The Mistport Guardians
"The Stolen Child"
A child, suspended mid-air, falls from the edge of a ship and without warning is chased by vicious arrows slung with wild abandon to capture her once more. Without regard for their own personal safety, this sight spurs on the action of strangers– each diametrically divergent as they could be. This choice to save a lost little girl, though, is one that binds them together as they fall in fate for a journey none of them were prepared for, and one that forever changes not only their own lives, but that of an entire city, rebellion, and perhaps beyond.
In “Mistport Guardians: The Stolen Child”, the idea of what makes a fantasy novel is turned on its head not to transport the reader to a far off land where superhuman warriors always make the right choices and win the day. Instead, this story is about a rag-tag ensemble of accidental-adventurers who are no more important than anybody else except that when they witness injustice, rather than turning a blind eye to the unfortunate, they act. From saving a magical child from her captors, joining rebel forces underground, and discovering their own strengths in magic and in battle, this story takes readers into a world like no other.
This epic fantasy is driven by the interactions and mishaps of a very distinct ensemble as they navigate a reality in which magic is used as a means to subdue the population and tensions between the realms of the fey and the layfolk are at an all-time high.
