She’s broken. She’s dangerous. She wants revenge. And she has nothing left to lose.

Elf blacksmith, Quistix, suffers a tragic loss the night a bandit invades her humble Bellaneau home in search of “The Illuminator.” After months of crushing loneliness, she seeks revenge on the man who shattered her once-contented life and answers about why this alleged Illuminator is so highly sought-after. A wounded wyl, a brilliant esteg, and child-like dragonling soon join her on her cross-country adventure, banding together in a riotous, misfit crew.

But Destoria is a dangerous place. The isle is bursting with clever hybrid creatures, floating magical cities, treacherous backstabbers, underwater creatures, infuriated inelm trees, drug-addled bandits, magic, custom weapons, snow-encrusted landscapes, and the Isle’s sadistic, dikeeka-peddling new queen: Exos Tempest.

Join Quistix, the incredibly talented half-elf, on the first of many adventures in this exciting Illuminator saga.

NOTE: Desdemona in Embers: Book Two of the Illuminator Saga was released November 17, 2023.
Call of the Wyl, a novelette, releases January 23, 2024, also set on the Isle of Destoria.
