Dream Kings Courier
Welcome to the home of The Dream King's Courier franchise from author Patrice Sikora
(The third title in The Dream King's Courier series)
The gods vie for power again in the latest book in The Dream King's Courier fantasy series. The savvy deities are jockeying for the best position in a struggling frontier town that is about to see explosive growth into a major shipping port. The crowds coming in will mean greater power and stature for those gods who can win their loyalty. Nathao, the King of Dreams, has foreseen this, and is ready to benefit, but his constituents are suddenly being harassed. His Courier, Gwen Revmore, must identity and neutralize the source of the unrest. To do so, she must work with an immature local god, politically astute local guilds, and hostile homesteaders in the hills who want little to do with the townspeople. Gwen discovers carnivorous ponies, thwarts a bombing of Nathao's chapel, and survives a near-deadly attack that forces her body to morph and become more than it has ever been. New alliances, an unexpected death and a deep loss will mean a sea change in Gwen's life as a coastal town becomes a worldwide economic and political force.

It's never good to be stuck in the middle of a family squabble. This is especially true when it involves the gods.
Gwen Revmore, Courier to the increasingly powerful Nathao, King of Dreams, finds herself in this exact situation as the King's brother Luke and his wife Persephone prepare for the birth of their son. Persephone's decision to defy her mother and slip away to have the baby outside of her mother's temples sets off a power struggle that leads to the revelation of a key secret involving Persephone, Luke, and Nathao.
Gwen becomes the unwilling messenger between mother and daughter-and an unwitting pawn in their feud. Demma wants what she's owed and will make sure she gets it, even if it turns Gwen's world upside down and decides the future for her son Sam.
Gwen already has problems of her own. She fears a Solitary named Kebo wants to settle the score for the death of his friend, Nathao'srival Bayel. She hopes to convince him that Bayel went rogue. Doing so may win her a friend and mentor when she needs one the most.
(The First Title in The Dream King's Courier Franchise)
Animal control officer Gwen Revmore has no use for the gods. They've never answered any of her prayers-even after a tragic accident leaves her husband dead, and her young son gravely injured.
But after her estranged grandfather shows up at the hospital to urge her to try one more time to save the boy, Gwen decides there's nothing left to lose. She asks Nathao, the powerful King of Dreams, for help, and he agrees to save Sam-but like most favors, the help will come at a price. King Nathao needs to replace an employee killed in an attack on his lands, and he promises to save Gwen's son if she agrees to take on that very important job of Courier.
Gwen will work closely with Nathao's other staff, including her grandfather, and serve as the King's public face for his congregations around the world. She will also be his official emissary to other gods.
Gwen soon finds herself caught in a dangerous conflict as Nathao and rival god Bayel struggle for followers and power. In a world where gods are created and shaped by human belief, these beings will stop at nothing to gain more worshippers-regardless of who is caught in the crossfire.
