The Chronicles of Antecede:

Lost and Found

by C.M. Sage


GENRE: Fantasy



Sometimes things are lost for a very long time...and then they are found.

Take Gracie for example, a woman who lost everything, her life, her family, even her name, but now she is a Cathalian warrior of Antecede blessed with powers, which aren't yet fully realized.  Her elder and nemesis, Donavan, finally granted the former professor an opportunity to train a new warrior.  Her joy turns to shock when she meets her great, great, great, great grandson, Henry, accompanied by his wisecracking best friend, Milo.  Henry recognizes his long dead ancestor right away, and it doesn't take the Cathalians long to realize that this meeting was no accident.

Gracie and the warriors of Antecede soon discover that they aren't the only ones laying a claim on their new charges.  Menacing enemies from the South and their hired mercenary assassin, Revilan, the Bowman, have also taken an interest.  Come along with Gracie, Donavan, and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it, and along the way discover what else was lost.



Gracie tapped his shoulder, “Milo, did you notice anything unusual before I arrived to meet you? Did you see anyone on the shore, even from a far distance?” Milo reached down to ruffle Rosie’s ears before he answered, which was fortunate because at that exact moment a vicious arrow barely missed grazing his ear before flying by into the tall grass.

Gracie heard a sound like a muffled curse far off in the distance. The language wasn’t one she recognized. She knocked Milo flat to the ground, so that he was no longer a target and signaled for her little ones to stay down. Several more arrows flew in quick succession from the same direction. Gracie managed to pull a long dagger from under her coat before she also went down. Blue fell onto her back next to Gracie, a knife in each hand. Gracie looked at Obi, who knew what to do. He crawled away to search for and retrieve an arrow.

In the interim Blue and Gracie rose to their knees, keeping their heads down, and signaling for Milo to stay down. He nodded, and muttered in a shaky voice, “You don’t have to tell me twice. I may never get up!”



If I’d Never Heard of Me, Would I Read My Book?

That is a great question!  I got a little anxious for a minute when I thought about it.  I am “me”, so I really have to shove a lot of that out of the way like a big, heavy trunk to write an honest answer.  You know what?  Yes…if I read the blurb on the back of the book or a synopsis, I would read it.  I love fantasy, adventure romances, so Lost and Found is right up my alley.

I love my cover, and I am so grateful to Stephanie Mooney who was so patient with me.  She knew what I wanted more than I did.  How she somehow figured that out from my emails which are more complicated than the hardest Wordle still amazes me.  I think the cover makes me want to read my own book again 😊

Of course, I have read the book probably a couple of hundred times at this point.  I can honestly say, I love the characters and the story.  I even think the villains are worthy of the story.  I don’t like them, but they do their jobs really well.  I love the plot and twists.  Enough said on that.

Finally I think the story makes me want to know what’s next for the Cathalians of Antecede… I love when a story makes me care about the future and well-being of a character(s) who have become a friend or part of the fabric of the reader’s life.

So after careful consideration I can honestly say that I like my story, and yup…I would read Lost and Found 😊
