BEWARE of sentient spell books!
Lana’s plan to create a better life for the gnomes meets a deadly setback. The gnomes’ defeated queen has a sentient spell book with a bad attitude and instructions for revenge. Outsmarting the castle’s wards and booby traps turns into a daily challenge, and Lana and her companions hope that’s the worst they face. Unfortunately, the imprisoned queen would sooner die than let the gnomes rule themselves, and unless Lana and her allies can stop the disasters the spell book has set in motion, the gnomes may not survive long enough to enjoy their freedom.
Book 3, Runes and Relics, coming Fall 2017.
