Stodgy Professor Roric Rossony has been asked to find a way to stop the deterioration of the magica, the Vorunne Dominion’s powerful magical force. With the help of his free-spirited assistant, Perarre Tabrano, he begins the most important work of his life – and quickly discovers that long-held truths about the magica might not be true at all.
Driven by the need to find the truth about the magica - and with his orderly life turned upside-down by his unexpected romance with Perarre - Roric goes too far in his research, delving into lost and forbidden books that have been hidden away for centuries.
Then the most dangerous book of all falls into Roric's hands, and magical disaster strikes. Forced to flee from the Dominion authorities, Roric and Perarre embark on a journey to discover the secret of the magica’s origins and restore the damaged power, a journey that only their growing magical powers and their love for each other will help them survive.
Epic romantic fantasy for adults and older teens.
About the Author
Beginning with the Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander and the Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. Leguin, Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. She has also always loved a good love story. In 1990, as a new stay-at-home mom, she finally decided to combine those two loves - like chocolate and peanut butter! - by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read. Courageous and complicated heroes, strong, smart, and sweet heroines, magic, romance, adventure, heroism, excursions into the dark corners of life and human nature, and a dash of offbeat humor - all of these make up Kyra Halland's worlds. Now she is pleased and excited to share those worlds with readers, and hopes that others will enjoy her worlds and stories and characters as much as she does. Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, and two young adult sons. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up.
