Born to Magic: Tales of Nevaeh: Volume I

Welcome to Nevaeh—where magic has replaced technology.

Long ago, the violence and radiation of terrorist wars killed America. Descendants of the survivors now dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.

Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, is barely eighteen, yet her psychic ability is strong. She is called to The Island and learns that the fate of her world is in her hands. She must undertake a perilous journey to save Nevaeh from malicious destruction. But she will not travel alone.

Mikaal, the son of the High King of Nevaeh, has just as much at stake as Areenna. The quest takes them through haunted wastelands filled with mutants while a vile and evil force will do everything in its power to stop them—for it wants Nevaeh as its own.

*Born To Magic, Tales of Nevaeh *(Vol.1) by David Wind

A dystopic fantasy with a feminist twist! In the new world that develops long after the old one was destroyed, women have the upper hand. They wield the magic while the men wield swords. But a strong, dark power is rising from the old world, determined to destroy the cooperation and ties that the kingdoms have painstakingly developed for mutual protection. It falls to two young people to ward off the threat--Areenna, a woman-child with great potential powers, and the young prince Mikaal, who has a terrible secret of his own.

David Wind has penned a classic fantasy quest and a fabulous first installment in what promises to be an epic series.

*Born To Magic, Tales of Nevaeh *(Vol.1) by David Wind
  The story takes place in Nevaeh, America is gone by war many, many years before. The women there have super strength and psychic abilities. One woman Areenna, the daughter of King Freemorn is the future Queen.
    She learns that the fate of the world is in danger and it is up to her to save it. Along with Mikaal, the son of Nevaeh's King they set off to fight to save humanity. They face many dangers along the way and secrets are revealed. Will Areenna be saved from the darkness? Will their quest be a success?
    A very original story, very detailed and well written. Each character has their own qualities, some are likable while others are not. There is suspense, adventure and magic. All the qualities of a great fantasy.

From the Author

This book is the first in a series I started because of how the world seems to be evolving. I decided to use a combo of sci-fi & fantasy to show a possible future that grew from today's world-wide turmoil caused by terrorism and fundamentalist thinking, and to present it in an epic sword and sorcery tableau.  There have been many science fiction and fantasy writers over the past century and a half who have shown us a myriad of possibilities for our future.
     Born To Magic: Tales Of Nevaeh, Volume I is one of those possibilities.  
     This novel and series was written for readers from (ya) sixteen to seniors.  It is for anyone who wonders what the future holds.

A Better Place to Be

A story about life, though perhaps not the one you would choose to live.
inspired by the characters from the Harry Chapin song of the same name, 'A Better Place To Be’ is a story of love, loss, and the ability to overcome the worst that life can throw at someone and come out the other side.
