    Tredan and Lanith are Enchanters who live in a small town of Isor and run magical shop. Their lives seem to be pretty ordinary until one day Tredan receives an unexpected visit from Church Enforcer who reminds him about the life he left behind years ago.

    Lita Burke introduces her readers to a new world of Enchanters, Earth magic and various kinds of Charms.

    “Wrath, Prequel to Tredan’s Bane” is a lovely, imaginative short story that leaves the reader wanting more and reaching for the “Tredan’s Bane” novel to be immersed in this wonderful fantasy word.

    I would recommend the story to anyone who loves fantasy to fuel your imagination with a new, undiscovered world of fantasy.

    I love a good bit of magic in a Fantasy novel, and that's the trick: making it GOOD. Lita Burke has accomplished this in setting up a world where magic works by rules that make sense and the hero isn't always the most powerful magician.

    Wrath is the Prequel to Tredan's Bane, which I've just started reading. It looks very promising and I'm looking forward to continuing the story. Most importantly, I want to know what happens now that I've seen how the Prequel ties in with what I've read so far. Intriguing and original in many points.

    And there are dragonettes, you can't go wrong with dragonettes!

    Recommended - solid writing

    I stepped out of usual reading pattern of murder mysteries and into Fantasy. The writing was crisp and easy to follow. Looking forward to Trendan's next step.

    Wrath, Prequel to Tredan's Bane

    While I'm not an avid reader and the bain of many an English teacher, I do know that you can tell a good read when it immediately pulls you into the story and you find yourself half way through it before you realize what’s happened. This is a fast paced, entertaining and magical world. Well done!

    Highly Recommend this original fantasy read

    Wrath creates a recipe for disaster for the Enchanters, one ingredient at a time, if a secret journal containing magic spells is located and falls into the wrong hands. It brings the reader to a fantasy world of spells and enchantments where doors are locked by protective charms and marriage rings carry an essence of spells that identify its partners.

    One of the main characters, Tredan, is overcome by a magical charm spell shipped to his store in a box! The charm has been wrapped with velvet and tied with silk cord. Both of which sound beautiful and elegant and make you want more. This compulsion charm would bewitch Tredan, and try to force him to surrender his secret journal filled with new and powerful magic spells.

    Wrath has a mysterious, magic filled, creative and intriguing storyline. I found myself immediately drawn to the relationships between the characters and wanting to escape into this fantasy world. The air quickly thickens as Tredan’s Bane unfolds. Wrath is a fantasy inspiring both originality and creative plot.

    Wrath, Prequel to Tredan's Bane is a fantasy short story written by Lita Burke. Tredan is a former Enchanter who runs a magical charms shop with his wife, Lanith. He has just received a new supply of charms, along with a warning from the Merchants' Guild that one charm reeks of Church magical essence, something that, as a Magic and Merchant guild member, Tredan can't sell. As Tredan unwraps what he believes to be a Pleasure Charm, he's dismayed to find an Enforcer's Compulsion Charm in his hands. Its message is dire: give up the forbidden journal Tredan wrote when he was an Enchanter. Tredan knows a visit from the Enforcer is due any minute now and feverishly tries to figure out a way to warn his wife of their problem and tell her not to return to the shop. His Divine had enspelled Tredan to forbid him revealing anything about that journal, so Lanith is unaware of its existence and of the danger they are in. 

    Lita Burke's short story is a beautifully crafted and exciting magical fantasy. I was amazed by how quickly I was drawn into the story. Burke brings a magical world to life with a deft and economic use of words and imagery that is really quite remarkable. It felt like I was watching Tredan carefully unwrapping the charms and fighting for his life against the Enforcer. Wrath, Prequel to Tredan's Bane, is an excellent stand-alone short story, but it has cast quite a spell on this reader, and I'm planning on reading Tredan's Bane to find out what happens next.
