Alaric, who betrayed everything he believed to save his wife — and still failed.

And Sini, a former slave girl with unimaginable power but no way to wield it.

The truth is neither plain, nor simple.
Sable, a reluctant thief from the slums, can feel truth when people speak. For years she’s been using that skill to try to break free from the vicious gang boss she's indebted to.
Escape comes in the form of an odd set of companions:
-a dwarf running from the past,
-an actor with a magical, glowing tree
-a too-helpful kobold,
-a playwright with a knack for getting stories out of people, and
-a man and woman with suspicious, magical powers.
But Sable’s freedom is short lived.
On the edges of civilization, they discover hidden, terrifying lies in the offers of peace from the brutal Kalesh Empire.
Now, she must return to the city she fled, and along with her companions, attempt an impossible task—convince everyone, including the powerful Dragon Prioress, of the truth.
Except the Kalesh web of lies has ensnared everyone.
With her land, her people, and everything she loves hanging in the balance, Sable is the only one standing between freedom, and certain death.

Tomkin Thornhewn, youngest son of the Duke of Marshwell, has a problem: he’s not heroic.
Regardless of his aspirations, the bookish, untrained young man is better suited to recording the deeds of heroes than being one himself.
Which becomes an obvious problem when he finds himself clinging to a ledge above a sleeping dragon. And instead of wielding his family’s great sword with valor and skill, he drops it—onto the dragon.
The problem grows immeasurably worse when Tomkin himself falls off the ledge—also onto the dragon.
And his problem reaches its peak when Tomkin, after being captured, discovers a maiden locked in a tower. But this is no sweet damsel. Not only does she refuse to be rescued, she refuses to even admit she’s in distress.
It’s too bad for the people of Marshwell that Tomkin is the only thing standing - or falling - in the dragon’s way.

Can Sini keep her past from destroying everyone's future?
Sini has finally found a family with the Keepers.
After escaping from a childhood on the street and years of slavery, Sini's new life as a Keeper should be idyllic. But she can't shake the feeling she just doesn't belong.
Not only because she's the first female Keeper in centuries. Her magic is too different to be useful. And Lukas, her foster brother who loved and protected her from the worst ravages of slavery, is now being accused of terrible things.
When the Keepers are called to the capitol to address this threat, she finds herself once again out of place. As much as Sini doesn't want to believe it, the evidence is growing that Lukas is amassing an army along the southern border. He's using his magic to poison the minds of Queensland's people, and his dragon to spread death and destruction.
To save Queensland, Sini teams up with Will and Alaric to enlist the aid of the dwarves. Sini's magical powers finally begin to stir, but with a frightening intensity.
Will Sini learn to control her magic, or will she lose everything to the brother she doesn't want to fight?
Siege of Shadows is the third and final book in the engaging world of The Keeper Chronicles. Great for fans of Brandon Sanderson, Lindsay Buroker, and Robin Hobb!

- Killien, the unyielding clan chief who’s becoming increasingly volatile.
- Sora, the suspicious ranger who sees more than she should.
- A swarm of frost goblins that devour with tooth and claw.
The list of people and things that could get Will killed keeps growing.
While Alaric is in Queensland, searching for Kordan’s Wellstone, Keeper Will is over the mountains in the hostile Roven Sweep, searching for his missing sister.
After catching a glimpse of a woman who could be her in a Keeper-hating Roven clan. Will convinces Killien to let him travel north with them to their summer homes.
Under the relentless suspicions of Sora, a tenuous friendship grows between Will and Killien, who talks of building peace among the hostile Roven.
Except Will’s thin disguise as a storyteller is crumbling quickly and Sora may already know who he is.
The more Will gets to know Killien, the more troubling things he learns. Killien’s hatred for Keepers runs deep, and for all his talk of peace, the man’s greatest wish is to control a vicious army.
And a dragon.
But Will doesn’t know that the chief has taken more from him than just his sister.
And Killien controls enough power to gain everything he wants.
