coming soon: a fire to kindle by daniel dydek
If you're looking for a new clean fantasy from a Christian perspective, allow me to introduce A Fire to Kindle by Daniel Dydek, author of The Triumvirs series! A Fire to Kindle is the first in the Spirit Wind series, which are supernatural thrillers set in a medieval-esque countryside, and is available for preorder now!
about the book
Cursed with left-handedness, Rae-Anna tries to find refuge and sanctification in the convent outside Holden. But before she can take vows as a Sister of the order, a chance encounter in the catacombs starts her on a course strange to the Sisters and terrifying to her. To set things back to rights, she'll need to figure out why the blue fire alights her cursed hand—and how she can be rid of it.
But the harder she tries, the more it seems it will not leave until she does what it requires—and neither she nor the Sisters know exactly what that is.
A Fire to Kindle is a YA Christian speculative novel for readers who love supernatural battles (think Frank Peretti) and medieval fantasy and can handle Pirates of the Caribbean type spookiness (yes, I'm talking about undead skeletons 😂)! Fans of MaryLu Tyndall's Protectors of the Spear series will love the Spirit Wind series too!
A Fire to Kindle releases June 6th, 2023 from Beorn Publishing, and you can preorder now for only $0.99 on Amazon Kindle! (The price will increase to $1.99 for launch week, then to the full price of $3.99 afterwards.)
