Amber doesn’t feel she belongs. She doesn’t belong in the enchanted Elven stronghold of Oraciel, and she certainly doesn’t belong in the human world outside.
Driven to find the truth, she embarks on a quest to discover her true heritage… a quest that will shift the balance of power in the mightiest empire the world has ever known. Despite a stoic self-reliance, as she travels Amber teams up with exiled spy Ryan de Brun, Devedran nobleman and merchant extraordinaire Drew Blackthorn, and taciturn elven tracker Talar.
When despotic Emperor Chichoni learns a half-elf orphan and her motley band of companions pose a possible threat to his rule it sparks a massive imperial manhunt that spans the length and breadth of Bantara.
Empire is a tale of heroes and tyrants, assassins and spies that unfolds against a backdrop of civil unrest and political intrigue. It follows one woman’s epic quest to unearth her true identity, unlikely alliances and a chain of events that will change the fate of the mighty Empire of Bantara forever.
“Empire is fantasy written on a massive scale… yet draws the reader into the personal quest of the heroine, and the hopes and fears that form this complex character…”L. Bambrey, OBC
