Alison, being the ex-cop that she is, is writing about a subject that she knows intimately and it shows in this book and it’s sequel, “Credo’s Legacy”. I find it refreshing that this author, coming from a police background–a very serious and sometimes deadly occupation–has such a keen sense of humor…..it’s definitely an added plus to her story telling.

To Detective Alexandra Wolfe, the human bone sticking out of the potty in the Scotty wasn’t any big deal. She needed to check out a very old bone in a very old camper…what could go wrong? She had some digging to do. She could feel it in her bones.

I’d like to introduce you to Nathaniel Gauthier, a young mage who begins life a little awkwardly, but is destined for great things.

Nathaniel Gauthier, a young, scholastic mage, battles a wraith to protect his king.

He loses, and he dies.

One thousand years later, Prince Amelon and his sorceress princess, Laucwen, discover ancient texts on the art of raising the dead. Their kingdom languishes under brutal occupying forces. Their only hope lies in resurrecting the long dead Jancor, the greatest battle mage ever to walk the shores of Merigor.

Laucwen sends the magical call for Jancor and accidentally summons Nathaniel instead.

He studied transformational magic at the collegium and skipped most of the classes on warfare and battle tactics in favor of translating ancient texts.

He lost his one and only magical duel.

Now Amelon believes him to be a powerful battle mage and looks to him to fight the greatest magical battle Merigor has ever faced.

If you love heroes that come in all shapes and sizes, follow along with Nathaniel as he learns that being a hero means so much more than simply being the biggest and baddest Mage of Merigor.
