The knowledge Leena needs to save the ones she loves does not exist in the land of Allivan. In order to learn the secrets that will help her reach her family, she and her friends must cross into lands unknown across the Impassable Desert. The never-ending expanse of oppressive heat and ever-lasting thirst may prove too much for the group, especially when a mysterious night-stalker seems to be pursuing them.


"Clarion of Destiny" is the eight volume fantasy tale of Leena, a young hedge witch in training selected by destiny to combat the greatest challenge her world has known. In an epic journey that leads through foreign lands and mysterious realms where demons, monsters and magic rule, this inexperienced young girl is forced to overcome a protected childhood to face challenges that would crush far more experienced adventurers. With each step, each passing day, she draws closer to a malevolent force so formidable it has defeated the mightiest armies and the strongest magic in her world. How can one lone girl hope to overcome an evil that has never known defeat?

In Volume 3, Beyond the Horizon, Leena sets out on an impossible journey. After learning that the knowledge she needs does not exist in Allivan, she and her friends are forced to attempt crossing the Impassable Desert, an unmapped, inhospitable tract of land no one has ever returned from. A difficult journey becomes hopeless when Leena is separated from her companions. Can she succeed, lost and alone in a barbaric land, overrun by nightmare creatures, where only the strongest survive?

Question: What type of fantasy series is Clarion of Destiny?

Clarion of Destiny is an epic fantasy series following the growth and coming of age of a young hedge witch named Leena. Along her journey, she encounters cunning humans, such as wizards and knights, as well as some brutish foes, like orcs and goblins. The series is a coming of age tale set in a sword and sorcery setting that I enjoyed writing and know that you will enjoy reading.


Question: Who is the Clarion of Destiny series good for?

Answer: Not to be cliche here, but the Clarion of Destiny epic fantasy series was written for the teen and young adult audience, but is definitely suitable for everyone. Throughout my life, I've read mounds and mounds of fantasy books of all types and age demographics, and used them as inspirations for my own works. Therefore, there's elements suited for all types throughout the whole series that everyone from new adults, college scholars, and some more seasoned readers such as myself will love!


Question: How many books are in the series?

Answer: Clarion of Destiny originally started out as a series of four very long, dictionary length books. But, after asking my readers back when the books were first released about the length, I received some feedback that they were too long, and moved a bit slow at parts. In order to make the reading experience better for my readers, I decided to break the series into eight, better, faster moving books instead.


Thank you checking out my series, and I know you'll enjoy reading them!
