shirina paid a devastating price. Now infected by the darkest of powers, she is bound to a staff and cursed with limited magic.
On a quest to safeguard what remains of the Circle and fulfill its mission to protect the Land of Light, Shirina must find a way to fuse the clashing powers of light and darkness. Alone and without support, with dwindling time until her body succumbs to the inevitable darkness, Shirina must seek redemption and re-forge old alliances.
Cassara Edoline and Avarielle Grayloft are her only hope of success, but the princess distrusts her and the warrior wants her dead. As the final battle for their land erupts and the three struggle with their failing powers, they must again join forces to reunite their broken land or watch their world crumble and be swept away in tides of death.
About the Author:
Marie was born in Montreal to a family with nomadic tendencies. As a result her childhood was spent roaming from town to town in Eastern Ontario. In 1996 she roamed further west in the province, attending Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. Along with earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Religion and Culture with a minor in Archaeology (fields she has never once come close to working in, although they do come in handy for plot development), she also served two terms as President of the school’s Science Fiction and Fantasy Club, an honor that she will never live down. Not that she cares to.
When not earning a paycheck Monday to Friday or writing fantasy novels, Marie can be found engaged in the act of storytelling in any location where two or more people have gathered. She tells mostly original stories of her own creation or adaptations of fairy tales and myths. She was instrumental in forming the Kymeras, a group of storytellers, poets, and spoken word artists who perform regularly in downtown Ottawa.
She also enjoys e-cornering authors On the Edge and asking them the most ruthless of questions, such as which drink would best suit their novel.
Marie currently resides in Ottawa where her family finally settled, and she likes it a lot. She lives with numerous cats, two literary fish, and one human roommate. She believes that all foods need to be tried at least once, occasionally to her detriment. [MORE]

She must make some tough decisions regarding who she will save and who she will sacrifice. Will she reunite with Cassara and Avarielle to confront Siabala, or will she ultimately prove the Warrior right, disappoint the Princess, and betray them all?" – K.I. Gerow, Goodreads
