The Wielder Cycle is a series of 3 books that are currently only partially written. The covers are beautifully done by Joseph Calkins. He still owes me the final cover! They tell the story of Sheyna Namear (Lady Shey in the Sacred Land Saga) from when she was a small girl up until the War of the Oracle. It is a prequel series to the Sacred Land Saga. The first book, titled Wielder: Apprentice, was originally a novella written as a back story. I have now re-written it as a full novel. It will currently have little resemblance to the original. It will feature the same cover but will have a different ISBN and will be billed as the 2nd edition. The little novella will not correctly connect to the rest of the Wielder Cycle Series books. I have tried to have it removed from sale on all levels so it can be replaced with the far superior version, but I have been unsuccessful in having all copies removed. If you see Wielder: Apprentice for sale with fewer than 100 pages it is the novella and not the novel. Do not buy this copy if you plan to buy the rest of the series. I will not be working on the Wielder Cycle until I am finished with the Sacred Land Saga. To be honest, I probably will not release the novel version of Wielder: Apprentice until after the next, unrelated series I have in the works, just to give me a break from the Sacred Land mythos.
