Fate

FATE is a spellbinding fantasy tale about one woman’s chance to save her people from the darkest throes of oppression.

Hope. Horror. Heartache. There’s a little of each fated for all of us…

 

Young heroine Asher must learn to listen to her instinct and face her fears if she is to save herself and her friends. She strives to set a new precedent not only for herself but for women everywhere, running against the tide of opinion and daring to challenge the authorities. Yet great sacrifices are made if the world is to be changed for good…

 

Mary Corran was born the younger daughter of an art historian and an Aegean Archeologist, which may explain the influence of Greek culture and history on her fantasy novels. Instead of pursuing an academic career, she decided to be a child of the seventies and travel overland to India and back. The need to develop a career sent her back to university to read History at Oxford, and marry a fellow student. After working in the City as an oil analyst for ten years, Mary went on to write the fantasy trilogy Imperial Light, Darkfell and Fate, which Venture Press will be publishing. Also available, a memoir chronicling her years of illness, Wasteland. She currently lives in Eastbourne, United Kingdom, where she is writing a new novel.

Imperial Light

Imperial Light is an intriguing and moving fantasy adventure. It follows Kyria on a race against time across sweltering deserts, from magical, god-touched temples to wondrous corrupt cities.

 

Following the tragic death of her mother and disownment by her father, Kyria finds herself an orphan and an outcast in the fishing village she once considered her home.

 

She is alone and estranged from her people. But in her difference lies her power.

 

An ancient magic is stirring. The land is in dire need of saviour. And one Lightbearer is prophesied.
