Charassi’s Fae Queen
An orphan searching for her future unlocks a destiny she never imagined…
War has engulfed Destia, reaching even the remote country-side, where foundling Eva Thirsk lives. When army recruiters come to town, Eva sees a chance to find a place where she truly belongs—something she’s never found on her adopted family’s farm. She enlists, hoping for adventure…and perhaps a chance to learn what happened to her parents.
But when one of her missions goes disastrously wrong, a powerful enemy is accidentally freed. The Venistrare Warlock, sealed away eons ago to protect Destia, has been unleashed—and things begin to change for Eva.
Strange visions, an electric sense of energy, and an odd feeling of deep connection to Perrell, the pack dragon she’s befriended… If she didn’t know better, Eva would think she’s somehow gained magic. Including the ability to bond to a dragon, but that’s not possible at her age…is it?
As the war rages on, the stakes grow higher each day. Can Eva and Perrell figure out Eva’s new powers in time—or will they be consumed by the fires of annihilation?
Dragon rider school is far more dangerous than Eva ever dreamed it would be…
She and the dragon Perrell have arrived at Fairspell Academy, ready to begin their training. But the prejudices that plagued them in Scaldrift are even worse in the capital. Everyone thinks Eva’s from the wrong social class to become a dragon rider, and Perrell is far too small to become a battle dragon. How can they prove themselves if they’re not even allowed to try?
It’s up to Eva to prove herself once more—but her magic behaves in strange ways. Eva wields earth magic, but she can also see air and fire magic. She might be able to mix the three—but that’s strictly forbidden.
When Eva and Perrell fail their first test, they must prepare for a tournament that will finally prove their worth—or see them kicked out of the academy. Mixing magic is forbidden, and could land Eva in serious trouble. But when disaster strikes at the tournament and lives are on the line, she may have no choice…
For Eva and her dragon, the war has only just begun…
Eva’s visit home is cut short when Prince Francis arrives with an urgent mission. Her ability to sense Venistrare’s magic – the same ability that led to her saving the prince’s life – could help them find the key to undermining Venistrare’s power. There’s just one catch: her ability to use more than one kind of magic must remain secret.
The prince doesn’t know that Eva is keeping another secret – she shares the same bloodline as the sinister Warlock. If the others find out, there’s no telling what they’ll do. Will they trust in all that she’s done… or will they turn against her?
As the Warlock’s forces gain strength, Destia reels from one defeat to another. Whole villages have been struck down by Venistrare’s dangerous abilities. And Eva faces an impossible choice. She can do as Prince Francis commands and keep her abilities a secret. Or she can embrace her forbidden power, face the Warlock head-on… and risk losing everything.
