As I am getting ready to release the second book in my trilogy, I’d like to bring you all to the world of Otera! Otera is a living planet, proud of the creatures that walk her skin, especially the two she chooses to act as her Healer and Guardian. The Healer is like a conduit, someone who keeps the planet’s energy flowing and thriving, who makes sure everything is growing and healthy and well. The Guardian protects the Healer using weapons and energy provided by Otera herself. Those chosen are given wrist cuffs printed on the skin, purple flowers and vines for the Healer, vines and thorns for the Guardian. This marks them as chosen by the planet and is the connection to the planet from where they access the energy.
In Ember of the Planet, a mysterious being known as the Pathfinder does something no one else ever has: he kills the Healer and Guardian and steals Otera’s energy for his own use. With the Pathfinder’s threat hanging over them all, and the planet slowly dying from the destruction he caused, Otera chooses a savior with a surprise: she gives the chosen one both the Healer and Guardian’s abilities.
Chosen by the planet to save them all, eighteen year old Ember Oheada finds herself in unfamiliar territory. After the disappearance of their parents when the Pathfinder took over, Ember and her sister Ashla have spent three years trying to pick up the pieces of their lives when Ember’s fate is suddenly sealed. When the Pathfinder takes her captive, Ember is sure her life is going to end. But he can’t kill her; not when the planet has thrown him the curve of two identities in one person. Wanting to know what the planet is planning, the Pathfinder sends Ember on a quest to figure out exactly who she is–and how he can safely destroy her without destroying himself.
After training her to use the gifts she’s been given, the Pathfinder sends her off with Aaron, his personal guard and second, to make sure she fulfills her mission and returns. Their journey will take them to the continent of Hoa, and will take Ember far from everything she knows. Her only choice is to rely on Aaron, until they meet some new allies who promise to help her along the way. But a run-in with some pirates looking to exact revenge on the Pathfinder themselves may end their journey before it begins.
Book two, The Wind of Chicanery, picks up where book one leaves off, as Ember, Aaron, and her new crew journey across Hoa to seek out answers from a mysterious woman. Along the way they encounter dangers such as grass serpents, the terrifying Uxu, and mist creatures born of the Pathfinder’s darkness. But the most dangerous part of it all may be the ever-deepening relationship between Aaron and Ember, a forbidden attraction that could change everything. Whatever happens, their journey will end when they return to the Pathfinder, and his identity is finally revealed. But whose face will they see when he finally removes his hood?
I hope you’ll check out Ember of the Planet! Thank you for reading my blog page, and I hope you’ll continue to follow me for updates on future books! Happy reading, everyone!
