Dreams connect,
To other lives,
To latent power,
Power entices him,
He craves it, needs it,
He is a destroyer,
She is a healer,
He is gathering darkness...

Join Lowenna at the start of the Ethra Born series as she battles to oppose the gathering darkness, to protect those she loves, risking all she has become, all she believes in.

She foresees not only their deaths but a way to save them. When Theo starts sharing her dreams, Lowenna has to face the terror of her nightmares in order to find out who she really is and to discover the latent power she holds. Power which attracts the attention of Mortimer, who is a destroyer, an anathema to Lowenna, who is gathering darkness, who threatens everything she values.

Excerpt from Gathering Darkness

The door opened, interrupting them and in walked a tall man with bushy auburn hair and bright blue eyes. A bow and a quiver of arrows were slung across his shoulders and he was carrying two packs. He put the packs down next to Theo’s bed.

Lowenna stumbled back. Last night, she had seen the man’s face filled with shock, eyes wide, a crossbow bolt buried in his throat. He was the rider, the archer in her dream. She had never before met someone she had dreamt about.

“How are you?” he asked Theo, oblivious of Lowenna’s dazed stare.

“Better than I was last night,” Theo replied.

“Good, I’m glad you’re alright.” The newcomer turned to Lowenna and performed a florid bow. “I am Kael, Priestess,” he announced.

“He’s always showing off,” grumbled Theo but his eyes glittered with merriment.

“I am not a priestess,” said Lowenna, bemused by the pair, pretending that she was not deeply shocked by Kael’s appearance in the temple, by the knowledge she carried about his future. “This is my home and I’m a healer but I have not taken the vows to become a priestess.”

“My apologies, healer.”
