Essence of Ohr:Warden's Reign

Orphans are snagged from their beds…

…used in the Warden’s dark experiments.


Those who seek asylum in the forest must survive the dangers of the night, when the forest trees uproot and roam free.


Fifteen-year-old Kole, with the help of his mentor, Russé, has adapted. He’s learned to tame the rampant trees and protect the orphans.


When one of the Warden’s mutated creatures discovers the camp, setting it aflame, Kole’s life is upturned and the refugees’ safe hiding place is lost.


Kole must convince the others to make a stand to save themselves—and all their people—from the anguish of being the subjects of brutal experiments.


But what chance does a rag-tag band of refugees have against the malevolent power and magic of the Warden and his vile creations?

Follow the adventures of Kole in the battle for his life and the lives of his people.

Essence of Ohr: Children of the Volcano (Book 2)

With the people cursed by a god—forever doomed—Kole enters their stronghold to seek the heart of the volcano.

Peace has returned to Kole’s city, yet day by day, the world dies. Only the gods can return balance to Ohr. Kole has already found one, Russé, his mentor. Together they decipher the cryptic map in Kole’s head to locate the others, but they aren’t the only ones searching for the gods.

Tailed by the enemy, the trail leads to a volcano in a forsaken land, with winds of swirling ash, toxic fumes, and creatures of living stone. Kole and Russé will discover why the grounds are rumored to be cursed, why no human has set foot near the volcano in centuries, and just how much grit they’ll need if they hope to reach the god first.
