The Eye of Ksera

Tales from Ondiran, Book One

It’s hard to hide from a sorceress—as Colmar, a reluctant soldier of fortune, discovers after crossing the distinctly dangerous Valdira over the Eye of Ksera, a powerful magical artifact. To add to his troubles, a sinister necromancer, a grasping abbess, and an undead sorceress-queen all have it in their sights, as well!

Indeed, the Eye is an ill-fated gem that has cost the lives of many who have sought to possess it over the centuries. Who will survive this briskly paced adventure in a quirky world with two moons and five different systems of magic? Who will emerge from it with the Eye?

And, nearly as important, who will end up with custody of Angvar, the necromancer’s crested green lizard?

A breezy sword and sorcery novella presented with a dry wit that will plant a smile on the reader’s face. … Every character entertains. … The author has done a wonderful job of ensuring they aren’t two-dimensional caricatures.       — Book blogger W. A. Stanley

The book has an enjoyable writing style with an entertaining ironic undertone that makes the main characters stand out on the page.       — Gordon A. Long, author of “The Petrellan Saga” fantasy series
