Ferrasium – the first exciting episode of The Windflowers Trilogy. For centuries, guided by the Destiny's Oracle, the Bera-Bera tribes have guarded the secret of the windflowers. The High Priest Seraphis covets Pharaoh's throne and his minions scour the desert sands, seeking two ancient artefacts of unrivalled power. Kalli’s fight for survival begins when the Priesthood uncovers her talent for forbidden magic. Thrust into their killing arena she’s forced to fight or die. No one has ever escaped from the Ferrasium, but Kalli knows she must or her younger sister will face the same fate. How can a small band of pygmies, a tomb robber, and a magically untrained girl compete against the might of the Priesthood? Excerpt. The tiger snarled and she almost wet herself. Her grip tightened on the staff as she staggered back, wishing she was somewhere else, and not naked, armed with nothing more threatening than a toothpick. Golden Scarab – the second thrilling book in the Windflowers Trilogy. A year has passed since Kalli escaped from the Ferrasium, but the High Priest’s stranglehold is tightening and his tentacles are extending to encompass all of Keymett. As Pharaoh’s royal barges sail toward Wasset to celebrate the Jubilee Festival, the High Priest is poised like an arachnid in his nest, waiting to hatch his plans. Kalli must unlock the secrets of the Golden Scarab before all of Keymett falls under the High Priest’s dominion, but who can she trust? Excerpt. The High Priest kept his hood up, shrouding his features and flicked a gold coin at the shopkeeper. “I seek Moorak.” The man snatched the coin from the air faster than a lizard’s tongue catching a drowsy fly. The coin disappeared inside his robes as if he was a magician. He pointed to a doorway almost hidden in the shadows at the rear of the shop. “The last door on the left. Knock seven times.” The corridor was smothered in shadows and smelt of decay. A rat scurried away from his footsteps.
Quarta di copertina
The last door was solid and studded with iron spikes. He rapped exactly seven times, stood back and waited, drumming his fingers against his upper arm. Moments later, he heard a series of bolts being drawn and the door groaned open a crack. “Moorak?” Chains rattled and the door opened further. A hand crippled into a claw and tipped with yellow fingernails motioned him inside. Moorak secured the door behind Seraphis before shuffling to the work bench. A cauldron, blackened with soot, bubbled above the fire pit, belching green fumes. Seraphis’ eyes watered. He blinked rapidly and tried to mask his surprise. Moorak was a woman. She was fair of face, but mottled skin, pitted and burnt, sheathed both her forearms. She must have become accustomed to her customers’ reactions to her ruined arms as she glanced down and shrugged. “My art demands some sacrifice.” Moorak shooed a toad off a chair and offered the seat to her visitor. “What service do you require?” Seraphis ignored the seat and paced, tugging his earlobe. “A slow-acting poison to stop the heart, but leaves no trace.” Pyramidion - the exhilarating conclusion to The Windflowers Trilogy. The Trillican fleet is poised for invasion, but after fleeing Wasset, Kalli’s band is decimated. There’s no trace of her family, Sakhir is missing, and overnight the tribal hunters have deserted them. With Kalli’s brother, Xandar, as his willing pawn, Pharaoh’s Pretender, High Priest Seraphis, will not readily relinquish his new royal position without copious bloodshed. Kalli possesses the Golden Scarab, but the balance of power rests with whoever gains the power of the Pyramidion first. Fugitive feminators, thieves, a displaced queen, Pharaoh’s disposed heir and two banished pygmies. How do the goddesses expect her to bring down a kingdom? Perhaps having a Cat Priestess on her side will even the odds. Kalli’s epic struggle reaches a climax, but there are unforeseen consequences – Destiny hasn’t finished toying with her yet. Contain
