The Legacy of Skur is as grim a fairy tale as one could want. Volume One begins with Fane’s quest of misfortune upon the mountain of Skur which ultimately leaves him imprisoned there. His sole companion has come from underground. And his only protection is a crystal talisman. When Fane’s brother, Kael, is unwittingly thrust into the care of Fane’s newborn daughter, he also gains possession of the crystal talisman. Yet when the talisman’s rightful owner comes to demand its return and holds Fane’s daughter for ransom, an impossible choice must be made. How much is Kael willing to sacrifice? More than he realizes. Fane’s daughter is the legacy of Skur. She’s four and a half feet tall, wields a sword yet is no warrior, claims the title of wizard yet cannot cant a spell, and of the two parents she never knew, only one was human. Her story has only begun…
I will have a review up of The Legacy of Skur: Volume One up later this month or the start of next month.
A maverick with a pen, Nevada author L.F. Falconer’s powerful, page-turning style of dark fantasy has been consistently praised as both “gripping” and “captivating.” Skillful character-based artistry fuses magic and the supernatural with reality to bring her audience a unique reading experience.
When she wants to relax, Falconer enjoys gardening (a true desert challenge), oil painting, and exploring the Nevada desert and old mining camps.
“I’ve always found magic in the written word. When I write, I don’t know that I embrace any particular genre. If I get caught in an inspiration, I tend to just run with it. To me, a great story is all about the characters. I love to read for character, and I believe I write that way, too.”
