by F.P. Spirit
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: December 2016

Summary:

Magic is easy. 

That’s what Glolindir thought, until he came across his first real monster. 

Luckily, he survived, thanks to his new “friends.”

Lloyd, the reckless young warrior with blades of fire. 

Seth, the sarcastic halfling who might be an assassin.

Aksel, the genius little gnome whose very touch can heal.

Little did they know that things were about to go from bad to worse.

After one hundred and fifty years of relative peace, dark forces stir around the little town of Ravenford—monsters, black magic, creatures of the night.

The only thing standing between Ravenford and certain destruction is this band of young misfits.

Glolindir spotted the monstrous orc at the same time as
Seth. The wizard waited till it charged, then lifted his arm and pointed a
finger at it. As he did so, mana, the energy that flows in and around all
things, gathered within him. He drew the energy inward with concentrated will
and focused it with a gesture. All that was needed now was a verbal command to
trigger it.
The orc had closed half the gap to the lead wagon when Glo
spoke the words that released the spell, “Nullam Telum.” A projectile of
arcane energy leapt from his finger and spiraled out toward the charging
creature. The purple missile met the beast in midstride and connected with an
audible thud.
The monster appeared neither shaken, nor hurt. Instead it
merely glanced down at its chest, reached up with its free hand, and touched
the smoldering spot.
Glo’s eyes went wide. This huge orc was far tougher than he
imagined—he had severely miscalculated. He watched in horror as the creature
dropped its hand and turned its feral gaze toward him. An evil grin spread
across the monster’s maw, then it charged.
Glo froze in place, unable to move a muscle. He had been so
sure of himself. He had studied his spells and creatures and practiced his art
tirelessly. Yet none of that had prepared him for this. Here was a real live
monster bearing down on him, fully intent on ripping him limb from limb. It
swiftly closed the gap between them and would be on him in seconds.
My father was right.
He was woefully unprepared to cope with this. At that moment, he wished that he
had listened to his father’s advice and stayed in the safety of their elven
home.
Aksel climbed out of the wagon just in time to see the
creature rushing toward them. “Well, that doesn’t look good.”
“Agreed,” Glo said through barely moving lips.
