Lita Burke is the Author of Wrath: Prequel to Tredan’s Bane
Wrath has a mysterious, magic filled, creative and intriguing storyline. I found myself immediately drawn to the relationships between the characters and wanting to escape into this fantasy world....
By: WR Potter
A charm hidden in a shipping box brings Tredan’s disgraceful past to his door.
Retired Enchanter Tredan and his wife Lanith, magical curio merchants in the seaside town of Isor, have been model citizens for years. But Tredan has harbored a terrible secret. As the victim of a Church-induced spell, he created a journal with spells to enslave the Enchanters’ magical essence to the Church.
Enchanters generate the essence powering everything in Tredan’s world. The Church has long resented the Enchanters’ exclusive control over essence. The head Church magician, His Divine, is determined to acquire Tredan’s journal and take the Enchanters’ power for his own.
With Lanith out on an errand for the morning, Tredan opens the box containing an Enforcer’s compulsion charm. This Church magician will stop at nothing to collect Tredan’s journal for His Divine. The ensnared Tredan must battle the Enforcer’s superior magic and keep the journal safe. Tredan must also find a way, even if he must enlist the help of the dead, to warn an unsuspecting Lanith before she returns home and falls prey to His Divine’s wrath.
About Lita Burke
I'm an indie author of fantasy fiction. I'm an avid reader and enjoy downloading titles by new authors onto my Kindle. I work a day job and write my novels early in the morning before the day clutters up my brain.
I've written fantasy fiction since I was 10 years old. As a teenager, I kept a daily journal where I recorded my observations of life and my place within it. As an introvert, it puzzled me how others could be so outgoing and cool (which I wasn't-I was a geek before it was popular).
I wrote my first novels about the magical world ("Sye") in Wrath and Tredan's Bane when I was in college. These early novels were the coming of age explorations of a young Enchanter in the Schools of Magic. The topic of these early stories isn't surprising in hindsight, since this mirrored my own experiences at the time.
Jobs and family have filled the days since college. I've written novels about other wizards, a woman-in-jeopardy thriller, and many non-fiction works for my day jobs. I sought to improve my writing craft during this time. The process is read, write, and hone. Then repeat.
Over these long years, Sye still whispers to me. With the new opportunities of Ebooks and indie publication, I'm denying the words of the Sye Enchanters no longer. I'm their humble scribe. Here are their stories.
