Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Bryar Rose has a problem. She’s descended from one of the three magical races—shifters, fairies, or witches. That makes her one of the Magicorum, and Magicorum always follow a fairy tale life template. In Bryar’s case, that template should be Sleeping Beauty.

“Should” being the key word.

Trouble is, Bryar is nowhere near the sleeping beauty life template. Not even close. She doesn’t like birds or woodland creatures. She can’t sing. And she certainly can’t stand Prince Philpot, the so-called “His Highness of Hedge Funds” that her aunties want her to marry. Even worse, Bryar’s having recurring dreams of a bad boy hottie and is obsessed with finding papyri from ancient Egypt. What’s up with that?

All Bryar wants is to attend a regular high school with normal humans and forget all about shifters, fairies, witches, and the curse that Colonel Mallory the Magnificent placed on her. And she might be able to do just that–if only she can just keep her head down until her eighteenth birthday when the spell that’s ruined her life goes buh-bye.

But that plan gets turned upside down when Bryar Rose meets Knox, the bad boy who’s literally from her dreams. Knox is a powerful werewolf, and his presence in her life changes everything, and not just because he makes her knees turn into Jell-O. If Bryar can’t figure out who—or what—she really is, it might cost both her and Knox their lives… as well as jeopardize the very nature of magic itself.

Honor does not bend. A will of iron does not break. Victory lies within the ashes.

The Vapros, the Taurlum, and the Celerius: three dynasties bound by an ancient promise, and given superhuman abilities to protect the city of Altryon from the dangerous world beyond its walls. The Vapros have the ability to teleport and turn their enemies to ash, the Celerius have super speed and the ability to heal from any wound, the Taurlum have skin like steel and godlike strength. Centuries of petty infighting have turned the families against each other, resulting in a secret war. A powerful emperor now rules over all, as the families have weakened by massive casualties.

Sixteen-year-old Neil Vapros desperately wants to become an assassin, to please his hyper critical father. After failing his first mission, Neil learns that a sinister new force has awakened. This mysterious new power threatens to shatter the established order and threaten the lives of everyone in Altryon – regardless of their family name or allegiance.

Interview with Kyle
The Book Junkie Reads YA on May 15

How would you describe your style of writing to someone that has never read your work?
With my writing I like to follow Stephen King’s advice of “leave out the boring bits.” My goal is to always put the reader right into the middle of the action. Every scene should be worthwhile and should follow the fast paced rhythm of the novel as a whole. If something isn’t needed or slows down the piece as a whole then it needs to be reworked or cut. We should always be learning something new or moving forward with the story.

What are some of your writing/publishing goals for this year?
This year I plan to finish and release the Ashes, release the Audiobook for the Flames, complete editing on a solo YA project and finish up an adult mystery book. I also plan to never sleep again, apparently.

Do you feel that writing is an ingrained process or just something that flows naturally for you?
Writing is a learned thing. No one is an incredible writer starting out and even good writers often have less than perfect first drafts. Writing is about trial and error and editing.

If you could spend one-week with 5 fictional character, who would they be?
I’d love to spend some time with Sherlock Holmes, Tony Stark, Beatrice from Much Ado, Dr. Gregory House, and Rocket Raccoon just to watch them argue for a bit and take notes.

Where would you spend one full year, if you could go ANYwhere? What would you do with this time?
If I had a full year I’d probably try to travel to as many different countries as possible and experience as many different cultures as I could. Good writing comes from life experience and travel is an amazing way to achieve that.

Can you share your next creative project(s)? If yes, can you give a few details?
Unfortunately most of my creative projects are under wraps, but The Flames is out now and the audiobook should be following this year!  In addition the summation of the Feud Trilogy, the Ashes, will hopefully be released early next year!

Jon Eric Preston received his Theatre degree from Florida State University after returning from the London program. He earned top honors narrating in the Dramatic Interpretation category on the Speech and Debate team, and performed professionally in Children’s Theatre companies and did National Tours of A Christmas Carol, Twelfth Night, and Othello.

As a SAG BookPAL and a father reading to his two boys for more than 12 years, moving into the booth to record audiobooks was a natural and joy filled progression.
He is thrilled to be narrating and giving voice to the characters for Kyle Prue’s Feud Trilogy.He is thrilled to be narrating and giving voice to the characters for Kyle Prue’s Feud Trilogy.
