The Onchei are back.
And trouble looms…
The Onchei want to learn what happened to their brethren on Algoran from the only survivor, Zeetra. Yet they learn instead she has broken the Onchei’s highest law: never intermarry or have children with another race. For this, she now faces execution.
Jordan SnowFire fears the Onchei will blame the Mokta and seek retribution soon. Only an ancient heirloom, which contains the ultimate Onchei knowledge, can save the Mokta…except it’s on Earth, a world she hasn’t seen in decades.
Jordan sends her son, Arrow, and her friend’s daughter, Maska, to rescue Zeetra while she travels back to Earth to seek the Onchei artifact. What tie is there between a thousand-year-old object and Jordan’s ancestors? Could this explain why she and her mother were originally abducted and brought to Algoran?
In the skies of Algoran, a final confrontation looms between the Onchei and the Mokta. And on Earth, Jordan finds more than she could have possibly imagined…
Other Books in the Series
1.) What was the inspiration for this series?
I wanted to write a brand-new fantasy tale. I had never written that genre before and the challenge intrigued me. But it quickly turned into a science-fantasy, since most of the story takes place on an alien world.
2.) Can these be read as standalones?
Yes and no. Each book has its own story to tell, but they are woven together by what happens to the characters. You could read the second book on its own, but to understand some elements of the story, it’s good to know what happened in Book One. And by the time you get to the third book, it really helps to have knowledge of what happened in the first two.
3.) Is the series going to continue, and if so, what can we expect?
The third book is the final book in the Jordan of Algoran series. Jordan’s tale has been told. If there is anything else in this universe, it would take inspiration from the Lord and would not be directly about Jordan herself.
4.) To which character did you best relate?
The main character, Jordan. There are many enjoyable characters in the series, but it’s centered around Jordan for a reason: we follow her life, the ups and downs, joys and losses. We get to see her grow as a woman. She’s not perfect, she makes some big mistakes along the way, but she has a good heart. She’s the most relatable character, in my opinion.
5.) What was one of your favorite scenes?
There’s a scene in Jordan’s Arrow (Book 2) where Jordan just wants to spend time with her mate/husband, Bopol. She is very pregnant with their daughter, ponderous and understandably clumsy. Bopol loves her with all his heart and is very protective of her. She stumbles and almost falls, but he sweeps her up with his strong arms. And when she tells him she wants to spend the day in those arms, he is delighted. He encourages their five-year old son to go see a best friend elsewhere in the village so he and Jordan can have some precious “us” time together. It’s a lovely scene and really brings out how close Bopol and Jordan are in their relationship by this point in the series. I enjoyed writing it and bringing out this aspect of the characters.
6.) What is something readers may be surprised to learn about you?
I’m a musician and singer. My wife and I have belonged to a Christian band called “First Light” since 1997. I play electric bass guitar and sing tenor. My wife plays viola and violin. She sings soprano.
