Shards For His Gift Preview & Chat

Hi, I’m Melinda Kucsera and today I’m reading the first two chapters from my latest book, Shards For His Gift! (Curse Breaker #10)

What's the book about:

While Sarn recuperates from his wounds and deals with his sentient magic, a strange gift arrives without any information about who sent it or why. Only a handful people know where he’s staying now, and none would send him a gift.

For his son, this present is a mystery that must be solved if he could just get his hands on it. But everyone conspires to keep it away from him until the commander of the Rangers goes in search of the dragons under the mountain. Then everyone suddenly has larger problems than where the mysterious crystal came from.

Ran gets more than he bargained for when the gift does a lot more than glow. Once again, Sarn must rise from his sickbed and save his son, this time, from the clutches of a magical crystal.

This cozier fantasy adventure picks up where Curse Breaker Revealed leaves off and answers the question: what will happen now that Sarn’s biggest secret is revealed?

Where to get the book:

About your host, Melinda Kucsera:

I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author who wrote and published 20+ books since 2016 across 5 series. I write epic fantasy adventures about families and magical creatures who’re just trying to survive in a world that hates and fears magic but is steeped in it.

My books are full of magic and mayhem, but somehow, even the darkest adventure always ends well. ⁠Join me⁠ every week for a new story: ⁠https://www.mkucsera.com/welcomecharacters⁠

What series do I write?

  • The Curse Breaker series chronicles the adventures of a reluctant mage (Sarn), his son, and the magical creatures they befriend as they fight to save their underground city from monsters, ancient evils, and a variety of magical threats.

  • The His Angelic Keeper series follows a ghost girl who just wants to save her still-living family, not stop a demon invasion or the literal apocalypse, but she’ll do that too if she must. (This is a humorous series that stars Sarn’s twin sister from the Curse Breaker series).

  • The Robin of Larkspur series follows Robin, a woman who just wants to save her daughter from the mythical creatures that kidnapped her baby. Sarn tries to help her.

  • The Divergent Heroes series is supposed to star two knights who are partially disabled but a younger version of Sarn keeps stealing the scenes.

  • The Curse Breaker’s Companion series which includes side quests, wacky what ifs, and stories from my newsletter of Sarn and his family in our world because they won’t stay inside the epic fantasy books they star in. They’d rather visit me through a portal conveniently located in their cave.

Why am I here?

I want to give you more fun adventures, more often, and create a community of fantasy readers to share ideas with, new stories, artwork, and have fun. So I’m taking the plunge and posting chapters of my upcoming books, bonus content, podcasts, videos, audiobooks, boxed sets, deleted scenes, alternate endings and beginnings, Patron-only stories, and more.

I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books.
