Burden of Power

Burden of Power

It could be said that Terra Olson has achieved her dream of being an archeologist…

…if you were liberal with the exact details of her duty as Freya’s chosen.

Granted, she’s hunting down magical treasures. Doing it at the behest of an eccentric curator and the goddess herself to prevent Freya’s sacred belongings from falling into the wrong hands falls outside the job description she’d imagined.

Add in preventing the devious Villon’s organization from claiming the artifacts for themselves, and their efforts to silence her for what she knows, and “archaeologist” is a distant dream.

Fortunately, Terra has found a group of friends willing to help her with both learning to control her goddess-given powers and dealing with Villon’s machinations.

When a new treasure is discovered, it becomes a race to stop Villon from claiming it while unlocking its secrets.

On top of all that, the man who lost Terra’s good graces when he attempted to kill her has returned.

Her former idol is the one leading Villon’s mercenaries in their attempt to recover the artifact.

He wishes to right his mistake, and Terra wishes to return the favor. Only one of them can walk away from the inevitable conflict.

How will the Chosen of Freya fare against someone who has stolen the goddess’ power for himself?

with Michael Anderle

Michael Anderle (ok, weird talking about myself in the 3rd person) (1967-Hopefully a long time from NOW) was born in Houston, Tx. A very curious child, he got into trouble - a lot. What to do with an inquisitive mind when he was grounded? Read!

Ok, done with all of that 3rd person stuff.

In the first 20 years, I mostly read Science Fiction and Fantasy. In the last 10 years I have enjoyed Urban Fantasy and Military Fiction. With this background, I've been blessed with creating The Kurtherian Gambit series, a well-selling, and fan loved, collection of stories.

The fans have propelled these stories beyond my wildest imagination and they should get all of the credit for sharing with friends, family and occasionally the random person on the street. They are fantastic!
