In the Words
The Phoenix Grail
Alexandrea Morgan may seem like the quiet bookshop keeper, but as the only one who can see the Fae, she alone can work with Merlin’s forgotten apprentice to stop the Fae from leeching human lives. But when a childhood friend returns her quiet, false life is blown apart. Everything she had been told as a child was a lie, and now they are racing the Fae for the Grail.
This modern retelling of Arthurian stories will bring into question the truths about Camelot, Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table.
Lady Leaves the Lake
The Lady of the Lake may have gave Arthur his sword, Excalibur, but where did it come from? How was it made? Vivane’s story started long before she put her hopes in the young king and gifted her greatest creation.
When her rash actions destroy her family Viviane joins the Llefhin Smiths to learn and heal. But as she continues to flaunt her Smith art can she survive Oberon who will stop any who tries to change his world?
Sword in the Throne
Jamie, a med school drop out, discovers his hallucinations are Fae spirits stealing life. His childhood friend has spent her life in a quest to summon the Phoenix in order to banish the fae. He joins her, but along the way accidentally unlocks a traitor’s healing ability, who in turn uses it as a sign to prove they are King Arthur returned.
Amid navigating an unfamiliar world of new creatures and capabilities Jamie must learn to craft his own healing magic into a weapon. But can they stop the impostor’s crusade when the one thing they need most to stop the fae is the most sure sign of Arthur’s return itself… to draw the Sword from the Throne.

If the tales of King Arthur were true, given how much trouble and woe has come to the world, what crisis would it take for King Arthur to return? Tales of the Faerie Forge expands the Arthurian legend, not simply by retelling but continuing the story centuries later in modern times, as we approach King Arthur's return. While we follow our modern day problems we start to learn how the legend truly unfolded. The story channels a variety of influences: Oberon and Titania rule the Fae as Gods, Creator, and Fate. There is a heavy emphasis on life, rebirth, and the soul's journey, as the concepts of reincarnation are central to the conflict between the humans, who reproduce, and the Fae, who are reborn.
