Killian’s Flight is a YA Fantasy novel set in the Archipelago, a group of islands united by one thing, an economy centered around their magic system, Orbs. Yet the Orbs are dying, the economy close to collapse, and the magic users desperate for a chance to renew their one claim to power and strength.
When Killian is sold to a man named Renzin, he comes to realize that not only can he harness the power of the Orbs, but his master is actually a pirate. Killian discovers that he is one of only a handful who can use all 16 Orbs, not just one or a familial group. But with that knowledge comes a price. Using the Orbs makes him physically ill, a problem that grows stronger the more he uses the magic. The longer he stays with the pirates, the closer he gets to the realization of what lays at the heart of the Orbs’ power and that the pirates with whom he sails are not what they seem.
I’ll keep you appraised of the status of the draft as I go along. I am excited about this one and looking forward to getting it completed this year (2015). If you want to know more about it, leave a message in the comments below.
