Break the enchantments. Find the truth. Ignite the revolution.

A century ago, the Enchanters defeated the evil Lord of the Underworld, but not before he’d unleashed his monsters and ravaged the earth. The Enchanters built the Triumvirate out of what remained of the United States, demanding absolute obedience in exchange for protection from the lingering supernatural beasts.

Sixteen-year-old Flynn Nightsider, doomed to second-class life for being born without magic, knows the history as well as anyone. Fed up with the Triumvirate’s lies and secrecy, he longs for change. And when he stumbles across a clue that hints at something more – secrets in the dark, the undead, and buried histories – he takes matters into his own hands.

Before long, Flynn finds himself hunted not only by the government, but also by nightmarish monsters and a mysterious man with supernatural powers … all seeking him for reasons he cannot understand. Rescued by underground rebels, he’s soon swept up in their vision of a better world, guided by a girl as ferocious as the monsters she fights. But as the nation teeters on the brink of revolution, Flynn realises three things.

The rebellion is not what it seems.

Flynn himself might be more than he seems.

And the fate of the world now rests in his hands.


The Firedragon

The Firedragon

The Firedragon was written by Mary Fan and first published in 2014. It is a short science-fiction novella which acts as a prequel to the Flynn Nightsider series, the first novel of which is due for release later this year under the title of Flynn Nightsider and the Edge of Evil. All proceeds earned from the sale of The Firedragon are being donated to San Diego Department of Animal Services Spirit Fund and so purchasing a copy for a mere 78p can help provide veterinary care for stray animals.

For a hundred years, the world has been home to monsters. Even though the Lord of the Underworld was defeated by brave warriors, his minions still run riot; destroying cities and eating humans alive. Fourteen year old Aurelia Sun (nicknamed the Firedragon) has trained to hunt them for her entire life but is still not taken seriously by her peers. She is a Norm – an ordinary human – in a world when the magically endowed Enchanters rule the roost.

When the International Challenge – a worldwide monster-fighting contest – is announced, Aurelia realises that this is her chance to get noticed. The winner will be automatically promoted to the Defender Class – the elite group of Norms who are charged with hunting down monsters. On top of this, she sees an opportunity to change the status quo. If a Norm beats the Enchanter contestants and wins the contest, everyone will see that her race is not inferior after all.

However, after Aurelia passes the preliminaries, she learns that not everything is as it seems. The contest is more brutal than she could have ever imagined and she slowly begins to realise that the Triumvirate – the rulers of her world – have a sinister ulterior motive. Yet her discoveries come too late as she finds herself face to face with a terrible foe – a powerful monster which no single hunter has ever defeated…
