Prophecies are just nursery rhymes for gullible fools.
So thinks Kyali Corwynall, daughter of the Lord General, and the court’s only sword-wielding girl. The famous verse that names SwordSong, and Crown the kingdom’s saviors is ridiculous, but just vague enough that Kyali finds herself cast as Sword, her musician brother Devin as Song, and her best friend Taireasa as Crown -much to her dismay.
Bad rhyme or not, this particular prophecy unravels Kyali’s entire life: her father is murdered, her kingdom overrun, and she is forced to sacrifice herself to save her friends, an act that leaves her on the brink of death. She emerges haunted and filled with rage, with a new and inexplicable connection to Devin and Taireasa that binds them together, hearts and minds. Desperate to hide her sacrifice, Kyali withdraws — but shutting out the people she loves most might just get them killed.
To save them – and the kingdom – she will have to become Sword, the hand of prophecy…no matter the cost.

The Dominion 
Gayleen Froese
Winter 2014

The war ended, and the magic started. Your next-door neighbour grew fangs. The ice cream shop down the street sprouted a new dimension. Even the vegetables in your garden started to act a little… odd. People and places began to change, and now, the most dangerous places on Earth are the ones where magic is strongest. That definitely includes the city-state of the Dominion, where it’s legal for vampires to eat you, dragons have burned down city hall, and the local crime boss can kill with a glance.

Sounds like the perfect place for a vacation.

Adventure-travel writer Innis Stuart and photographer Karsten Roth are in the Dominion for one week to pick up tips for foolhardy tourists. They weren’t planning to lock horns with the Dominion’s strangest serial killer and uncover a grotesque conspiracy, but travel always includes some surprises…
