Talin is heir to a throne that governs worlds where technology was deliberately destroyed, outlawed. On Gaea, the existence of technology is so far in the past that it has become religion and humans now thrive in their medieval lifestyle alongside the only indigenous life-forms remaining: the lamkee. But when technology suddenly re-surfaces, a cold war over control of this Ancient legacy ensues between the secular rulers of the Principality and the holy men and women of the Logen who control the Artifacts of the Ancients. Only Talin realizes that there is more at stake than mortal power. When the lamkee lead him to the secret of the Ancients, the Logen respond with a war of epic proportion. To save his world, Talin must destroy his sister, ally with a friend gone rogue and stop the Logen before their bid for power reduces the last hope of humanity to the black ash of their mother planet, Erebis.

Barbara E. Hill is a life-long reader and writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy. She launched her writing career when she was 7 years old with her short story “Petunia Potapetal.” After completing this seminal work in first grade she took a short break to embrace puberty. It took a while to sort it all out, as these things do, but she prevailed. Barbara began writing her first full-length novel in her 10th grade algebra class and has never looked back. She received her B.S. in Organismal Biology from the University of Kansas and went on to finish her M.A. in Creative Writing in Science Fiction under the direct tutelage of James Gunn at the University of Kansas in the early 90's. Barbara lives with her husband in historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania. They live in an antique stone farmhouse that boasts no less than 6 ancient ghosts with very progressive thoughts on how to live with humans. Among other things, this paranormal situation creates a bubble of magic that seems to be a beacon to any critter that needs human intervention. It usually means food, shelter and ridiculous veterinary bills. This modest but charming horse farm is Barbara's dream home and when she is not writing or deep in the weeds of her consulting work, it fills the majority of her free time since she is addicted to her horses, all manner of fauna and the magic of the outdoors. She rides her horses whenever she can, loves to figure skate, and is passing fair at gardening. Barbara can, on occasion, be found doting on her son when he comes home from college to do laundry and she dabbles in the kitchen in order to keep up with her culinary-school trained husband. She began NobleFusion in the dawn of 1994 and holds the expanded collective as her favorite authors and the Principle Founders among her closest friends.
