Orphaned as a child, Taliesin was adopted by the Ravens, a clan that makes its living searching battlefields for valuables. Although she yearns to leave the scavenging lifestyle behind, she is good at it and has a knack for finding treasure amongst the fallen.
Civil war is brewing, though, and leaders both good and evil are searching for the magic weapons they need to help their forces achieve victory. The most powerful of these ancient blades is Ringerike, a sword that is said to be both a king-maker and a king-killer; it is a weapon so beautiful that people are transfixed by just the sight of it.
If Taliesin can find Ringerike, she can free herself from her life as a scavenger and save her Clan from the sinister forces out to destroy it. But not all is as it seems, and friends are not always friends; she will have to choose her allies wisely if she is to survive, much less find the sword that could be her salvation.
“Seeker of Magic” initiates the “Realm of Magic” trilogy, an epic fantasy series in the tradition of Tolkien and Feist, where magic is alive and well, and one person could be the savior of the world…or its downfall.

Susanne L. Lambdin (born 1962, Wichita, Kansas) is better known for her ‘based in part’ writing credit for Star Trek: The Next Generation Eps. 76 “Family” – remember when Wesley Crusher met his father on the holodeck when he turned 18 years of age? This was Susanne’s story sold to Star Trek in 1990. Since then she’s dedicated herself to writing fiction.
Having worked for Paramount Pictures from 1986 thru 1994, she beamed home to spend time with her family and to write fiction. Her genres includes horror, supernatural, action/adventure, high fantasy, Gothic and historical romance, steampunk, and sci-fi (of course).
Realm of Magic: Seeker of Magic, Mistress of Magic, and Queen of Magic are part of a fantasy/supernatural trilogy. Follow the adventures of Taliesin, Mistress of the Raven Clan, on the search for the most powerful magical sword in the realm – it’s up to Taliesin to end a civil war and restore magic to a realm where it is outlawed by the king.

Her Dead Hearts Novel series involves teenagers fighting zombies in the Colorado Rockies, and her knowledge of zombies has won her the name of The Zombie Lady among her fans. Five books are published in this series: Morbid Hearts (published in 2012, on the Watermark Books Bestseller List), Forsaken Hearts, Vengeful Hearts, Defiant Hearts and Immortal Hearts.
Authors that inspired her a child: Edgar Rice Burroughs, JR Tolkien, Anne Rice, Frank Yerby, and Marion Zimmer Bradley. She claims to have read every book in her elementary school, reading an average of five books a week. She also writes three to four novels a year (that means she has a stockpile).
When not writing, Susanne attends comic cons throughout the United States and sometimes Cosplays (she loves gals with swords). She’s also been known to write fanfiction on the side; something she calls ‘taking a break’. Her panels on “How to Write Your First Novel”, “The Strategies and Tactics of Writing”, and “Zombies 101” are fun and informative. Helping young, aspiring authors learn the tricks of the trade, along with offering tips and guidelines, are always a part of her panels. “There’s more than enough room in a library for a new novel,” she often tells young writers. “Don’t get discouraged. You’re time will come.”
