When their ship is attacked, they rely on a witch to help them.
About the Author:
Alexandria Brim is a writer in NYC. As a young girl, she loved to read; so much so that she won the reading award. It was only natural to start writing.
This is what I like to call my "sweeping epic starring a cast of thousands." I've been working on it for about a year now. A few people have seen this but I'm looking for more concrit about it. One important thing to keep in mind is that I view my world as an alternate version of Europe. Engledale is a more medieval country with the people having prominently Irish names. Aldonia is more advanced, similar to the 18th century Englightenment, with prominently French names. Lladsburg is in between--Renaissance--with prominently German names. Note: I altered the prologue slightly due to new ideas.
