Rebranding the Books!

Music by Gabriel Contè.

Book Four  Dejhan
is available NOW on Amazon

New Release!

Sun is back on Earth, but they are honour bound to return with the lost music of Galian di Wessene—if they can find it—before time runs out and the preternatural, evil fire is released from stasis. Their manager Jack Brand has other ideas: a new recording and a lucrative tour to satisfy Sun’s ardent fans and stymie the snooping tabloid press. Manon Valen keeps her secrets as she adjusts to the new reality of Earth, but Robin Wood has secrets too. Will Sun keep their promise to go back to Arethea? Can they even return?

Colin Clought languishes in Taihandria, tied by his secret varashti to the young Queen Periclea. All he wants is a quiet few months until his bandmates arrive to take him home. But serious trouble is brewing as the Antares Braggen manipulates his allies, political and magical, and builds a formidable war machine to march on Taihlos.

Curl up with a cup of kai for the final, explosive adventure of the rock band Sun.

Music and magic, the stuff of a great novel! This book is wonderful! The detail in the story line, the characters and the setting all make for a fantastic fantasy read! reviewer

There is something for everyone, with political intrigue, mystery, romance and humour. The characters are believable and likeable, and the story lines are intriguing. I found myself saying “Just a few more pages....” as often as I did when I was a kid (and yawning my way through the next day as my reward for staying up too late, just as I did when I was a kid!).

Like Daram before it, Varashti weaves a complex and engaging tale about the confluence of time and magic and the transformative power of art. The authors have succeeded in conveying through detailed, satisfying descriptions the immensity of their world while still drawing us into the intimate stories of characters so well fleshed out that they feel more like friends now to the reader.

In The Press


Blue Cat Silhouette

Hetty worked many years in a bookstore in Canada, and most of her wages went on acquiring as many books as possible. She has a degree in English Literature and certification in graphic design and loves tea. She has co-authored four books with P.J. Merchant, and they are quite possibly working on a fifth book, to be released in 2024. She lives with her husband and three cats in a small Canadian city where winter never ends, thus affording her ample time for dreaming up stories.

She studied English Literature at University and has always loved the magic of words put together to create worlds of the imagination.
