About the Book:

In Somnion, men don't have magic anymore. Legends say that they displeased the gods, and that their magical gifts were taken away as punishment--but the gods left magic in nature as a reminder of what men lost. This world is home to Grey, a deserted soldier from the King's Steel in Lumina, and to Kayden, who defies legend with the dragon blood that runs in his veins and gives him the ability to control fire. When these two men come together, Kayden's need for protection on his journey north provides the perfect cover for Grey to hide from any who might try to track him down after his desertion--and a way to earn a personal sense of redemption for abandoning the kingdom where his loyalty still lies.

Author's Note:

I took this story down for a long time while I fought with it, but it's been through some revisions and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. I really respect reviews that give commentary on your reading experience. Is there a place where you were bored? I'd love to know. If you lose interest or decide not to read further, it's especially helpful for me to know where and why. Thank you!
