before them on the altar, Shovar could no longer hold his disguise. Anouxia’s potion and
magic were strong, but not stronger than his lust for quickening.
manifested his identity as Lord of Death. Streams of light flashed between the victim on
the altar and Shovar. Druids knelt in fear before the now transformed white skinned,
hooded figure, The Lord of Death. Shovar’s body quaked with ecstasy as the power of the
sacrificial quickening entered him. His piercing silver eyes glowed with energy. Shovar
turned to the crowd in drunken revelry; pointing his finger reminding them all that he held
the power of death over them, taking whom he would, young or old, when he would and
where he would.
The now sober crowd, fell upon their faces in submission to the Lord of Death wailing
and pleading to be spared. Shovar laughed cruelly reminding them of the bravery and
courage one little maiden possessed as compared with the spinelessness of the cursed
cowards pleading before him.
He scolded them saying, “Worthless swine! You cringe at death. None of you are
brave enough to save your own lives in battle, yet you sacrifice a young maiden hoping to
spare yourselves a poor harvest. You are to be pitied, cowards! I will come for each of you
in my own good time. Remember that!”
With this, the Lord of Death vanished into the night of the forest. His words hung like
clanging bells in the air. No one moved, fearing he might return. The mood changed from
celebration to somber fear which gripped each man’s heart with hoops of cold steel.
I took great pleasure in writing Destiny's Warriors. Celt myth and the wonderment of
Pagan gods sent me on a journey that took 17 years to write the first 3 books in the
series. The brutality of human sacrifice to appease the gods is a part of history that
is horrific. And, the idea of Gods having to deal with the same emotional issues as
mortal man was fascinating for me to create. This wonderful journey into mystical
realms guided me to continue the saga. I tell of enchanted warriors, mystical
creatures and monsters such as Crimson Death and Banshees. The struggle to
survive, heartache, betrayal and rivalry are what my characters have to face in this
fantasy. You'll cry, cringe in fear and feel in awe at the romance as you read my tale.
I hope you enjoy reading my Destiny's Warriors series:
