About the author:
Born in the shadow of beautiful Table Mountain, Aneza Lee's passion for writing led her to become not only a published fantasy author, but an editor too. As a child she believed each glittering dewdrop was a fairy diamond, and the stars were divine guardians who guided her along her path.
She has a great love of the written word and believes there is much to learn, and to teach, through this medium about human nature and the world we share. There is a magic in the air of the wild land called Africa where she was born and she tries to suffuse her writing with it.
She lives in a leafy suburb of Brackenfell in the beautiful Cape of Good Hope and she recently published the long awaited second novel in the Harpy Chronicles, The Namari Book II. Her poem, Dancing with Gypsies, was published in the Forever Spoken Collection by the International Library of Poetry and won the Editor's Choice award. Samples of her poetry are available on Writer's Cafe (http://www.writerscafe.org/SylvanHuntress). Other projects include Musings of a Bard, a poetry collection also recently published, Secrets To A Great Author Biography - DIY Guide - Smashwords July 4, 2013 and Dos and Don'ts for Indie Authors - DIY Guide - Smashwords October 7, 2013. She is currently working on a Dating Disaster's self-help guide and the third book in the Harpy Chronicles series - People of the Crow.
Aside from writing novels and poetry, some of her interests and hobbies include knitting, counted cross stitch, gardening, and all things gothic. She shares her life with her fiancée, her loving family and an assortment of furry creatures.
**Please note that she uses UK spelling in her novels, which differs slightly from US spelling.**
The Harpy Chronicles - The Namari Book I
Miss Aneza Lee
Kirin, the elfish daughter of an exiled priestess, befriends an enigmatic trader with a secret and a harpy on a quest to save her people from an ancient curse. Goddess-touched, Kirin's gift is a commodity in a war between two goddesses, in a world of magic and slavery. Harpies and elves must learn to stand together to triumph in war that threatens to destroy the entire realm.
Long ago, Kirin's mother defied a goddess. To save her from the debt she must pay for her disobedience, Kirin embarks on the long road to Illa Kalladûr, the elfish high city, to serve in her place. Upon her journey she must learn what it is to be a Namari. This gift of foresight makes her an invaluable commodity in a war between two elfin goddesses, one of whom will have her death, or her service.
A chance meeting with an enigmatic trader leads to an unexpected journey to the Black Lands, home of the dark elves, traders in flesh and enslavers of mortals, elementals and elfkind alike. The trader has a secret and is not who he claims to be, yet he has knowledge of the rare gift of the Namari.
Her path also crosses that of an injured harpy, a creature thought to exist only in myth, who is upon a quest to save her tribe from extinction. Together they must find a way to thwart a dark goddesses destructive machinations and save their homeland from decimation.
