The Terra Trilogy

Terra Incognita Cover 6x9 with map - ecover 200-300TERRA Incognita  $14.99//$6.99 e-book

Karen L. Abrahamson

A ruined city. Marauding bands of men. A flooded, poisonous world and an old magick carried in Terra’s precious blood.

In Terra Vargas’ dystopian city, Couver, society clings to civilization at the edge of the Coastal Mountains and on the small off-shore islands. In the mountain above the city a massive refugee camp overflows with hordes of displaced people – the D.P. – who escaped the floods, earthquakes and volcanic activity that destroyed most of the Pacific Northwest of North America. Terra hates the D.P. who killed her mother. She haunts the small coves and islands rescuing injured animals left behind by the never-ending D.P.

The arrival from India of a strange young man with a prophecy, and Terra’s discovery of a family savagely murdered by rogue D.P., set in motion an adventure that dredges up old horrors and powerful old magic. For Terra’s grandfather holds the key to how Couver survived when the rest of the Pacific Northwest died. That key rests in his bloodline – a bloodline Terra shares.

But the stranger’s prophecy came with a duty – to destroy the carriers of this bloodline before they destroy the world.

In 1432 Portugal, Lianna Reinel lives with her aunt and uncle in a secret enclave of mysterious beings called Cartos.

Their arrogance led to a cataclysm, the end of Cartos civilization, and the human racial memory of demons. It also led to a Cartos Edict against the use of their magick.

Lianna’s forbidden love for a human boy, Gil Eannes, and the arrival of Prince Henrique of Portugal, lead to Gil’s banishment on a deadly journey to the end of the earth. Left behind to marry the Prince, Lianna must choose between losing Gil or awakening old magick and its consequences: Fire. Water. Pestilence.

And lost love.
