Original Trade Paperback. Breakout fantasy epic with strong magic world-building, engaging characters and wondrous adventure. A young woman forges herself into a warrior to avenge her murdered family members and confront a corrupt, evil knighthood that has taken over her native land.

A breakout new fantasy epic filled with strong world-building, engaging characters, and wondrous adventure.

Kyri: a highborn young woman whose life is shattered by the murder of her kin. But even as Kyri flees her beloved land Evanwyl, she knows that she is her family’s only hope for justice, and Evanwyl's only chance to escape a growing shadow of corruption and destruction.

Now Kyri must venture across Zarathan, a world on the brink of a long foretold Chaos War. It is a struggle that will rend the foundations of existence and may usher in a long age of darkness –that is, if Kyri and her companions do not succeed in holding back the tide of evil that is rising. Those companions include valiant swordsman Tobimar Silverun, Prince of Skysand, exiled on the turn of a card and a prophecy, who is now seeking his people’s lost homeland; and Poplock Duckweed, an unlikely hero whose diminutive size is as much weapon as it is a weakness.

Kyri’s quest is as simple as it is profound: find a legendary, ancient weapon smith, take up the sword and armor of a new order of warrior-defenders, and bring the power of justice and vengeance to the evil and corruption that has darkened her native land.

About Phoenix Rising:
“A winner! Phoenix Rising gripped me and drew me in. Kyri, Tobimar, and Poplock became friends, people I care for and want to know more about and spend more time with. Great characters, and thrilling adventure. I want more!”—Ed Greenwood, best-selling author of the Forgotten Realms series

“[E]xciting adventure, scary monsters, strange gods, and wondrous magic.”—Lawrence Watt-Evans

"I became very involved with Kyri's quest for vengeance and justice." -P.C. Hodgell, author of the best-selling Kencyrath Series.

I found this story hard to put down once I started it,a classic fight between good and evil,where every so many centuries a war for the rule of the world breaks out, and evil wants this one bad.The characters hold your attention with there many powers and the friend ships they make.I highly recommend this book.
