In the Double Agent's Service 
Annals of Alasia Book 6 
by Annie Douglas Lima 
Genre: YA Fantasy Adventure 

Erik would give his life to protect King Jaymin. However, when an old enemy shows up with new schemes, that may not be enough. 

Anya longs to be noticed by the king’s handsome bodyguard. But as she finally gains Erik’s attention, the notorious spy and double agent Dannel blackmails her into fulfilling a favor she has owed him for years. Anya is forced into a terrible choice: save Erik’s life, or protect her homeland. 

Can Erik and Anya thwart an assassin and prevent a war before Dannel destroys everything that matters to them and to the kingdom? 

King of Malorn 
Annals of Alasia Book 5 

Life as the king’s younger sister should be exciting.

Not for Princess Kalendria. She’s sick of the dissent and of constantly having her family undermined by those who think they could rule Malorn better than King Korram.

Hoping to lighten the mood in the palace, Kalendria plans a ball to celebrate her seventeenth birthday. It doesn’t hurt that their handsome Alasian ally King Jaymin has promised to attend, and she’s been waiting for him to notice her for as long as she can remember.

But unfriendly forces have their own party plans. When Kalendria, Korram, and Jaymin barely survive an assassination attempt, their only recourse is to flee into the wilderness. Tracked by unknown assassins, they must figure out whom they can trust and who is behind the plot. Can Kalendria help her brother reclaim his throne – oh, and catch Jaymin’s attention while she’s at it – before they are all killed and war destroys both kingdoms? 

The Nameless Soldier 
Annals of Alasia Book 4 

What do you do when you’re the only survivor?

Nineteen-year-old Tarvic bears the name of a mighty hero from Alasia’s past. However, the young soldier feels anything but heroic when he regains consciousness to find himself the lone survivor of a brutal attack by invaders from the neighboring kingdom.

Forced to leave his identity behind, Tarvic is thrust into civilian life in the role of protector to three war orphans. When the four of them encounter a mysterious stranger, he must choose between keeping the young girls safe and taking on a mission that could help free his kingdom. Can Tarvic live up to his noble name and find a way to balance his duty and his dreams?

The Nameless Soldier is the fourth book in the Annals of Alasia, but the first four books can be read in any order, and each one can stand on its own. 

Prince of Malorn 
Annals of Alasia Book 3 

Prince Korram is heir to the throne of Malorn, but Regent Rampus is determined to stay in power. Can Korram find a way to overthrow him before Rampus strikes him down? 

One major obstacle stands between seventeen-year-old Prince Korram and the throne that is his birthright: Regent Rampus. Temporary ruler of Malorn, Rampus has no intention of giving up his position when the crown prince comes of age – or of allowing the prince to live long enough to reach that age. 

Desperate to build an army of his own to stand against the regent, Korram treks into the Impassable Mountains to try to recruit the one segment of Malornian society not under Rampus’s control. But can he lead a band of untrained hunters and gatherers to victory against the full might of the Malornian military? Or will they all be crushed by the grasping hand of the regent before the prince can claim his rightful throne? 

Prince of Malorn is the third action and adventure novel in the Annals of Alasia fantasy series, but the first four books can be read in any order, and each can stand on its own. If you like superb world-building, finely crafted fantasy cultures, and gripping survival stories, you’ll love Annie Douglass Lima’s coming-of-age saga.

In the Enemy's Service 
Annals of Alasia Book 2 

Enslaved when invaders take over Alasia, ten-year-old Anya discovers ways to spy on the enemy and slip information to the resistance. But then she uncovers a disturbing reference to her own family and is confronted by a stranger who seems to know her secrets. Holding her life in his hands, he claims to have proof that Anya’s father was involved in the betrayal that led to the Invasion itself. Can Anya help save her kingdom without putting her father in danger … and can she learn the truth about what happened before it’s too late?

In the Enemy’s Service is the second book in the Annals of Alasia, but the first four in the series can be read in any order, and each book can stand on its own. 

Prince of Alasia 
Annals of Alasia Book 1 

Twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin, heir to the throne of Alasia, barely escapes with his life when invaders from neighboring Malorn attack. Accompanied by his young bodyguard, Jaymin flees to a nearby town to live in hiding. There, surrounded by the enemy soldiers searching for the missing prince, his life depends on his ability to maintain his disguise.

As the danger intensifies and the Malornians’ suspicions grow, Jaymin seeks desperately for a way to save his kingdom and himself. Then he stumbles upon a startling discovery that will challenge his assumptions and forever change his view of Malorn and the events that altered his life.

Prince of Alasia is the first book in the Annals of Alasia, but the first four in the series can be read in any order, and each book can stand on its own.

King of Malorn

“Refreshments for their Majesties.” The servant’s voice quivered a little.
Perhaps he was simply nervous about waiting on his king and the royal guest. But Erik recalled seeing this man before on Jaymin’s other state visits to Malorn. He wasn’t new on the job. Could he be sick?
Well, he carried no obvious weapon, and his physique didn’t indicate he’d be much of a match for a bodyguard trained in unarmed combat. Erik stepped aside and let him in, closing the door behind him. The servant bowed awkwardly to the roomful of royalty, balancing the tray in shaky hands. 
“Put it on the end table there.” King Korram pointed. The wine sloshed as the man set his tray down with a thud, barely rescuing the pitcher before it tipped over. 
Palace servants weren’t usually so clumsy. Something was definitely wrong. Why is this man at work if he’s unwell?
“Sorry, your Majesties.” The servant dabbed at a few spilled drops of wine with a napkin.
The princess was watching him, obviously puzzled. “Are you all right?”
“I — well, I — no, your Highness, not really.” The servant swallowed and his face contorted as though with a spasm of pain. Everyone stared at him as he bent double and gasped, clutching at his midsection.
The Malornian king rose to his feet, taking the man’s arm. “Sit down a moment. Here, there’s a chair right behind you. What’s the matter?”
“I don’t — oh, it hurts.” The man gasped again, seizing the arm of the chair as he sank into it, still doubled over in agony.
“What have you been eating or drinking?” King Korram’s voice sounded angry, but Erik suspected he was just concerned. 
“Nothing, Sire. I don’t — I mean — well, I only had a little. Ahh!” He rocked back and forth.
Oh, no. Erik had a very bad feeling about this.
“You had a little of what? Answer me!” Seizing him by the shoulders, King Korram forced the man to look up at him. 
“The wine, Sire. I — I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have. It just — it looked so — ohh ….” He grimaced again. “It was — only a taste before I brought it up here.”
Erik exchanged an alarmed look with Jaymin. They all turned to gaze at the pitcher on the tray, its bright red contents sparkling in the lamplight. King Korram bent over the writhing servant once again. “Who prepared the wine? Who else had access to it? Tell me.” 
But the man slipped off the chair and crumpled to the floor, crying out in agony. He rolled over once, twitched, and then lay still. His face froze in a mask of pain, mouth and eyes open, one hand still gripping the red-spotted napkin. His skin was so pale it might have been made of paste.
Silence filled the room for a full five heartbeats. They were all on their feet now, staring in shock at the motionless figure before them. 

Erik stepped forward and knelt beside the body, feeling for a pulse in the neck and placing his ear over the man’s mouth and nose. As he had suspected, there was nothing. “He’s dead.”
