An Unusual Skill
All his life, Nate has dreamed of using his wind magic as a sailor in the imperial navy. By law, all Skilled must serve the Solkyrian Empire with their magic, and it’s a fate that Nate willingly embraces. Unfortunately, while Nate’s Skill makes him highly sensitive to the element, it’s not strong enough for him to control the wind, and his dreams of serving in the navy unravel. Disgraced, Nate is forced to resign himself to an unwanted fate, but that changes when he meets pirate captain Iris Arani.
A Legendary Treasure
After learning of Nate’s Skill, Captain Arani invites him to join her crew and carve out a new life free from the empire. But Arani wants Nate’s help finding something that only his magic can track down. Something so steeped in legend, Arani will need to risk the trust of her crew and her captainship to get it.
An Epic Adventure
As part of Arani’s crew, Nate will learn to use his Skill in ways he never thought possible. He hopes that will be enough to secure him the life he’s always dreamed of, if he can survive long enough to return home. But danger is everywhere on the high seas, even for a ship full of pirates, and Nate must learn to harness his true magic before Arani steers her ship and her crew into the heart of it all.

Bring Black Sleeve to Life!
The First Book of a New Flintlock Fantasy Series
Black Sleeve is a gun-slinging magical adventure novel set in Balor – where magic is outlawed, the Guardians are corrupt, and an insidious evil resides under a mask of compassion.
Follow Gammon’s journey – once an elite Hunter and member of the Green Sleeves, Gammon has fallen into the shame and exile of being marked a Black Sleeve. Gammon finds himself in an unlikely alliance among the often treacherous lot of criminal and severed folk to embark on a quest to reclaim his life and love in defiance of the other Sleeves of Malar who have punished him.
Gammon comes face-to-face with a far greater threat than the Politicians or Philosophers of Balor could have imagined! All Balor is in danger, from the ingenuity of the Bathmore rifles to the sophistication of the Pantheon of Malar.
