On Its Way



"This. Was. Amazing. 

I started reading without really having much sense of what the story was about. . . And it totally, immersively plunged me into a world I didn't expect to be visiting, but couldn't stay away from. The settings, the characters, the magic—everything was novel, compelling, and totally worth the stay."

Reminiscent of Frankenstein and tales by the Brothers Grimm, this debut novel stands out as a compelling, original story that has the feel of a classic.

The city of Bryre suffers under the magic of an evil wizard. Because of his curse, girls sicken and disappear without a trace, and all live in fear. No one is allowed outside after dark. Night is when Kymera comes to the city, with a cloak disguising her wings, the bolts in her neck, and her spiky tail. Her mission is to rescue the girls of Bryre. Despite Kym's caution in going secretively, a boy named Ren sees and befriends her . . . but what he knows will change her world forever.
