Facets of Fantasy: Three fantasy stories that take you to amazing worlds.
Karl Kallai is much more interested in searching for his people’s legendary artifact, the Golden Belt of the Kings, than in attending a dull political convention with his brother. But when Brynea, a young woman whose boyfriend seems caught in a palace plot, asks Karl for help, he finds he’s a lot closer to adventure than he believed.
The Amulet of Renari
Violet Vail has always been a bit of a loner. Introspective and shy, she’s happy enough to spend most of her time in her family’s vast, ancient country home, Vailsgabel. But when an invading people force her to flee Vailsgabel, Violet and her sarcastic cousin are thrown on the help of the last people they’d like to see—their ancestral enemies, the immortal Yurukozoi.
Every girl thinks an invite to a royal ball is a Cinderella-wish-come-true—doesn't she? But not for Alyce Lomlossa, who belongs to a minority group at odds with the young king, Lord Timson. Sherbans like herself are never noticed by the monarchy and an invitation from the king makes her suspicious. And it isn’t long before she finds this will indeed be an extraordinary evening.
