Moon 514: Blaze and the White Griffon
Drew Briney, author
The inevitable is coming: technology must evolve alongside magic. Unfortunately for Blaze, no one promised it would be easy. Trained from boyhood to be protectorate of the only known community of survivors, Blaze's world turns upside down when he fails to save the Order from an unexpected and devastating attack. Then, as he discovers his mentor has turned executioner, finds himself accused of treason while traveling to Moon 514, and falls victim to Toka's secret gene splicing experiments, Blaze’s troubles seem boundless as space itself. His life is further thrown into confusion when he learns his legendary weaponry skills are useless against the psionic powers of a small alien whose name no one can pronounce – at least, not without two separately functioning vocal chords. And while Evelia, his unquenchable crush, becomes the alien’s unexpected apprentice, Blaze hearkens to the earth’s call to lead mankind’s last few survivors to the destiny she envisions for them: a technologically advanced civilization governed by magic.
