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.
“The Mistport Guardians: The Stolen Child" is a Multi-POV epic fantasy that is the first installation of a tetralogy. With the magical, in-depth world-building of Will Wight's "Cradle" Series and the adventurous heart of Critical Role's "Vox Machina", "The Mistport Guardians" is a story of social turmoil, relatable mishaps, and valor found in the most unlikely of places.
When Nikia Emberblade, a fiery swordswoman, escapes her home island in search of a way to eradicate the slave trade in the bustling city of Mistport, she falls into fate with a diverse company of characters: Caz Darcy–the Lord of the People; Pepe–a wily rogue; Lafayette Feygrass–a scrappy artificer; and eventually, Trisna–a naive apostate. Together they rescue a trafficked girl at a trading port and get involved with an underground rebellion that rages against the tyrannical, racist, classist, and anti-magic Empire that holds the city hostage.
