Apprentice Storm Mage

(Planned for Young Adult, short novella)

 

Young mage’s apprentice Thomena is a gifted prodigy with the elements of wind and water. She yearns to learn the secrets of fire. In order to test her responsibility, her guild mentor orders her to assist the fire-fighting praetorians of Orlaun. The praetorian vigiles have been unusually busy dealing with fires this season. Thomena is told to stay back from the fires, and just use her spells to assist and protect those who must get close to the danger. The stakes become personal when she finds evidence that another mage may be behind the fires, but will her resolve persevere when tested by tragedy?
