Kali, a mage who longs to run from the painful memories of her deceased father, travels to Whitewater City to meet with a powerful healer. When her sentinel escort is decimated by monstrous bandits, she is left in the company of a single sentinel, Stonewall, a man with nothing left but his chosen name and his faith in the gods. Together, they must survive demonic creatures, bloodthirsty nomads, and a strange magic never seen before.
But trouble brews in Whitewater City. Sentinel Commander Talon struggles to keep the mages captive as Eris, a shape-changing mage, prepares for an escape of her own. Meanwhile, Milo, a new sentinel, must decide if the path he's chosen is the right one after tragedy strikes his squad.
In an uncertain world on the brink of chaos, can love and destiny prevail?
When Kalinda parts ways with Stonewall at Whitewater City, she has no idea if she will ever see him again. But when their paths cross once more, they find themselves in the middle of impending turmoil.
Fear consumes the land as the body-snatching thralls are multiplying and destroying everything in their path. Meanwhile, rebellion is brewing between the mages and sentinels and threatening to rock the very foundations of their co-existence.
The mage Kali has uncovered the secret of the thralls: the unseen foes possessing the Aredian people. But Kali must pay a high price for this discovery – her own humanity. Her sentinel lover, Stonewall, is desperate to flee Whitewater City with Kali, but his commanding officer has other plans for him. Meanwhile, a grieving Eris plans to free the final few mages trapped in the Whitewater City bastion, but first she must gather her allies and fortify her spirit to face the coming storm.
Some of you might know that I'm a huge audiophile. Not only do I live for live music events like Hulaween (see picture to the left), music is my muse, my constant source of inspiration, so naturally everything I write has a soundtrack in my mind - and in (virtual) reality!
Here are the Spotify playlists for each Catalyst Moon book, even the ones you haven't read yet.
I tend to curate these as I'm writing, so some songs may change, but this is pretty much a peek inside my brain.
What about you? What sort of music moves you? Inspires you? Brings you joy? Music is one of the best things in the world, and though I can't create it (I've tried, and failed), I can't go one day without putting on a beloved song or artist*.
Thanks for reading/listening!
