Wingheart: Luminous Rock is the first book in the Wingheart trilogy
winghearttrilogy.com

Magnus Wingheart never knew about the world of Arkane. He never knew about the past his older brother, Drake, had kept hidden from him, nor that his parents had died at the hands of an inhuman enemy in a city he had never known to exist. When that enemy resurfaces, sixteen-year-old Magnus, Drake, and their former guardian, Cecil Handel, become ensnared in a deadly hunt for an elusive object they know almost nothing about. Their only escape entails confronting their pursuer-the immortal madman Daimos Recett, the pivotal figure in a grand scheme that arches across the realms of existence and threatens all of Arkane.

Carved with an ever-deepening plot, "Wingheart: Luminous Rock" weaves magic, technology, and science in an enthralling tapestry that shatters the barrier between fantasy and reality.

From the Author:

In writing Wingheart: Luminous Rock, I set out to spin a story that did not just employ the themes commonly associated with the fantasy genre, but that affirmed their reality. Quite like the protagonist in the book, Magnus, I refused to accept that magical objects have special capabilities simply because they are magical, or that an alternate world exists without origin, purpose, or definitive location. Stubbornly seeking explanations for the things that are often taken for granted in fantasy and fiction, I strove to invent plausible scientific frameworks for everything from the conjuring of magic to how the spirits of the dead interact with--and sometimes cleverly manipulate--those in the mortal realm.

The story revolves around the world of Arkane, one of Earth's parallel dimensions--a concept not foreign to current scientific theory. With its society, culture, and technology built on a meticulously devised system of elemental magic, Arkane is a highly advanced world unlike any other. When it becomes the stage for a battle against a madman obsessed with the rebirth of a medieval empire, the result is a uniquely colorful juxtaposition of castle dungeons and clockwork revolvers.

Wingheart is a story that mixes the best of the fantasy genres--it is contemporary without being cliché; it is epic without being a trite tale of a medieval war between elves and trolls. Luminous Rock's heroes are as ordinary as can be, not favored by any prophecy or gifted with any special powers beyond courage, ingenuity, and determination.

In its entirety, the planned Wingheart trilogy is a chronicle spun across three novels that each interweave with, and build on, the next. It is the tale of a struggle against an indomitable enemy grown from the simplest seeds of human greed and fear, yet with roots that span millennia, reaching the dawn of Arkane civilization and the origins of magic.

Fantastical wishes,
Benjamin
