About J.R. Boles
For generations, the kingdom of Arten has stood alone against the ancient dark mage Mercer, a man no longer bound by time. But when King Wern is kidnapped, Queen Arin will risk everything to get him back.
Lynden Trenadin is chosen to join the ranks of the elite Queens Champions both for her prowess as a warrior and her remarkable resemblance to the queen. She has spent her life battling at Artens borders, but now she must defend the queen with her life as they journey to their enemys castle. When the tide of battle goes against them, Lynden unleashes a magical power she didnt know she possessed. Even though she saved hundreds of warriors, Lynden is forced to flee in shame for her use of forbidden magic.
Now on the run, Lynden must raise a rebellion to free her country from the tyranny of the enemy she thought shed destroyed. A band of loyalists and an enclave of ancient mages aid her in her efforts, but with a dark mage bent on her destruction, Lynden must discover a way to harness her new magic before it is too late.
After a lifetime spent battling the Dark Mage Mercer, Lynden can finally destroy him—that is if she can track down a mysterious stone referenced in a letter written hundreds of years ago by a mad prophet. With her closest friends beside her, Lynden returns to the homeland of her father, her birthright, to battle the magical wasteland created by Mercer's dark curse. Only the hand of an heir to Westmark can turn the stone and save Arten.
But Lynden has to find it first. Attacked by remnants of her father’s people and faced with impossible prejudices, she refuses to be defeated. The journey toward defeating Mercer tests even her tightest bonds of love and friendship. And it is a test which might require her very soul.
