The Magi by Kevin M Turner | Blurb, Excerpt | Featured Author

Thirteen-year-old Elijah Hawk has never heard of the Magi. He doesn't know about the secret power they have. He has never been to Savenridge, the Magi city hidden deep inside the northern forests. Most of all, Elijah is unaware of the dangers hunting him, in search for something he has. After one terrifying night, however, all of that changes!

On a quest to solve the murder of his parents, Elijah stumbles upon the land of the Magi. Learning their secrets and training with their power is the least of his problems. In order to find out why his parents were killed, Elijah learns that he must confront the dangers that are hunting him. What's more terrifying is learning that stumbling upon this new world of the Magi may not have been an accident after all.

PROLOGUE

“You wished to speak with me, sir?”
“Have a seat, Roland. Drink?”
Roland sat down and cautiously gripped the crystal goblet placed before him. His master
never offered a drink unless there was business to attend to, and from the look in his eye,
tonight’s business was urgent.
“Thank you,” Roland said, wiping his mouth on his silver and black sleeve before the
sweet liquid dribbled down his chin. The drink was an appetizer. A symbolic gesture offered
just before blood was to be spilled. He waited patiently for direction.
“We found them.”
“Sir?”
“Ten years we’ve searched, and we’ve found them.”
“Are you sure?” Roland instantly knew the importance of his job. This was no menial
task. He was about to be given the honor of his life!
“Certain. And it’s important that you leave tonight. There must be no chance of word
spreading.”
“What are my orders?”
“I think you know, Roland.”
“You want me to kill them.”
“Yes.”
“All of them?”
“All of them.”
Roland took another sip from his goblet and nervously looked around. “Even the child?”
he whispered.
His master leaned in so close that the smell of his foul breath permeated through
Roland’s lungs.
“Especially the child.”
