Errant Spark

Errant Spark
Elemental Trials Book 1
by Ronelle Antoinette
Genre: Fantasy Romance
How can you afford to risk it all for love when your life
is not your own?

They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but In

Egalion’s Imperial court, you can’t tell one from the

other…especially when they change at the flip of a coin. Behind the

luxury and splendor lies a realm of treachery where cloak-and-dagger

political maneuvering threatens to destroy the peace of two thousand

years.

Twenty-five-year-old Battlemage Jex Xander has a mouth that frequently
gets him into trouble, while in contrast, Enari Namelum speaks not at all.

When Jex becomes the target of a faceless curse-slinger, Enari, the girl he

has protected since the day they met, must now protect him. A string

of ritual human sacrifices coupled with Jex’s growing inability to

keep his feelings (and hands) to himself only serve to complicate

matters. Amidst the mounting chaos, passion and romance should be the

last thing on their minds, but life and the Goddess seem to have

other ideas.

In a world as enticing as it is perilous, love, danger, and magic will

collide, leaving lives irrevocably changed. The events of a single

summer stand to change the course of more than just the kingdom of

Egalion and the ones dismissed as pawns may yet prove to be the most

important players.

Errant Spark” is the hush before the storm, the last deep breath before

the plunge. The flint has been struck and it’s possible the whole

world might go up in flames…because love in the Imperial court is

as dangerous a thing as backroom politics and jealousy can be as much

a driving force as silver and gold.

Fantasy? Action? Romance? Yes! This romantic fantasy novel by Ronelle

Antoinette is a broad, epic, sweeping fantasy with more twists and

turns and ups and downs than a wild roller-coaster! The first

installment of the Elemental Trials series is one of those books that

really is so much more than what the blurb can convey. Described as

“surprisingly complex and visionary” by one reviewer, “Errant

Spark” will leave you mesmerized from the first page to the last.

Hailed by Amazing Stories Magazine’s Ricky L Brown as “a simple story

about interesting characters with just enough romance and magic to

make it work. […] Errant Spark is as complex as George RR Martin,

with a world that is well-suited for conniving and cavorting. Rest

assured, there is plenty of sex and violence, but not as raw and

stabby as the aforementioned works. It’s more like a big kid’s

version of a fairy tale.

Flash Point
Elemental Trials Book 2
A 2017 Book Excellence Award finalist in fantasy
Scandal will shake foundations.

A night of careless passion leaves Battlemage Jex Xander and Adept

Enari Alycon in a precarious position. Long-time lovers they might

be, but the Imperial ambassador and the daughter of Egalion’s High

Mage have rather public roles in the court—whether they wish it or

not—and scandal couldn’t come at a worse time.

Treachery will tip balances.

When a hostile kingdom reluctantly agrees to parley, the fate of

two-thousand years of peace is on the line. In the midst of

negotiations, Enari becomes the target of one of the Greater

Maelstrom. She and Jex must race against time to save her life and

that of her unborn child. What happens when an earth-shattering

secret, a demon bent on destruction, and a kingdom teetering on the

brink of war collide is anyone’s guess.

Choices will have consequences.

The decisions of a few will determine the fate of many, and who or what

will remain standing in the end is still uncertain. Hearts and lives

are on the cusp of irrevocable change…and not necessarily for the

better.

And secrets? Those will change everything.

Ronelle Antoinette lives in western Colorado with her husband, two cats, and

one dog-who-believes-he’s-a-person. While she is a mother of none,

she’s an auntie to what should qualify as a small army. She is an

admitted caffeine addict, chocoholic, and hopeless romantic who has

carried on a passionate affair with the genre of fantasy since she

was old enough to read ‘chapter books’.

Ronelle dabbled in creative writing for many years before making it a career.

(She even considered it as a major in college, though she ended up

getting a Bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology.) She published

her first novel, Errant Spark, in July of 2016.
