Spread to the corners of the world, Ayla, Ward, Cade, and Riona race against time to find the last pieces of the magical seod croíbefore Eoghan does.

Freshly returned from the troll realm, Queen Ayla faces the mounting problems at the southern border. The Konevellians have stopped all shipments, and things are getting dire. She sends Ward to negotiate a peace deal - when he discovers the country seems primed to invade. Now the former farm boy-turned-captain must rally his troops to protect the kingdom from its greatest threat yet.

In the fae realm, Riona struggles to keep the greater fae away from the newly-resettled trolls. The Erlking's edicts don't seem to be working as well as they used to, and her uncle Aldrick's power grows every day.

The wizard Cade has ventured south in search of the stone, and meets a captain who hails from his long-lost people. He climbs aboard her ship, hoping to get a ride back home, but she's got secrets of her own.

The third book in The Seod Croí Chronicles takes readers on a journey over land, air, and sea as the quartet face their greatest challenge yet--all the while, keeping a wary eye on the horizon for Eoghan's treachery.

A Quest of Earth and Magic2022-09-09T12:38:08-05:00

Their quest was just the beginning

Queen Ayla has ascended the throne, but finds her kingdom in tatters after years of deception. She is eager to reopen the lines of trade and alliances with the other kingdoms, but all they want is her hand in marriage and the power of the Pennlan stone that comes with it. Her heart is conflicted, especially as the knight Ward draws ever closer to her.

When a troll arrives in Pennlan inviting her to visit the mysterious realm, Ayla sees a golden opportunity to open trade with another race of magical creatures without needing to marry anyone. Not only that, but the trolls profess to have another piece of the seod croí—and Ayla is eager to strike up an alliance with them before anyone else does.

She summons home her best friend, the wizard Cade who had been continuing his magical training under the watchful eye of the fae. But the trolls don't just invite Ayla. Riona is also summoned, hoping to rebuild bridges burned a thousand years ago. And when they arrive in the troll kingdom, they find things might not be as easy as they'd hoped.

The second book in the Seod Croí Chronicles takes readers back to Pennlan for another journey full of twists and turns.

A knight in search of his place

In six weeks, Princess Ayla will assume the throne left vacant by her murdered father. But without the magical Pennlan stone, stolen by her evil fae stepmother, Ayla fears her reign may be short-lived.

Cade, her best friend and wizard apprentice, has been tasked to retrieve the stone from the dangerous fae realm. Completing this quest will be the last step toward becoming a fully-fledged wizard—and may just win the heart of his beloved princess. But Cade’s not going alone. Ward, a knight eager to prove himself, has been tapped to escort him - and has his eye on the princess as well.

But as their journey takes them farther from home, a mysterious fae girl begins to follow them, swearing their quest is a lie and there's more to the king's death then they've been told. And most importantly: she knows exactly where to find the stone.

Full of twists and turns, magical monsters, and a slow burn mystery, A Quest of Blood and Stone is sure to delight all young adult readers of epic fantasy fiction.
