SOURCE MAGE | THE AWAKENED WORLD SERIES, BOOK 1
I was five when the dragons first appeared … and the lights went out for good.
Now, eighteen years after the cataclysmic appearance of the four great dragons over Mount Fuji, humanity shares a shattered Earth with the Fey—fairies, elves, and other supernatural creatures. Trust is short, magic is common, and each day is a struggle for survival in the Awakened World of 2053.
I’m Angie Ritter, a former army mage who can’t cast spells anymore. I have some issues. I’m working on them.
Unfortunately, the army wasn’t as accommodating as I would have hoped and gave me the boot. Now, I survive day by day in Sanwa City, a walled settlement in southern California, doing menial labor and pretty much hiding from the world. Without my magic, I can’t help myself, let alone anyone else, but when my old army buddy Erin—an elite werewolf shock trooper—comes to me for help, I can’t say no. Now, I just need to pull myself together—and fast. Because someone’s hunting werewolves, and Erin is their new prey.
And if I get in their way, they’re going to carve me up too.
Thing is, I’m done with hiding.
The short bio is that William Stacey is a combat nerd who lives to tell stories.
The slightly longer version is that he was born on Vancouver Island, British Columbia in 1964, spent his early years in Montreal (although his French is really rather sad), and then moved back west to Vancouver, where for some inexplicable reason he thought that the best way to win at life was to drop out of high school and join the army. (It really wasn’t ‘the best way to win at life,’ but try telling that to a 17-year-old who knows everything.)
Off to the army William went. After basic training in Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, and communications training in Kingston, Ontario, the army decided that a little bit of alone time would be best, and posted him to the isolated little village of Masset on the Queen Charlotte Islands (now, Haida Qwai). The Queen Charlotte islands were beautiful, but for some reason William wanted to live somewhere else (maybe somewhere where there were people… okay, single women), and two years later was posted to Bermuda (I know, experiences vary in the army).
