Genre: Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Elysium Books
Expected Publication Date:
Number of Pages: 348



Ascard power can strengthen, heal and create.  It also has great potential to destroy, enough to topple entire governments. Indigo’s country places strict limitations on the use of ascard so she must channel her talents into the healing arts or risk severe punishment.  An orphan from a disgraced family, trapped by her father’s treason, Indigo struggles reclaim her place in a society that has driven her into an abusive engagement.

Then a mysterious stranger from a neighboring country contacts her using ascard.  He needs help escaping his prison so he can bring an end to his emperor's oppressive rule or die trying.  His unshakable devotion to his cause and the passion hidden behind his cool arrogance move her to help him at the risk of being branded a traitor herself.

When the politics of society bring them together a second time, Indigo decides to use her growing powers to help him fight his war.  If only she dared fight for her own future with such passion.  Perhaps she can find the courage to do so by helping the man she has fallen for win his revolution.  She might have exactly the power he needs to succeed.

About the Author

Nikki started writing her first novel at the age of 12, which she still has tucked in a briefcase in her home office.  Despite a successful short story publication with Cricket Magazine in 2007, she continued to treat her writing addiction as a hobby until a drop in the economy presented her with an abundance of free time that she used to focus on making it her career.

Nikki lives in the magnificent Pacific Northwest with her husband, two horses, two cats, and one slightly crazy dog.  She feeds her imagination by sitting on the ocean in her kayak gazing out across the never-ending water or hanging from a rope in a cave, embraced by darkness and the sound of dripping water.  She finds peace through practicing iaido or shooting her longbow.
