About the books:
Dark Storm Rising, (Book 1): A world swirling with mystical realms, enchanted forests and crowded cities, things are not always what they seem. An evil darkness approaches in the form of Lord Thane as the lord of the Azmathous, created by the powerful sorcerer Aasarak. With life as they know it threatened, battling necromancers, the undead, and other dangerous creatures, Adrianna and her friends, the Wildrunners, must find the courage and power to overcome the evil shadows that threaten Shandahar.
Echoes of Time, (Book 2): Darkness looms over Shandahar as Lord Thane and his ghastly azmathous lay a swath of destruction across the continent. Still, even he is not as great an evil as his creator. The necromancer, Lord Aasarak and his legions of warriors fallen in past battles await the day they are free to wreak havoc over the world. Adrianna must decide whether to stay with her companions and search for a way to destroy Aasarak, or leave them to be trained and develop her talent for the battle that lay ahead.
Whispers of Prophecy, (Book 3): The Wildrunners have split their ranks to accomplish the needed preparation for the coming battle with the necromancer, Aasarak. It proves more difficult than anticipated and miserable defeat shadows their every step. Meanwhile, Adrianna apprentices to the powerful dimensionalist, Tallachienan Chroalthone. Beleaguered by strange dreams and visions that cause her to doubt her sanity, Adrianna fights to keep her will and her mind her own behind the mysterious walls of Tallachienan’s gloomy citadel. But, Adrianna’s ancestral bloodline is strong and she struggles to complete her tasks in hopes of soon returning to the Wildrunners and her sworn Protector.
