“There is only one success—to be able to spend your life in your own way.”

Christopher Morley

Book 1:  The Warlock

Book 2:  The Wysard

Book 3:  The Wisewoman

by Deborah J. Lightfoot

Teenaged Carin has no home to go to and nothing to rely on but the whispered advice of a village wisewoman. When Carin takes that advice and goes searching for her place in the world, she falls captive to a quick-tempered wizard named Verek.

Lord Verek subjects her to a series of tests—some mundane, some magical—to discover who and what she is. No natural creature of his world could defy his enchantments as Carin does. What gives her the power to resist him? Where is she from? Did somebody send her?

As the answers come to light, Carin discovers that Verek plans to use her as an expendable weapon in a battle to save his world from plagues and pestilence. If Verek's scheme fails, lethal epidemics will overrun his world. If his plan succeeds, the dangerous wysard who stole Carin from her childhood home on Earth will die.

So will Carin.
