Description


In the world of Isirion lives Lady Carys, the pragmatic middle child of an aristocratic family, who is the very essence of resilience and devotion. As she comes forward to share her story, the world will soon learn that truth isn't what it seems, and that she isn't the villain the world claims she is, but a fierce protector of her loved ones.

When her family, haunted by rumors of murder and corruption, is forced to flee to a new land in search of a fresh start, they discover that a simpler life doesn't guarantee safety. Shadows of danger loom large in their newfound haven, and the specter of their mother's tragic death lingers in the air. As they attempt to rebuild their lives amidst the mounting chaos, a mysterious stranger offers his aid.

Little do they know, a greater evil swirls around them, threatening to engulf their world in a tempest of unimaginable darkness, using Carys in their schemes. 'A Single Spark' is an enthralling tale of courage, loyalty, and the unwavering determination to protect those we love, even when faced with the most insidious of foes.

About the author


Never dare Tayvia Pierce to write a book, because she'll do it just to prove she can. This was where Tayvia, the imaginative force behind the captivating Rise of The Phoenix series, got her start. Hailing from Southern Alberta, she spent her early years trying to find her place in this world, starting off with a career in tourism, though soon realized that wasn't where her passion lay. In 2005, a new chapter of her life unfolded as she exchanged vows and relocated to central Alberta where her and her husband settled into their new life together. Welcoming two little bundles of joy, Tayvia embraced the role of a dedicated stay-at-home mother, yet still wrestled with finding her purpose in life. It was during this transformative period that she stumbled upon story-rich MMORPGs, and she reveled in the immersive tapestry of the roleplay community in these virtual worlds. The collaborative art of storytelling resonated deeply, kindling her fascination with immersive storytelling, fanned by the lore and historical intricacies of these worlds. A fateful friendship would alter the course of her creative journey forever. Encouraged by a good friend, he dared her to a race to write a book and publish, and so she embarked on the monumental task of crafting her first book. Though met with heartbreak at the untimely loss of her friend, Tayvia had found her passion and purpose. A year later, inspired by a new Muse, she delved into building the world of Isirion and the enthralling Rise of The Phoenix series. In 2018, a new chapter beckoned as Tayvia embarked on a solo journey, returning to her roots in Southern Alberta with her children. Balancing the responsibilities of a medical assistant and a single parent, she achieved a milestone by self-publishing Book 1, "A Single Spark," in May 2019. Ever the avid learner, Tayvia achieved her certification as an editor in 2020. What began as a quest to enhance her writing skills evolved into a harmonious blend of editing and writing, shaping a career path uniquely her own. In 2023, Tayvia became intrigued by the horror and began dabbling in all things supernatural and creepy and is excited to stretch her writing skills into this new realm of writing. With her talent for storytelling and dedication to the craft, Tayvia Pierce is an author to watch.
