Summerbird Rises

· Debi Ennis Binder

About this ebook

Summerbird Asii is an inept young seer, who has spent her life hiding her fractured magic from everyone around her. In a land where laws strictly prohibit magic, she hands out dull, common-sense and useless futures—and she remains safe enough from jail or even execution. Just when she agrees to marry and settle even further into her mundane life, she receives a visitor who definitely doesn’t belong in her cottage. A tiny griffin with impertinent questions. Is this--a tiny cottage and deceiving old women--all that she really wants out of life? He needs a wee favor and offers a trade. Summerbird has to wheedle answers from the evasive creature and what she hears doesn't make her feel anything but incredulous. He needs her help rescuing several highborn Fey whose magic has been compromised by an evil mage. Oh, and who might not want anyone interfering with his plans. But the griffin assures her that she will have plenty of assistants, once she rescues them! She hesitates, until the griffin makes an irresistible offer--would she like to learn her magic?  Follow Summerbird as she finally finds herself in Emythor, the magical lands of her birth, as she struggles to learn who—and what—she really is. She has been lured her into a world created by an omnipotent entity who is in danger and has disappeared. Where beautiful inhabitants prove that beauty can be wicked or noble and it can be impossible to know which is which. Emythor is a land that survives by taking magic from its people. Are they willing to give the land the ultimate in magic—their very lives?

About the author

Debi is an old soul, who recognized long ago that there were many far-flung worlds of magic to escape to, where many fantastic characters and their tales were waiting to be discovered and articulated. She now captures those many far-reaching and remote magical worlds (which are a far more corporeal world than many people realize), making them accessible in ways that beguile and charm, frighten and enthrall, in short, enchant those of the mundane, non-magical world. Debi welcomes you to her world of witches and sorcerers, griffins, dragons, and many other Fey. And unfortunately, the evil kind that seek their wealth of magic. After years of traveling many lands—both otherworldly and commonplace—she settled in the Land of Enchantment with her life-companion and her cats, to pull together the mythos of all those many mystical domains.
