A rebel leader seeks her help to destroy a regime; an old foe pursues her with a vengeance; and as her power grows, Kaylan's inner demons begin to seep through the cracks…

Time is running out.
With two Relics now in her possession, Kaylan must claim the final three, then find a way to destroy them all.

The Relic is the only one who understands her, but its every word could be a lie. Every chance she gives it could be her final error.
As the perils of magic become clearer, Kaylan begins to wonder: will trusting the Relic lead to victory – or to death?
Talem Press is a new publisher of fantasy books and is an imprint of Writer’s Edit.
Writer’s Edit was first established back in 2013 as an online literary magazine and small press for emerging authors.
After publishing three creative writing anthologies (Kindling Volumes I, II and III) to much success, Writer's Edit went on to become one of the world’s leading online learning platforms for writers.
As the editors experimented with the site’s direction, they came to realise that their readers were big lovers of the fantasy genre.
Readers were demanding more articles on fantasy fiction, but more than that, they also wanted a place to submit their own fantasy stories.
Thus, it was only natural for Writer’s Edit to evolve and start its own fantasy imprint.
Talem Press was created in 2017.
We are a completely independent, proudly
Australian-owned publishing house based in Sydney.
Our first book, Helen Scheuerer’s Heart of Mist, became a bestseller in under 24 hours of release.
Things started to snowball from there, and we opened our doors for general submissions.
We want to give all our authors the same success and the same kickstart to their career.
For too long the publishing industry has needed a shake-up.
Over the years, we’ve watched authors suffer through outdated submissions processes that take months, sometimes years.
We’ve felt the frustration of sending work out into the void only to never hear back.
That’s where we’re different.
Talem is the latin word for ‘empower’, which is exactly what we aim to do.
We want to empower our authors, and we want our books to empower our readers.
Here at Talem, we pride ourselves on our transparency and ongoing communication. We build long lasting, supportive relationships with all of our authors.
Once an author is welcomed into the fold, they’re part of the family.
We believe in the life-changing potential of stories, and everything we publish seeks to provide inspiration, and escape.
We’re particularly passionate about unlikely female heroes, mysterious magic and out-of-this-world story-telling.
Our books are published in print and digital formats, with a strong emphasis on the digital. We focus our energy on online distribution and getting our authors the returns they deserve.
Our vision for the future is to bring an incredible list of fantasy titles into the world.
And above all else, we want our authors to succeed, and be free to pursue the writing life they love.
Thank you for getting in touch!
One of our colleagues will get back to you shortly.
Have a great day!
