THE HEIR'S DESCENT
THE FALLEN HEIR
“The way I see it, Phildeterre doesn’t have years left if this war continues. We’ll destroy ourselves from the inside out. Then the only thing I’d be inheriting would be the fragmented remains of what used to be the strongest country in the world.”
Diomedes, the crown prince of Phildeterre, can’t seem to make his voice heard in his father’s council meetings. He knows the war on magic must end or Phildeterre will fall.
When a close friend is arrested and facing execution, Diomedes makes the choice to leave his life as crown prince. He sets out to find a peaceful way to end the war and force his father’s hand.
With his best friend, Armannii, by his side, Diomedes travels to distant corners of his father’s country and into an entirely different world. A world filled with magic folk who have escaped the oppression in Phildeterre.
As he seeks the means to end the persecution, he discovers in his own heart a desire.
A desire that has the potential to eclipse his drive to end the war.
A desire that seems impossible.
A desire for magic.
THE HEIR'S BETRAYAL
THE FALLEN HEIR
“Magic isn’t evil. In its truest form, it’s power. That’s what my father doesn’t understand.
Magic can be used for good.”
Diomedes, the rebellious crown prince of Phildeterre, can feel desperation rising with each day that passes. All his efforts to end the war on magic have failed. Since his exile from the castle and his father’s and royal council’s betrayal, Diomedes has been seeking the object that could do the impossible; empower him with magic.
When an unexpected ally sends him and his companions in a promising direction, Diomedes must decide if he’s willing to risk not only his life, but the lives of his loved ones in order to gain magic and end the war.
Facing frozen wastelands and poisonous desert creatures, the disgraced prince ventures farther into Phildeterre than ever before, following the call of something greater than he or his companions can understand.
Each step brings Diomedes closer to a decision. A decision that once made, can never be changed. But the choice is heavy and the cost is high.
