The Edge of Justice

When the Azgaril Northern Liberation Army invades the tiny nation of Tamaria, Centurion Dathan Herulus struggles to harmonize his orders with his conscience. As the Azgaril army marches northward, Garrick Ravenwood, a young Tamarian soldier with a troubled past, meets Brenna Velez, a Lithian warlord's daughter who has fled the destruction of her homeland. Their meeting leads to love, and their courage helps Tamaria resist the might of the invading force. 

The Long Journey

As a brutal civil war encroaches on the Tamarian border, Garrick Ravenwood undertakes officer training in preparation to stop the humanitarian crisis. Brenna Velez, the girl he loves, worries that the strife in Kameron will destroy her family, their exile estate and their high-tech light forges. Meanwhile Garrick's younger brother, Algernon, travels into the war zone to find and rescue his wayward twin sister. 


In late autumn, Algernon Ravenwood struggles to finish a home he can share with his twin sister, Kira, on Superstition Mesa. To his dismay, the young monk discovers giants living nearby. Kira suffers a lingering, secret malaise. As her past haunts her present, can she find hope for the future? Garrick, their brother, faces defeat as a combat leader in Kameron and struggles with dissent within his ranks, while his beloved Brenna is taken captive by Kamerese rebels. Will she seek revenge for her mistreatment when she escapes, or can Brenna find the courage and grace to forgive? 

Ceremonies and Celebrations

Cassie Velez and her fiancee, Jared Hohner--uneasy guests of King Alejo at his palace in Kameron City--witness rioting and intrigue as they advocate for a peaceful resolution to Kameron's political problems. Kira and Algernon Ravenwood begin ministering to exploited women in Tamaria's capital, coping with mistrust and outright hostility. Garrick worries that his fiancee, Brenna Velez, is suffering from mental illness in the days leading up to their long-anticipated wedding. Can he accept her faith and love her while she struggles against spiritual forces he can neither see nor understand?
