The towers fell over a century ago, and the Good King united the land. Under his voice the Thaumatists took the knee or took the sword. The University still stands, but for how long?
This story is broken up into two parts. Chronologically, the two parts overlap.
Emile, a girl with a Talent not seen since the good king’s war as she tries to find help to save her beloved father from a cruel accident.
Julie, raised in a small farming village on her quest to become someone people will sing about.
Wendel, a recent graduate of the University, an intense school that functions first as a police force to control the use of magic and secondly as an educational institution.
Demetrius, a servant at the school who loses his home and his safety.
Edits are ongoing. Reviews and comments will only help the editing the process, and I am grateful for any and all input.
So, if you have been reading already, Jericho has been removed. It’s been brought to my attention that his chapters detract from the flow of the narrative. They still exist, and are still going to be made available at some point in some way shape or form, but for the time being what happens with him and the king in Puissant city will be off camera so to speak.
