The Vindorans: A Tale of Three Kingdoms, Book Two. Medieval Speculative (time-travel)
Keena Listor of the Jindentors of Trezlandia is now the wife of Velorian Ernaut, Captain of King Galien’s elite guards and former enemy of her people.
As she travels toward Vindor with her new family, she knows she will be hated because of the physical differences that identify her as a foreigner. Her refusal to worship at the altar of idols will also create issues, but she hopes to postpone the conflict until she is established in her new home.
Though King Galien and Crown Prince Terric honor her for her part in saving Vindorans from death by famine, she is not foolish enough to believe the king can command the hearts and minds of people whose loved ones died by Trezlandian swords.
Velorian wonders if the pressures and frustrations of living in a culture so different from her own will strain their marriage to the breaking point. Will she, as his mother fears, decide the Jindentor forests and cliffs are more suitable for raising their children and return to Trezlandia with them? Will he leave everything and go with her if she does?

Who are the near-mythical people called the Jindentors? Trezlandians and traders from the neighboring countries of Vindor and Binrom call them the Invisibles or Melting Ones and believe they can turn into rocks, trees, or birds of prey. A few whisper they are descendants of time-travelers.
Many who trade with the Jindentors want to find the source of their healing silver water and the location of their silver mines. As war with Vindor and Binrom looms, Trezlandian King Laydor needs the Jindentor skills and tactical knowledge that saved his father’s kingdom four decades earlier. His military advisors demand conscription in violation of treaties, and others want to increase Jindentor taxes in order to pay for the war.
Keena Listor is a Jindentor master healer, a skilled archer, and a trader with a drive to visit all the continents and islands to find medicinal plants. War stymies her plans and forces her to choose between healing an enemy soldier or killing him. Her decision changes the course of her destiny.
The Binromese, A Tale of Three Kingdoms, Book 3, is tentatively scheduled to release Fall 2022.
