Silky

Captured as a child and sold into heartless slavery has robbed Silky of his magical abilities and left him with no expectations of a better life -- until his own act of bravery delivers him into the hands of a powerful Lord of the Land.

His troubles are far from over, however, since Lord Reed is out of favor with the King, and danger threatens at any mischance. Working with Lord Reed starts him along a path that will lead to power, danger and heartbreak, and a future the young slave boy could never have imagined. (This is a slightly reworked version of the Embiid Publishing version from 1998).

Silky is also available as part of a bundle of Lazette Gifford's fiction and nonfiction works.

The last two books of the Dark Staff Series have been published as well!

Endless Blue

The Very Large Object That ATE the Other Very Large Objects!

The Sargasso. Space ships go in, and they don't come back. But as the all-destroying Nefrim drive humanity from the stars, everything depends on one captain's desperate gambit: to dial his stardrive to zero—to "fall off the map"—and plunge into the ocean-covered pocket universe that is the Sargasso. Within is a secret that can change a galaxy. And, though escape is a trick generations of trapped starfarers have tried and failed to master—now the fate of two universes depends on Mikail Volkov being the first to GET OUT!
