Book excerpt: Since the dark days after the Great War, Feyree have been forced to earn their wings through the magical Rites of Krisalys, difficult and dangerous trials intended to make young sprytes understand their duties as adults and help them find their callings in life. Danai, Pook and their fellow sprytes have nervously looked forward to the secretive rites, not knowing what will be required of them. At least they didn’t have to worry about being harmed during the rites… Until now. Forces are gathering in the shadows, and they will stop at nothing, even murder, to keep Danai from completing the rites. Denizens of Nonetre, the Fire Realm, have also appeared in Lampion, raising fears of war among even the dwarven Troich and the elven Ael. The sprytes will have to accomplish bizarre and impossible quests, and ice dragons, fire demons, and even their own revered Loremaster stand in their way. In spite of the obstacles, there is one thing the young Feyree know. They are going to get their wings—or die trying.

Book excerpt: Continuing in the best traditions of high fantasy, the contemporary saga of the F??yree Chronicles blossoms with this suspense-filled adventure. When the Firelord, Tvashtar Tiz??n, petitions the F??yree Council to form an alliance, many f??yree insist he is presenting them with a rare opportunity. Yet while Tiz??n's motives seem sincere, Dana?¡ and Joson are increasingly suspicious of their former friend - and so is the Lady of the Lake. Few heed their warnings, and when the dragon attacks, even the ael dismiss the threat of Tiz??n's fire daemiani. But the Tvashtar's fiery realm of Nonetre is withering, and Eshel, his scheming high councilor, believes the prophecy foretells far more than just a simple alliance...A riveting tale of magic, danger, plots, dreams, and ultimate betrayal that will engulf two realms, forcing f??yree, dwarves, and ael into a perilous struggle to discern truth from trouble as two ancient prophecies pit friends against each other in a battle of beliefs.What reviewers are saying..."A modern day masterpiece... Dark Fire is really, really good. The second in the Kris?ílys Chronicles of F??yree series, Dark Fire lives up to the tremendous standards that Newcorn set with her groundbreaking first book, Crossover. Newcorn has only gotten better, creating another modern day masterpiece with the same suspense and complexity as Tolkien's legendary Lord of the Rings. Intricate plot, unparalleled detail, and superb characterization are expertly woven into a riveting tale of danger and betrayal. Newcorn perfects her recipe with an infusion of action and humor, creating an enthralling book that is truly unique and difficult to put down. I can't begin to recommend Dark Fire enough." - Nick Pena, Editor, Chart Publishing"A fascinating journey... Dark Fire thrusts the reader right into the action, and it doesn't really stop, for even as you close the book, your mind keeps spurring the story on. I admit I couldn't put it down. Part adventure, part coming-of-age, part allegory, Dark Fire is an exciting read and a fascinating journey." - Mariam George, Faerie MagazinePraise for the Award-Winning Crossover, Scroll 1"I give a resounding "Wow!" for Crossover.

Crossover's gripping adventure weaves a fascinating saga in which f??yree struggle through increasingly dangerous Rites in a quest to earn their wings, even as shadows of a forgotten prophecy gather to change their realm.
