Stormshadow by Stephanie A. Cain
Princess Azmei of Tamnen has a decision to make, and she doesn’t like either option: marry Prince Vistaren of Amethir–a man she’s never met–or let her kingdom’s war with Strid go on with no end in sight. Seeing no alternative, she agrees to meet Prince Vistaren, with the caveat that the marriage treaty won’t be ratified until then.
Azmei knows she is sailing into a precarious situation. After all, the correspondence she’s traded with Vistaren doesn’t guarantee he’ll be a man she can respect or love. She can’t stand the thought of seeing her generation decimated by the bloody conflict with neighboring Strid. Yet while she has sworn to serve her brother, the heir to Tamnen’s throne, Azmei isn’t certain this is the best way to do so.
What Azmei doesn’t know is that her new friend, Orya, is not who she seems to be, and that Prince Vistaren has secrets of his own. And on top of that, there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent the alliance between Tamnen and Amethir…
There is a storm on the horizon, and its shadow may grow to cover the whole world.
The Battle Dancer by Nick Wisseman
Everyone in Dzune had always assumed Tay could read fates, that her milky eyes let her discern what others couldn’t. Villagers brought gifts in exchange for her wisdom and treated it as the ironclad word of the Sun Father. There was only one problem: Tay couldn’t actually see the future.
Not at all initially, and only a little after her awakening. She’d had a true vision once, though, an image of her—armed and angry—safeguarding a strange man on a green hill. And now that man had come to Dzune.
Please Note: This story doesn’t fully resolve on its own—it’s meant as a lead-in to The Red Wraith.
The Battle Dancer won an Honorable Mention from the Writers of the Future Contest in 2014.
The Kinshield Legacy by K.C. May
All Gavin Kinshield really wants is the letter written 200 years ago by his ancestor, champion to King Arek—a letter he must earn by tracking down a thief. But when Gavin saves a woman’s life, what should have been a simple task draws him face-to-face with his nightmarish past… and the truth of King Arek’s demise.
