Sky has grown up hearing stories of heroes, dragons and magic, but they have always seemed like something that belongs in the old books she tends rather than the reality she lives. But when the Seekers come to her village, looking for young men and women with magic, Sky is chosen, and her world will never be the same.

Sent to the High Court for training, made a noble of the realm overnight and with only her brother for support, Sky feels lost. She must learn to master a gift she hadn’t known she had, as well as navigate a royal court as dangerous as quicksand, where secrets mean the difference between life and death.

A dark secret awaits the new Mages, and time is running out…


Guardian is a Young Adult fantasy novel, which has been brewing in my head for around 15+ years. In time I hope that this will be the first part in a series.
