Bremerton author’s ‘Mystian Dawning’ is first book in fantasy series | Kitsap Week

BREMERTON — Bremerton author Amanda Ruehle’s “Mystian Dawning,” the first book in her Cyan series, was released this week by Tate Publishing (www.tatepublishing.com).

In the story, magic is outlawed in the kingdom of Cyan. Nearly all magic-users were driven out of the country decades ago under King Trent’s radical laws, sending the enchanters to the farthest reaches of the land as they awaited a more tolerant ruler. However, Trent doesn’t know that his own son, Tobias, descends from the ancient, Mystian bloodline or that Firestorm, the only magician in the country, has secretly taken the young prince under his wing.

When Tobias uses magic to save Firestorm’s daughter from a violent attack, he is ripped away from his life as a privileged prince and expectant father in a loveless marriage, and is thrown into the middle of a battle between magicians and Lahoflon, a power-hungry lord with his eye on Cyan’s crown. The fate of the country rests on Tobias’s shoulders.

The book is available at bookstores, from www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Ruehle lives in Bremerton with her husband and three sons.
