A world plunging into darkness. An exiled Dragon Lord struggling with his destiny. A young woman terrified of an ancient prophecy she has set in motion. He came through the Dark Rift hunting for those who had escaped his wrath. Unchecked, his evil spread. Now, the world hangs on a knife-edge and all seems destined to fall. But when the dark moon rises a goddess awakens, and nothing can stop the prophecy unfolding. The Dread Dragons came when the sun set, hunting for the one of prophecy. Her homeland razed and her family murdered, Issa alone escapes the slaughter. Fleeing from the undead hordes of Baelthrom, she is thrown helplessly into the battle for the fate of the world. But when a forgotten goddess speaks to her, she discovers she has magical powers beyond her wildest dreams... or worst nightmares. Asaph, exiled prince of a lost kingdom and last of the mighty, shapeshifting Dragon Lords, has dreamed of Issa his whole life. Even as he struggles against the dragon awakening within him, he must find the woman who haunts him, or die trying. The world hangs between the darkness and the light but only the hidden powers of a young woman can save it. Night Goddess is the first novel in an epic fantasy adventure series readers are comparing to Raymond E. Feist's Riftwar Saga, Terry Goodkind's The Sword of Truth, Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Chronicles, and David Edding's The Mallorean. The Goddess Prophecies sword and sorcery epic is being hailed as one of the best high fantasy series in years, drawing on all the appeal of Tolkien's deep and soulful characters, Robert Jordan's sweeping worlds, and Marion Bradley's unyielding heroines. This is a saga full of spirit, determination and resilience. "The world of Maioria is richly textured and imagined, in the vein of Robert Jordan's very successful Wheel of Time series. A nice difference is that your Chosen One is female rather than male." - Mollie M., Reviewer, Writer, Editor "A beautifully wrought fantasy with every element you could ever crave in the genre. Heroines, Heroes, A dark lord, dragons, elves, magic aplenty. A wonderful introduction to a promising new series." - Heather M., Amazon Top 1000 Reviewer "Like the fulfilling high fantasy stories of old, this book is filled with the best the genre has to offer; swords, dragons, witches and wizards, shapeshifters, and epic battles - with a touch of romance..." Jon M., Reader "Your books are better than David Eddings" - John F., Reader

This book examines how contemporary fantasy literature offers critical insights into western society and culture by drawing on the ancient myths of Wales. These books emphasise the need to have a set of social and personal values in order to be free from a sense of dislocation and alienation in a highly technologised society and in order to satisfy the sense of 'hiraeth' or longing for a place where one truly belongs.

A warrior woman and her dark twin are destined to remake the world in this “powerful” tale, the first in a trilogy by a World Fantasy Award winner (Newsweek). Legend foretold the child named Jenna, who was three-times orphaned before she could crawl, a fate that would leave her in the hands of women who worshipped the benevolent goddess Great Alta. In this world without men, Jenna comes of age, learning quickly the skills of close combat. But her most powerful gift lies elsewhere: a mirror sister who emerges only in the darkness—a twin named Skada—and shares the soul of the young, white-haired warrior who might well be the goddess reborn. But if Jenna is, in truth, the one whose coming is awaited, there is cause for great alarm among those who rule the Dales, for the prophecy speaks of upheaval and change, and a devastating end of all things. An incomparable world-builder and one of America’s premier fantasists, the remarkable Jane Yolen begins a three-part saga as inventive, intelligent, and exciting as anything that has ever been produced in the literature of the fantastic. Brilliantly contrasting the “true” story of Jenna with the later myths, poetry, and so-called scholarship that her coming engendered, Yolen creates a culture as richly imagined as those found in the acclaimed novels of Ursula K. Le Guin. A truly magnificent work, Sister Light, Sister Dark takes fantasy fiction to wondrous places it has never gone before.

The Great Game of Gods is afoot. In a world on the brink of madness... In the summer of 1914, a young man of reputation beyond reproach awakens under police guard - grievously injured and accused of heinous, impossible murder. And in a strange, distant place... The youngest member of a penniless acting troupe has been taken prisoner by the loyal minions of a corrupt, vengeful goddess. For an ancient prophecy has divided the realm's ruling Deities into warring factions - a prophecy that mentions the crippled captive child and a youth recovering from inexplicable wounds in a British hospital bed. The game weaves through worlds and through dimensions as it has since time immemorial - a deadly contest of skill and manipulations that ruthlessly creates wizards, destroys human pawns and transforms ordinary men, women and children into something more.
