Volume 1  

The Timeless Citadel

It watches her every move.

Can one teen take down the shadowy power that wants her dead?

Eighteen-year-old Briseis is so over her boring high school existence. So when her catatonic physicist father regains consciousness after seven years, she can’t say no to his risky experiment. But after she awakens in a fortress of never-ending knowledge as a chosen student of the secret elite, Briseis can’t tell if she’s arrived in a dream or a nightmare.


Trapped without answers in the ominous Citadel that governs all, the daring teenager must uncover the truth to survive. But with her actions monitored and time itself playing tricks, her only escape from the killer stronghold could be to join a secret rebellion.  


Can Briseis destroy the darkness that controls the world and set the people free?


The Timeless Citadel is the pulse-pounding first tale in the Briseis YA fantasy series. If you like unshakable heroines, extra-dimensional adventures, and supernatural mysteries, then you’ll love Tiphaine Siovel’s imaginative story.

Volume 3 

The time keeper

In the French Press

A first novel authored by Tiphaine Siovel, Briseis is a fantasy targeted at teenagers, but not only!  Very entertaining, light but with a deep meaning, and joyfully surrealistic, this first act of a 4 book series opens enough exciting leads for us to want to read the rest as soon as possible. In other words: we want more!
