Chronicle of Destiny book cover

Line by Lion Publications

January 3, 2014

Genocide. So marks the history of the Chronicle race. The populous Magi erased their more powerful cousins from the face of Lucksphere one thousand years ago, and any Chronicles discovered in the time since are murdered on sight.


Tariah Chronis is a Chronicle.


Her parents' love and a crafty disguise by a sympathetic member of the Kin race got her past puberty. Getting to adulthood hinges on her control of her emotions. When those emotions are finally released, her identity is revealed and her destiny secured. Now she is on the run, following the map buried within the lines on her body that will lead her to her other half: a Fury.


Dominic Whisperer is a Fury.


He has lived three centuries waiting for the day he will die. A Fury always feels the birth of their Chronicle, and they always feel their death. A Fury whose Chronicle dies will suffer endlessly until put out of their misery. Twenty years ago, Dominic put his affairs in order and prepared for that day.


It didn't come.


Now Tariah and Dominic will have to fight for their right to live, and to do it, they might have to save the very world that wants them dead.

Chronicle of Summer book cover

Line by Lion Publications

February 14, 2014

Nine years have passed on Lucksphere since the devastating battle that shattered millennia of beliefs, yet nothing has changed. Chronicles are still murdered on discovery for fear that the Black Magi Elite might find them first. As far as the Magi know, Morgan and Tariah Chronis are the only Chronicles to make it past puberty.


They’re not.


The four Chronicle children that Morgan sent away for safety are now becoming adults. Kelsey Renaire is a fiery Master Weaponsmith with often more sass than sense. Roman Arequo is an aloof and airy farmer who dabbles in glass carving. C.J. Daragon is a gentle weaver who creates beauty from soil and sand. Jayda Lakemore is a gifted doctor whose watery talents mend all but the most terminal injuries. All live hidden as Master Magi. None know what they really are.


All of that is about to change.


As the Elite rise again and strike out in ways that threaten to tear the land to pieces, the Chronicles of Lucksphere and their Furies are going to have to join forces to save not only themselves, but the Magi and Kin as well. If they don't work fast, this summer will be the last for Lucksphere. Will love finally defeat hate?

Want a chance to sample some of the delicacies of Lucksphere? You don't need to leave your kitchen for that! Here are some of Tariah's favorite recipes, sure to keep those in your life happy (be they adult or child).

Cactear Sangria

Lacking access to the blue and yellow fruit from which this takes its name, you can mix some more Earthly delights to get a similar flavor. (Yes, it's alcoholic, but you can substitute sparkling water or club soda for the wines to make a non-intoxicating version.)


  • 1 one pint of strawberries

  • 1 small peach

  • 1 medium mango

  • 2 kiwis

  • 2 cups of cranberry juice

  • 1 quart of tropical V8 Splash

  • Packet of unsweetened black cherry Kool-Aid

  • 6 tablespoons of strawberry syrup

  • (Optional) Soupçon of red dessert wine

  • 1 bottle of sweet white wine


Use a processor to blend all of the fruits, cranberry juice, syrup, and Kool-Aid. Poor into a bottle with a lid. Chill in the fridge for at least two hours. (Can be made the night before.) Freeze some of the mix to make ice cubes to keep the drink cold at the party. Add the V8 and wine and stir well before serving.

Sweet Bread Bites

A favorite among kids and adults alike, sweetbread is a staple on every Lucksphere table. This version with powdered sugar dusting is perfect with hot tea. (Sweet tea if you're a sugaraholic like our Kin friends.)


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature

  • 1 2/3 cups white sugar (Tariah says for an even sweeter kick, you can use brown sugar.)

  • 5 eggs, room temperature

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 3 tbl ground almonds

  • 1 tsp rosewater

  • 1 tbl powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F . Grease one 9-inch tube pan or a mini cupcake/muffin pan.

  2. Sift together flour and salt; set aside.

  3. Beat butter in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy; it should be noticeably lighter in color. In a separate bowl, beat sugar and eggs together until doubled in volume. Mixture should be thick and lemon-colored.

  4. Add sifted flour and salt gradually to the egg mixture, mixing until fully combined. Fold in creamed butter and mix thoroughly.

  5. Divide batter into two equal parts. Into one part, add the vanilla extract and the ground almonds. To the other part, add the rosewater and the red food coloring. Spoon batters alternately into the prepared pan.

  6. Bake in preheated oven until a cake tester comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cake cool for 15 minutes; then remove from pan to cool completely. Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving.
