This Week's Featured Author - Patricia Reding

Patricia Reding
Following her dream to study the law, Patricia (Trish to her friends) finally met her goal, then spent the next years trying to juggle husband, children, home and career—and to fit in time for her hobbies like, performing in musical dramas, gardening, cooking, reading, and . . . .  With her oldest having flown the nest and the two younger coming closer to doing so by the day, Trish turned her attention to new endeavors—specifically, to creating new worlds.  OATHTAKER, Trish’s first published work, began as a challenge, but Trish discovered along the way, the joy of storytelling.   Currently, Trish is working on SELECT, the first sequel to OATHTAKER (when not taking care of her home or practicing law, or trying to figure out how to create a world in which she can be in two places at once).

Patricia's Book: Oathtaker

                                                                              An Oath Sworn.
                                                                           A Struggle Engaged.
                                                                          A Sacrifice Required.

When Mara, a trained Oathtaker, is drawn by the scent of the Select to battle beasts of the underworld that were summoned by powers of evil to destroy the guardians of life, she swears an oath for the protection of her charge.

Armed with a unique weapon, her attendant magic and that of her Oathtaker cohorts, the knowledge of ancients and the assistance of a spymaster, Mara seeks safety for her charge from one who would end Oosa’s rightful line of rule and from assassins who endeavor to bring ruin to the land

As Mara puzzles to decipher ancient prophecy concerning her charge, as she is haunted with memories of her own past failings, she discovers the price her oath will exact.

To renounce her word would be treasonous; to fail, ruinous; to persevere, tortuous.

Abiding by an oath requires sacrifice.

Patricia Reding has created a wonderfully, enjoyable story filled with a spectacular array of characters that are so rich and vivid that you will wonder if you can still hear them talking to you even after you have finished reading this book. I hope that your heart will be just as captivated as mine was as you partake in this thrilling journey. Patricia Reding is a marvelous new author that you simply have to discover for yourself!  — Amber (Shadowplay)

I have but one question. . . when does “Select,” her next novel, come out?   — Donna.

. . . You feel like you’re right there with the main characters. . . .  I also like the theme of the book—keeping your word, no matter what, in the struggle between good versus evil.  I’m always a sucker for a strong, female lead character and Mara doesn’t disappoint. . . . I can’t wait for the next novel in the series!   — Kc2013

I was hooked before the end of the first [chapter].  There’s magic and secrets, prophecy and discovery, and a fierce heroine you can really root for. . . .  — Madeline
