before them on the altar, Shovar could no longer hold his disguise. Anouxia’s
potion and magic were strong, but not stronger than his lust for quickening.
Celts, he manifested his identity as Lord of Death. Streams of light flashed between
the victim on the altar and Shovar. Druids knelt in fear before the now transformed
white skinned, hooded figure, The Lord of Death. Shovar’s body quaked with
ecstasy as the power of the sacrificial quickening entered him. His piercing silver
eyes glowed with energy. Shovar turned to the crowd in drunken revelry; pointing
his finger reminding them all that he held the power of death over them, taking
whom he would, young or old, when he would and where he would.
The now sober crowd, fell upon their faces in submission to the Lord of Death
wailing and pleading to be spared. Shovar laughed cruelly reminding them of the
bravery and courage one little maiden possessed as compared with the
spinelessness of the cursed cowards pleading before him.
He scolded them saying, “Worthless swine! You cringe at death. None of you
are brave enough to save your own lives in battle, yet you sacrifice a young maiden
hoping to spare yourselves a poor harvest. You are to be pitied, cowards! I will
come for each of you in my own good time. Remember that!”
With this, the Lord of Death vanished into the night of the forest. His words
hung like clanging bells in the air. No one moved, fearing he might return. The mood
changed from celebration to somber fear which gripped each man’s heart with
hoops of cold steel.
I took great pleasure in writing Destiny's Warriors. Celt myth and the
wonderment of Pagan gods sent me on a journey that took 17 years to write
the first 3 books in the series. The brutality of human sacrifice to appease
the gods is a part of history that is horrific. And, the idea of Gods having to
deal with the same emotional issues as mortal man was fascinating for me to
create. This wonderful journey into mystical realms guided me to continue
the saga. I tell of enchanted warriors, mystical creatures and monsters such
as Crimson Death and Banshees. The struggle to survive, heartache, betrayal
and rivalry are what my
characters have to face in this fantasy. You'll cry, cringe in fear and feel in
awe at the romance as you read my tale.
I hope you enjoy reading Destiny's Warriors The Beginning Book #1,
Destiny's Warriors The Last Sacrifice 2nd in the series and Destiny's
Warriors Pure Evil 3rd in the series.

Destiny's Warriors The Black Shadow of Death Book #4
Both Michael and I enjoy the idea of what motivates people and how far they
are willing to go for their ambitions. We wanted to take this book down a
different path than the previous books. In real life, the hero does not always
win or make the best choice. Moreover, everyone has an evil streak; for the
most part suppressed. Going into our “what if” mode we were curious to see
the dark side of the best, the wisest and the loyalist. Are there limits to what
a person will do for power and knowledge to proclaim themselves superior to
all others? In addition, we became curious as to the ancestors of our
characters and dipped into their history to wreak havoc on their present time.
This tale is a fantasy/adventure filled with unexpected plot twists, betrayal,
lust, insanity and deceit; spiced with slavery and gladiator competitions all
surrounded by the evilest of magic and the shadow of death.
May a Rainbow be your guide down destiny's path.
