Ariane Forsythe and Wally Knight are just two ordinary Canadian teenagers until the morning they encounter the Lady of the Lake in the unlikely waters of Wascana Lake in Regina, Saskatchewan. Ariane learns she’s heir to the power of the Lady, and she and Wally, who turns out to have his own unsuspected connection to the legends of King Arthur, are given the difficult task of finding the five scattered shards of Arthur’s sword Excalibur before Merlin can, in his modern-day guise as wealthy and powerful computer magnate Rex Major. If Merlin gets the sword, he will use its power to take over the world and then launch an attack into his homeland of Faerie, no matter what the cost.

Ariane’s and Wally’s quest takes them all over the world (courtesy of the power Ariane has inherited that allows them to travel through water and the clouds), from Saskatchewan to the Northwest Territories to southern France; to New Zealand and the Caribbean; to British Columbia and Scotland, always struggling–and sometimes failing–to stay one step ahead of Rex Major. Along the way, they face betrayal and treachery, difficult choices, and unexpected discoveries. And when the quest is finally achieved and the sword reforged, what happens next is nothing at all like either Wally or Ariane imagined, and threatens everything they’ve sought to achieve–and everyone they love.

Three of the books were finalists for major Canadian science fiction and fantasy awards.
