    Sora Fallcrest always dreamed of adventure, but as a member of the nobility, she learned the ways of a Lady instead. Now seventeen, she is expected to choose a husband and marry. She plots to run away, but just as she is stepping out the door, she runs into a mysterious man and is kidnapped.

    Abducted from her manor, Sora is plunged into a world of magical races, arcane jewelry and forgotten lore. She finds herself at the mercy of a dangerous assassin, haunted by an even darker past. She yearns for freedom, but he won’t let her go–not when her Cat’s Eye necklace is the only thing that can save his life.

    But the necklace itself presents a problem. It is an ancient device from the long forgotten War of the Races, and its magic has the ability to steal souls. Can Sora learn to wield its power–or will the power wield her? (Winner of the SKOW 2006 Best Fantasy Award)

    She must travel overseas to the Lost Isles, a place of legend and mystery. Only there can she destroy the bloodmage, Volcrian, putting an end to the curse. She is accompanied by Crash, a lethal assassin who once threatened—and saved—her life. But Sora is beginning to question her dark companion. He seems to be carrying a secret; a hidden past that could endanger them all.

    Meanwhile, they are hunted by an underground society known as the Shade. For centuries, the Shade has waited for the perfect opportunity to step into the light. Now they are perilously close to resurrecting a Dark God and unleashing a wave of unimaginable destruction. They only need to collect the three sacred weapons, and Sora has already found two….

    The bloodmage Volcrian is dead, but a new enemy lurks in the shadows. The Shade, a fanatical cult of demonic assassins, is trying to resurrect the Dark God and unleash His power back into the world. In their wake, a deadly plague is spreading across the land.

    Sora and her companions are the only ones who know of the plague’s true source. As the disease spreads, Sora must journey to the City of Crowns to retrieve The Book of the Named, her only hope of stopping The Shade. She and her companions arrive just in time for the winter solstice festival, a notorious two-weeks of fine wines, grand parties and legendary debauchery. Sora must don the guise of a noblewoman and infiltrate the First Tier nobility to stop The Shade before it’s too late.

    Meanwhile, the assassin Crash is confronted by a ghost from his past. As he uncovers more of the Shade’s plot, he finds himself face-to-face with his old Grandmaster, the one who trained him—and who he betrayed. Can Crash lay to rest his past, or will he succumb to his inner demon and rejoin the man who once made him a killer?

    1. Hello. Has Volcrian’s Hunt been published yet? If not, when will it be published and available for sale?

      • Hi Deanna! 😉

        Volcrian’s Hunt has a tentative release date of 6/1/13. In the meantime, I’ll be updating this website with excerpts, fun facts, forums and quizzes. Come back in January for the full experience! :)

        -Dorian (from beyond the grave)

        • Thanks Dorian!

          • when is the book coming out there are 2 dates one for June and one for September…. cant wait any longer……..Please.

            • Hi Jane! It’s in September, boo I know, but I had to push the release date back. June was just too hopeful. Working on the last chapter now, then editing…

    2. While I really enjoyed Sora’s Quest, I was a little disappointed to see the rest of your books taken down. I was wondering where the rest of your stories have gone, especially the one that I read a few years back about the daughter of the moon, or something to that effect. I loved that book.

      • Hi Jess!

        Glad you like the series, and never fear, the Prophecy of the Moon series will be released eventually, after the Cat’s Eye Chronicles is concluded. It will be available on Kindle, Nook and other ereaders. Thanks for following along all these years!

        ~Dorian

      • I’ve read Sora’s quest for free on my kindle and I’ve read it over and over.I have no money for the other books but I plan on getting some.I feel like I live for books and especially books like this!!!

    3. Hi! I’ve been reading the Cat’s eye series for a wile and was wondering if it is a trilogy or if it will be a longer series. Thank you!!!=D

      • Hi Liz!

        The Cat’s Eye series will be approximately 5 books… The Author is deliberating on a sixth book, assuming there is anything left to write about! After Volcrian’s Hunt, the story shall dive into the City of Crowns and the secrets of The Shade. Ready for cults, murder and intrigue in the King’s court? I thought so. We all know how I feel about debauchery. 😉

        ~Dorian

    4. I enjoyed the first 2 books of the cat eye series. Looking forward to the next book.

      • Thank you Linda! ~Dorian

    5. Oh no! I just finished Viper’s Creed, and I have 3 more months to wait for the next one! Argh! Really enjoying the series, can’t wait for the next one.

      • Thanks for stopping by! I’m excited about Book 3 too! :) So close….

    6. I just finished Viper’s Creed — what a wonderful book! And, so nice to see something appropriate for sharing with my twelve year old daughter, too! Write like the wind, please — I can’t wait for book three! :o)

      • Hi Elise! How cool that your 12 year old daughter liked it too! Thanks for reading and stopping by! :)

    7. So i totally LOVE this series it was amazing in every aspect and i cant wait until the next book comes out, but thats what im confused on because i was on goodreads.com and there was a box set with books 1-3 and i was like whaaaaa? So im a little confused on whether it comes out in september or if its already out. Love yoour bools and please never stop writing

      • Hi May! There actually isn’t a box set, that is a typo that one of the Goodreads Librarians posted on the website… it’s actually the original book of Cat’s Eye that I released many-a-year ago. The story spans books 1-3, but I have built upon it so much that I wouldn’t recommend buying the old version, unless you want a collector’s copy. There were only 200 books printed. :) The third book of The Cat’s Eye Chronicles will be available on September 30th.

