Daughter of Winter Series
Some choose to fight the darkness; others become it.
Darkness and danger enter Brydie MacKay’s life in the form of an unforeseen inheritance.
Ignorant of her turbulent birthright, and unaware that she is marked by an ancient prophecy wielded by the gods, Brydie becomes prey to a powerful adversary who seeks vengeance for the curse laid upon him thousands of years before.
When her life is threatened, and the lives of the people she cares for are placed in jeopardy, Brydie must choose to embrace her legacy and fight the darkness or lose everything she loves.
She thought she was ready to embrace her destiny. She was wrong.
Brydie MacKay has accepted that she is the last Daughter of Winter. Her old life soon becomes a distant memory as she is initiated into a world of Druidic magic. However, the further Brydie delves into her legacy, the more she realises that she is up against impossible odds. Training is brutal beyond imagining, and the full power of her birthright eludes her. To make matters worse, everyone has an agenda – even the man required by prophecy to protect her.
It soon becomes clear that Brydie must prove not only to herself but to all the other descendants that she is worthy of her legacy. However, time is not on her side. Samhain is approaching, and Brydie can never forget that the Dark One is watching, readying himself for his inevitable attack.
What is power without control?
In return for siding with the enemy, Brydie is given the secret to unlocking the full power of her birthright. But no power comes without consequence, and she must learn to become the master, rather than the victim.
Time is inevitably swallowed as Brydie grapples for the place she is owed. Her training is dogged by tales of horror, for not only has the leader of their Druidic clan fallen to the darkness, but he also holds an object of power that could plunge the world into a bone-chilling nightmare.
As the future of her people and control of her power hang in the balance, Brydie soon comes to understand that her guardian is her only shield against the coming storm.

Tritus, Winter’s Mantle
One thing is certain—they’ll need a legion to fight the coming storm.
Following the shattering truth behind the identity of the fifth descendant, and with a myriad of threats looming, Brydie and the others must relocate to Ireland to renew ties with their Druidic cousins, the Fae.
But . . . everything is not as it seems.
Shocking secrets are revealed as Brydie negotiates not only an alliance, but also the complex relationship she holds with her Guardian. As they seek to recover her best friend from the enemy, a horrifying double-cross has devastating consequences.

Prophecy demands Gage have absolute dominion over his Druidic powers.
The dragon snarled in warning, his upper body rearing back on a deep inhalation. Girom’s eyes widened as the rich, ebony scales on the beast’s body changed to a burning, rippling red; understanding that real fire writhed within its belly. He knew what was coming, knew its portent, and he didn’t bother to tread carefully anymore, rather, he moved.
