Warrior of Darkness (Book Two: Heirs of a Broken Land)
The Wall of Loss separating the lands of light and darkness has been breached…
After leaving her home in pursuit of marauding Eloms, Avarielle Grayloft found allies in a grieving princess and a sorceress with a hidden agenda. As dark powers poisoned the land, the three fought their enemies and each other, until faced with a foe they could not defeat.
Betrayed and wounded, Avarielle is held captive in the fiery depths of a dangerous and deadly prison. Seeking vengeance, she escapes only to find herself trapped in the savage Land of Darkness. And, as she discovers the truth behind the Eloms, she is forced to question everything she believes in.
With her homeland on the verge of destruction, her powerful sword about to fall into the clutches of evil and the Eloms growing in strength and number, Avarielle must take the greatest gamble of all, forging an alliance with the leader of the Land of Darkness and betraying all she has ever known.
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]
