Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

To end a civil war, Lansera’s King Turyn relinquished a quarter of his kingdom to create Medua, exiling all who would honor greed over valor to this new realm on the other side of the mountains. The Meduans and Lanserim have maintained an uneasy truce for two generations, but their ways of life are as compatible as oil and water.

When Vesperi, a Meduan noblewoman, kills a Lanserim spy with a lick of her silver flame, she hopes the powerful display of magic will convince her father to name her as his heir. She doesn’t know the act will draw the eye of the tyrannical Guj, Medua’s leader, or that the spy was the brother of Serrafina Gavenstone, the fiancèe of Turyn’s grandson, Prince Janto. As Janto sets out for an annual competition on the mysterious island of Braven, Serra accepts an invitation to study with the religious Brotherhood, hoping for somewhere to grieve her brother’s murder in peace. What she finds instead is a horror that threatens both countries, devouring all living things and leaving husks of skin in its wake.

To defeat it, Janto and Serra must learn to work together with the only person who possesses the magic that can: the beautiful Vesperi, whom no one knows murdered Serra’s brother. An ultimate rejection plunges Vesperi forward toward their shared destiny, with the powerful Guj on her heels and the menacing beating of unseen wings all about.

Readers of all ages will enjoy Wings Unseen, Rebecca Gomez Farrell’s first full-length novel. It is a fully-imagined epic fantasy with an unforgettable cast of characters.

EXCERPT:

Janto

“You’ve met Lady Gella?”

He was saved from answering when one of the Meditlan twins ran toward them, waving his arms. “There’s something in the trees throwing rocks. Come quick!” The man reversed sharply and ran back.

Janto and Hamsyn exchanged excited glances. It was probably a rhini, a fur-covered creature no larger than the twins’ knapsacks. They lived in the trees on the northern shores and attacked any humans that came close with twigs, rocks, or whatever their three-fingered hands could grasp. It could be a cantalere or a jurgen or even the silver stag, but those beasts did not throw things. A rhini was much more likely—it existed. And they were dangerous.

Janto clutched the dagger on his belt. They reached the tree line in time to watch Nap climb the nearest pine.

“Wait,” Janto called. “You don’t know if it’s safe!”

As if to answer him, a strange call like a raspy lute came from further in the woods, making his arm hair rise.

“That does not sound like a rhini.” Jerusho looked treeward with a nervous tremble.

“No, it doesn’t.” Either way, Janto would not let Nap head toward it alone. He jumped at the nearest tree and climbed. Something whizzed past his cheek as he ascended. The call came again, and he grabbed a branch from a neighboring tree, glad the ancient growths were at least as thick around as he was.

Up ahead, Nap shifted direction.

“Do you see anything?” Janto called.

“Yes.” He pointed further into the tree cover. “It blends in with the needles, but you can see it when it jumps.” He grabbed the next limb and yelled back, “Definitely not a rhini!”

Janto heard shuffling below him as the others began to climb. He considered waving them off—there was no sense in everyone putting themselves in danger—but decided against it. They did not know what lay ahead, but he and his companions weren’t afraid. Blood pulsed through him in a heady rush, and he barely felt his weight as he moved from tree to tree, following Nap’s lead. The calls continued intermittently, and the group soon worked their way far enough into the woods that the shimmer of black sand and the rough waves that had brought them here disappeared.
