Sometimes things are lost for a very long time...and then they are found.
Take Gracie for example, a woman who lost everything, her life, her family, even her name, but now she is a Cathalian warrior of Antecede blessed with powers, which aren't yet fully realized. Her elder and nemesis, Donavan, finally granted the former professor an opportunity to train a new warrior. Her joy turns to shock when she meets her great, great, great, great grandson, Henry, accompanied by his wisecracking best friend, Milo. Henry recognizes his long dead ancestor right away, and it doesn't take the Cathalians long to realize that this meeting was no accident.
Gracie and the warriors of Antecede soon discover that they aren't the only ones laying a claim on their new charges. Menacing enemies from the South and their hired mercenary assassin, Revilan, the Bowman, have also taken an interest. Come along with Gracie, Donavan, and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it, and along the way discover what else was lost.
read an excerpt...
Gracie hadn’t seen Donovan since he rendered her and her charges unconscious, except to sense him speaking to Henry earlier in the day. He appeared to be his normal, arrogant self then, but right now he looked a bit wild. He was truly splendid like an untamed avenger, and she was a little in awe of the warrior coming towards her. Again, it was unfortunate for Gracie that she wasn’t as quick as her little beasties and didn’t think to try making herself scarce. She had never mastered that skill as a mortal or as a warrior. Drama followed her wherever she went. She met Donovan’s stare head on, shoulders back.
He stopped, breathing hard, hands on his hips, not far from where she stood, and now she realized Donovan wasn’t just angry, he appeared almost unhinged, and something else, some other undefined sentiment, which he quickly tried to hide. She caught the emotion with her amplified senses but failed to decipher it before it disappeared. Her elder’s appearance perplexed and confused Gracie. He was pale, and it was no small thing for a man so bronzed to look like a ghost. As if on cue, the wind picked up upon his arrival, and his hair whipped around his face. Donovan held Gracie’s stare until she dropped her eyes because the residual fire in his unnerved her.

some personal "stuff" about C. M. Sage...
Invisibility. It just sounds so handy.
What is one thing your readers would be most surprised to learn about you?
That I’m really good with finance and numbers, although I love to write and be creative. The two don’t usually fit together, I think.
When writing descriptions of your hero/ine, what feature do you start with?
I usually get a picture in my mind. I think the physical feature that I start with are eyes. My favorite characters usually have a sense of humor. I think that’s important.
Are you a plotter or a pantser?
Mostly a pantser, but I do plot at night when I’m supposed to be asleep. My brain will just keep going overtime, and I’ll have all of these wonderful gems in the morning if I just remember to write them down!
Did you learn anything from writing this book? If so, what?
Yes. That I had it in me, and I loved writing it. And the characters and story will be a part of me forever.
