Twice the swashbuckling!

The Lunari Mask

The coast of Mallow is a land of salt marshes and villages on piles and rocky coves. It is also the home of Peg Willowbawn, known affectionately as Granny Peg, an elderly mageborn with a sharp wit and a dry sense of humor when it comes to dealing with the mortalborn fisher folk of Dun Curragh and her mageborn great grand-daughter Moreen. But their normally calm life is about to be shattered when the Pirate Blackwater invades the Moon Isles and steals the Lunari Mask. Peg knows the mask has a history of evil intentions, but what neither she nor the scurrilous pirates of the Nightmare bargained for was an ancient evil being--a dark one's essence--stirring from the depths of the stone. Add to this mix the crippled young guardsman of the Moon Isles, Eric Brenwold, who seeks vengeance on Dall Blackwater for killing his best friend, and a mageborn first mate named Kenan who is not really happy being a pirate (and who catches Moreen's eye), but is unsure of how to escape his reputation, and you have a whole kettle of battle crabs just itching to tear each other apart, in Peg's opinion.

What's an old lady to do? Start kicking pirate butt big time and hoping to stop an ancient evil from rising again.

Laura J. Underwood knows how to deliver breathtaking fantasy adventure. If you're in the mood for swash-buckling pirates, evil bloodmages and the canniest wise woman since Granny Weatherwax, you're going to love The Lunari Mask.

Sabre Dance

Sergeant Adrianne Roche knew that service in the Queen's Own Sabres would take her to strange new lands. She just never expected to go there in a belly dancing costume.

When the Duchess Margrethe de Charleroi, third in line to the throne of Lilles, is stolen as a bride for the Caliph of Magli's son, Adrianne is ordered by the Queen to infiltrate the Caliph's palace (with the help of a belly dancing troupe) and rescue the kidnapped duchess before she can be married to Prince Samir.

The mission is soon complicated by a scheming vizir, a young dancer driven to desperation by her father's gambling debts, and a troupe mistress who expects Adrianne to, well, perform. Now, Adrianne must join forces with a magic-using monsignor loyal to the Queen's political rival in order to stop this royal wedding.

Melanie Fletcher has taken all the best elements of The Three Musketeers and The Arabian Nights to a new level, writing a rousting, rollicking adventure.  All for One and Fun for All!
