Growing up during the centuries-long conflict between the empires of Egypt and Hatti, the young princess Istara is taken hostage by the King of Hatti to secure the loyalty of her father, the King of Kadesh to the empire. Soon her new life in Hatti’s glittering capital becomes all she knows. Bound in blood before the gods to Hatti’s unwilling crown prince, Istara, now Hatti’s queen-in-waiting, learns she will never be loved.
But the drums of war beat again, and when the scheming plans of Hatti’s king threaten the existence of all civilization, the gods give Istara a choice: to leave behind everything she knows to save mankind, or remain where she is, powerless, a token on the game board of kings. On the brink of one of the most brutal battles in history, she chooses to risk her life to deliver a message to the only man able to prevent the prophecy from becoming a reality–her mortal enemy, the Pharaoh Ramesses II.
Wounded, cold and hungry, she wanders in the battle’s horrific aftermath, and aids a powerful commander, who she learns protected her once, and has been bound to her ever since by a prophetic dream of his future. Despite his resistance, and Istara once more becoming a pawn of kings, they must confront an eternal love so powerful, not even kings, the gods, or death can keep them apart.
The Lost Valor of Love is the first book of the Transcendence series.

Hello! Nice to meet you! I am a Canadian, UK, and Swedish citizen living in Sweden. I grew up in the Canadian countryside with not much more than my imagination to occupy me and have been crafting stories ever since I could talk.
These days, I love to write about the complexities of love and one’s mortality. I tend toward sci-fi/fantasy in my writing because I love quantum physics, the multiverse theory and that time is just a concept. This gives me a lot to play with, and the freedom to explore love stories outside the framework of death and the constriction of linear time.
Altogether, since 2016 I have published five books. I am currently working on my sixth and have plans for my seventh.
My books tend to be quite meaty. The three books in the Transcendence series (of which The Lost Valor of Love is the first) are of epic length. The first two books are about 150k words each and the final book is 220k words.
I publish under the imprint Arundel House Press.
