Meet Tama, an adept winter mage of Khione, a beautiful, dangerous land. Bloodthirsty monsters roam the frozen wilderness, and the unforgiving elements are a constant. Tama and her friends—Kachina and Masou—are on the cusp of completing their education at the temple where they have trained for the past four years. They need only to do one more thing: earn the Goddess Tira’s final anointing. But to do that, they must fight through hordes of corrupted creatures and endure the perplexing obstacles within Mount Orodani.

The road before them is long and bloody, and Tira’s evil sister, Malsumi, won’t stop sending her minions until she is strong enough to break free of her prison. Tama fights valiantly to defend herself and her people from these twisted monsters. But she will soon discover the real threat is much closer than she initially thought…

Excerpt 1:

The following is an excerpt from 

Temple of Ice 

“Begin!” said the headmaster. 

Tama had barely raised her fists before Hakan unleashed a barrage of kicks at her. She ducked and  evaded each blow, the air grazing the top of her head. She blocked a roundhouse kick with a raised leg and  slipped a cross punch. Immediately, she pounded his ribs with an uppercut, then grabbed his shoulders and  drove her knee into Hakan’s sternum. He grunted and staggered backward right before a conjured gust of  wind hurled him to his back. 

The students cheered. 

Hakan drew his knees up to his shoulders and sprang to his feet. He lifted the back of his hand upwards,  then drew both fists to his hip. 

A deluge of water surged out of the corner of Tama’s eye and curled around her body. She only had  time to gasp as the tushka punched his fists forward, blasting her with the water. Tama collapsed with a  grunt, her clothing drenched. Even as she stood up, the water rose with her in wavering tentacles. Like a  myriad of whips, they cracked against her skin from every angle. Tama winced and groaned.  

“Come on, Tama! You can do it,” Kachina called from the sidelines. 

She froze the liquid tentacles and summoned a wheel of air. Chunks of ice floated up on either side of  her as she accelerated toward Hakan. 

The tushka dove out of the way as she sped past him but wasn’t quick enough to dodge the debris that  struck him in the back. 

Tama circled around him, hurling ice in a rapid-fire staccato.  

The students in the other classes murmured among themselves.

Hakan ducked and twirled over the arena as debris whizzed past him. He caught two chunks of ice,  which he formed into arm shields and smashed through the remainder of her barrage. Tama was conjuring more ice when Hakan hurled one of his shields and struck her in the stomach. She  lurched forward and groaned in agony. Her air tread dissolved as she collapsed and rolled. The crowd gasped . . .
