The Eyes of Tamburah

Doesn't that title sound like a fantasy book? In fact, it's my NEXT book and the start of a new series titled Archives of the Invisible Sword.  Book 1, The Eyes of Tamburah is coming out on June 17, 2019 in Australia/New Zealand! Isn't the cover fantastic? It's perfect - really perfect.

I've no idea when it'll be out in the US/UK/Canada/etc... Still waiting on news. See here's the publisher for all my other novels (except NTS), Harlequin decided not to publish anymore of my new books. Except the Australian office - they believed in me and bought both my new series - a fantasy one and the SF one! Which was wonderful and is why I have publication dates for Australia and New Zealand, but not for the other countries. I'm shopping the series around to other publishers and hope to get some interest. I tried to find a home for Navigating the Stars without luck so that's why I did it myself! If I can't find a home for The Eyes of Tamburah, I'll do that myself as well.

Here's a cover blurb for the story:

Treasure hunting has never been more dangerous... Tomb Raider meets Poison Study! [gotta love this line ;)]

"He thinks you are the thief..."

Shyla is a researcher who resides in the underground desert city of Zirdai, which is ruled by the wealthy Water Prince and brutal Heliacal Priestess. Even though Shyla is sun-kissed - an outcast, considered cursed by the Sun Goddess - she is still renowned for uncovering innumerable archaic facts, lost artefacts, ancient maps, and obscure historical documents. Her quiet life is about to change when Banqui, an archaeologist, enlists her services to find The Eyes of Tamburah: legendary gemstones that bestows great magic to its wielder. These ancient objects can tip the balance of power and give whoever possesses them complete control of the city.

But chaos erupts when The Eyes are stolen soon after they're found - and Shyla is blamed for the theft. Forced to flee, with the Prince's soldiers and the Priestess' deacons on her trail, Shyla must recover the jewels and clear her name. A quest that will unearth secrets even more valuable than The Eyes of Tamburah themselves...

For those of you in Australia/New Zealand, here's a link to pre-order links for a bunch of venues!

  1. Will this be available through The Book Depository?

  2. No one wanted Navigating the Stars?!? What?!? It was a breath of fresh air. It was so different and it could go so many places. I really enjoyed it. This new book sounds great too. The US publishers should realize a good thing and get on board.

  5. Looooooved this Book !! Brilliant read.......even my daughter loved it as well !! We can't wait for book 2.....and yes, us Aussies know a good author !!! hehehehe ;)

  6. I loved Navigating the Stars! I was actually searching for a copy of the Eyes of Tamburah that led me here. I'm purchasing it along with Chasing the Shadows now. I have an entire shelf of your work. I love everything you've written so seriously screw them for not picking these series up!

  7. First, let me say that you are my absolute favorite author. I own and love literally all of your books (though, as a glassblower, it goes without saying that the Glass Series is my favorite). I was glad to get my hands on a copy of The Eyes of Tamburah. After reading it, I was wondering why it was only an Australian release! It had such a compelling heroine (like always) and it was so exciting to learn about a totally unique landscape like the one you've created here. This harsh, deadly desert and the complex cities hiding beneath it are very different from the settings in any other series by you and I loved that! You really have such an incredible way of building worlds and I'm so excited for book two.

  8. This book is excellent, highly recommend! So original and I love the strong female lead!
