Welcome to Circle of Conspiracy, the second trilogy in the Artesans of Albia series.

In the Circle of Conspiracy trilogy, the Baron steps up his attempts to rid Albia of the despised Artesan craft.

He uses rumour to discredit Sullyan and the other Artesans, and does everything he can to disrupt the fledging alliance between High King Elias of Albia and Timar Pharikian, Hierarch of Andaryon. 
Sullyan suspects his involvement in the creation of the Staff but is unable to prove it, or to expose his plot.
The Baron possesses no Artesan powers, so there must still be a powerful renegade Artesan at large.
Sullyan can only watch in helpless rage as the Baron plays the trump card that will set Elias and Pharikian at each other’s throats and send Albia and Andaryon spiralling toward a war that could destroy both realms.

Conflict is coming …

Nine months have passed since Brynne Sullyan helped forge an alliance between the realms of Albia and Andaryon.
A fragile peace reigns as both sides recover from the events of the previous year. Then mysterious raiders strike Andaryon villages.
Attempts are made on the life of Albia’s High King. As Sullyan scrambles to find those responsible, unseen enemies threaten to pull apart everything she has worked for, including her marriage.

The alliance begins to crumble, and Sullyan finds herself caught between two monarchs: the king she’s sworn allegiance to, and the man she loves as a father. To betray either one would break her heart, but if conflict is inevitable, she must make a choice …

The second novel in the Circle of Conspiracy trilogy is entitled The Circle.

Here is the back cover copy:

The alliance is crumbling.

Driven to madness by the abduction of his son, King Elias declares war on Andaryon. Sullyan knows the Andaryans are blameless, still reeling from the abduction of their own prince and the subsequent collapse of the Hierarch, but Elias will not listen to reason. While he gathers his forces to march through the Veils, the real conspirators remain free to wreak havoc on both sides of the conflict.
Branded a traitor by her king, and with the rift between her and Robin widening, Sullyan embarks on a perilous search for the missing princes. Bloodshed is inevitable and innocent lives will be lost, but the war must be stopped. If she fails, it will mean death for both princes and disaster for the Five Realms.

Full Circle Thumb The third novel in the Circle of Conspiracy trilogy is entitled Full Circle.

Here is the back cover copy:

A fragile peace has been restored, but at what price?

Despite averting the destruction of the Veils and preventing all-out war between two realms, Brynne Sullyan’s troubles are far from over. Her marriage is in tatters, her military career sacrificed for the greater good, and her impending motherhood a source of anxiety rather than joy.  Fleeing the shambles of her life in Albia, Sullyan seeks solace in Andaryon.
Taran accompanies her, but even he cannot protect her from her ravenous inner demons.

Baron Reen’s trial looms and his conviction is by no means certain. Tad’s testimony and the capture of the traitorous Captain Parren may be the keys to proving Reen’s guilt, but Tad’s life still hangs by a thread and Parren has fled the Manor. Devastated by his wife’s betrayal and his own failure to protect Tad, Robin vows to hunt down the traitor. Whether he succeeds or fails, his quest for vengeance could be the undoing of them all…
