Archeology and anarchy? Magic and mayhem? Relics and havoc? All of the above, and Taryn St. Giles just keeps digging. After the destruction caused by the discovery of the glass gargoyle, the last thing archeologist Taryn St. Giles needs is another elven artifact capable of obliterating the world. But her eccentric new patroness seems hell bent on finding exactly that. An unholy companion piece to the glass gargoyle, the obsidian chimera may be far worse, and it may more than just an artifact. It also could prove deadly to anyone who finds it. Struggling to unearth the connection between her overzealous patroness, an outbreak of zombie trolls, and an infestation of flying snakes, Taryn also stumbles upon proof that the elves are still alive. She'll need all the help she can get from old friends and an old adversary who might be more than a friend, because the elves have changed in the thousand years they've been missing. Unfortunately, their murderous spells are not a thing of myth. They want the obsidian chimera back. And they won't let anything, or anyone, stop them from reclaiming it-and the rest of Taryn's world.
About the Author
Marie is a fantasy and science fiction reader with a serious writing addiction. If she wasn't writing about all the people in her head, she'd be lurking about coffee shops annoying total strangers with her stories. So really, writing is a way of saving the masses. Her first fantasy trilogy, The Lost Ancients, starts with The Glass Gargoyle coming out in March 2015, with book two, The Obsidian Chimera, following in fall 2015, and book three, The Emerald Dragon, coming out in winter 2015/2016. The rest of the series (currently planned at six books total) will be out in 2016 and 2017. When not saving the masses from coffee shop shenanigans, Marie likes to visit the UK and keeps hoping someone will give her a nice summer home in the Forest of Dean.
