About the Book

Her powers could doom her world.

Possessing all seven Gifts of magic, Crystu is destined to be one of the leaders of her people, the Guardians of the planet of Reyth.

She’s twenty-one, powerful, and her people’s ancient enemy makes an astounding proposal –
The Shadowbringer, a survivor of the war three millennia ago, offers godhood if she will mother a new race of magic users for him. Their children will be strong enough to free him from his long imprisonment, and, together, they will conquer the world.

His followers, gifted with portions of his power, are prepared to destroy everyone and everything Crystu holds dear to persuade her to accept his offer.

The Guardians have been training for generations to prepare for the day when the Shadowbringer begins a new War of Magic and that day has arrived.

But where will he strike first?

About the Author
Joan Lightning

I'm a British fifty-something Christian, archaeologist, martial arts practitioner (Kung fu and Taiji), long-distance runner (2 marathons and 6 half-marathons so far. 2 more halfs planned for 2018), and amateur photographer. I also knit, crochet, naalbind, and spin.

I was introduced to science fiction and fantasy at a very young age by my best friend's dad, who had boxes and boxes of science fiction books dating to the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
In those boxes I met Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Anne McCaffrey, Zenna Henderson, and many more, and I learned to love the smell of a printed volume.

I started telling short stories to my nephews when they were children and one day joined an online writing group where I accepted a challenge to write a short story about a young sorceress from a land of sorcerers. The Guardians of Reyth serial grew out of that story. Four and a half years later I finished the first draft which is c1,225,000 words long.
Since then I've been editing it, chopping it into smaller pieces, and writing a few new stories in the same world.
Watch this space because there is still a lot of the story to come.
