The cover design for Temporal Destiny has arrived and I am really excited. I never thought that would happen, but Erica has outdone herself. The decision to go with the same basic design but alter the title and cover colour makes the series easier to follow and locate.
In Temporal Destiny we meet a completely new cast of characters. Set hundreds of years into the future we find Dorganna back up to her tricks. Only this time the task is not to create a sword but to find the 6 blades and reassemble them. Changes have occurred to their world, people have forgotten the purpose of the sword and even the location.
Tatiana, a 16 year old scullery maid, and play toy, whose destiny to find the blades, and reassemble a sword she has never heard of that is crying out for her attention. Forbidden to handle anything bigger than a paring knife, how is she going to wield a sword? Where does she find the courage to step out and fulfill her destiny? Just what is that destiny?
A Dwarf, Hornswoggles Gideaon Blackheart or simply Horny to his friends. Trained in all matters concerning the shadows. A master with blades, capable of slipping from sight at the flick of a wrist. A thief by trade, and assassin by choice, who has seen more than he cares to remember; Much too old to care, but still young enough to know better and enjoy it.
A Human healer, Varook Sakarov, the historian, cook and administrator. An adept Majik User, timid, definitely out of his element, loyal and fiercely protective. Clearly on his way to becoming his master’s replacement but with a lot left to learn. His emotions are put to the test as he cares for this band of misfits.
A Giantess Ranger, Adanac Neriad, master markswoman, deadly swords-woman, loyal follower, body guard and lover. Her tracking abilities are second to no one, her ability to move unseen or unheard mind chilling. Her constant companion, a large saber-cat at first then a cobalt wolf, always at her side.
A Forest Elf, Colonel Snooklepig McFiggins. Emissary of the House of Glacerton, Commander of his Lord’s personal guard, shape shifting Druid. An adept fighter a dire bear, stealthy tracker as a shadow cat, and someone that flies with wild abandonment as a majestic eagle.
Four unlikely travelers all brought together by a sequence of events that none could have predicted in search for one that is called The Chosen One.
Join us they learn to work together and explore the boundaries of their relationship. Watch as Tatiana grows from a scullery maid into? To answer that question you will need to read the book.
Temporal Destiny, Book II in the Continuing Saga of The Eye of Zul will be available this fall.
