An anthology of warriors of space and magic
"The Summoned: Rise of the Phantom Knights" is featured in Bellator An Anthology of Warriors of Space & Magic edited by Mia Darien.
Science Fiction and Fantasy, two genres that are both unalike and inextricably entwined, stretching the imagination to the expansive boundaries of time, space, and magic. These boundaries are often filled with warriors and war, fights and causes worth fighting for, and that's what you'll find in this anthology.
From fighting aliens in space to demons in a world of magic, you'll find many stories to suit your starship's entertainment collection or your favorite bard at the local tavern...or just your imagination here and now. Sit back and enjoy twelve stories from authors both familiar and new!

Where It All Began...
The Summoned is one of my favorite worlds to write about. There are so many characters and magic systems to explore. Rise of the Phantom Knights is one of multiple beginnings happening concurrently, as this story takes place across several dimensions.
The original story followed a princess's maid. Readers loved the maid so much, she became the princess. The story follows her relationship with a summoner trained by the Archsage, Sialla Danurian, and their journey across multiple dimensions to find each other.
While Sialla (right) is not featured in this short story, her life is impacted and driven by the events that take place. The artwork was designed with the video game in mind, and I think it captures Sialla's personality well. She's intelligent, elegant, and powerful.
I can't wait to finish this story. There won't be one or two books. It will be my largest series, and I can't wait to share it with you.
