Castles in the cornfield provided the setting for Deborah J. Lightfoot’s earliest flights of fancy. On her father’s farm in Texas, she grew up reading tales of adventure and reenacting them behind ramparts of sun-drenched grain. She left the farm to earn a degree in journalism and write award-winning books of history and biography, including The LH7 Ranch (under name Deborah Lightfoot Sizemore) and Trail Fever. High on her bucket list was the desire to try her hand at the genre she most admired. The result is Waterspell, a multi-layered fantasy about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he'll have to kill her ... which troubles him, since he's fallen in love with her. Waterspell Books 1-4 (The Warlock, The Wysard, The Wisewoman, and The Witch) are now available in a boxed set of ebooks. The complete series is also an audiobook narrated by the English actor Simon de Deney.
Waterspell: The Complete Series
Making a place for yourself in a world where you don’t belong takes courage. So does moving in with a warlock. Especially one who is a cauldron of seething anger on his worst days … half mad on his best … who is thinking, perhaps, of killing you. And you can almost understand why he would do it. But you’ll fight to stay alive. Because maybe … just maybe … you’ve found the place where you belong: On his world, in his magic, saving the warlock from himself.
WATERSPELL: The Complete Series (Boxed Set: Books 1–4) tells the story of the lost traveler, Carin, who is drawn into the schemes of a hot-tempered, emotionally damaged wizard. Does he view her as nothing more than an expendable weapon in his fight to save his world from lethal alien plagues? Or will Lord Verek find himself wavering, when it comes time to dispose of his fiery water-sylph?
