Sara Douglass



Sara Douglass would have to be one of my favorite Authors. She is Australian (like me!) and has a wonderful style. Her books are addictive so BEWARE!

Her most popular books would have to be the Axis Trilogy and the Wayfarer Redemption trilogy. They are based in the same world and follow the same family throught several generations. Axis, her main character in the Axis trilogy, is the Battleaxe of the major religious group. He commands the elite fighting force of the church that mainstays the stability of the people and their beleif in the plow god Artor. Axis is a bastard son of a Duke and his eldest legitimate brother takes sibling rivalry to the peak of it's existance. Axis' leinage is brought out into the open and he is forced to leave the beloved church to confide in the expelled magical races of the land. I don't want to spoil anything else for you so this is all I can say about the books. The Wayfarer Redemption trilogy follows Axis' son Drago as he rediscovers himself and saves the land from demon invaders after his magical family is turned impotent under the demon's influence. A journy of discovery and change awaits you.
