Steam Mountain – Rak Shoma Book 2
Maevens Ash and Orm’s continued search for Ash’s parents bring them to the country of Stavmo, a civilization whose power is based on steam.
Steam cars, whirlybirds, and small appliances, even guns, are all powered by steam… but at a cost. A huge factory has toxic smoke billowing into the air, and only the rich are able to escape the smell by living on the opposite side of town. Class is based on your hair color, and if your hair isn’t red like the dictator who runs the country, you vanish into the mines or are thrown into the volcano.
But the volcano holds even greater secrets. And possibly a link to Ash’s family.
The magical pair make friends with the rebels and try to help them fight for their rights, but in doing so they get separated and place themselves in danger.
The Queen’s Ring
To save her husband and son, Alivet must agree to abandon her family and become the queen of her husband’s brother.
Unable to save her family, Alivet makes one last stand to thwart the King’s plans for the future.
The Sixth Key
Kidnapped, taken to another planet – how much worse can Riley’s life get?
The kidnapper is her boyfriend Jothur and Sacral is his home planet. The castle inhabitants are psychic, mainly telepaths, and they are at odds with the Mutes in the forest. The psychics’ plan is to discover how Riley blocks her thoughts. This will help them completely eradicate the Mutes who are a mixture of free telepaths and non-telepaths.
Riley seeks help from the Mutes and meets Tynan, their leader. She hopes he will help her escape the tests the telepaths want to do. Instead she discovers the magic of Sacral is dying due to an imposter being on the throne.
Riley and Tynan work together to discover the real king and place him on the throne. Part of the plan relies on Riley returning to the castle to delve for more information. Will she survive or will her mind be torn apart by the tests?
