Obedience. Duty. Conformity. Poise. As firm and unyielding as any iron bar, they form a cage more secure than a prison cell.
When the messenger came to the castle, everything changed for Amethyst, the only child of the king. Of all the elves in Lonwick, she alone was worthy to be the apprentice to the Master of Earth, one of the eight most powerful wizards on Erde. Now, she has the power to change her destiny, to take her life into her own hands and mold it into something exciting, something real.
Unfortunately, the world outside of her father’s kingdom had little interest in her continued survival. If she is to take her place as Apprentice, she will need all her wit and cunning to survive.
Life in the powerful Council of Masters is full of danger, from both within and without. Can she learn to navigate the treacherous politics of the Council of Masters? Is the power worth the price she must pay? And why are the orcs, trolls, and ogres suddenly rising up against the people of Lonwick?

Caren Naess

I am the bookworm daughter of an American father and a Norwegian mother, who grew up in Bahrain and Dubai going to a British school. I spent summers in Norway, and speak Norwegian almost fluently. We moved to Wisconsin for high school, and with the desperation of any teenager, I worked hard to fit in by losing that English accent. Moving all over the midwest after a BA in theatre, I began in acting in Chicago where I also co-founded a storefront theatre company. Then Ohio, where I continued acting, and designed, taught, and directed in the theatre department at Antioch College. After Yellow Springs, we moved to Dublin, Ireland where I taught improv to kids at the local community center. Next was London, and I retrained and began teaching English as a second language. It was in Washington DC that I discovered audiobook narration, and all my careers came together!  Now we’re back in London, which feels like home. A cultural mutt, whose love of language, words, and books began in childhood, led to a facility with accents, and shaped several careers. Perhaps this is why I’m drawn to memoir, coming of age, and origin stories of all genres. I am dedicated to bringing each book to life with authenticity and true to the author’s vision.
