8 December 2006 Council of War, Book Three of Demonstone Chronicles released in ebook formats


The Remora has sunk, and there is no way for the Alceans to return home before war breaks out. Stranded in the land of their enemy, seventeen Alceans set out to bring a quarter of a million enemy soldiers to their knees. 

Alexander Tork poses as Garth Shado, a special agent for a wealthy Tyronian merchant. To plot the destruction of his enemy, he makes alliances with all of the enemies of the Federation, but the real task will be in pulling the coalition together and coordinating the diverse forces under his command. 

Time is short and many of his new allies balk at Garth's efforts to create a Council of War. The fate of Alcea rests with the ability of the small group of Alceans to inflict damage on the Federation and obtain information on the attack plans of the enemy. Only a Council of War can ease the flow of soldiers set to attack Alcea.

Entertaining Read …….. Recommended …. 5 stars


Knights of Alcea vibrates with excitement in this keenly focused account. Readers are catapulted along on an excited ramble filled with fast paced exchange, interwoven story lines, and an excellently masterminded theme in this recital of conflict, perfidiousness and manipulation. Antagonism abounds and is appropriately determined to reader gratification.

17 May 2006 Knights of Alcea, Book One of the Demonstone Chronicles released in ebook formats.


Knights of Alcea is both a new beginning and a continuation. The Demonstone Chronicles series begins about three years after the conclusion of the Sword of Heavens series. The Knights of Alcea have returned to their home and pursued their private lives, but that is about to change as a new threat rears its demonic head.


Old friends will reappear in the Demonstone Chronicles, and new faces will be introduced. The series will be at least three books, but it is too early to determine if it will go longer.
