book excerpt

The bright light hurt my eyes as we walked past the plumage of the orange grove. The sweet fragrance of the orange blossoms was almost overwhelming, but my senses welcomed the sweetness. We walked further and further into what seemed like a dense forest, passing a waterfall, with bridges over streams and koi ponds.

My eyes tried to take in as much as they could, but the beauty of what met me was not only astonishing, but overwhelming.

We stood on the edge of a rock, and stared out across a vast ocean. The water was still and calm, and very unlike the oceans I had seen as a child. No swells crashed against the rocks below, there was no howling, instead the air that surrounded us was warm and carried aromas of the sweet infusions from the orange blossoms behind us.

My eyes hurt in the bright light, but nothing could make me take my eyes of this wondrous sight. Ysoriel stood with her arms stretched out, raising them towards to the sky. Continue reading

book excerpt


Chapter 1

I felt his eyes on me before I returned the look. He knew what I was thinking, and, like always, he knew the right way to cheer me up. Best friends were like that, and Alex was, without a doubt, my knight-in-shining armour. He was like my shadow, and the last six years proved to me just how dependable he had become.

“We need sugar, and lots of it!” he practically shouted, pulling into the lot.

“But we’ll be late for school! I can not have another detention, Alex, and besides, I need to see  Marc before class,” I sighed.

“Well, Marc can wait. Strawberry glaze or chocolate sprinkles?” he asked as he got out of the car. Continue reading
