If you enjoy sword & sorcery tales, you’ve come to the right page! I hope you enjoy meeting Kaitlyn as much as I enjoyed writing her stories.
Kaitlyn, a young apprentice witch, dreams of saving her people from a dangerous dark wizard. Knowing herself to be untrained, she nevertheless summons a powerful magical relic, expecting her master to accept her offering and become the hero of their land. Unfortunately, she’s forgotten to consider the price the magic will exact.
It’s been ten years since the Firestone turned Kaitlyn into a sorceress to be reckoned with. Since that fateful day, she’s been in seclusion, mastering herself as well as the artifact. But now her mentor and friend, Aelfric, has died and King Lorien has called her to court to take her place as the King’s Magician. Is she ready? Can she maintain control of the Firestone while surrounded by courtiers? Only time will tell.
