Teleo is a retired soldier descended from Mages, who were cast out of power generations ago. After years of war and sorrow, he wants nothing more than to live a quiet life on his farm and work his stonemason’s craft.

His wife and daughter had been murdered during a war raid several years earlier and his young son stolen by the enemy side. He spent years unsuccessfully searching for his son and returned home broken-hearted. At the local castle, he comes upon a war orphan stolen by his side from the enemy and rescues him from abuse, adopting him as his foster son.

Teleo is working as a mason at the castle when he finds himself in the middle of a coup. This launches a journey to protect his new family, uncover the secrets of the ancient ways, and reclaim the magic of the Mages.

TW: Battles, violence, blood and gore

Heliotrope is an epic fantasy stand-alone! If you read as much fantasy as I do, you understand how rare that really is. The book focuses around a found family and was such an easy read, I found myself sucked into the story from the beginning.

The way that the author writes the characters makes them so easy to connect to. I became invested in them early on. The first 100ish pages were slower, as the groundwork of the story was laid out, but the story definitely pickup after that point. By the time I hit 100 pages, I was absorbed in the story and didn’t want to put it down.

This book was so easy to read and would be good for anyone that wants to dip their toes into the fantasy pool. I can say this with confidence since I read this around the same time I read The Way of Kings, which is much more complex. So I can definitely say that the writing is much more accessible to anyone that wants to pick it up.

Palmer has been writing fiction since she was eight. She received her BA in American Studies from Wesleyan University, with concentrations in Religion and Race Relations.

She currently works in Silicon Valley in the gaming industry and high tech. In addition, Palmer holds a certificate in Chinese Acupressure, is a certified solar panel installer, and studied Tibetan Buddhism with the 14th Dalai Lama.

She lives and writes in the magical redwood forest of the Santa Cruz Mountains, California.
