Sovereign Silk is the third book of a series set in the mythical kingdom of Tyrrhia, where courtly politics, magic, and the silk trade intersect.
The very future of Tyrrhia is endangered when assassins target Alban, the beloved king, while his wife, Queen Idala, lies on the brink of death after giving birth to quadruplets whose conception was marked by dark magic. With the king and queen’s firstborn son far too young to assume the throne should the worst befall, all five children will end up in the care of the queen’s brother, Duke Stefano, and his Romani Duchessa, Luciana, who are expecting their own fairy-blessed child.
At this uncertain time, magical and diabolical plots converge, threatening the young heirs, their guardians, and the peace and stability of the kingdom. Stefano and Luciana must walk the tightrope of political intrigues that threaten all they hold dear, and through their wits and derring-do—aided by the power and skills of the Rom—preserve their children, their peoples and their kingdom.
The second book of the dazzling Silken Magic series, set in the mythical kingdom of Tyrrhia, where courtly politics, magic, and the silk trade intersect.
Romani magic had gifted the princess Alessandra with the blessing of the Fairy folk.
So when death claimed her at the White King’s Court in Tyrrhia, not only her own clan and the man she loved, Maggiore Mandero di Montago, but the Fairy folk, too, cried out for justice and revenge. For Alessandra’s corpse had been stolen—bound by spells to entrap her soul—so her energy could be used to work dark magic. If her body wasn’t found and her soul wasn’t set free within a year, she would be transformed into a creature of evil, the goodness within her completely consumed.
Alessa is held by a master of the dark arts, a man who has a high position in the Church and who might yet call upon powerful allies for support. And even with the magic of the Rom and the Fairy folk to aid him, Mandero would be in terrible jeopardy as he sought to find and free Alessa from her earthly prison.
Yet he must try at all costs, for the stakes are far higher than the loss of one soul, no matter how beloved. If the enemy’s plans cannot be overturned, all Tyrrhia might be plunged into a religious war that could see an end to the last stronghold of peace, tolerance, and true magic….
The debut novel of the dazzling Silken Magic series, set in the mythical kingdom of Tyrrhia, where courtly politics, magic, and the silk trade intersect.
When the owl called, Luciana’s heart filled with dread.
The first time she had heard the owl call three times, she had been barely five—and her father had died. Over the years that followed, this herald of misfortune had warned of death several times, and on each occasion she had lost someone dear to her.
Now she was a grown woman with too many for whose safety she feared. Luciana’s husband, Stefano, Duca di Drago, brother to the queen of Tyrrhia, was currently away fighting in the war against the Turks. Her grandmother, the Romani Queen, was at an age when death might easily claim her companionship. And Luciana’s own beloved sister Alessandra was at the Tyrrhian court, an innocent among courtiers far too well-versed in intrigue.
But the truth would prove far more dreadful than Luciana’s worst fears. For not only was Alessa dead, but her very soul was imperiled by the way she had died. Luciana had no choice but to journey to the White King’s Court to seek out the one responsible. Yet the trail she must uncover would lead Luciana into the gravest danger.
And even the silken magic of the Rom might not prove strong enough to defeat the dark sorcery which had stolen her sister’s very spirit, and now threatened to turn this power against the royal court.
