Years ago, sorceress Aetria’s untamed power caused a disaster on the battlefield. Temporarily banished for retraining, she has returned to the army to redeem herself as head of a company of novice mages. Under the command of her old nemesis, Adept Pleates, she struggles with her past disgrace and her still-uncertain control of her magical energy.

When Pleates assigns her to escort the army’s commanding general and his aide on a covert mission, Aetria sees a chance to prove her worth. To her surprise, she unearths a traitor’s plot and previously unknown secrets of the source of magic. At the same time, she discovers long-lost kin and encounters an unsuspected ally in the depths of her own mind.

Marge Robbins reviewing for Sime~Gen calls WILD SORCERESS “A tale of magic, intrigue, and enough plot twists and turns to keep even the most jaded reader of this genre spellbound and unable to put the book down until the very end.”

Sequel to the critically acclaimed Wild Sorceress

Co-authored with Leslie Roy Carter

Adept Aetria, while learning to control her wild sorcery, has defeated a pair of traitors trying to kill her, found a long-lost twin, and uncovered secrets of the source and nature of magic.

Now she continues her research while battling the remnants of the neo-Aggressor rebellion and integrating raw, untrained talent into the Sorcerer Corps.

Meanwhile, she discovers deeper secrets of her own family background, along with a surprising new foe and a destiny she never dreamed of. Furthermore, she learns that her “imaginary” dragon friend Rajii actually exists. But so do less friendly dragons. What does their agenda mean for the future of humanity and magic in Aetria’s world?
