With the Matriarch dead and Eilar’s protective barriers devastated, Kira’s homeland is at risk. Amid the resulting aftermath of fear and insecurity, mounting tensions cause a rift in the Eilaran leadership.

Against the ruling council’s will, Kira embarks upon a hazardous quest to discover the workings of her mad half-brother Kavyn’s shattered focus stone.

About the author

SHARON SKINNER grew up in a small town in northern

California where she spent her time reading books, making

up plays and choreographing her own musicals (when she

wasn’t busy climbing trees and playing baseball.) She’s

been writing stories since the fourth grade, filling page after

page with fantastical creatures, aliens, monsters and, of

course, heroes.

She spent four years in the Navy, where she served

aboard the first US ship to carry women to sea. She has

also repaired laboratory and hospital equipment, worked

as a warehouse production manager, telephone sales

representative, professional trainer, visual information

systems coordinator, grants professional and consultant.

Somewhere along the way, she managed to obtain a B.A.

in English and a Masters in Creative Writing from PRescott

Collge.Her Young Adult and Middle-Grade novels tend to

explore complex relationships, particularly those between

mothers and daughters.

Still a voracious and eclectic reader, Sharon also loves

drawing, arts and crafts, sewing, and costume-making

(especially steampunk). Her guiltiest pleasure is online

gaming, and her biggest weakness is home-made, doubledark

chocolate fudge. She lives in Arizona with her husband

and three annoying but lovable cats.

You can find her online at
