Series Description:

The Spellsmiths is a Science Fantasy series where humanity is sent down a darker path by another World War, which ravages the land. A brilliant scientist, Alastor Keenum, creates a biogenic plague called the Equalizer to end the war before the planet becomes uninhabitable, dramatically reducing the population and granting humanity magical powers.

The story itself is set on Earth 700 years in the future where humanity never conquered the stars. Just when we're pulling our act together, an alien race of intergalactic gardeners called the Void passes judgement over humanity and sentences the entire Earth to death.

Our young heroes struggle to protect their world from threats, both without and within, while trying to find themselves.

Book #1 - Derailed


Derailed (The Spellsmiths Series Book 1)

Description:

Eighteen-year-old Ember Wallace is a magical misfit. Her power has a mind of its own and a nasty habit of killing anyone it perceives as a threat. She's resorted to sleeping in the trees in order to get some peace from her neglectful paranoid father. Scorned by the town, Ember's dreams of acceptance has never seemed further out of reach.

If that wasn't enough, their caste system doesn't tolerate deviants. If Ember doesn't prove herself she'll be killed, or worse, exiled to the wastelands. Desperate, Ember studies day and night, refusing to surrender to despair. She never thought she would be coveted by two rival castes poised for war. Now, Ember's worst tormentors want her dead for surpassing them.

Ember is about to learn that in a world which prizes talent above all else, recognition isn't only dangerous. It can get you killed.

Don't wait another minute. Try out the beginning of Derailed today.

Book #2 - Fractured


Fractured (The Spellsmiths Series Book 2)

More than anything, King Rayner wishes he could start over. But in the Kingdom of Concordia, you should be extremely careful what you wish for.

The last thing Rayner remembered, he was seventeen-years-old and running from the responsibility of being Concordia's next king. Now he's woken up in a world he doesn't recognize, 108 years into the future where he had been ruling as Concordia's king. And yet to all appearances, he is seventeen still - or again.

The only problem with being seventeen again? Any memory of his reign has been completely wiped from his mind.

Enter Jasmine, a seventeen-year-old prodigy who resents Rayner for a betrayal he can't even remember. A palace coup, the capital in chaos and a full-blown caste war make his amnesiac condition a deadly game. The pair of fugitives must work together if they hope to confront the greatest threat of all before everything they love is destroyed.

Fractured is the riveting sequel to Derailed, continuing the Spellsmiths series.

I've started getting reviews. 8) Here's my first one:

An awe-inspiring story
By Shane
Format: Kindle Edition


So it finally happened, in this story a large amount of the human population had been wiped out by constant war and to finish it off a scientist introduced a DNA altering substance that changed people and gave them magical powers.

That's not exactly where the story begins; it begins in a park with a young woman brimming with wild magic who went by the name of Ember who meets up with a friend in a park. From then onward the story flows through the history and the future of the world. Filled with magic and super descriptive scenes I am amazed at the detail and care that went into this story.

From the moment I picked it up I felt a level of interest burring inside my soul to keep reading and in some regards it reminds me of the many types of Anime I watch.

The potential love between the major character and the fate that's install for her is another aspect that keeps the reader hooked also the prospect of the caste groups going to war over one simple person who got 100% in their exams baffles the mind. Although I do find the beginning a little overwhelming with information, I urge the reader to continue, it suddenly explodes like a flower blooming in the sunlight after the first ten pages.

As expected her movements are watched by the people in charge and with her ability to create doubles of herself, this story just keeps adding more dept and layers to keep set you up for a mind-blowing adventure.

The author in this story has a great talent and very in-depth tale that is defiantly worth a paperback copy to read, forget the kindle, this is one for the books. I highly recommend this.
