Sans War - Book coverMagda and Malakan are supposed to be sworn enemies. Their people, the Bunog and Tayhu, have been warring over trade routes and territories for nearly a century. So when they clash on the battlefield, both are determined to strike down the other or die trying.

But fate steps in, and the two end up stranded on an island inhabited by orphaned human children. Unwilling to battle in front of innocent eyes, they agree to a truce. It plunges them into a different kind of war, one they have to wage not only on the mysterious monster inhabiting the island but also against their blossoming emotions.

Can two warriors destined to hate actually fall in love?

Author's Note: 

This story was inspired by the nature and mythology of Panay, Philippines. I vacationed to the different scenic destinations of the region in 2019, and they served as the basis for this book's setting and premise. Writing this was an interesting process, because I had to modify the features of the Bunog and Tayhu from their traditional characteristics.
