When you’re hanging in the sky, one wrong step can get you killed - if you see what's coming at all.
Yesterday Mark was a struggling bicycle courier, his only worry that Angie’s father had been keeping some kind of secret over the years he’s known them. He never dreamed it was the magic to control gravity.
Now Mark and Angie scramble through the city, and he watches her mastering the power and proving she can keep one step ahead of their enemies. With street gangs out for revenge and hidden masterminds that will kill to add this magic to their own, he thinks the worst weakness they can have will be if he can’t learn to keep up with her.
The High Road is the first book of the Spellkeeper Flight urban fantasy series. The second book, Freefall, launches in February.
Great read. I agree inspiration comes from all around you, oftentimes when you least expect. I'm always looking around for opportunities to be inspired, waiting for a chance encounter or odd event to turn into a story. But the idea of actively seeking out inspiration is something I haven't thought to do. I will definitely start giving this a try and am looking forward to the wealth of new ideas.
