Book One: A Necklace of Souls
Dana wishes she wasn’t a princess. She’s always being told how to behave, what to wear. The collier’s cart seems the perfect escape, only she didn’t realize she’d become so dirty, or so lost. Fortunately this boy, Will, has a sense of direction. And next to the forbidding stranger, N’tombe, he seems reassuringly normal.Book Two: A Skillful Warrior
Dana and Will must find the weapon to defeat the Emperor. But his army is close behind and the Kingdom and its Guardian have vanished. They must learn to overcome despair and to fight on, despite the darkness. For a warrior must adapt, or die.
Book Three: A Memory of Fire
Held captive in a strange city, Dana dreams of fire and flight. There is something she must find, but she does not know what it is, or why it is important. Half a world away, Will studies a new, exciting discipline. Can this new power be enough to save her? And is he prepared for what must happen next?
