Magic of Light
By Tom Costa
For thirty years, the Dark Magic has laid dormant in The World. But now, a Dark Witch is rising, and no one in Farion is safe. Can the Alliance find a new Master of Light Magic in time to stop her from destroying everything they hold dear? Join brothers Kit and Rune Marco as they chase their destinies from their farming home in Doora across the lands of Farion on a quest to defeat the Dark Magic. With the help of Elves, Centaurs, and the Grand Wizard, the Marcos will battle Orcs and Giants and the creatures of the Dark Magic. But will it be enough to save The World once and for all?
Cindy fought to escape her gray Darklander world to prove herself in the human realm with her business smarts. She dresses down, doesn’t use her magic and is a force to be reckoned with.
Ignoring the sizzling passion her demanding warlock lover evokes in her might prove to be the hardest challenge in her life. But enjoying being controlled in the bedroom doesn’t mean she has to give up all she’s fought for.
Book three in the Darklander Lovers series.
Winner of the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel
Startling, unusual, and yet irresistably readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and SF, and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment.
Raised by a half-mad mother who dabbled in magic, Morwenna Phelps found refuge in two worlds. As a child growing up in Wales, she played among the spirits who made their homes in industrial ruins. But her mind found freedom and promise in the science fiction novels that were her closest companions. Then her mother tried to bend the spirits to dark ends, and Mori was forced to confront her in a magical battle that left her crippled--and her twin sister dead.
Fleeing to her father whom she barely knew, Mori was sent to boarding school in England-a place all but devoid of true magic. There, outcast and alone, she tempted fate by doing magic herself, in an attempt to find a circle of like-minded friends. But her magic also drew the attention of her mother, bringing about a reckoning that could no longer be put off...
Combining elements of autobiography with flights of imagination in the manner of novels like Jonathan Lethem's The Fortress of Solitude, this is potentially a breakout book for an author whose genius has already been hailed by peers like Kelly Link, Sarah Weinman, and Ursula K. Le Guin.
