There are certain events that occur in life that are so revelatory and make such an indelible impression on our minds that they cause us to re-order our tiny little section of the universe. Most are too private to share, but one that is quite relevant relates to the author’s discovery of Middle Earth courtesy of a mother who wanted her son to develop her love of reading.

Finius Murk and the House of Cards
Every summer the Magi recruit from the Sleeping World the down-trodden, the dispossessed and the unloved to Diluvium to be taken in as one of their own. To have their innate magic abilities awakened. To be taught how to properly wield magic.
A seemingly unremarkable boy arrives on the wings of a Mother Storm.
His name is Finius Murk and the fate of all Magi is in his hands.
