Do you think when a man’s name reaches my ear, that he doesn’t deserve what I bring him?

Cat has grown up as a cutpurse on London’s streets – pretending to be a boy to stay clear of the procurers, but that ruse is getting harder to maintain and she needs a new plan. One that will let her keep the gang’s next big score for herself, get her free of the streets, and give her the hope of a new life. Then she finds her plan was someone else’s all along – and that man’s intentions are not at all what they seem.

In the climactic fifth book of the Shards of Excalibur, Ariane, Wally, Flish, and Rex Major are on a collision course, converging on the resting place of the final piece of the sword: the hilt, long ago removed from its original hiding place by the descendants of King Arthur. When Wally uncovers its surprising location, far closer to hand than they’d ever guessed, it seems all Ariane and Wally have to do is claim it and reforge the sword to defeat Merlin forever.

Except…how, exactly, do you reforge a magical sword? Especially, how do you do it when the richest man in the world is on your trail and pouring all of his enormous resources into stopping you?

When the pieces of the sword are at last reunited, the long-closed door into Faerie swings open wide. Who – and what – emerges from it may destroy everything and everyone Wally and Ariane have fought so hard to save – and allow Rex Major to snatch victory from the very jaws of defeat.

twistoftheblade Elizabeth’s latest Audible release is the second book in the Shards of Excalibur series by Edward Willett: Twist of the Blade. The first book in the series is already available at Audible: Song of the Sword, which has garnered very positive reviews. The remaining three books in the series will be released over the course of the summer. This wonderful Canadian YA fantasy series is a unique twist on the old Arthurian stories of Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, and the powerful sword Excalibur.

Having saved the first Shard of the sword Excalibur from Internet mogul Rex Major (aka Merlin), Ariane and Wally are on the lookout for the second. Wally is worried that the power of the first Shard is already changing Ariane, giving her the strength to do good and evil, and when she badly injures his bullying sister, Flish, it seems he’s right.

Meanwhile, they have a serious problem: Ariane’s located the second Shard in France. Sure, her inherited powers from the Lady of the Lake enable her to travel magically through fresh water, but it hasn’t escaped their notice that there’s a huge saltwater ocean separating them from their next target. And Rex Major is already on his way there.

As Major uses Wally’s doubts – and his secret wish to be more than just a nerdy sidekick – to cause a rift between the friends, Ariane takes the chance to go it alone. But if the first Shard’s power is barely controllable, how will she fare when two Shards are united? And what can Wally do to get his friend back?

songofthesword Elizabeth is excited to announce her latest audiobook release: Song of the Sword by Edward Willett, the first book in the Shards of Excalibur series, now available at Audible! Elizabeth will be narrating the other four books in the series for ACX later this year. This series has garnered some stellar reviews – check out the Audible page, or visit the author’s website to read them.

Ariane’s life is complicated. Her mother suddenly disappeared two and a half years ago, she’s trying to get used to living with her aunt after bouncing around a series of foster homes, and she’s taking a lot of grief from the clique of “in” girls at school. To make matters even worse, now she’s having strange dreams involving swords and knights and battles, and things seem to get weird whenever she touches water.

The weirdness comes to a head the morning the lake starts singing to her. Next thing she knows, she’s underwater, talking to the Lady of the Lake of King Arthur fame (who turns out to be an ancestor), has acquired a nerdy sidekick, Wally, has been bestowed magical powers, and has been sent on a quest to find the five scattered shards of Excalibur before the powerful wizard Merlin, in his unsuspected modern-day guise, can get his hands on them. Can Ariane and Wally figure out how to use her new abilities to meet the challenge…or will they die trying?
