One cure can save them all...

Princess Jovi's sheltered life has taught her nothing about Orendor, the kingdom she will one day rule. Longing for adventure isn't the same as being thrust in the middle of one, which is exactly what happens when the Frost Mages attack the castle in Kingsperch.

Determined to save her kingdom, Jovi must gather an army of brave warriors to defeat the Frost Mages and protect the people she loves. She seeks help from the bravest Mammoth Rider in all of Orendor—her fearless uncle, Meical.

Jovi will endure harrowing trials she never imagined she’d face, but as a daring new enemy emerges from the darkness, Jovi will discover a startling truth about herself that might open the door to a brand new future.

Will she choose the lives of many, or the heart of one?

Land of Strength and Sorrow by Cassandra Fear
(Secrets of Orendor, #1)

Land of Strength and Sorrow (Secrets of Orendor #1)It started with the death of a child, the lone act of one mage, but it would create a nightmare that could only end in a bitter war, unless one young princess can open the door to a new world and a new understanding. But first, she must discover the young woman within and learn what her heart is telling her.

Jovi never thought of herself as a warrior, particularly as her father, the King of Orender, kept her locked up within the castle grounds, guards as her constant shadows. Because of the cruel act of one mage, the Frost Mages had been cursed to suffer as the King and Queen did the day they lost their first-born child. Years later and the mages approach, wishing the curse to be lifted but an angry king will refuse and unleash the horrors of war on the land.

Desperate to end the war and save her kingdom, Jovi will undertake a quest to a forbidden land where she seek out the aid of a band of warriors forbidden in the kingdom. Jovi must convince her estranged uncle to return to the castle and protect not only the land of his birth, but the brother he left behind in anger. Time is running out, and a new and terrifying enemy has emerged, strong enough to destroy both the Frost Mages and the kingdom unless Jovi can unite her own unlikely army and arrive in time. She will also have to trust in her heart to choose the right path, does she choose young love over her kingdom or will the choice be made for her? Sometimes, the decisions we make can crush us, sometimes they will help us spread our wings and give us strength and vision.

LAND OF STRENGTH AND SORROW by Cassandra Fear has the magic of adventure, the edge of razor-sharp pain and animosity and the coming of age for a young woman who will discover what it means to be a true leader with heart. Meet magical creatures, feel their loyalties, love and determination to do the right thing against a deadly evil that has come out of the shadows.

An enchanting tale with a touch of darkness, innocence, and battle scenes that will have your adrenaline pumping, because no one is ever too old for a good fairy tale!


I’m Cassandra Fear. I’m an avid reader who can’t get enough of the written world, but I’m also a YA writer of fantasy and contemporary novels. On the side, I’m also a freelance editor who wants to help self-published and indie writers make it in this industry. It’s hard and grueling, but I think the reason I make such a great editor is because I had to learn how to do it to make my novels the best they could be. Small press publishers are fantastic. This is in no way knocking what they offer, but…most of them cut corners when it comes to editing. There’s no content editing, only grammar and typos. So, I strive to do my absolute best for you as a writer. I’ve been in your shoes and I understand. We are all trying to live the same dream, and even if mine doesn’t come true, I’m going to work my hardest to make sure yours does.

Other than writing and reading, I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband that support me in everything I do. Being a writer, sometimes I’m not around as much as I’d like to be, but they understand that and give me the time I need to get the words on the page. My family is the reason I dream so big. I want to teach my children your dreams can come true, all it takes is a little hard work and a whole lot of dedication.

I love animals. I have two dogs, Smoochie and Marley, both of whom I rescued and gave a loving home. I also have a rescue cat, Ping, who we’ve had a good 10 years. And, we take care of a 55-gallon fish tank, home to all sorts of freshwater fish. But, my favorite are all the catfish.

I hope you’ll stop in, take a look around and if you like what you see, my books are available on Amazon. If you need editing services, click the link and shoot me a message. But feel free to contact me any time. I love to talk and make new friends.
