Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the first draft of the synopsis for Reflection: Harbinger of the Phoenix (especially Jake and Mike!). After a great deal of writing and re-writing, the blurb is now ready to go for the release on Tuesday.
Here it is:
The masquerade is over and the masks have been removed. But not everyone’s true face has been revealed…
King Casimer of Marise has assassinated the Royal Family of Chiyo and usurped the throne. What he doesn’t know is that the Heiress, Nerissa, is still alive and has joined the Ohanzee, a group of guardians who have secretly protected the country for generations. Disguising herself as a young man named Caeneus, Nerissa seeks a way to depose Casimer and restore Chiyo’s independence. An uncanny stroke of luck leads her to the mysterious seer Shae, who has discovered a fragment of an ancient prophecy warning of events that will bring about the end of civilization. And Casimer has already set some of those events into motion.
With the future of not only Chiyo, but all of Renatus at stake, Nerissa and her six Ohanzee companions set out on a journey to find the remaining fragments, where surprising new allies and unexpected enemies lie in wait.
