ABOUT THE BOOK:
Mixing Roman history with epic fantasy, FROM UNSEEN FIRE imagines a Rome that was built on a foundation of elemental magic, where mages and statesmen fight to gain control over the city of Aven. One such mage, Latona, must re-discover her incredible powers of Fire and Spirit–which she suppressed for years at the Dictator’s court–in order to protect her family and the city she loves.
Set in an alternate Rome where elemental magic shapes the rule of the land, FROM UNSEEN FIRE weaves history and fantasy into a thrilling plot about a republic on the verge of collapse. Brimming with magic and adventure, Latona, an elemental mage, must unleash her magical potential to save the city she loves. As senators, generals and fellow mages vie for the power over the city of Aven, Lavona’s burgeoning relationship with a rising politician may jeopardize the very future they seek to build in Aven.
