I bring exciting news today! Wonderful Indie author, M.S. Fowle has a new YA novel coming in January 2013, titled THE SIRE. It will be exclusively available as an ebook on Amazon. It is an honor to be able to share her cover with all of you awaiting fans! So are you ready?!
Enter a realm of magick mirroring that of Europe in the late 1930s, one illustrating persecution under an authoritarian regime, a girl’s struggle to see beyond prejudice, and a boy’s lack of faith in humanity.
The era jives with jazz and swing, while giant boats sail the sky, and war divides a great land as its king hunts down any with the gifts of magick, the Mages. Claire Royce reached her fifteen years believing Mages only wicked and selfish, but she can’t condone her king’s war. So when she sees his soldiers harassing a hungry street kid, she naturally tries to help the teen boy escape. But her deed only makes her a target. That’s when the boy miraculously comes to her rescue and saves them both with his unmatched powers as a Mage.
As young Walter Tully tries to convince Claire that Mages are not the enemy, the two soon learn that their king’s true intent is to find the most powerful Mage of all: the creator of magick, The Sire. Differences aside, Claire and Walter must find The Sire first or risk the corruption of all magick, as well as the world. They just need to stop arguing long enough to pull it off.
Sounds pretty darn interesting right? I know that I am completely and utterly excited to read this in January! Plus, it’s historical fiction as well! Just my cup of tea! The cover is also just…BEAUTIFUL. Simplistic, yet captivating. Personally, it reminds me of Peter Pan and Wendy – them flying (or maybe falling) in/from the sky. But at the same time it’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before. It adds to the mystery and magic that surrounds the story, making it intriguing and eye-catching. I’ll definitely be adding this to my TBR list!
