The Utopian Saga
This book series is basically done, well the stories are, but there is still a lot of fine tuning and rewriting to do. The first book of the series is now at the stage where I will send it to a professional editor. Well, soon as I have the money together.
The other books are still in the stage where I have to over it again and again until I’m satisfied with them.
The Utopian Saga is a series of five books.

The travel through the world tree
The road through Atlantis
In The Immortal Druid, Lisa Longshire and Alastair meet. She believing to be nothing more than a history mayor, which has unusual dreams. He knowing she is his fated mate, and the one destined to save the world.
When Lisa travels to Toronto to attend Alastair’s history seminar, she has no idea that her life is about to change in every aspect. When checking into her hotel, she meets Alastair’s brother Condan, who later picks her up for dinner and arranges a meeting between Lisa and Alastair.
Never before has Lisa felt such and intense and sudden attraction to a man, it hit’s her so hard, it scares her. Yet she can’t help herself to be fascinated by him as well, as if an invisible force is pulling and pushing she can’t simply ignore him. Instead she falls for him more and more every minute they spent together, until she can no longer deny it, she has fallen in love. No matter that it seems impossible to love someone within a few day’s, no matter that a quiet voice is telling her that if she lets herself love him, there is no way back from it, she finally gives in.
After spending two amazing day’s with him, Lisa feels on top of the world, only to almost die when her unknown enemy the Fomorii send an assassin.
Fighting for her life, Lisa discovers that inside her is a part she didn’t know about, a warrior queen, able to fight like no other. Letting her genetic memory guide her, she has almost defeated her attacker when Alastair and Condan storm in and kill the assailant.
As if her sudden knowledge of fighting wasn’t enough, she has even more trouble to believe that she saw Alastair’s arm transforming into a silver armored arm, with a sword as large as the man holding it, only to see both of it vanish in the blink of an eye.
The events force Alastair to tell her about her destiny and that he is a 1500 year old druid, with magical powers, something they have in common, only Lisa hadn’t known so far. When she tries to deny it, tells herself and them that they are mentally disturbed, Condan mentions her dreams.
Assuming Condan read her dream diary somehow, she storm out, angry, scared and confused. Yelling at them to not follow her, to not even try to contact her. Unknowingly using the magical spell of voice, compelling them to follow her instruction.
Luckily her magic isn’t that strong or focused yet, that the brothers are stuck in her suite forever. Still they can do nothing to stop her, nothing to protect her should the Fomorii send another assassin.

The Immortal King – Book 2 of the Utopian Saga
To them ten months have passed, but in the real world 15 years have gone by when Lisa and Alastair return to his estate in Scotland. When Lisa steps upon the ground for the first time, her new developed powers connect her with the life force of the planet. All the good, the evil, the happy and the pain slam into her like a sledge hammer, almost overwhelming her. Only with Alastair’s help is she able to gain control of it, and knows now of all the evil that has befallen the planet in the years they spent healing. Lisa can feel the pain and sorrow, the violence and envy, but also the good, the love and acceptance that still lives in people. It makes her decision easy, she will do what she can to save the world, and she will fulfill her destiny.
If only it where that easy, acceptance was the first and easiest step. Soon she learns what has happened in all those years, of the wars, the poverty and the raising crime rates. Spending their first evening with Alastair’s groundkeeper, they hear of all the bad, but see all the good right in front of them. During the talk Lisa realizes that the last night she had spent in Alastair’s arms, the night she had chosen him and this world, might result in pregnancy.
Shocked she fears his reaction as much as what a child would mean in the situation they were. When she tells him of the possibility, he assures her, but her worry won’t vanish until she can take a test.
None the less they spend the next day’s reacquainting themselves, and their bodies, thanks to their groundkeepers wife who brought protection.
Too soon they have to return to reality, knowing they can’t prolong their search for the one who would lead them to the next relict. Lisa had everything set up to search for Arthur, the king of old, the king of legend and to her surprise Alastair’s half-brother. Hatred glows in his eyes every time they speak of Arthur, to Alastair he is a traitor, a tyrant and egomaniac.
When they finally find him, the great goddess Lisa invoked takes Alastair’s knowledge and copies it into Arthur, giving him the tools to be useful in this new era.
When Arthur wakes for the first time, they discover that he has no memory of his life beyond the day Alastair had seen him last, the day of Beltane when Arthur had abused one of the maidens. The first sin Arthur had committed and has no memory of.
Alastair tells him of his sins, of the shame and destruction he had brought to Avalon and the old religion. The hatred intense in his eyes and voice.
When then they ask him for Excalibur, the sword of light, the relic they need to save the world, he has no knowledge of where it is, or how and when he lost it.
Now they have to find the sword, who might have it, and where might it be hidden. The pressure is already great, the fear of being pregnant not lessening it, and when Arthur realizes he lost his fated mate and all memory of her, despair thickens the air.
Find out if Lisa is pregnant, if they find Excalibur and who is the mysterious woman named Gwendolyn Lakelet who hold the scabbard of Excalibur in her possession. Who attacks the estate and what secretive message they find? What will they discover in the ring of stones, and how they learn of their next challenge? Read Excerpt here (PDF File)

The Road through Atlantis – Book 5 of the Utopian Saga
Finally, after fighting monsters, facing their greatest fear and having to hand over their son to Killgarak, they reached Atlantis. All of them battered, beaten and exhausted to the point of collapsing, but not defeated. They had entered Atlantis through the catacombs, where once the most dangerous creatures had been held captive. Now the catacombs are empty, silent and ominous.
The moment the exit the catacombs, the Gods who once lived on the island know that something is wrong. When they had left the city several millennia ago, the doors to the seven circles had been left wide open, the path to the inner city free to walk. Now all the doors where closed, and worse locked.
Never had Lisa or Alastair thought to find a city as ancient as Atlantis, yet more modern and advanced then their own world. Danu who knows the technology the best soon discovers that the cities defence system had been triggered and put the city in lock down. As if that hurdle wasn’t hard enough the security system shows them where all the creatures, once housed in the catacombs had gone to. Into the city, and it seemed that they had bred and multiplied, at least some of them.
If Argos hadn’t been with them to retrieve the security codes from the inner city, their shared destiny had ended right there and them. But as often before, Condan’s heart, housed in the dogs body came through for them.
Now they have to face the seven circles and the monsters that have taken them over. All while their love is tested over and over again, forcing the four couples to see their true selves, their deepest desires, and their greatest fears.
What will await them as they forge their way through Atlantis, and how will they save the world from certain doom? Will their love survive, or will all be lost to them?
