Welcome to the Marshals of Rhea trilogy, a 'Gundam meets Game of Thrones' sci-fi epic packed with mech combat, techno-magic, and a helping of courtly intrigue:

BOOK 1: HOUSE OMEGA

Mechs, Machine-magic, and Monsters...

For over a hundred cycles, the Marshals of Rhea have defended their strongholds against the wastelands’ many dangers, from vicious raiders to mechanical beasts. To fight these foes they pilot Chargers: eighteen-foot mechs engineered by the secretive Armorers’ Guild.

At Clarion, the ancient stronghold of House Omega, anticipation is high as the Marshals gather for a major hunting expedition. But when disaster strikes and House Omega is left leaderless, it falls to no-nonsense Head Cook Xanthe to investigate. She’s not alone, however, and is aided by an unlikely group of individuals including a haughty young noblewoman, a world-weary Armorer, a fastidious bodyguard, and a whimsical assassin.

As they endeavor to solve this tragic mystery, they unveil truths about their world, themselves, and each other that perhaps should have stayed hidden—for what they ultimately discover will shake their techno-feudal civilization to its very foundations…

BOOK 2: THE POWER OF EMPATHY

One cycle has passed since the Siege of Clarion, and all of Rhea is supposedly at peace.

But the alarming events that sparked the siege have not been forgotten—nor forgiven—and the inhabitants of the Great Houses face a host of challenges:

Xanthe struggles to manage both her newfound authority and her inexplicable empathic powers.
Mycha continues to be haunted by the memory of her treacherous former mentor.
Biella, furious at her parents’ continued imprisonment, resolves to free them at any cost.
Voss is torn between feelings for Biella and loyalty to his new—rather attractive—High Marshal.
And Kane begins to question the distasteful deeds he’s forced to undertake on behalf of his House.

To overcome such tribulations each must confront old fears, enemies and dilemmas. But with scylla attacks getting worse, and the Pax already starting to break down, do they have the strength to endure? Or will they stumble, plunging their Houses—and Rhea itself—into chaos once more?

BOOK 3: THE FATE OF RHEA

Paragon, the mighty stronghold of House Lambda, is under attack.

Marshal Biella of House Chi leads the assault, eager to make Lambda pay for all the hurt they have caused her and her House. But House Lambda—led by the ruthless and cunning Lady Leonor—is a formidable opponent that will not be easily intimidated.

Far from the battle, Marshal Xanthe’s mysterious empathic affliction is getting worse. The technologically advanced Fraternity believe they have the means to cure her—but in doing so, expose horrifying secrets about Xanthe’s past that force her to question her very identity.

Meanwhile, Armorer Mycha leads House Theta to their new home in the mountains: the long-abandoned stronghold Penumbra. But danger lurks deep within the stronghold—along with an empathic discovery that, in the hands of an ambitious Armorer like Mycha, could alter the fate of Rhea itself…
