Oracle of Life

The Lords’ Gambit Series, Volume 1

by Katherine D. Graham

Genre: Dark Epic Fantasy

 

Six fallen lords. Three vengeful goddesses. And one mortal, damned to prophesy for them all.

An Exiled Oracle

Nariah, the Heiress of Ellonai, is dead. An exiled, desert-dwelling Doomsayer is all that remains within the shell of the powerful princess she once was.

A Heretic

She isn’t sure which of her visions her people hate more: the one where the three benevolent goddesses they serve have decided to destroy the world, or the vision of six lords falling from the skies to save them.

The World’s Only Hope

Stumbling across the very lords she’s been seeing in her visions for years, only Nariah’s accursed gift of Sight can aid the lords in their rebellion against the goddesses, and determine the fate of her world before it’s turned to ash.

But does she even want to save those who’ve wronged her?

A whole new take on mythological fantasy awaits in this thrilling dark epic by USA Today Bestselling Author Katherine D. Graham.

**This is not a standalone novel, though each book in The Lords’ Gambit series follows a different main character. Book two, Monk of Death, is available for pre-order now.**

**Only .99 cents! **

Monk of Death

The Lords’ Gambit Series, Volume 2

 

A life of service and deceit…

Kritinia’s pilgrimage was never supposed to end with Death. After living her entire life disguised as a boy at the lord of Light’s monastery, Kritinia’s sacred journey was to end with her official initiation into the order of Royal Warrior Monks.

Uncover a dark secret…

Finding the lord of Light’s capital city besieged, the unwitting monk stumbles into an eternal battle between the lords of Light and Dark, and at the mercy of the lord of Death himself. He knows the deepest, darkest secret of her lineage; a secret he intends to possess.

She never meant to marry a lord… or become one herself.

Caught in the crossfires of a war older than her kingdom and forced into a marriage with Death, only Kritinia’s ascension to lordship will finally put the bitter feud between Dark and Light to rest.

But can a mere monk, whose life is built on secrets, lies, and death become the lord of Life?

You’ve never read a mythological fantasy quite like this dark epic by USA Today Bestselling Author Katherine D. Graham! Dive into this world of lords, love, and life today!

**This is not a standalone novel, though each book in the series follows a different main character. Please check out Volume One (Oracle of Life) first.**

Inspired by traditional Irish Mythology, Mother of the River tells the story of a 17 year old girl in search of her missing mother when she stumbles upon a forgotten legend.

Ianthe was only six years old when her mother vanished and the strange statue appeared in the river near her home. Now, eleven years later, the statue stands as a memorial and a place where Ianthe often visits to tell her mother about her life. But when an old acquaintance returns to town and suggests the statue isn’t just a statue, the presence of a mythical creature comes into question, and Ianthe begins to wonder what really happened all those years ago.

With her best friend Fintan by her side, Ianthe searches for a lost legend and discovers fantastical dangers, family secrets, and the magic of Ireland. But finding the myth may not be enough to mend the past. And finding the truth just may threaten her future.

May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far- Irish proverb

Excerpt:

Mother of the River, chapter two excerpt

Ianthe slid a cup and scone to her side of the small table and slathered butter onto the bread while Dubheasa eyed her carefully.

“Well then,” Dubheasa said, thankfully moving on to a new topic, “when did we last see each other, dear? Do you remember?”

“Um.” Ianthe paused to take a bite of her scone. “Two summers ago, I think.”

“And has much changed since then?” Dubheasa asked, stirring cream into her tea.

“Besides growing a bit taller, nothing at all.”

“Well, I’m glad to see you’re still here.”

“Why wouldn’t I be here?”

Dubheasa sipped her tea and waited for Ianthe to come to some sort of conclusion, but Ianthe stared back, lost as ever.

“Well, the Scréch Sídhe, of course,” Dubheasa finally said. Ianthe couldn’t help but subtly roll her eyes, feeling a sliver of annoyance in her gut.

“Oh, right. Of course,” she said flatly. “How could I forget.”

“You still don’t believe in the Sídhe, do you?” Dubheasa asked, though she already knew the answer.

“No, I must admit. I don’t.”

“If you don’t mind me asking, why is that?”

“You told me the Scréch Sídhe would come for me after my mother disappeared, but it’s been eleven years. Do you really believe a magical faerie would need this much time to find a person?”

Dubheasa continued to sip her tea with squinted eyes before offering another question.

“Then how do you think your mother turned to stone?”

“Oh, this again?” Ianthe said, reminding herself a bit of her dad. “My mother didn’t turn to stone.”

“I’ve seen her, Ianthe. I know she stands in the river.”

“I’ve told you,” Ianthe said, dropping her hands to the table and rattling the teacups. “My father had that statue made in remembrance of her. It’s not actually her.”

“And yet, he never visits her to remember her.”

“N—no, you’ve got it wrong, Dubheasa. My mother disappeared.”

“And disappearing into thin air is a more acceptable explanation for you?” Dubheasa asked, studying Ianthe’s face.

“Certainly more acceptable than ‘cursed by a faerie’,” she said in a failed whisper.
