Death's Lady Trilogy

The Year’s Midnight

A gifted psychiatrist, Daniel Dodson is perfectly aware that he’s in a tough place personally following the death of his wife. Then a mysterious new patient offers a welcome professional distraction.The world of swords and magic that Tenai so vividly remembers obviously can’t be real. The deadly enmity and long war that left such deep emotional scars plainly symbolize something else. But perhaps Daniel can use the signposts of those confabulated memories to aid Tenai in moving forward into a new life in the real world.

Praise for The Death’s Lady Trilogy:



5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant, so glad they came out all at once Reviewed in the United States on May 24, 2021

I’m so glad that all three books in this trilogy came out at the same time so that I could run screaming from one book to the next. (Well, I wasn’t screaming… out loud, anyway.) There’s so much that can be said about the world-building, the characters, the conflicts, the sheer wisdom and reflections built into that world.

Okay, just as an aside, I’m not going to gut myself with that sword so I can meet Lord Death. But everyone else in the book, minus a villain or two, I would love to sit down and chat with. As long as they weren’t asking me to take part in their martial art instructions. Horseback riding I can handle, even roughing it in a non-tech world, but coordination and swords, not so much.

If you like fantasy, great storytelling, tales of new worlds, new beginnings, and a bucketful or two of peril, you’ll love this story. Great for fans of Lois McMaster Bujold, Garth Nix, Brandon Sanderson, and the like.

Altogether, simply a wonderful, engaging, and enthralling adventure. Would give it 10 stars if I could.

Of Absence, Darkness

Down the rabbit hole, but not to Wonderland.

Daniel never imagined that Tenai’s memories of her earlier life might be absolutely true. But when he and his daughter are swept up in the plots of her enemies and dropped abruptly into a world of dark magic and darker history, Daniel must find a way to aid Tenai against the all-too-real echoes of her past.

Though the hidden schemes of Tenai’s enemies offer peril enough, the worse threat comes from within: if Tenai cannot master the vast rage she still carries, her own fury may shatter her world.

As Shadow, A Light

Sometimes the past does not let go.

Tenai is determined that no one will use her to break the fragile peace of her world, even if that means she must support and defend the son of her bitterest enemy. But set against four hundred years of fury and hatred, that determination may not be enough.

Daniel has come to know far more about Tenai’s adversaries than he ever wanted to — more than she knows herself. Forced into unwilling cooperation with these enemies, Daniel must find a way to defy their plans, protect his daughter, and help Tenai overcome the shadows of her past — before it’s too late.
