New fantasy ebooks at the Amazon Kindle store

After years of missing out on all the action in the Amazon Kindle ebook store, all four fantasy novels of The Rys Chronicles are now listed. I've read that Amazon has the largest market share of the ebook market, and I'm glad to present my fantasy ebooks to that large audience that shops primarily at Amazon.

The Kindle versions of my fantasy ebooks work and look fine. My mom tested them out on her Kindle.

Union of Renegades The Rys Chronicles begin in Union of Renegades with this character-rich adventure that follows Dreibrand Veta, an ambitious warrior who seeks to rebuild his noble family’s fortune. He joins the powerful rys spellcaster Shan, whose race possesses magical powers and whose Queen Onja rules many human kingdoms as their Goddess. The wicked tyranny of Onja disgusts Shan and he desires to seize the rys throne from her.
The third renegade is Miranda. After escaping from her abusive slave master, she becomes a crucial player in Shan’s bid for power. To weaken Onja, Shan raises rebellion among her human subjects and gathers allies to his cause. Shan demonstrates his magic in battle and convinces his followers that the fearsome rys Queen can be overthrown. For over two thousand years Onja has ruled, but now, not even fear of her ability to enslave souls will stop her ambitious enemies.

The Goddess Queen The Rys Chronicles continue in the second book The Goddess Queen as Shan’s rebellion grows. Queen Onja sends her Kezanada agents to hunt Shan with enchanted weapons, and she also begins to teach another rys in the ways of battle magic to aid her in the coming war. Dreibrand Veta, now Shan’s general, works hard to prepare their armies for the invasion of the rys homeland. Miranda dedicates herself to Shan and his rebellion even when it means breaking the strict patriarchal traditions of the larger culture. Once the armies begin to march, everyone must endure the many horrors of war. Tempers fray and ambitions flare as the costs of attacking Onja mount. But Shan stomachs his guilt over inspiring such conflict and finally challenges Onja in a duel of magic. To defend her throne, Onja summons her magic secrets that have been buried since ancient times.

Judgment Rising In the third installment of The Rys Chronicles, Dreibrand Veta discovers that he will have to win his kingdom all over again. The empty Wilderness that he claimed after the war with Onja was once occupied by the high civilization of Nufal where lived humans and magical tabre. A sweeping genocide crushed Nufal and now thousands of years later the avengers of the tabre rise to take their overdue retribution.

The rys King Shan joins Dreibrand to face the powerful tabre who have emerged from their enchanted hibernation. Colossal battles of magic and bravery result in stalemate and each side withdraws to raise an army for the final battle that will bring judgment for an ancient holocaust.


The Borderlands of Power Nufal is invaded and human warriors fight alongside their rys and tabre champions in a grueling clash of muscle and magic. Grim struggles smash strategy into chaos, and loyalties degenerate into desperate choices for survival. Tempet and Alloi, driven by their desire for revenge upon the rys, push King Shan deep into the violent reservoir of his power.

Still reeling in the aftermath of battle, Dreibrand Veta scrambles to assert his authority upon the remaining forces of the Atrophane Empire if he is to defend his land and overturn the censure that disgraces his name. Rebellion on the imperial frontier complicates these goals as does Shan's sudden unpredictability as an ally. Miranda braves the snows of the Rysamand Mountains to demand that Shan pay his debt to her by helping Dreibrand. Only ambition keeps despair at bay as forces vie for dominance in the borderlands of power.
