Here’s the detail:
A determined girl. A cranky mage. An unwanted heir. A mysterious magical city.
Kyra’s always been drawn to the magic of spellpages. She’s determined to leave her small village far behind and become a scribe, wielding the power of magic through her pen. But a simple favour for her sister goes disastrously awry, destroying Kyra’s dreams in an instant.
What went wrong? Devastated, she accepts an offer to find out from a stranger, who sees growing power within Kyra, potentially stronger than spellpages or any living mage. While she struggles to understand her magic, she’s surrounded by the greed and ambition of the court, uncertain who to trust. The answers may lie within the glowing walls of the Imperial City, but its magic is strong and the unwary vanish without trace on its streets. Kyra will have to learn fast to survive.
The Fire Mages is written by Pauline M Ross, with cover design by Deranged Doctor Designs and proofreading by Coinlea Services.