    8. Hi! I loved the other two books and I can’t wait for ‘Volcrians hunt’… just to confirm, is the book released on the 30th of september? I think I might cry if I have to wait too long for the fourth and fifth! 😉

      • Hi Rebecca! Yes, the next book is out on September 30th. I plan a yearly release for the 4th and 5th books, and short stories in between to keep building on the world. There are lots of new characters coming up, so I’ll be digging into their pasts a bit. :) Thanks for following the series!

        • I read all three books and was wondering when book 4 is coming out

    9. I’m so happy I found these books. I love a good fantasy novel full of adventure and drama. I would rank these books right up there with some of the grates (Margret Wise, Tracy Hickman, and Terry Goodkind just to name a few) It takes true talent as a writer to be able to flip from narrative to first person the why you do making it a enjoyable read. My only wish is that I had found these books later so I would not have to wait but I guess all good things are worth waiting for. I know release date is set for September 30th but is there a date set for pre-order?

    10. I have been reading your stories since you first posted them on fictionpress. I enjoyed them then but now after all the editing and polishing I absolutely love the stories. Can’t wait to read more!

    11. I absolutely LOVED the first book and the portion of the second I’ve been able to read in the sample. I was so upset when Dorian died :( He was my favorite character!!

    12. Enjoying your books. I do a lot of reading. Could you send out a reminder in September?

      • If you join the mailing list, you will definitely get a reminder in your email. I will also be updating my sites and facebook with the information.

    13. Loved the first book!!!!! I will be purchasing the second. I was so deeply saddened by Dorian’s death. Almost as much as Sora. Maybe he could be resurrected in a future book? !? Especially since you use his name to reply to readers. Come on!! You can figure something out to bring him back to real life and not just a dream.

    14. I love these books so far and I am very exited for the next one to come out! I have a question though. How old is Crash?

      • That’s actually addressed in Volcrian’s Hunt, so I won’t spoil it by putting it up here on the public page. But don’t worry, it will be answered! :)

        • Haha ok. The suspense is killing me.

    15. Loved the first two books, ready for the 3rd! Come on Sept 30! I’m only sad that I will have to wait for book 4 and 5…..

    16. I am so excited for Volcrians Hunt to come out! Please give me some hints about it!

      • Hmmm well, we’ve got some romance stirring and a lot of secrets that are about to be revealed about Crash’s background. It’s my personal opinion, but I think Volcrian’s Hunt is the most epic installment so far… 😉 Can’t wait to share it with you guys!

    17. I just finished book 3! But cant find any information on Book 4. What is it called and when will it be available.

      • Hi Anna! Book 4 information is here: Ferran’s Map. Glad you’re enjoying the series! The next book will be available Summer 2014.

    18. Crash and Sora’s themesong is probably Distance by Christina Perri and Jason Mraz!

      Will the books be made into movies?

      • Hey Maddy! I agree, other readers have sent me that song. Also, try Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips (for Crash.) Really awesome.

        For now there are no movie plans, but I live in the heart of the “studios” (Disney, Nickelodeon and WB are within walking distance) so who knows what the future might bring…. :) I’ve already met with a few people who mentioned turning it into an animation. (Meaning, it could happen, but no plans yet!)

    19. Yeah will they mack a movie they would be great?!?!?!?

    20. I just finished reading the first three books in three days and I just can’t wait for Ferran’s Map!!!! Do you already have an idea of when it is going to be released so I can start counting down the days?

      • Hi Serena! No official date yet, I want to be certain the book is finished and editing stages have begun before I make an announcement. Right now it’s looking like August. …

        • When is the next book coming out? i would love to know because i have been waiting for a looming time! please get back to me soon. I really hope you can finish them soon.
          best of luck,
          Vittoria Clark

    21. I love love loved your books!
      Do you have a specific date on the fourth book yet? I can’t WAIT to read it!

    22. You’re books are amazing to say the least I have read almost all of you’re released work but still stuck on the cat eye chronicles read all the books twice but I still cant find the 5th book. Has it been released yet?

    23. OMG!! I’m such a big fan of this series, I just got finished reading “Vipers Creed” and I can’t wait to read “Volcrains Hunt”!

      • Wait the fourth book is coming out on the 31st of October? I think I might die. I have nothing to read! I can not re-read sorta quest considering I have read that 5 times in the past month. I am waiting for the next book by Rick Rioaran to come out. I don’t want to start another seies, ugh. Why can’t books just appear magically? Why? My life would be so much better, and then people would not have to wait.
        By the way I love the series I wanted to get my point across of having nothing to read. Anyone recommend any books?

        • I would recommend Shadows (Alida~Book One) or a Redwall book. They are both good books and they are easy to put down and come back to if a different book comes up that you want to read.

    24. I LOVE this series. I have already read each book at least twice. I cannot wait until the next book comes out. And I definitely would like to see Crash show Sora how he feels, and if it takes him to get jealous over another person so be it. I love this series and my family tell me I am to into it. This series has inspired me…. and I was wondering if I could have your permission to make a series similar to this… only more races and set in present time. But I wanted you permission first before I started. and I will definitely site you if I do write it.

    25. When is the next book coming out? i would love to know because i have been waiting for a looming time! please get back to me soon
      I absolutely adore the series.
      peace,
      Vittoria Clark
