Shining in Darkness

Authored by Bets Davies
Cover design or artwork by Stuart Downing

The War always comes. The varied magic, human sized sprites must battle against the soulless humans in a war waged by Gods in which the end is always a bloody draw. The Prophecy dictates the War always comes.

Quiet, bookish Firelight, white burning fire sprite, lives the limited life her adopted mother allows until the day humans destroy the city. Firelight's world ends, but when the survivors discover the heart of their culture, her new life began.

Sarcastic, rebellious Smoke's true name is No One-meaning he has no magic and no soul. To counteract others' image of him, he allows himself no emotions that could lead to pity. On a pilgrimage with an eclectic group of friends, he is charged to help Firelight realize she is their Goddess incarnate.

Duty turns to a relationship that frees them both. Now if only they and their friends can free their world.
