Description


In "The Twisting Flame", Carys must survive unimaginable horrors as she fights the corruption of the enemy. Abducted by a mysterious and brutal stranger, Carys is taken to Azkaelom and pushed to the very limits of her strength and endurance as she longs for freedom and fights for her very survival. As she faces the Lord of Azkaelom, she begins to understand the truth behind her abduction and comprehend the significance of the storm she must endure. In "A Single Spark", Lady Carys and her family were forced to abandon their aristocratic life in Taurova, creating a new life in the western land of Lund. They quickly became the target of dangerous people, and Carys was finally forced to hire the mysterious Ben to help protect them. As their friendship blossomed into more and her family's circumstances began to spiral, she no longer knew whom she can trust. When the unthinkable occurred and everything she believed was ripped away, it was too late — she had been caught in the dark net of their enemies. "The Twisting Flame" is a masterful work of fiction and as the sequel in the Rise of the Phoenix Series, it shares an exciting story that readers of fantasy will love. "I longed to be the woman I had once been, ignorant and foolish, but there is no going back...The spark that had flashed to life had become a flame, twisting my fate into its own form and life as I knew it was over." - Carys

About the author


Tayvia Pierce, the author of the stunning 'Rise of The Phoenix' series, was born in southern Alberta, Canada, where she lived until 2005. After completing high school, she attended college to pursue a career in tourism, having a love of travel and a desire to see the beauty of the world for herself.

She married in 2005 and moved shortly after, heading up to central Alberta in support of her husband's job. They had two children, but as a stay-at-home mom, she struggled to find her passion. During this time, she discovered story-based MMORPGs and loved the immersion of the roleplay community within these created worlds. The collaborative story-telling aspect appealed to her, and she became interested in the lore and history development of each world.

This hobby led her to befriend someone who dared her to use her love of storytelling to write a book, putting forth a challenge - he would write one too and the first one to publish would 'win'. This prompted her to finally put pen to paper and begin the process of writing a book. His death not long after his dare hit her hard, but a year later, another whom she now calls her Muse encouraged her to write another book, and so she began developing the world of Isirion and the Rise of The Phoenix series.

During this time, she also worked as a freelance copywriter, ghost-writing several children's books as well as eBooks on behalf of a handful of celebrities, learning the art of wordsmithing and the unique value of language along the way.

In 2018, she split from her husband and returned to Southern Alberta with her two kids. Supporting herself and the kids with a job as a medical assistant, she finally self-published Book 1, A Single Spark, in May 2019. She gave herself exactly 3 days of celebrating before starting to work on book 2!

Tayvia is currently working on acquiring her professional editing certification, initially intending to take only a few classes to become a better writer, but soon decided on a blend of editing and writing to build a career for herself. She currently works as a writing coach and developmental editor, igniting the passion for story-telling in others!
