The Battle Dancer (Prequel 1 to The Red Wraith Series)

Everyone in Dzune had always assumed Tay could read fates, that her milky eyes let her discern what others couldn't. Villagers brought gifts in exchange for her wisdom and treated it as the ironclad word of the Sun Father. There was only one problem: Tay couldn't actually see the future.

 

Not at all initially, and only a little after her awakening. She'd had a true vision once, though, an image of her—armed and angry—safeguarding a strange man on a green hill. And now that man had come to Dzune.

Please Note: This story doesn’t fully resolve on its own—it’s meant as a lead-in to The Red Wraith.

The Ascenders (Prequel 2 to The Red Wraith Series)

A rabble-rouser with burn scars marring his neck and face. A runaway slave who limps and mutters to himself. Another exile, this one riddled with pockmarks and accompanied by a dirty seagull. A dowser who braids her hair in elaborate patterns threaded with blue flowers. What do these outcasts—these reluctant witches and warlocks and shamans—have in common? They’re about to find out.

 

And the truth will cause them to love, fight, and kill each other.
