On this page I’m going to try to keep track of my planned projects. I will note that these are the projects I have planned, it’s always possible that another project will come out of nowhere and seize control of my imagination.
- Crisis of Faith, a story set in the aftermath of the Ancient Dreams trilogy. (this has been partially displaced by the trilogy Mantles of Power.
- Mantles of Power, starting with Heaven’s Fallen, this will be a trilogy.
- To be decided. This could be further books in Lilith’s Shadow (Born a Queen), could be Sisters of Radiance, and also could be one of two other stories at the moment, Ashes of Time or Broken Chains. We’ll see.
Descriptions & Expectation Management:
Ashes of Time – The story begins at the end, with the death of a demon lord at the hands of the heroine, yet there is one thing that is strange, and that is that the demon lord allowed herself to be killed. Only then does the story unfold, of where it began, and what end it was moving toward. To tell the story of what could cause even a demon lord to sacrifice themselves.
Broken Chains – What happens when the princess isn’t saved by the hero in time? In this case, she’s turned into a demon. You can find the current short story behind the link above.
Mantles of Power – Set in another portion of the world of Through the Fire, almost another sub-universe, there are versions of mortals that look like angels and demons, who possess their own versions of the heavens, mortal world, and hells. Led by those who bear the mantles of power that make them living gods, these factions have warred for millennia. Yet some dare hope for peace. In Heaven’s Fallen, an angel is betrayed and rescued by a demon, and a romance begins to bloom, even as sinister plots hide in the light of the heavens.
Sisters of Radiance – In this story the last remaining people who follow light escape their dying universe to another, to the same world as Through the Fire is set in. The main character is an elf named Noctis, a new knight from that realm, but she arrives alone and with her faith in herself shattered, in the middle of a forbidden zone of the Derran Empire, ruled by a species that some believe is descended of demons. Too trusting of others due to them not emanating the corruption of darkness, Noctis is enslaved for her presence, but ends up being purchased by Lady Anar.
The other ‘main character’ of the series, Lady Anar has the ‘gift’ of perfect foresight. If she uses her gift, which only rarely activates on its own, she knows whether an action will lead to a desired outcome. Taxing in the extreme, this gift has led to tragedy several times through her life, and her one desire is to find a true love for herself. When she meets Noctis, she knows that by purchasing her, she will eventually find her true love. Whether that is Noctis or not remains to be seen.
However, despite each of their efforts, things are not as they seem in the Empire. Many plots are concealed by shadows, and evils are stirring as well. No character in this story is completely safe, and Noctis will take the fore (and yes, will regain her freedom) as the story progresses.
