Available as a free download on Amazon June 1-5 Get your free copy HERE

Behind the scenes of our spinning earth are keepers of the elements who make sure that tornados don’t destroy cities, fires don’t ravage forests, earthquakes don’t decimate towns, and floods don’t take out humanity. They wrestle with the natural elements to ensure that the world keeps spinning smoothly on its axis.

Since the beginning of time, the Sun has been fading, and the light that shines on the earth is dimming, causing the elements to be more volatile and impossible for the keepers to control.

Now they must enlist the help of one man, Finn, to help them bring the light back to the Sun. The keepers war, the North Star steals light from the Sun, and the Moon is in disrepute. The end of existence is coming, and all the while the king, the Moon, Lir, remains silent.

An earthquake caused by Wren and Satchel’s ill-fated tryst brings forth a prophecy that sends the Unrest and the Delegation into a tailspin. Immortals on the earth must be abducted and hidden from the North Star’s greedy grasp.

Vespera’s fury erupts as the Unrest begins to splinter off from the Moon behind her back. Attacks that should be used on the enemy target her supposed allies. Seeds of doubt, betrayal and rebellion begin to sprout in the Realm of the Sun and the Moon, causing division, subterfuge, and deadly attacks.

An evil that was locked up centuries ago is unleashed and let loose on the earth. There are those who fight for unity, those who struggle just to stay alive, those who battle for control, but a few begin their secret plans for a revolt.


The Sword
By Mary E. Twomey
Book Three
Genre: Young adult fantasy fiction

Available for purchase June 1, 2012

What’s left of the Delegation fights to keep the Order with a man down, and the Unrest in hiding. Three keepers work tirelessly to safely harbor the restless immortals, maintain their elements, and counter Red Flame’s insatiable attacks. The Unrest’s light is dwindling as they remain hidden from Vespera on earth.

Close quarters and unstable power lead to tension and confusion as they try to find a way to be helpful to the Order without being taken out in the process.

Henry cares for Satchel’s son, and trains him to follow in his parents’ footsteps by being ready to defend the light at all costs. Lir’s body is located, and Vespera rages her search for more power when she cannot find the Sword of Secrets. Somehow Stella winds up in the middle – a girl without a friend suddenly thrust into the spotlight and forced to accept her lot in life, being the voice of truth when no one will listen.

Though she and the keepers try to fight for the light, it is inevitable that they all may soon lose themselves to the darkness.

Book Four
Genre: Young adult fantasy fiction

Available for purchase June 1, 2012

Light is being stolen, immortals are waking, wombats are untrustworthy and a dead body is rising. After a long time of wishing they could jump into the battle, the Unrest finally has their day in the Sun. Unfortunately, that day is filled with certaindeath.

Ash comes into his own and joins his parents to fight Vespera and Red Flame. Henry reunites with his own people, only to find that the lair will never be the same again.

Prophecies are unearthed, lives lost, and lines of loyalty blurred. Stella’s body begins to break down slowly, while Lake loses her immortality.

The sword of secrets fights to find its true owner, though none of the keepers can predict the sacrifice that will come.

Why Fantasy Fiction?

Why fantasy fiction? For me it is by far the most fun genre to write in. Can’t figure out how a character gets out of handcuffs? Oh, did I forget to mention his ability to make metal turn into cotton candy? He can also breathe a knockout gas at will and shoot hummus out his fingertips to feed the masses delicious Middle Eastern cuisine.

No, none of the characters in Saga of the Spheres shoot condiments out their appendages, but there is plenty of invisibility, teleporting, divining, immortality and some really big muscles to speak of. Fantasy fiction adds an extra layer of intrigue to any plot. If you’re writing a murder mystery, adding a few vampires allows for more plot twists. If you’re set on a love story, I believe a little book called Twilight proved fantasy fiction could be the genre for you.

Do you really want to write about the normal person down the street, or do you want an odd presence to follow them around? Fantasy fiction allows me to let my imagination go nuts. I can change the laws of gravity, invent whole races and even reverse death. It’s a heady thing to have that much freedom. I operate best in a universe with flexible rules. Doesn’t everybody?
