The Third Age

Soon he was alert and up, jumping around to get dressed. “Why didn’t you wake me? I could have helped!” he said, pulling on a pair of pants hurriedly, before tugging them off again when he realised they were hers. Her only pair – she never wore pants in sight of anyone but him. They didn’t fit him half so well.

She raised her eyebrows at his display. “With what?”

He put his hands on his hips and glared at her, wishing he wasn’t naked. Would have been a more impressive picture. Maybe. “I am a trained military officer, if you’ll remember.”

In which Zanny learns something about her niece... #serialfiction

She was surprised, to say the least, that she had lived this long. She had expected Zardria to do away with her worthless life long before the Birthright Ceremony — indeed, had been expecting it for years. The fact that she’d been allowed to draw breath…

In which Jules is forced to participate in military tradition.... #serialfiction

"Oh, Goddesses, no – stop it! No!" Jules shouted, realising what was going on, for the troops were gathering around him now and singing as he was carried off. "Major Jules, it is a military tradition," he heard the bellica call out in admonition. "You…

True to Ghia’s word they rode into Atton as night fell, their horses barely breaking into a sweat. The latest leg of their trip had been passed in silence, both ex-Bellica and Chief Medical Officer deep in thought.

Today, Caelum enjoys watching Yarrow work

Who doesn't love watching a homicidal redhead call errant soldiers to duty?
Caelum loved to watch Yarrow work. Especially when that work was calling errant soldiers to duty. Something she'd not had to do much of, he reflected thankfully; so he doubly enjoyed the show now. ...

_________________________________

Amor vincit omnia. As a new leader, pledged to dark forces, takes the Sceptre, can the embattled, valiant women of Athering prove that the power of love is greater than the love of power?


All Bellica Yarrow wants from life is to stay the course. Her military career fulfills her childhood dreams and affords her a freedom royalty never did. Yarrow doesn't need anything more than the steadfast friendship of her Major, Caelum, and her Chief Medical Officer Jules.

The Goddesses have other plans, however. They set in motion events that threaten the Bellica with madness and despair. Constancy has been Yarrow's standby, but betrayals on every side push her further into chaos. She watches the puppet-Empress, her aunt, destroy the country, and dreads the day Zardria, her power-hungry twin sister, takes the Sceptre and rules openly.

Should Bellica Yarrow keep her military oath, or topple her sister's cruel regime? Can she?

The choice is nearly impossible. The longer she equivocates, the more she risks the lives of everyone she holds dear. Meanwhile, Zardria has her own idea of how events should unfold – and what Yarrow doesn't know could cost the Bellica her life.

What people are saying about Bellica:

Friends, House, and Battlestar Galactica on steroids!
-Kaimana Wolff, La Chiripa

I loved the world building and character development. I've read it multiple times [...] I can't wait for the sequel!
-S. Hamrick, Amazon review

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Bellica. Katje van Loon has created a vivid world filled with well developed characters that are easy to relate to. I look forward to more books from this author.
-cathycr13, Amazon review

Katje’s character development is fantastic. She feeds details about the characters (and there are a lot of them, but don’t let that intimidate you!) in just large enough doses to keep you on your toes. Just when you think you know one of the characters…some new piece of information is released that changes what you thought you knew.
-Mary Malinski, Circle of the Sacred Muse

Bellica is filled with vivid characters, and I greatly enjoyed reading their different viewpoints.  I was also angry when certain characters died, even if it was necessary to the story.  This novel overflows with intrigue, passion, and magek.
-Robin A. Sams, author of Bea and other poems
