His ambitions blind him to the trivial diversions of mere female company until he must block a treaty marriage between two powerful tribes.

She is a mysterious outcast from the magical rys race that is oppressed by the tabre of Nufal. Onja has commanded Amar to dominate the humans of Gyhwen while she plots to overthrow her tabre masters. To support her cause, she seduces Dacian, a prodigy among rys who hopes to win equality for their race nonviolently. While a rys rebellion secretly brews, the human minions of the tabre battle pillaging savages. The young estate lord Cruce Chenomet joins the fight. Violent trials and sensual surprises break the trail on his journey to manhood. Packed with primitive energy and complex motivations, the intertwining stories and rising stakes of this fantasy world will indulge your cravings for intrigue, bravery, passion, and freedom.

Meet the Author

I've always written stories. When I was a kid I wrote stories and drew pictures for them and stapled them together to make books. My mother recently showed me one of these little books apparently based on my older brother's Dungeons & Dragons gaming.
When I was 14 I wrote a sci fi novel. When I was 15 I wrote a fantasy novel. I set them aside and never looked at them again. Then I grew up and had some adventures and became disillusioned about most everything except my dream of being a novelist. In 1997 at the age of 25 I started writing again. Now it's 2012 and I am working on my eighth novel. No publisher was ever interested in me. I stopped beating my head on that door in 2004. But rejection from people who would never care about my dream only emboldened me. I began self publishing my fantasy fiction in 2005. That was before being an indie author was cool. Despite relentless obscurity and general disrespect, I was always encouraged by a steady trickle of sales and the occasional kind comment from a reader.
To be honest, being a novelist is always a struggle. I get criticized in public and don't get called by any movie producers, but also every day someone somewhere buys my novels and that amazes me. I'm humbled by my readers. I will always do my best to craft stories worthy of them. I love the stories I write, and sometimes other people like them too. I'm having a good dream.

Rys Rising: Book I 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 20 reviews.

I have to say at first I was concerned since the Fantasy genre is not what I have been reading lately. I was not disappointed! Tracy has created an amazing fantasy world full of complex and interesting characters. The Book has multiple heroes, in my opinion, who encounter their individual challenges and rises in power. There are magical creatures who are struggling to be accepted and respected among others who hold their existences in higher esteem. Humans, unaware of the other species, are recruited to fight in the struggle among races.  I was hooked on this wonderfully written book that has magnificent plots and twists of interlocking story lines. You can vividly imagine the various realms introduced throughout the book! Tracy has flawlessly submerged the reader into a fantasy saga that will keep you enthralled with the action of each character’s role in the overall story.  I’m normally disappointed with really short books that introduce you, seduce you, and then leave you hanging. This book does not do that to the reader at all. Over a 1,000 plus pages, on my iPad, gives the reader a book that is exciting and thought provokingly satisfying. I stayed up late and read the book as often as I could, because I had to know what would happen next!  I enjoyed Rys Rising so much that I purchased the others in the series. I have to quell my ever growing curiosity of this enchanted fantasy world!

This was an epic, descriptive and race war story about survival. The author wrote the surroundings so clear that I think that I could draw a picture. I felt like I was inside the book with the surroundings around me as well. I also got involved with the complex yet realistic characters. My favorite part was when the humans teamed up with the Rys. I also liked the complexity of the story. There were so many sub plots. However I found myself wondering about each one. This is a no noise in the background pay attention kind of book. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.

This book surprised me totally with its many plot threads making me care for each character without knowing the direction of their development. Explaining in great detail their history and life motivation.

Told from many points of reference, the characters of this epic are well conceived, there are too many to list them all and each characters is dynamic and worthy of a better review than I can give here. Death and brutality change a young man from a careless leader to a warlord. Opression, prejiduce and fear hide truths that when out in the open might lead to rebellion. This is more than one story, it truly is an epic tale and worth the time it takes to read it, over 1000 pages on my nook. I'm in love with the writers style and attention to detail, this a pleasure, almost an indulgence. Read it, love it, read it again!!!

I was introduced to the series by a free book- that was for the rys chronicals- i read this book as a prequel and it fascinates me for the rest of the story. In case you missed it there is a corollary to our world and society. Dosturbing to think about. Loved the book. Love the series! Meridith
