This story tells the remarkable adventures of a special boy with incredible powers who grows up marked for death during a brutal global war started by Genghis Khan in the Dark Ages where non-magical wands project swords, shoot fireballs, and enable flight. The non-stop action depicts frequent aerial duels and epic air battles involving thousands of fliers fighting the greatest empire in human history, led by an unlikely hero who falls in love with a wonderful girl he cannot live without. The book was completely re-written in 2013 to incorporate reader feedback. Mature content make it unsuitable for little kids looking for the next Harry Potter.
DEDICATION: I dedicate this novel to my beautiful wife and our two wonderful sons, Brian and Lucas.

A wand bristling with power in each hand, Lady Elizabeth finished putting her body armor, battle helmet, and game face on. A birthday present from her father, her new wands blew away anything she had ever used, and must have cost a bloody fortune. Certainly she never would have attempted her plans for the day without them. Savoring the raw energy flowing up her arms and down her spine, she forced herself to put aside all doubt, regret, and mercy. She could not afford mercy. Not today.
