The Outcast Chronicles follows the fate of a tribe of dispossessed mystics. Vastly outnumbered by people without magical abilities, they are persecuted because ordinary people fear their gifts. This persecution culminates in a bloody pogrom sanctioned by the king who lays siege to the Celestial City, last bastion of the mystics. When the city falls, the mystic leader negotiates their surrender and her people are exiled from their homeland.
King Chald has laid siege to the Celestial City, home of the mystics. Scholar-warrior Tobazim went to the city seeking glory, now he’s trapped along with the rest of his people. Surrounded and outnumbered, Imoshen, leader of the mystics, accepts banishment for her kind.
Far from the siege, Ronnyn and his family live in hiding. He and his sister have grown up listening to their mother’s stories of the Celestial City. He dreams of going there one day, unaware that his family will be hunted down and executed, if they don’t leave with the rest of their people.

    Excellent series!

    As with all her books, this series is well written and unpredictable as the story unfolds. I laughed, I cried, and couldn't put it down. Immense depth to characters, filled with action, espionage, passion, unique magic, despair and most of all... hope.
    If you are familiar the works of Judith Tarr, Kate Elliott, or Melanie Rawn you will enjoy this author's works!
