Today I’d like to talk about a character who often goes unnoticed. She is Princess Mirianna or “Miri” for short. She appears in Sapphire Crucible. In creating Miri, I wanted someone who had been pampered all her life and was discovering hidden strength. Miri is strong willed and highly logical. She doesn’t see why the twins hate Linvin so much and works on the problem. In the end she discovers that Bander is Rander’s pawn in the game and that he bears Linvin no ill will on his own. She works on Bander to stand up to his brother and think for himself. This ends the negative feedback from Linvin’s orders. Miri is quite skilled with a bow and proves her worth in the climactic battle in the Valley of Broken Soldiers. After the battle it is she who dresses the other’s wounds and gets them on horseback in order to escape the oncoming armies. She is intelligent but not wise. This is proved by the ease of which she was caught by the Mandreans. Of course, with this being a fantasy novel she had to be gorgeous and sexy. Yes, Miri is a strong character with many positive attributes. She is a good partner for Linvin and a hard woman to turn down. Will his feelings for her cloud his judgement?
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
