Book 1 – The Singer of All Songs (2004)
Calwyn has never been beyond the high ice-wall that guards the sisters of Antaris from the world of Tremaris. She knows only the rounds of her life as a novice ice priestess, tending her bees, singing her ice chantments, and dreaming.
But then Calwyn befriends Darrow, a mysterious Outlander who appears inside the Wall and warns of an approaching danger. To help Darrow, to see the world, and perhaps to save it, Calwyn will leave the safety of the Wall for a journey with a man she barely knows–and an adventure as beautiful and dangerous as the music of chantment itself.
Book 2 – The Waterless Sea (2005)
The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Singer of All Songs draws readers even deeper into the magical world of Tremaris — and presents a temptation Calwyn may not be able to overcome….
The second novel in the captivating Chanters of Tremaris trilogy follows Calwyn and her friends to the desolate Merithuran Empire. As they search for a group of kidnapped children who have the gift of chantment, they must negotiate both the unforgiving desert and the even more treacherous Palace of Cobwebs, where they uncover the dreadful secret that holds the Empire together. Meanwhile, Darrow has broken away from the group to form a new alliance of his own. Can he still be trusted? In this book, Calwyn’s quest for peace and justice has greater consequences than she ever could have imagined.
Book 3 – The Tenth Power (2006)
At the beginning of The Singer of All Songs, Calwyn fled Antaris with Darrow to defeat the ambitious chanter Samis. In The Tenth Power, she comes back to the mountains in hopes of rejuvenating her lost powers of chantment. But Samis’s magic left terrible scars on Antaris, so Calwyn finds only conflict rather than the peace she craved. Meanwhile, Darrow suffers from a sickness that has sapped his magic as well as his strength–and Samis has returned to continue his quest for the Singer of All Songs. All of Tremaris seems to be dying. How can Calwyn save the land, and finally save them all?
