    R.S. Ebert, her entire novel is written eloquently and is very poetic.

    Time's Disease, Laurent In Chains

    “May your steel never break, and your blade never bend.

    May truth guide your sword, so your spirit shall transcend.

    When the veil cradles our souls and death shrouds us all,

    May you vanquish every inner demon, you dare befall.

    Burn like fire and part like water!

    Slice like air, Protector of Earth’s Daughter!

    Sealed in blood, each sworn promise made.

    Bound by words, even beyond the grave.

    So mote rules be bent, this Earth to save.”

    Time's Disease, Laurent In Chains

    A good long read, adult fiction, dark, mysterious, romantic, dystopian, untamed~ Available on Nook, Kindle, all eReaders & PDF for computers.

    When a young prophetess is rescued from genocide by a retired veteran, our prolific duo teams up with a sultry bounty hunter who falls for any heroic heart. Old comrades unite amid the chaotic collapse of a world power, and rebel armies form new alliances out of loyalty to the innocent. A princess learns of her true heritage while tribes waken powers of olden. A practitioner of occult science self-fulfills temple prophecy by resurrecting his father from the grave, only to realize the Free People he despises have become his only salvation.

    Many believe these inevitable events were written in the stars from the dawn of time, and prophets are merely observant students of precession who study repetitive patterns within endless successions of natural cycles. Others say it is impossible to predict legendary incidents which happened before and are destined to occur again. Civilizations have come and gone, leaving historical warnings carved on ancient walls. Unheeded and forgotten by myth, eras are reborn to rise and fall until there comes an age when every god's immortality nears its end…

    Set in a post-apocalyptic future, Time's Disease offers the classical allure of mythology with enduring messages very relevant to current events. Futuristic themes revolve around castle landscapes to create this novel recipe. Add a dash of mysticism, sprinkled by romance and topped by spatters of horror, to sup from hope’s cup amid life’s epic tragedies. Partake of this bold tale of action and consequence, as revealed by Illiana Rhea and told by the very characters themselves. Behold, this is Laurent In Chains.

    Look Inside at Amazon and read the first three chapters for free online.
