In Milo’s Burden, a wooden carving is brought to life by the ancient and forgotten Lifefire. But the new-born woman, Malissa, has a terrible flaw: her only emotion is rage. It feeds the power that surges through her and will not let her rest until she holds the entire world in a vicious death grip. The crew of the Pride and the inhabitants of mythical Uamh struggle to thwart her plans. In a bloody battle, Captain Oprum is taken prisoner and all else is put aside to rescue him.
Milo, the young boy who animated Malissa, has inadvertently upset the forces of Lifefire and sundered its delicate balance. With his sister and her friend, and an old man and his mangy dog, he must travel deep within the mountains to discover the secrets of Lifefire before rage rules the world.
What they are saying about Milo’s Burden …
Set aside some time when you pick up Milo’s Burden, because you won’t be able to put it down. It’s totally engrossing! The story will also haunt you long after you finish the last page.
I just finished your new book and was captivated by the cast of characters, and the pace and energy of the plot. This book has an intensity and rawness…. What a page turner!
I finished reading Milo’s Burden late last night and let out a sound when reading the last paragraph… it was so unexpected and so brilliant! Bravo on yet another super enjoyable fantastical book. I read Milo’s Burden never knowing what rich words you would put to pen in describing the lands, its people, and what was to happen next. I love that in your writing
