Shaan and Tallis have escaped from the fallen god, Azoth, but his dark shadow stretches over the enslaved people of the Wild Lands and the terrifying army of human-serpent warriors. War is coming, but the Council of Nine turn from the twins and their tales of Azoth’s menace, focusing instead on a war on the Free Lands.
Meanwhile, the Four Lost Gods have awoken, ready to reclaim the Birthstone currently in Azoth’s possession. But rather than the saviours Shaan and Tallis needed, the Four begin to exert terrible control over the people of Saranthium. With Tallis struggling to control the growing power within, and Shaan attempting to resist the pull of Azoth, the twins are under assault from all sides. Victory may still be possible, but only through a devastating act of betrayal
Lara Morgan is a pen name I use to write fantasy and science fiction. I have also written under the name Lara Martin as well as my maiden name, Lara Brncic – one which many find much more difficult to pronounce.
I’m a first generation Australian (my mother is Bermudian and my father Croatian) and I grew up in the towns of Mount Helena and Chidlow in the hills outside of Perth, Western Australia where the trees are tall, the summers are hot and it wasn’t unusual to find a snake in the grass down the back of the block. I was a bookworm of a kid spending a lot of nights reading with a torch when it was supposed to be lights out and wrote my first book when I was still in primary school: a blatantly plagiarized version of The Magic Faraway Tree – thank you so much Enid Blyton for your stellar imagination.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of Western Australia where I met my partner, Grant, and have lived in Geraldton since 1993 – not counting the months where we’ve run away to join the backpacker circus in Europe, North America or Asia. I’ve worked as an arts project officer, been production manager of a newspaper and a consulting editor and even at one stage had a great time writing a weekly TV column where I criticized everything with ferocious abandon – but then there came a time when I had to grow up and find my real job AKA being a writer. If you want to know how I got published click on the Writing link for the full thrilling story.
Currently, I write full time and when I’m not working (or even when I am supposed to be) I can be found either reading or feeding my insatiable need for science fiction television shows.
If you want to contact me please feel free to send me an EMAIL through this site, writing is a lonely business and it’s always lovely to know there’s people out there.
