Unleashed Fury (BloodRunes: Book 1)
During the time of the Massacre the Dark King reigned, declaring
himself a god and securing his leadership with fear and blood-magic.
Overthrown in a bloody revolt and the knowledge of the forbidden arts
lost in the book burnings of the ensuing chaos, Gelendan has risen above
its gruesome history. Now, hundreds of years later, its dark past
forgotten, Layna is a simple maid.
But as mysterious events begin to unfold, she comes to realize that nothing is ever as simple as it seems.
She finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of deception, romance, espionage, and secret societies that soon has her life spiraling wildly out of control. Whilst fleeing the fury of her mistress - whose rage is fueled by Layna's budding relationship with the woman's former consort - and attempting to evade detection by the priests who want to control her new-found magical talent, Layna's problems are further compounded when she discovers a strange marking on her neck. A mark that is growing darker by the day. Who or what has marked her, and for what purpose she doesn't know. But it soon becomes apparent that whatever it is, it's after her...
...and it's gaining.

Leoht (BloodRunes: Book 3)
With Nuko woken, a foe from their past out to murder them, and the King on the verge of war, it seems as though the situation can't get any more serious. But as Layna and Gryffon are drawn deeper into the complexities of their dilemma, they can't ignore the fact that it is indeed even more perilous than they thought...and they are inescapably entwined within it.
The Order's far-reaching influence is exposed
and Layna and Gryffon are horrified to realize just how involved in the
world they really are. And, that they are playing a very dangerous
game. So much so that another player must reveal itself, one who is
almost too fantastical to be believed but whose intervention has become
necessary with the extent of the grave situation. The Order is playing
with fire, and soon it could be the whole world that gets burned.
