Mistress of the Wind

Arucadi: The Beginning - Book 1
DOUBLE-DRAGON PUBLISHING © 2012

Windspeaker Kyla Cren gathers news from the wind and passes on to her village its warnings about mindstealers, creatures that rob human minds, leaving their victims insensible and helpless. Because Kyla’s parents were victims of mindstealers, the need for revenge consumes her. She attacks two mindstealers and rescues their victim, but gets no satisfaction from the act. The ungrateful victim, a powerful mage, thrusts upon her the care of Claid, who appears to be an appealing young child. He’s not a child, the Mage Alair declares, and challenges her to discover what Claid really is. That challenge sends her from her native village on a journey of discovery that takes her into the wider world beyond her isolated valley, a world in which machines have replaced magic. Harrowing experiences teach her more about herself than about Claid and eventually bring her back to Mage Alair, whom she joins in a scheme to destroy the mindstealers, a plan which might result in tragedy but which could also lead Kyla to the full truth about Claid’s nature and her own.

DOUBLE-DRAGON PUBLISHING © 2013

Wonder workers have come to the town of Carey in Arucadi's heartland, and the town will never be the same. Ed Robbins, known to the townsfolk as Simple Eddie, discovers that he is magically gifted, and his life is transformed. Abigail Dormer, respected headmistress of the Dormer Primary School for Young Ladies, does not believe in magic and is convinced that Kyla and Marta are charlatans until Abigail's own magic abilities reveal themselves, much to her consternation. Jerome Esterville, rebellious son of a pious mother, also discovers a gift, but it is wild magic, not from the Power-Giver, and if not restrained will turn him to terrible evil. Councilor Hardwick, head of the Carey City Council, hopes to receive power and, when that gift is denied him, sets the council and most of the town against the "wonderworkers." Devastation looms for the town, and Kyla and Marta face death. Ed's magical gifts may provide a solution, but only if Kyla and Marta can train him before disaster overtakes them all.

Marta and Ed Robbins, long childless, are thrilled when their friend Kyla Cren tells them of an orphaned infant in need of parents. They travel to the city of Port-of-Lords where Kyla leads the Gifted Community. That community gathers to celebrate the baby's Naming-Day, a joyous occasion that ends in disaster when an old enemy kidnaps and threatens to kill the child. Marta, Ed, Kyla, and Veronica Crowell, Kyla's ward, have all encountered Jerome Esterville previously and know what a dangerous foe he is. Still, although the Community members have differing powers and are at various levels of ability, they believe that by pooling their magical powers, they can easily overcome a solitary foe. They soon learn that Jerome has honed his own magical skills and has greater strength than their small community is prepared to contend with. As the fourteen members of the Gifted Community prepare to contend with Jerome, egos clash, powers collide, tempers flare, and buried fears surface to paralyze the power of those who have encountered Jerome previously. Kyla's leadership falters, and Marta and Veronica must step into the gap. Jerome is determined to destroy them all. The Gifted must be led to cooperate and coordinate their efforts or they are doomed.

Inner demons haunt them all: China Terrano must face and overcome her incestuous love for her half-brother, Paolo Terrano. Paolo has to accept the rejection of his foster mother, Nida Terrano, and the blame she puts on him for the tragedies her family has suffered. K.T. (Koyne Tamille) Malloran must solve the conflict between her religious calling as a novice in the Daughters of Mercy, her growing love for Paolo, and her feeling of responsibility for India Terrano's fate at the hands of the Patrol. But it is India who must cope with the worst inner demon, for her demon is all too real. India Terrano carries within her a Viseg—a creature that feeds on energy and can spit that energy out with tremendous destructive force. When India's foster father, believed to be the Viseg host, is captured by the Patrol, her anger causes the Viseg to blast forth, revealing its presence to her family and to their enemies. India flees from home and family, finding sanctuary for a time with the Daughters of Mercy. But a terrible discovery drives her from that place of safety and takes her to the Patrol Headquarters in a scheme to free her foster father. The scheme backfires, India is captured by the Patrol, and events are set in motion that will change not only her life but the lives of her mother, her sisters China and Meri, Paolo, and her new friend, K.T. The Viseg, too, must change if India is to survive.

China hopes that love can be rekindled. She's willing to sacrifice anything and anyone to save Paolo but doesn't realize that the required sacrifice may be Paolo himself.
