The Asphodel Cycle

Despite her grievous injuries, Tamsen doesn’t have the luxury of waiting until she regains her strength. Although she is aware that she is jeopardizing her future and the fate of her people, she has no choice but to continue her battle against the apostate gods. She must find a way to wield the most powerful magic ever crafted while still unable to walk—and somehow keep the five realms safe from a war between the gods.

But the dream realm is sundered, and the elder gods’ power is growing.  Tamsen knows the odds of her surviving this conflict are slim. Her determination to do what is right is leading her down a path of darkness—not toward death, but a fate that is far worse.  She can no longer run from her fate, but she must find some way to save the fates of everyone else—mortal and immortal alike.

Can Tamsen find the strength to defeat the apostate gods? And if she somehow manages to do that, can she possibly survive it?  Tamsen's final battle is on hand, and even if she must be carried into the field, she is determined to spend every last ounce of magic, every last moment of her strength to protect the world she loves...for if she fails, she will know a fate worse than death itself.

Tamsen is still weak and emotionally shattered when her daughter Tamarisk is abducted by her uncle, Spesialle. In order to rescue them, Tamsen and Brial must find the way to Godspring, the dream realm where once the dead god Phobetor ruled alongside his brothers. Godspring is a land of illusion, a realm where dreams and nightmares both are crafted--and when Tamsen's power meets the world of illusion the resulting explosion turns everything to chaos.

With all five realms now in conflict, the situation is deteriorating fast. The mortal realm cannot survive a full-out war between the gods. For Tamsen, a succession of personal tragedies is beginning to take its toll, amplified by the destruction of her strength and the desperation of her task. On the Plains of the Underworld, the gods give her a nearly impossible task: keep an apostate god from returning to the city of Hell and reclaiming his immortality.

Can she find another ally to bolster her quest? Or will she fail into the enemy’s trap alone? Either way, she must find a way to save everything she loves dear, even if it takes her back to the arena of the gods.

When Tamsen wakes up in an unfamiliar place with no idea of who she is, something warns her to be cautious. So she plays a game with the man who claims to be her husband, and pays attention to what is going on around her. The physician her husband calls to tend to her after her accident makes her uncomfortable with his strange allure and odd style of speech. Nothing around her seems as it should be.

While Tamsen tries to regain her lost memory, Brial Ka'breona is tearing across the continent in an enraged hunt for his lost wife and Queen.  But now the gods are forbidden to walk the mortal realm, and not even the Virgin Huntress can help them. In order for Tamsen and Brial to come together again, terrible sacrifices must be made--by mortals and immortals both. When a strange new ally presents itself, Tamsen must determine if the sacrifice she must make is ultimately worth the cost. 

But sometimes, it doesn't matter what the price is. When the continued existence of the mortal realms is at stake, there may not be a price too high to pay.

I wrote a story in the Orange & White Report about AJ Cucksey, the Children Miracle's Network Champion for the state of Tennessee . AJ is six years old, and pilocyctic astrocytoma, a form of pediatric cancer, has left him with seven inoperable brain tumors. Aj has inspired thousands of people, not only for his courage and joyful nature in the face of adversity, but because he gives so much back to others. This campaign was designed by AJ and his parents to raise awareness about pilocyctic astrocytoma and funds for ETCH. Please take a moment to click the banner and check it out!
