In 200BC, frankincense was worth its weight in gold, making Arabia was the envy
of the world. But wealth comes at a cost: the precious resin had to be
transported along the Frankincense Road, a dangerous route through rocky
mountains and barren desert.
Alia is a princess in a dwindling kingdom
that lies on the Frankincense Road. Having grown up hearing tales of Bilqis, the
Queen of Sheba, she dreams of finding a way to restore her kingdom’s former
might. When a caravan journeying to the mysterious incense lands stops to take
on travellers, she sees her chance.
She soon realises, however, that her
trust in the caravan leaders has been misguided. They are not mere incense
merchants, but traitors and mercenaries. Alia’s journey soon turns from
dangerous to life-threatening.
The Frankincense Trail is a story that
transports the reader to a time and place reminiscent of the Arabian Nights

who could cause the apocalypse.Krishani thinks he’s doomed until he
meets Kaliel, the one girl on the island of Avristar who isn’t afraid of him.
She’s unlike the other girls, she swims with merfolk, talks to trees and blooms
flowers with her touch. What he doesn’t know is that she’s a flame, one of nine
individually hand crafted weapons, hidden in the body of a seemingly harmless
