THE CIRCLE OF SOULS
BOOK ONE

THE RUBY HOUSE

The Ruby House is the FIRST book in The Circle of Souls.

The story creates a rich mythology, interweaving an epic tale of a fantasy world seen through the eyes of ten year-old Maia, while she grows up within a world of scheming royal courts and the looming threat of civil war.

Lady Maia Swanne of House Emerald is happy to have returned from the far-off Provinces with her father, Duke Ferdinand, but not everything is as it seems with the Kingdom of Heldrassë. Soon, she will be thrown into a world of magic and corruption, where the Great Houses plot and vie for power, and where a Book of Souls suggests that Maia will be at the heart of events that will change the course of history.

The Ruby House is scheduled for release soon.

BOOK TWO

THE AWAKENING BLADE

The Awakening Blade is the sequel story to The Ruby House.

Maia and Erebus have survived their adventures during their first year at the palace school.

They hope that events may return to normal, now that their loathsome tutor Madame Gourgonne is no longer teaching them.

But, there is still much unfinished business to attend to, and rumours of unrest in the kingdom of Heldrassë are beginning to reach even this high up on Kings' Hill.

The Ruby House is scheduled for release soon.

FRAGMENTS FROM THE BOOK OF SOULS

THE STAR OF TWO SUNS

The first 'Fragment from the Book of Souls'.

A Tale of Erebus & Maia.

“This is a tale told within a tale; and the story of how the fair lady Maia and the dark lord Erebus came to haunt its telling. Much has been told of their sojourn within the realms of the Earth, but there are stories also of the Beginnings, and these are told within the Kingdom of Heaven...”

“A haunting story of magic & fable, a timeless Fairy-Tale...”

THE WITCH'S HEART

The second 'Fragment from the Book of Souls' short story series.

A Tale of Erebus & Maia.

Erebus & Maia are due to be married, a Prince & Princess, loved throughout the land.
But there is one within the kingdom who is jealous of their love, a terrible Witch, who will stop at nothing until she has stolen their power for her own...

“A beautiful & compelling tale for children & adults alike.”

A CRUEL ANGEL

The third 'Fragment from the Book of Souls'.

A Tale of Erebus & Maia.

“There was one who entered the Kingdom of Heaven who was God’s finest achievement. She was fashioned from the most delicate light, the rarest jewels He could find, and was the most beloved of His children. She was the fairest angel amongst angels, and she was named Maia...”

“An exquisite modern fairy-tale of a love that spans lifetimes.”

The Riddled Gaithe of Undersane

The fourth 'Fragment from the Book of Souls'.

The Riddled Gaithe of Undersane is a curious nonsense poem that tells the tale of a young man's search for knowing.

Extract:

On blackened stumps of sallow night
the tavern door aflung,
and cursing out the rain,
the shadow figure thuddered down
beside the pensing boy alone.

Looks away,
the boy, yet strange,
 the shadow figure draws his eye,
and then a purse is flung on table top
and shadow rasps his name:
"Heard Ye of the Fabled Gaithe of UnderSane?"

Not pausing for the boy's surprise
he gloams:
"No petty liturgy, The Gaithe,
no man yet lives to tell its truth.
The Gaithe, the secret no-one dares to find,
but brave enough be you."
