A story about acceptance, duty, and coming home, with a diverse cast of heroines and heroes ready to fight for what's right.
We live brave. We die free.
Darkness has fallen upon the golden kingdom of Bravoure. Once the beacon of an alliance uniting four races, Bravoure is now under the oppression of an elven prince from beneath the surface. Not even the prophecy, the one that foretold his demise in the holy fires of the Dragonborn, was able to stop him.
Ahna, a runaway mage, rises above the decades of grief and returns to the fight, joining the united soldiers of the Resistance. Despite her origins, she is accepted by these brave heroes who will never let their differences stand in the way of freedom.
She and the rebels embark on a covert mission to save the kingdom, but the past and the secrets she keeps will soon come knocking, and Ahna will face her demons as she faces the false king. Epic fantasy with a refreshing twist: three books that are all different and similar at the same time. Tempest of Bravoure takes us to an imaginative world full of excitement, interesting creatures, and surprise twist that will leave readers eager for the next page. In this journey through self-discovery, we find our way home, sometimes in the unlikeliest of places. Difference is not an excuse for fear, and Bravoure's heroes unite through their will to do what's right.
This box set includes all three books of the Tempest of Bravoure series: Kingdom Ascent, Castaway, and City of the Dead, and bonus short stories that add to the Terran lore.

Book 3: City of the Dead

“An emotionally charged adventure that sword and sorcery fans will devour. It seems like we’re only scratching the surface of some deeper lore.”
— Literary Titan
“Unleashing deep, rich storylines, enjoyable character interactions, and compelling surprises upon her readers, D’Angelis is a storytelling force to watch out for.”
— Michael DeAngelo, Tellest author
“The resistance movement we as the reader join is build on equality and is group that bands together irregardless of ones origins, religion, gender or race. The diversity is certainly noticeable but not forced. It’s noticeable because queer characters aren’t presented as sinful and their queerness isn’t used to advance the plot, they just are. Just as female warriors are just regular occurrence throughout the book and not the exception that proves the rule.”
— Goodreads reviewer
“I really enjoyed D’Angelis’ fresh take on things (having an elf as the villain was fun, and he was a great badguy)! Ahna was a really good character too, packed with depth and secrets of her own. If you love your fantasy along the lines of Dragon Prince or Dragon Age, definitely come battle for freedom in Kingdom Ascent!”
— Diabolic Shrimp
“I was overjoyed to see the maps at the beginning. Ahna is a bit of a complex character, but that’s what I like about her. And her growth throughout the story, made me feel so deeply for her. Such a fantastic story.”
— J.A. Books
“Really likeable characters that I cared about. The story keeps wrong footing you. Definitely worth reading.”
— Avalon Retail
“The story runs along at a cracking pace, with unexpected plot twists and reveals to keep you guessing. It has every ingredient you could want for in a classic fantasy saga, swords, sorcery, dragons and elves; combined with a diverse, inclusive community of rebels, that adds a slice of modern social commentary.”
— Amazon customer
“A story about acceptance in an exquisitely crafted world. While it may seem rather similar to traditional fantasy tropes there’s always something different about it to fascinate the reader. I’ve never read a story about acceptance of all people in the realms banding to defeat a false king like Kingdom Ascent.”
— NetGalley reviewer
“Who doesn’t love a book that’s not only immerses you into the world but also educates you and gives you something to think about.”
