An innkeeper’s son takes a dead man’s armor and weapons, only to find himself enmeshed in a magical conspiracy. After his life is saved by a mysterious noblewoman, she promises him answers and more – but Falorn soon finds himself betrayed and on the run instead, chased by her father and fiance and other, unknown attackers.

Among the dead man’s possessions is a mysterious, otherworldly piece of ivory with an almost-living green lion on it. The card gives Falorn strength, but also brings him enemies, and it makes him a part of a mysterious fellowship that he doesn’t understand. The key to understanding – and survival – lies with Sera, the young noblewoman who saved him, and who he in turn rescues from her abusive family. But Sera vacillates between loving and secretive, between caring and betrayal – either because of her own cards or because of her abused childhood. And in a world where Falorn’s life is threatened every day, and in which the card he carries is drawing him into politics and war, he may not live long enough for her to tell him the truth.

A lighthearted fantasy romp with a serious edge, The Green Lion is a fast-paced coming of age novel filled with magic, fighting, love, and betrayal.

Caught in the center of a magical conspiracy, Falorn struggles to survive the machinations of forces that think he’s a powerful warrior – from a church that fears what he stands for to an immortal king to the woman who loves him and who has twice betrayed him . . . and who may be the only one who can save him.

Knighted for bravery in a battle Falorn only half-remembers, his newfound noble status is the only thing that saves Falorn’s life when he’s captured by a powerful archbishop. But that nobility also forces him on a doomed quest into the land of the Immortal King, where savage armies compete with powerful wizards to try to take away the magical artifact that propelled Falorn into this mess in the first place. In a web of betrayals and counterbetrayals, he finds himself more and more caught in love triangle between the woman who he loves but who has twice abandoned him, and the woman who seems to love him – but who he can never fully trust.

Wizards, monsters, pirates, murderous cults, and rogue professors all have a role to play in this fast-paced sequel to The Green Lion. But the ultimate role will be played by the sorceress in whose thorns Falorn is caught, and who set in motion the events that threaten to consume him – along with both of the women who love and betray him.

A lighthearted fantasy romp with a serious edge, The Golden Thorns is a fast-paced coming of age novel filled with magic, fighting, love, and betrayal.
