Read full description of the books:
The Ska'i, savage barbarians intent on slaughter, are massing in the hills surrounding Zithirian. Only Halthris of the nomadic Tanathi can warn the beautiful city of the threat. A chance encounter on the steppe throws her into a terrifying world of decadent royalty, sinister political intrigue and lethal magic...
And into the midst of the jealous rivalries that plague Zithirian. The cool Ansaryon and handsome Tsenit, sons of the royal house, are at war with each other for control of the future. Halthris is courted by both men but must also safeguard the fortunes of her own people. And all the time the Ska'i hordes wait for their moment...

Read information about the authorBelle, who also writes contemporary fiction as Alice Marlow, always wanted to be an author. As a child the books she read were adventure stories like "Treasure Island," "Swallows and Amazons," and the novels of John Buchan and CS Forester. She wrote her first book at the age of twelve and having visited the site of a lovely Elizabethan manor house called Rushbrooke and observing the bare, moated island which was all that was left, she wanted to bring Rushbrooke back and chose to do so in print.
Over the next few years 'The Epic', as it became known, grew and grew. Belle drew up a huge family tree and a plan of the house very like Rushbrooke.
Married and a teacher of a class of six-year-olds, she wrote in longhand and, while publishers made encouraging noises, no one was prepared to risk publishing a large book by an unknown author. Eventually the agent Vivienne Schuster was wonderfully enthusiastic about it and found a publisher.
"The Moon in the Water" and its two sequels were published in the UK and the USA with considerable success. Belle gave up teaching in 1985 to spend more time researching and writing. She plans to write a book about Alfred the Great if she can fit it in between looking after the children, dogs, cats and husband.
