The White Mage Saga

Assassin's Blade: The White Mage Saga #0.5

Assassin's Blade is a 10,000 word short story in the riveting Chronicles of Lumineia, and precedes the events in The Last Oracle.

Renowned for his flawless kills, the Swordsman is one of the most lethal mages on Earth. His reputation for subtlety allows him to command a high price—despite his singular rule. He does not kill innocents. Recently his employer has been a secretive group known as the Harbingers, whose latest target is not who he seems.

Known only as Hawk, the man proves to be an elusive quarry. When stalking his haunts fails the Swordsman baits a trap and settles in to wait. But this prey is also a predator, one who knows a disturbing truth. If the Swordsman believes it, his rage will see no bounds. No mage or man will deprive him of retribution, for when you betray the Swordsman . . .

You invite his blade.

The Last Oracle: The White Mage Saga #1

Forced into hiding, the mages of Lumineia have been forgotten. In their absence the world has become known by another name, Earth. The humans have flourished with time, unaware that The Last Oracle is destined to unite them. At her touch magic will be unbound, and known again as truth.

But an ancient war harbors a deadly secret. Draeken, the Lord of Chaos, had a second apprentice, one who became trapped with the defeated fiends. Fueled by revenge and dark magic he has mastered a power that Draeken himself could not, and the time is fast approaching for it to be unleashed.

The Dark is waiting . . .

The Sword of Elseerian: The White Mage Saga #2

Led by the mysterious Master, the Harbingers have infiltrated the highest levels of the mage government. They mean to reveal the mages to the world—and then conquer it. To that end they have stolen the Sword of Elseerian, and intend to open the portal to Draeken's vast army.

But the fiends are gone.

In their place another entity lurks. Caged for eons, the Dark feeds on fear . . . and light. If unleashed on Earth it will devour every spark of illumination, until mankind is left in darkness absolute. Madness and terror will rob men of their minds. Each will become extensions of the Dark, flesh without a soul. The Oracle and her allies have a desperate plan, to retrieve the Sword of Elseerian before it can be used. If they fail the Dark will be released.

And the day will have its last dawn. 

Descent Unto Dark: The White Mage Saga #3

The Dark has been unleashed.

Impervious to mage or man, its almighty power is only matched by its hunger. Unchecked it will devour the planet . . . until even the dawn is extinguished. Human and creature alike will become twisted, beasts slaved to the Dark's will. The leash is held by the Harbinger Master, who requires a simple offering to stay the impending slaughter.

Obedience Absolute.

But the nations of Earth have proven their will to fight, and by revealing magic to them the Oracle has ensured they will. Now she must reunite the mage and human worlds—before the Master retaliates. Facing supreme foes and the end of mankind, she needs allies.

She needs an army . . .

Impact of the Fallen: The White Mage Saga #4

Empowered with the magic of luck, the Master has no equal. At her command the Dark has devoured half the globe. Entire nations have been erased, continents have vanished, and billions are dead. The desperate survivors have joined a worldwide evacuation to the Americas. Their hope died when the Oracle fell.

Yet they do not yield.

Inspired by the Oracle's defiance, mankind has chosen to fight. For them to triumph they require a weapon, one which now walks the Dark, forgotten and lost. Battling hordes of fiends, he seeks to escape the cloud. Instead he finds a young woman, one who has fallen from the sky. Both are believed to be dead, and when they return one thing is certain.

The whole of the Earth will feel the impact . . .

The Forge of Light: The White Mage Saga #5

The Dark has nearly consumed the planet. Men and beasts have been stripped of their minds, their bodies twisted to serve the Master's will. Her army now numbers in the trillions and is led by two supreme generals. Even the mages have no power to stop her. Driving the survivors to a last bastion of freedom, she calls for the decimated army to surrender.

But mankind stands defiant.

From the ashes of nations the people have united, and together they brace for the impending storm. Bereft of retreat or refuge they hold to a single hope, that the Oracle can destroy the Dark before they are slaughtered. Facing the end, the Oracle must rise to her birthright and find that which can cleanse the Earth of darkness.

The Forge of Light.
