Description

Having been raised a mundane street urchin, Carmine never imagined that in one day she would discover she has untapped magic potential on par with the heavy hitters. If only she knew how to control it... Enter Crimson Skye, an adventurer for hire who needs a mage and is willing to sign up the fledgling magic user so long as she comes along to participate with the monster fighting, pirate raiding, and all around dangerous lifestyle that the air-ship crew leads. The goal? Assemble a Dream Star - an item that will grant its creator a return prize of any magnitude. Such a prospect attracts more than just the captain of the Scarlet Skye, though. Several other sky pirate groups and even an archmage are all interested in completing the Dream Star, and no one is willing to take second place. Furthermore, Carmine's involvement and the subsequent unlocking of her magic COULD mean that she becomes a monster worse than anything the crew thought they might have to face. Is the promise of endless treasure worth it? Or is there more at stake than Crimson Skye's willing to let on?show more

About Aurora Cannon

Aurora Cannon is a children's cartoon addict, and a mother. Her favorite pastime is watching cartoons with her kids, anime with her friends, and Disney movies like Tron, Alice, and Maleficent with her family. She prefers to watch or read a clever plot with a touch of humor, and writes likewise. (Claiming it's for self-entertainment.) In her spare time, she dabbles in art and crafting. When her favorite Saturday morning cartoon was canceled, and turned into a comic book instead, that was the start of a world building storm that ran amuck through her entire childhood, lead to a delusional major in biology (where her favorite class was English, ironically), and finally wound up with her writing what she wanted to read. Her favorite medium is still video games, and she would love to one day write a 16 bit platform-er or RPG. Her favorite genre to read is fantasy, (obviously, ) but within that she'll read anything from mystery, to slice-of-life, to high adventure. Most of her favorite authors have books in the children's section of the bookstore, but she doesn't mind. Those books tend to adhere to a PG or PG-13 rating, even though they're just as well written as what's over in the sci-fi area, and Aurora applauds those writers for creating what was not available when she was smallshow more
