The CSFF is touring:
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Two thieves find an abandoned child in the woods, lying in a footprint made by an unknown creature. Cloaked in mystery, the girl calling herself Auralia grows up in a community of convicted criminals who have been exiled from House Abascar–an oppressed kingdom threatened by encroaching Beastmen and persecuted by its own king.
Auralia develops an unsettling–and forbidden–talent for transforming simple things into manifestations of color that enchant and amaze all who behold them. Her talents open doors–from the gates of the kingdom to the cages of Abascar’s dungeons. This sets the stage for chaos as she divides the king from his son, and sets in motion events that could transform–or ruin the four great Houses of the Expanse.
This book is enchanting. Auralia is such in engaging character, I could hardly wait to read more. Auralia's world is just as real and captivating. I love the names he chose for the creatures. Unique and yet almost familiar, as if you somehowknew in the back of your mind that there really was a cracker jaw bird.
Don't take my word for it, check it out for yourself. Visit the author's site and hear him read chapter 1. I dare you not to be hooked.
