Forgotten Legacy Series
Thousands of years ago, a civilization was so torn by fear that they decided
to flee their homeland and conquer another continent. Knowing that any stray thought
of the evil they had fled from would cause the evil to follow, the leaders
ordered their mages to develop the Spell of Forgetfulness. There was, however, a
flaw in the magic. To wed a person who was not under the spell, could release
the memories of the horrors, so they ordered their armies to kill all of the
indigenous peoples of their new homeland before receiving the spell themselves.
After a time, the armies could not remember why the slaughters were necessary,
and the task was never completed.
An ancient prophecy foretold of the invasion and also told of the three
people who would rise to prepare their people to face the nameless horror when
it arrived. The Time of Calling has begun and the births of Marak, Lyra, and
Rejji, although unheralded at the time, signal a new discovery of the Forgotten
The Forgotten Legacy was completed in 2004.

lord. Recognizing his promotion as the sacrifice it is intended to be,

change the very fabric of society.
Sakova is the tale of Lyra, a young woman who survives a deadly

|Aakuta: the Dark Mage
||Island of Darkness
Aakuta: the Dark Mage Lord
Marak tries to gain support from the lords of Khadora as the Jiadin
invasion begins. Complicating the situation is the arrival of a male
mage, something unheard of in Khadora.
Just as peace between Omunga and Sakova appears to be
a certainty, an evil mage steals the body of the newly chosen Katana,
leader of the Omungan people. As the new Katana plots the destruction of
the Sakova, a strange mystical disease ravages the country producing
widespread famine. Both countries stand poised to annihilate each other,
but the Star of Sakova fears a greater threat, which is brewing unseen
across the ocean. To confront that new threat, she must preserve the
armies of her Omungan enemy. Against all odds, she embarks upon a path
towards a peaceful solution to the war, a path that could likely imperil
the very existence of her own people.
Meanwhile, two young orphans discover that they are
sisters and set out from the Sakova on an ocean voyage to discovery
their roots. What they discover is enough to terrorize both the Omungans
and the Sakovans, if the young sisters manage to escape the Island of
Darkness to tell their story.
Thousands of years ago, humans
attacked Elvangar, the land of the elves. The elves responded with a
devastating attack, which ended with the sealing of the human city of
Angragar. Sealed by the hand of Kaltara and hidden in an impenetrable
jungle, Angragar has remained dormant waiting for the prophesized Astor
to arrive and reopen the gates.
Now that the Time of Calling has arrived, Angragar has awakened, and the
elves of Elvangar prepare for a human invasion. Caught in the middle are
four elves who have escaped from the Island of Darkness. Eltor, Caldal,
Mistake, and MistyTrail tread carefully in both lands as the world
prepares for a war unlike any other in history.

The elven nation is beset by plotting from antiwar factions, while the Jiadin of Fakara threaten to abandon their defensive positions.
The world teeters on the brink of new war, a war in which there will be no surrenders, no prisoners, and no negotiations, only total annihilation. Life itself hangs in the balance as Vand's minions prepare to launch the final invasion and sow seeds of deceit and destruction in the camps of the defenders.
Massive armies are poised to invade the three main

badly outnumbered as a thousand huge warships set sail from the Island
of Darkness to exterminate all life on the mainland. Led by an ageless
mage, the forces of evil appeared assured of success.

the onslaught and preserve humanity, but can their outnumbered forces
