Burning BrightSorceress Islands #2
Magic only brings trouble.
When natural healer Marii sees fire in the sky, she knows trouble comes for her father, bridge guardian Mikolas. The bridge he guards leads to the island which welcomes mages, and someone no longer hides their magic.
Mikolas and Marii must work together to save the mage and the mage’s family, while keeping their own family from being exposed as traitors to the temple.
No matter what they do, someone will die.
The second story in the Sorceress Islands series.
Because this is a short story, I don't have an excerpt at the moment. (It wouldn't consist of much.)
Desperate times forces desperate measures, and a quick temper doesn't help the situation.
