ABOUT Toni Sweeney

Toni Sweeney
I write mostly sci-fi and fantasy, with an occasional sidestep into horror and westerns.  Thus far, I have 8 novels published as well as many short stories online at Amazon Shorts and in magazines.


Riven kan Ingan is cursed by the gods for denying them.  Now, he has to work through his punishment, which includes loving a woman who can never be his, as he battled a wielder of black magic to free his sovereign's daughter.

"When the red raw mists cleared, he was alone. That was how the Mortuaries found him – face down in the bloody slush where the heat from his body had melted the snow… the black war-horse standing guard above him…"

This opener more than snapshots the enchantment of The Chronicles of Riven the Heretic: Blood Seek; a novel utterly impossible to turn aside. From arresting cover graphics to Toni V. Sweeney’s impeccable approach, her marvel of beautiful linguistics, brisk humour before a grim mood unearths the ineffable, fate is sealed by the skill of a Weaver, the position of a loom. Magic ever present, insight as staggering as the writing is ardent, this chronicle swiftly journeys tarnished innocence, explosive pairing, love gained… and lost… in the story of Riven Kan Ingan, a traveler, a young disbeliever, and the mysterious slave, Bar-Bara. Characters are well defined, intriguing, as they are charming or odious. As a clandestine Weaver of Lives bends over her loom, Toni V. Sweeney carves yet another sensation.
