WARRIOR OF MAGICK by Jessica Wayne
There is a war coming. And it will change everything.
For Sienna Faremin, staying alive has been merely a byproduct of the torture she received for over a decade. Running one mission after another for the Magick council, she is nothing more than their personal assassin, leaving her hands bloodier than most. When she's tasked with killing a man believed to be the last surviving member of a Guardian family, Sienna accepts, only to discover the man she's supposed to kill, is none other than Daxon Ward, one of only two survivors she saved the night the Guardian academy burned to the ground.
As she dives deeper into the truth behind the attack, Sienna discovers a web of lies and deceit carefully woven into place in order to cover a deadly plot that would change the realm…forever.
Excerpt from WARRIOR OF MAGICK
A cloaked man stood in the center of a sea of bodies. At least a dozen men and women who’d come into the pub for a drink at some point were now drained of life, their blood splattered on the floor and walls.
Dead eyes stared back at her, and she inwardly pulled for her magic.
The cloaked man dropped a body he was holding and turned, his face nearly completely obscured from the hood of his cloak.
“You,” the man growled.
“I take it we’ve met before?”
The visible part of his mouth turned up in a gruesome smile. “You’ve seen my handywork a time or two, but this would be the first time we’ve met face-to-face.”
“Handywork? You’ll have to be more specific,” Sienna said, her power surging through her veins.
The man smiled again. “Why are you here, Sage?”
“Now, how about we get to know each other before you start asking me such personal questions.”
The man chuckled. “I see you’re going to be a problem.” Raising his hands, he whispered something Sienna couldn’t quite make out.
Eyes of the dead shot open, the pupils fully dilated, completely obliterating any white.
“Necromancer,” Sienna whispered. They were rare and hunted for their abilities. To have one in Tolonix was unheard of.
“Happy feasting, my children,” he said and turned toward the stairs.
The dead stood, turning toward her with open mouths and gnashing teeth. Sienna unsheathed her blade. Because they were reanimated by powerful magic, they were impervious to her own. She was going to have to fight her way through. “I know I said I wanted a fight, but now is really not the time,” she said, clutching her blade.
They continued toward her, no intelligence in their movements, driven only by their desire to eat. And tonight, it seemed she was the only one on the menu.
Slicing out, Sienna managed to ram her blade into the eye socket of a woman who’d come the closest.
A man reached for her, and Sienna ducked, rolling out of the way just in time. Driving her short sword up, it rammed through his jaw and up into his skull. He fell forward, and she barely missed being pinned beneath his weight.
“This is just not the right time at all!” she yelled and dove to the side when two more of the dead reached for her.

Meet Jessica Wayne
Jessica Wayne was born and raised in southern California where she and her family trained horses. She grew up traveling to different competitions, as well as showing sheep and rabbits for 4-H and the FFA.
After moving to Texas with her family, Jessica joined the Army National Guard where she served for seven years which she believes is the reason she hates wearing matching socks. She loves coffee and wine and is a believer in dragons, unicorns, and the power of true love.
From the moment she was old enough to read and write, Jessica knew she wanted to create her own stories and share them with the world, and since she likes to write what she reads, Jessica writes everything from romantic fantasy to contemporary romance under the pen name J.W. Ashley.
She has been writing full time for the past three years and is a stay at home mom. She currently resides in Texas with her husband and their three children, their German Shepherd (who doesn't quite understand he's not a lap dog), and their cat (who thinks he's just as big as the dog).
