Once upon a time, the Fae races gathered abducted humans from different cultures and times on Earth and deposited them in another world, teaching them magic and leaving them to start a new civilization. Seven hundred years later, several of those colonies have become industrial societies in which many people doubt the stories of their ancestors.

Set in this world, Dark Apprentice is a projected series telling the story of Hunter, the first female apprentice to study under famous dark magician Franklin. Incredibly smart, but perhaps overly curious and a little impulsive, Hunter must adjust to her life as an apprentice and a young woman living alone in a city–while being alternately teased with allusions to Franklin’s closely guarded secrets and bombarded with unexpected revelations about the nature of her world and the people in it.

The first volume, Blood and Bone, Wood and Brass, is finished and actively looking for its publishing forever-home.
