Fantasy / Young Adult / Travel

Magic isn't as good as beauty or wealth, but for Hala it's something to set her apart, even if her only ability is to summon animals—accidentally—at inconvenient times. Then one night she comes home to find a black-cloaked stranger holding her village under a terrible spell. Will she be able to finally use her magic when it really matters?The day the hill tiger attacks, young Hala realizes excitedly that she may have the gift. As time passes, however, she wonders what good it is: a power that manifests itself only in the ability to accidentally summon animals at inconvenient times. The local mage hasn't been able to teach her to control it, and she can't even reliably summon her own sheep. Then one day she returns home to find a black-cloaked stranger holding her village under a terrible spell. Alone, she must find a way to save her family, her friends, and the boy who has finally begun to notice her.You can enjoy this stand-alone short story by itself, or read it in conjunction with Far-Knowing, which takes place after the events in Chaos Rises.Get your copy today.
