Summary

In the tradition of Terry Brooks' Landover series, Piers Anthony Xanth books, and Terry Pratchett's Discword novels, scientist and blogger Dan Koboldt weaves wonder, humor, and heart into his debut novel, The Rogue Retrieval.  
Sleight of hand…in another land 
Stage magician Quinn Bradley has one dream: to headline his own show on the Vegas Strip. And with talent scouts in the audience wowed by his latest performance, he knows he’s about to make the big-time. 
What he doesn’t expect is an offer to go on a quest to a place where magic is all too real. 
That's how he finds himself in Alissia, a world connected to ours by a secret portal owned by a powerful corporation. He’s after an employee who has gone rogue, and that’s the least of his problems. Alissia has true magicians…and the penalty for impersonating one is death. In a world where even a twelve-year-old could beat Quinn in a swordfight, it's only a matter of time until the tricks up his sleeves run out.

    Of the Faye Series 
    Sno was not alone when she was born with the mark of the moon goddess; the Faye's Goddess. 
    There was another who bore the same mark; another who would wield the goddesses' magic. 
    However, a prophecy split the Faye people. It read that one would destroy their way of life and the other would pull them from the ashes. 
    The prince was one of those who bore Ayana's mark and though the Queen was easily able to convince her people that their future leader would save their kingdom, she knew it wasn't the truth. She was willing to do whatever it took to save him from his true fate. 
      
    Would her thirst for power get in the way?
