Powerless Mage Battles Psionically Gifted Dragons and Superstitious Steampunk Society

Unproven

#1 Best Seller in free YA SFF Steampunk novels 
#2 Best Seller in free YA SFF Action & Adventure

When Shadow, a powerless mage, chose exile to preserve family honor, he didn’t expect a mysterious call to defeat psionic, camouflaging dragons – nor did he expect them to offer him a glimpse into a life wielding a mage’s power.

Surprises mount when a steampunk army invades his homeland and Shadow is tasked with uncovering the secret behind magic’s evolution while leading a youth team infested with at least one traitor. Distracted by an unwelcome romance, losses mount as he stumbles through treachery, vampiric vines, ancient disembodied mages, and the legendary Mists of Ishmandool where few escape with their sanity.

By the time Shadow announces he’s found the solution, it may be too late. Even if it’s not, it risks the complete annihilation of his people and worse, it’s unproven.

Unproven has drawn comparisons to Ursula Le Guin (Harry Potter’s biggest influence), Elaine Cunningham (the queen of dark fantasy and Forgotten Realms), and Fydor Dostoevsky (psychological godfather of Crime and Punishment). With strong female characters, a dark M. Night Shyamalan twist, dragons on steroids, a Brandon Sanderson-esque tight plot, and prodigious world building, Unproven is destined to satiate readers who enjoy sword and sorcery, mythical creatures, ghosts, dark fantasy, psychological thrillers, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Forget the coffee. Unproven will keep you reading late into the night. Grab your copy and see why veteran producer Beth “Bea” Roose predicted it would be a hit

 

Norton, Tolkien, Won My Heart

Excellent read! Reminds me of Andre Norton, Tolkien and a couple more of the old writers who won my heart many many years ago. I think I might give it to my grandsons to enjoy.

Hopefully the first in a trilogy

Hopefully the first in a trilogy. Excellent … a collision between Ursula Le Guin and Fydor Dostoevsky. … wonderfully developed and complex world ala Le Guin … never drags. … hoping for more from this important new author.

Absolutely Enjoyed It

Technology and magic is quite a combination. Definitely not a safe one. I absolutely enjoyed the narrator, who made it realistic.
