It is medieval times in the land of Morowak. Kings and Queens maintain sovereignty, and wielders of magic and fire breathing dragons are real. Nobleman’s daughter, Arabella Wallington, is about to embark on a journey across the kingdom to meet her betrothed. Stengar McKinnon is a titled soldier in the King’s army and she is assured a life of wealth and bliss. Arabella is herself a gifted war maiden, yet she follows her father’s orders and employs someone to protect her along the perilous crossing. She chooses a man named Briol, whose magical abilities are tested throughout their adventure, and an enigmatic bond forms between them. Briol realizes there is something unique about Arabella, and it is brought to light. A new unforeseen path now lies ahead. This journey challenges everything Arabella has ever known.

Journey Through Morowak is a sword and sorcery fantasy with mages, elves and other fantastical creature.
The main character Arabella , a war maiden is journeying home to meet her betrothed but she is far from ecstatic about this because it is arranged by her father and she is afraid that she would have to lay down her bow and sword and would miss all the adventures she had as a war maiden.
Taking her father’s admonitions to heart to hire a guard to ensure a safe and swift journey, she hires a mage and finds herself falling for him. Their journey is not without danger and skirmishes and this just helps to strengthen the bond between the two.
This journey is also about self-discovery for Arabella. She will emerge a different person at the end of it, a woman who knows what her heart wishes and is not afraid to choose it. She will discover new gifts and abilities which will bring new challenges.
I liked Arabella’s character, strong and skilful, she is a match for most men or creatures on the battlefield. Her sense of honour and duty to her father is admirable and she employs her tact even when she might have had cause to be tactless.
Apart from the romance, there is also quite a bit of action and we get to see Briol’s skill as a mage and I thoough this ability was pretty cool…or should I say hot!
If you are a fan of sword and sorcery fantasy, give this one a read!
About The Author
I am not your average gal. I didn’t grow up playing with Barbies or dressing in my mother’s clothes, jewelry or makeup. I drove my matchbox cars over obstacle courses, climbed trees, built forts, dreamt of owning my own horse, and pretended to be an elven princess. I continued to live my life on my terms, while staying true to my old fashioned values and respect. After completing high school, I took on a full-time job and put myself through college. In just under three years, I earned a degree in computers. I try to use that knowledge as often as I can.
In 2006, before I had even discovered my passion for writing, I married a wonderful man named Mark. Our love story is blissfully unique. We now live in Washington State with our three rambunctious boys, a beautiful chocolate lab, a bouncy min pin, and a tubby tailless kitty. I am as passionate about my books as I am of my family. This is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now.
