What if magic came back during a time a corrupt government was running the country to the ground?
I wanted to write a book about magic and magicians without leaving this world, this England, this London, a place I’ve lived since I was born. That’s why I decided to start with the real world and thought about what would happen if some people started to have children born with magical powers. Way things are now; a crisis in child poverty, care of the elderly, mental health for young and old, housing crisis. underfunded health service; the government would quickly step in to take control and parents would react by doing all they could to protect their children.
Okay, so far so good; we have magic back, a corrupt, heartless government and magicians going underground to stay free and alive. To spice things up a bit more, I made it so girl magicians were born with their powers while boys who had it in them, saw their powers mature when they were 18-19. Oh, and the incident that bought magic back also dragged in some pretty nasty monsters.
It’s an indie published book. It’s a great story, pretty well written so fun to read. There’s no massive marketing campaign, so you won’t see adverts for it in bookstores, magazines, on the sides of busses or on billboards.
Grab it on Amazon in whichever country you are in. Here are some links:
