SHATTERED JOURNEY is the first book in the sensuous, exciting fantasy series BLUE DEATH from New York Times Bestselling Author Susan Sizemore.
Song of the Diamond Sword seeks to free his people from thousands of years of imprisonment behind a magical wall. He sends sorcerers through fine cracks in the wall to snatch the souls of suitable victims to use in the creation of a weapon to bring down the wall.
A horrific magical attack from Song's sorcerer tears apart the minds, lives and friendship of two innocent children. Alek, the rich merchant's son and Socia, Princess of Altamura. Their minds connected by a thread of shared pain, the children set off on separate journeys in the quest to recover the missing parts of their souls. As the years pass, Alek's journey takes him into a life of drug addiction and mercenary conquest. Socia journeys take her into the magic schools of the Dead Lands and a quest for the protection of a god. All the while, the pair long for each other while Song continues the quest to capture their souls.
