“It had a good mix of intrigue”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Beverly H
I received an advance copy of this book.
Fantasy is not my typical genre of choice but this book pleasantly surprised me. It had a good mix of intrigue, romance, and some magic. The story line was fantastic, with twists and turns that one couldn’t see coming. It was well written and I am looking forward for book two to be released.

His first book, Making of an Empress is set in the year 263, similar to 14th century England, in the world of Saaveth. It focuses on the realm of Hulsteria, which consists of seven kingdoms and the change of the Imperial Crown, from the recently deceased Emperor Frederick I to his granddaughter, Stelaphina I.

Making of an Empress is the first book in the Hulsteria series, with several other books already planned.
