About the Series

Tempest of Bravoure is a series set in the world of Terra. The first book told the stories of brave rebels who fought for the freedom of Bravoure. The second book was about coming home and all the challenges that go with it. It was about reunions with the people we thought we had lost, and it was about power, mysterious creatures, and a journey beyond the edge of the world.

Still on her knees, she took one last glance at the names on the marble headstone. Lucas Falco. Could that have been Kairen and David’s son? Deceased. Clarice Dallor-Falco. Iedrias’ daughter. Was this where the two lines had joined? Deceased.

A sharp click, followed by a pulsating surge. Ahna heard it right behind her head. The point of something hard almost touched her. She instantly froze. 

“Care to tell me what you’re doing here?” a voice asked with a severe timbre. A woman’s voice. 

Ahna spread both of her arms as a sign of peace. She had no idea what pointed at the back of her head, but she was sure it was dangerous. 

“I’m unarmed,” she said. 

“What are you doing here?” the unknown woman asked again, aggressiveness rising. 

The elf wanted to turn around, but she was too careful not to reveal her face. 

“I can explain!” Ahna quickly stammered. 

The hard point pressed against her thick brown cowl. It forced Ahna to lean over. 

“Wait!” she called. “I can explain. My name is Ahna. I’m a mage.”

The pulsations of whatever the stranger held became louder. 

“I come from far, very far away,” the elf desperately wanted to explain. “I used to know them, the names! You have to believe me.”

It was as if the woman had not listened. “Tell me what you’re doing on my family’s grave, or I’ll blow your head off!”

“Wait!” Ahna shouted in panic, then paused, recalling the woman’s last words. 

Her family’s grave

Ahna impulsively turned around, coming face to face with a metallic object of two tubes and a larger barrel. The object appeared to glow. The woman had blazing copper eyes fixed on the elf. She clenched the hilt of that strange weapon when she saw who Ahna really was. But her glare did not show fear or anger. Just solemn conviction. Ahna recognized these eyes. It was undeniable. In them, she saw Kairen Aquil’s fiery stare. 

“Are you a Falco?” Ahna simply asked, not knowing what else to say to save herself from an impending fight. 

The stranger’s posture softened, but her eyes still burned. “Who’s asking?”


“Why are you here, Ahna?” the woman pressed, her weapon still pointed at the elf’s forehead. 

Ahna lowered her arms before speaking again. “It’s hard to explain—”

“Try me,” the stranger interrupted.
