The Ranger of Marzanna

“THE RANGER OF MARZANNA pits brother against sister in a bewitching, snow-swept world, where political schemes collide with the machinations of a death goddess. A magical tale of power and sacrifice, manipulation and betrayal.”
— Melissa Caruso, author of The Tethered Mage 

When their father is murdered by imperial soldiers, two siblings set out on opposite paths–one will destroy the Empire forever and the other will save it–in this thrilling new epic fantasy from Jon Skovron.

Sonya is training to be a Ranger of Marzanna, an ancient sect of warriors who have protected the land for generations. But the old ways are dying, and the Rangers have all been forced into hiding or killed off by the invading Empire.

When her father is murdered by imperial soldiers, she decides to finally take action. Using her skills as a Ranger she will travel across the bitter cold tundra and gain the allegiance of the only other force strong enough to take down the invaders.

But nothing about her quest will be easy. Because not everyone is on her side. Her brother, Sebastian, is the most powerful sorcerer the world has ever seen. And he’s fighting for the empire.

“In the course of this satisfyingly complex and unpredictable saga, both Sonya and Sebastian mature and face ethical, moral, and emotional choices with consequences that reach across the empire. This solid installment will leave readers eagerly anticipating the next in the series.”

The saga continues…


The Queen of Izmoroz

Sonya has freed Izmoroz. Her brother, the imperial wizard Sebastian, and the vicious Commander Vittorio have retreated to Aureum. But for how long?

Galina, a young noblewoman and Sebastian’s former betrothed, understands the precariousness of her war-torn country. Ineffectively ruled by a fledgling oligarchy, hosting a foreign army of undead, and dominated by the whims of a self-proclaimed servant of Death—what chance would they have if Empress Catarina returned with the full might of the imperial army? Plans must be formed, and sacrifices made…

Down in Aureum, Sebastian is stunned to learn that his beloved mentor Vittorio has infuriated the empress and been declared an enemy of the throne. Now without guidance, what will Sebastian do in an unfamiliar land surrounded by strangers coveting his power? Meanwhile, Sonya seeks guidance as well from the elder Rangers who live out in the tundra. But what she learns will shake her faith in the Goddess of Winter to its core.

The Wizard of Eventide

The gorgeous, pulse-pounding Goddess War Trilogy comes to its thrilling conclusion with THE WIZARD OF EVENTIDE!

As Vittorio’s empire enacts its bloody reign, the Uaine now behind him after a stunning betrayal, a reunited Sonya and Sebastian must embark on a journey to distant lands to amend past wrongs—and find unlikely allies along the way.

In far Raiz, Jorge has his hands full enough with the devastation the Empire left behind. But the battle isn’t over, and the sovereignty of his nation will depend on his ability to band together the ancient houses—and recruiting a figure straight out of legend.

Galina, now Queen of Izmoroz, rules her land with an iron fist in a velvet glove. But heavy is the crown, and enemies lie in wait both within and without her dominion. To realize her vision for a free Izmoroz at last, she’ll have to fight with much more than politics.
