Turning Seasons
A glimpse of what you’ll find inside.
Samaria Twelve Houses Shifting Circle
In Samaria, angels raise their beautiful voices to intercede with the god Jovah on behalf of humans. Because their ancestors fled centuries ago from the violence of a war-torn planet, harmony is prized among all people. But sometimes the divine music of the angels is not enough to prevent conflict among mortals—and sometimes the god can’t even hear the angels singing.

Unrest plagues the land of Gillengaria as some of the twelve noble Houses whisper discontent about the king. Religious fanatics roam the land, persecuting and murdering mystics—rare individuals with magical abilities. To determine which Houses might turn traitor and which ones will stand with the crown, the king sends out a small band of four mystics and two of his most loyal soldiers, the Riders. The six travelers barely trust each other, let alone the nobles they encounter, but soon they discover unwelcome news: War is coming.
