“Love. Loss. Redemption.”
A multiple award-winning* sapphic epic fantasy.
Elysia Dayne is a renowned hero, mercenary, and monster slayer famed for killing a dragon in single combat. At least, that’s how the bards tell it. However, there was a time when she thought that dragons were beautiful.
The jaded sword master accepts a job along the unforgiving borderlands to rescue Princess Isabella Solemaine, a prisoner of goblins in the Black Fort. With meticulous planning, nothing can possibly go wrong…
It goes wrong, pitching the pair into a sprawling wilderness. Short of supplies, they have to fend for themselves and each other. Can love blossom under such harsh conditions?
Meanwhile, a group of Niemirian raiders led by their psychotic leader, Varya, are dedicated to hunting down and killing the princess and her protector.
Join Elysia as she traverses an ugly yet beautiful world, exploring the nature of the human condition. The precarious nature of her present is finely balanced, interwoven with a past timeline where a young Elysia faces dangers of a different kind.
What is she ultimately willing to sacrifice? An emotional journey fraught with action, and suspense.
“Imaginative and forward thinking…”
“…a powerful fantasy novel with a larger-than-life protagonist.”
“…crafted an emotionally and intellectually satisfying fantasy novel…”
“…took my emotions on a rollercoaster ride from start to finish.”
“…masterful battle choreography…”
“…evokes emotion in the reader…”

Elysia Dayne returns in Shadows Under the Shade, a continuation of the multiple award-winning literary epic fantasy, Under an Azure Sky.
If you love somebody enough, you will do anything to claw your way back to them…
After a traumatic duel to the death against a malevolent sword master, Elysia is left desperately clinging to life. Isabella, the princess that she was tasked to rescue, nurses her back to health in the wilderness, many miles from the safety of civilisation. With their supplies depleted, they finally reach Middlestone, resting for only a moment before beginning the final leg of their journey to the Royal Palace in Astoria.
Elysia and Isabella’s bond deepens as the expedition continues, fraught with undiscovered peril. Embroiled in danger, can Elysia save the love of her life from the shadows under the shade?
Back in time, adolescent Elysia has to adjust to life in the Grey-Lands. Struggling with sword skills at the military academy, she happens upon a Niemirian prisoner, who instructs her in the art of the butterfly blades. Soon, she becomes a force to be reckoned with… but will it be enough to combat prejudice and inequality, all the while learning the price of friendship, and making sense of her sexual awakening?

While she is introduced to King Corwen and Queen Callista in a procession at the Royal Court, she sees something that would destabilize the monarchy. Before she can act, the dominoes fall over all at once. Accused, arrested, and silenced by poison, the Azurian is left to fight for her life.
In the past timeline, a young Elysia arrives at the Borderlands after being inducted into the military. She loses one of her closest friends to a sneak attack before wreaking havoc in the heat of her maiden battle. With everyone on tenterhooks, what dangers will be awaiting them in North-wind?
