Resistance
(Ilyon Chronicles - Book One)

“Don’t you know? Animals like you have no soul.”

Could God ever love a half-blood all of society looks upon with such fear and disdain? Jace once believed so, but when a tragic loss shatters the only peace he’s ever known, his faith crumbles as the nagging doubts he’s tried to put behind him descend on his grieving heart. With them come the haunting memories of the bloodstained past he longs to forget, but can never escape.

Taken from home at a young age and raised to serve the emperor, Kyrin Altair lives every day under a dangerous pretense of loyalty. After her unique observation skills and perfect memory place her into direct service to the emperor, Kyrin finds herself in further jeopardy as it becomes increasingly difficult to hide her belief in Elôm, the one true God.

Following the emperor’s declaration to enforce the worship of false gods under the penalty of death, many lives are endangered. But there are those willing to risk everything to take a stand and offer aid to the persecuted. With their lives traveling paths they never could have imagined, Jace and Kyrin must fight to overcome their own fears and conflicts with society as they become part of the resistance.

The King's Scrolls
(Ilyon Chronicles - Book Two)

Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor's persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance--not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.

Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia's last surviving copies of the King's Scrolls--the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican's men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.

When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy's triumph?

Half-Blood
(Ilyon Chronicles – Prequel Novella)

The gasps and murmuring grew. Though some were hardly more than whispers, clear words reached Jace’s ears—dangerous, monster, animal, soulless. He tried to back away from their accusing eyes, but the collar pulled hard against his throat and held him in place.

For all his years as a slave, Jace has known nothing but the hatred people hold for his mixed blood—one half human, the other half the blood of a race considered monsters. Always, he is the outsider and quickly learns it is better to keep to himself. But, when his volatile ryrik blood leads him to do the unthinkable, he is thrown into a world of violence and bloodshed.

Forced to become a gladiator, Jace finds more and more of his heart dying as his master works to break down his will not to become the monster everyone believes he is. When a stranger interferes with his master’s harsh punishment, Jace’s world is upended yet again. But with it comes the possibility of hope that has long since died. Could the man possibly hold the key to escaping the hopeless darkness that is Jace’s life? Is there such a thing as life beyond the cruelty of slavery?

See where Jace’s story all began . . .

  15. Reading Samara's Peril right now. Haven't finished it yet but just as good as the others. I really love how Jace is finding who he is. Can't wait to finish it! Don't want to give a spoiler alert so just going to say the scene where Jayce confronts James at the gate was awesome!

  18. Hi Jaye. I am a church librarian and am putting your series in our library. I'd like to know where to place Half Blood on the shelf. Should it go after Book 2? My readers are very good about reading books in order and depend on my classification on the spine label I attach. Please advise when you can. Thank you!

    1. Hey! Thanks so much for including Ilyon in your church library! I would say that even though it takes place before any of the other books, Half-Blood would best be read right after Resistance (Book 1). I mostly refer to it as Book 1.5. ;)

  19. I've only read the first book so far but I'm going to order the next three books like tonight lol. Your first book though was AWESOME, you developed the characters so well and to me characters can make a good book great. I'm actually shocked that your books haven't got more attention, after reading the first book and the awesome reviews on the next three, I think these books rival some of the best fantasy out there. I also couldn't find your books on iBooks which surprised me.
