The "Rise Of The Phoenix" Series

A Single Spark

“My name is Carys. This is my story, though perhaps it is more of an explanation, or maybe a confession...its name matters less than the fact it is my only way to show the world that I am not the villain the history books will claim that I am...everything that I did was to save those I love.”


In the first book of the gripping 'Rise Of The Phoenix' series, we meet Lady Carys, the oft-overlooked middle child of an aristocratic family, though undoubtedly the glue that holds them together. Old rumors of murder and corruption and the tragic death of their mother haunt them, finally driving them to start fresh in a new land.


Carys and her family quickly learn that a simpler life does not mean safer, uncovering dangers that lurk in the shadows even in this rustic city filled with simple folk. As they struggle to build their new life and avoid trouble, Ben is hired into the family's service, a mysterious and handsome stranger who’s guardianship over Carys becomes deeply personal as he seeks to keep her and her family safe.


All the while, beyond their realm of perception, the gathering storm churns around them, threatening to pull them into a tempest of malevolence far greater than they could imagine. Will they discover the true threat before it’s too late?
