Weave the Lightning
Book One of the Storm Guard Cycle
Coming Spring 2020 from Solaris Books


In a 1910s, Russian-inspired fascist state, the storms that enable new magical imbuements are returning decades early.  The State controls all mages, except…

Celka Prochazka — a  young woman resistance fighter and circus high-wire walker, who is hiding a treasonous secret.

Gerrit Kladivo — a young man trained as a mage by the State, who refuses to let the secret police dictate his every imbuement.

Both must learn to control their magic and untangle truth from propaganda to save their country from its brutal regime.

Available for pre-order on Amazon.

For fans of Brent Weeks’ Lightbringer series and Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows, this stunning fantasy debut combines rich, Russian-inspired worldbuilding, a complex magic system, and passionate characters in a multilayered tale of personal discovery and political awakening.
