Esther’s most recent release, Dorian the Daring, is written for the adventurous at heart. Though it is particularly intended for young adults, it has been enjoyed by young and old, men and women alike. Dorian the Daring is set in a fictional medieval kingdom, and it highlights the story of a young man in his struggle to forgive both those close to him, and those he considers his enemies.
Kicked out of the only home he has ever known, Dorian is forced to decide whether to move on or make things right. To make matters worse, he discovers someone is trying to kill him. Is it his best friend or his proclaimed enemy? Dorian the Daring is a story of adventure, from swordfights to contraband, assassinations to the rescue of fair maidens. Finally, after escaping a dungeon torture scene, Dorian realizes what he has to do–and has the chance to do it.
Esther’s first published book, Royalty in Disguise, is set in a fictional medieval world. It follows the story of a red-haired princess who has a tendency to act impetuously, which gets her into some difficult situations. Royalty in Disguise is written in a style imitating some of Esther’s favorite reading: Victorian era historical fiction.
War doesn’t seem too imminent to Princess Diantha as she deals with the daily troubles of keeping herself in check. But war seems much closer when a new servant is accused of spying. Or is the real peril to be found in a single spy? As the truth emerges, the real threat manages to strike the first blow, and Diantha finds herself masquerading as a maid in the quest to free her brother from the malevolent mastermind behind this growing conflict. Will this man’s bid for a kingdom be struck down? And, just as importantly, will he ever be caught?
