Marie Bilodeau loves to make things up, which is why she’s both a performing storyteller and author. She’s performed in bars, pubs and tea shops across most of Canada, telling modernized fairy tales, myths, and stories of nuns scratching her butt. To breathe new life into her tales and increase their audience, she’s also morphed some of her stories into podcasts. Her published works include a fantasy trilogy, the Heirs of a Broken Land series, and a space fantasy novel, Destiny’s Blood. Her short fiction has also appeared in anthologies and magazines.
The fabulous series by Marie Bilodeau wraps up today with Destiny’s War. Officially releasing on January 21, 2014, you can get an early release ebook copy here only before the holiday season! Available in both epub and Kindle formats, we also have a bundle of all three books (if you’re like me and like to wait until a series is finished before starting!) and at a great price.

A thief of valuable blooms, Layela’s dream is finally coming true with the opening of her flower shop on the small remote planet of Collar. But the disappearance of her twin sister leaves her with a difficult choice: to continue tending to her blooms and promising future, or to blend in once again with the shadows to find her sister.
She soon becomes the prey of two powerful assassins, of a colonel bent on revenge and of a mysterious sword-wielding stranger. Her only allies are Josmere – a feisty ether creature with the power to unlock the visions that assault Layela’s mind, or to keep them from her – and a smuggling rogue, Ardin, hired to protect Layela at whatever the cost, even if that cost is her freedom.
Their journey takes them across several worlds as Layela discovers who she and her sister truly are. And before them awaits the mythical First Star, on a path to self-destruction and the annihilation of all life.
Unless Layela finds a way to stop it. But to stop it would mean sacrificing her sister.
A broken tradition.
A hunted child.
A rebellion that threatens to topple
the very fabric of the universe.
When Layela Delamores gives birth to her first child, the ether immediately rejects what should be its only heir. A wave of destruction sweeps the ether races and sparks Solaria’s ire and rebellion on Mirial. A new heir rises to take the throne of Mirial, one who wields tainted ether.
Unable to access the flow of ether, Layela is left with little choice but to flee Mirial, seeking answers that may no longer exist, prepared to sacrifice everything to free herself and her daughter from the clutches of the First Star.
She had given her up.
To save her daughter from a life of servitude to a silent First Star, Layela Delamores sent her only child away. Willing to miss the first decade of her daughter’s life, for a chance to reunite as a free family.
Now, a new First Star is ready to take over from the dying star Mirial, freeing Layela and her family from the clutches of duty and obligation.
But the star was silent.
When the new First Star fails to ignite, the failing Mirial is the only lifeline to the countless ether races across the galaxy. But not everyone wants to save Mirial, including Layela’s own daughter. Trapped between obligations and hopes, Layela must find a way to save as many people as she can, or learn to live in the dead world she helped to create.
