The Chronicles of Antecede: Lost and Found

The Chronicles of Antecede:  Lost and Found

by C.M. Sage




GENRE: Fantasy






Sometimes things are lost for a very long time...and then they are found.


Take Gracie for example, a woman who lost everything, her life, her family, even her name, but now she is a Cathalian warrior of Antecede blessed with powers, which aren't yet fully realized.  Her elder and nemesis, Donavan, finally granted the former professor an opportunity to train a new warrior.  Her joy turns to shock when she meets her great, great, great, great grandson, Henry, accompanied by his wisecracking best friend, Milo.  Henry recognizes his long dead ancestor right away, and it doesn't take the Cathalians long to realize that this meeting was no accident.


Gracie and the warriors of Antecede soon discover that they aren't the only ones laying a claim on their new charges.  Menacing enemies from the South and their hired mercenary assassin, Revilan, the Bowman, have also taken an interest.  Come along with Gracie, Donavan, and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it, and along the way discover what else was lost.






Gracie tapped his shoulder, “Milo, did you notice anything unusual before I arrived to meet you? Did you see anyone on the shore, even from a far distance?” Milo reached down to ruffle Rosie’s ears before he answered, which was fortunate because at that exact moment a vicious arrow barely missed grazing his ear before flying by into the tall grass.


Gracie heard a sound like a muffled curse far off in the distance. The language wasn’t one she recognized. She knocked Milo flat to the ground, so that he was no longer a target and signaled for her little ones to stay down. Several more arrows flew in quick succession from the same direction. Gracie managed to pull a long dagger from under her coat before she also went down. Blue fell onto her back next to Gracie, a knife in each hand. Gracie looked at Obi, who knew what to do. He crawled away to search for and retrieve an arrow.


In the interim Blue and Gracie rose to their knees, keeping their heads down, and signaling for Milo to stay down. He nodded, and muttered in a shaky voice, “You don’t have to tell me twice. I may never get up!”

A Word With the Author

What are your favorite TV shows?

I love sitcoms (Big Bang TheoryFriendsAbbott Elementary).  I love Bridgerton, Sanditon, Outlander…I feel a little lost when the seasons end or when the series end.  I love British TV…all the murder and detective mysteries.

What is your favorite meal?

I love pizza.  I also love big breakfast or brunch foods.

If you were to write a series of novels, what would it be about?

Well I am, so it’s a fantasy about a heroine and her fellow warriors who try their best to protect all that is dear.

Is there a writer you idolize? If so who?

I don’t think I idolize anyone, but I respect and really love the works of many writers including Louisa May Alcott, Diana Gabaldon, Jasper Fforde, Gail Carriger, Cookie O’Gorman, T.S. Eliot, Emily Dickinson, and many others.

How did you come up for the title of this book?

I thought about the whole story and what was happening, and I came up with a list.  Lost and Found seemed to fit the story best.
