With his world in ruins, Kane must either run and hope monastic and royal assassins do not find him, or accept the Archbishop’s offer and embrace high treason. While the opportunity to replace his father as Arkaelyon’s king and bring bloody revenge down on his sister’s head is appealing—more than appealing, the prospect of being a pawn in a thousand year old struggle between Orthodox Goddians and Larniusian druids disturbs his atheist sensibilities, and more so when he learns the price he must pay to be Maig’s Hand. Meanwhile, Danielle’s search to find the truth of her dream and the disturbing prophecy it contains continues with her usual gusto. However, the truth she finds could cost her James’ love, destroy her parent’s reputation and rob Eden of his birthright. More still, her persistence will see the streets of Amthenium run red with blood and force her into a deadly showdown that will change her life and the lives of those she holds dearest forever.
The Illandian Spring Tournament is about to reach its crescendo. With the king’s only daughter, Danielle de Brie, and her twin brother, Kane, preparing to face each other in the tourney ring for the deciding match the citizens and nobles of Arkaelyon’s capital city are in a fever of excited speculation. Determined to free herself from the fear her twin brother has always provoked in her and to show the world that men such as Kane de Brie can be defeated, Danielle has every intension of making her brother’s title her own. But even as the two royals climb the stairs to Illandia’s famous dueling ring, Danielle has no idea that a rescind coven of druids are about to change her world forever or that the deep animosity Kane and her share for one another is fated to plunge the realm into civil war. And certainly she is ignorant of the ancient gift that dwells in her bloodline. An odd dream is the only hint she has of the dangerous manipulation that is stirring in the shadows of her father’s realm and her involvement in it. But when she makes passing mention of the dream to the Lord Protector, Father Joseph’s response and the secrets he and a priestly order protect are destined to set her on a desperate and perilous path to save her father’s realm from an unimaginable evil.
Mankind is on its knees. One last fervent prayer, one last jabbering rosary, one collective cry for forgiveness…
Imagine the uncertainty ceased and the world was faced with an indisputable, stark truth:- reduce atmospheric CO2 to pre-biblical levels within three years or the human race will be destroyed. What would we do, what could we do? Who would lead us?

Description: The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo Baggins, a comfort-loving unambitious hobbit, who surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and skill as a burglar.
Encounters with trolls, goblins, dwarves, elves and giant spiders, conversations with the dragon, Smaug, and a rather unwilling presence at the Battle of Five Armies are just some of the adventures that befall Bilbo.
Bilbo Baggins has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals of children¹s fiction. Written by Professor Tolkien for his own children, The Hobbit met with instant critical acclaim when published.
