Before there was Dun Lady’s Jess…

When Ehren’s sovereign and friend was killed, Ehren, First of the King’s Guard, was far away — sent on a wild goose chase by the First Level Ministry, whose number he now believes must contain at least one traitor.

When a First Level wizard orders him to stop searching for the assassins and instead to find and neutralize the dead king’s distant family, his suspicions deepen to near certainty.
And Ehren is determined to find those exiles – if only so that he may guard them with his life.

Meet the Author

Doranna's quirkiness of spirit has led to an eclectic publishing journey since that her first award-winning novel, spanning genres over 35 novels to include mystery, SF/F, action-romance, paranormal, franchise, and a slew of essays and short stories.

Beyond that, mostly she still prefers to hang around outside her New Mexico mountain home with the animals, riding dressage on her Lipizzan and training for performance sports with the dogs. She doesn't believe so much in mastering the beast within, but in channeling its power. For good or bad has yet to be decided...

Along with the occasional original, these Smashwords editions are author presentations of favorites once found on bookstore shelves.

    Don¿t miss out on this unique and fascinating fantasy. The tortu

    Don’t miss out on this unique and fascinating fantasy. The tortured hero is ordered to kill his murdered king’s nephews, instead of finding his beloved king’s murderer. The world building is fabulous, the characters well drawn, and the plot keeps the pages turning.

    Recommended for all fantasy-loving readers

    Straight forward; not many surprising twists, just enough to keep it interesting; slight hint of romance.

    keeps you reading

    I am really enjoying this series. This one is the beginning of the story so a prequile. I read this after Dun Lady Jess cause I didn't find it until after. It's ok. Doesn't mess anything up. Might have confused me if I'd read it first.
