The Last Guardians 1: Guardian Seeking

(Image Pending)

With murders taking place in the Upper Circle of the Spiral City right under the Guards’ noses, emotions are running high. Especially for Mai, whose little sister was one of the victims. The murderer is using strange magic, unfamiliar to Upper Circle mages. But a hint from another Guard suggests the answer lies in the Lower Circle, the chaotic slums. When given the chance to track down her sister’s killer, Mai will have to set aside societal norms in order to protect her city. But how far will she go?

The Last Guardians 2: Guardian Proving

Set in the Spiral City, a city-state isolated by the presence of a magical Barrier that keeps the rest of the world out. The city is divided between the the slums of the Lower Circle, and the elite world of the Upper Circle, both by the differences on the social and economic levels and by the very real physical presence of the Wall. While magic is trained and a part of everyday life in the Upper Circle, it is chaos and danger in the Lower Circle where it is rarely taught. But like every city in the world, there is crime and those who serve the city in the name of justice and peace: the Guards.

Liv has been Mai’s partner for three years now, and is well on her way to being recognized as a full-member of the Guard. She’s been content following along after Mai, acting as back-up more than anything else. But with bad harvests and unrelenting heat raising tension in the city, they will need every Guard they can get, especially when fires begin to spread across the ninth district where Liv and Mai work. When one fire leaves Mai injured and unable to help, Liv is going to have to prove that she can do the work of a full-Guard two years early. Advice from her grandmother encourages her to find her own way…if only Liv knew what that was.

The Last Guardians 3: Guardians Ascending

Guardians Ascending

Set in the Spiral City, a city-state isolated by the presence of a magical Barrier that keeps the rest of the world out. The city is divided between the the slums of the Lower Circle, and the elite world of the Upper Circle, both by the differences on the social and economic levels and by the very real physical presence of the Wall. While magic is trained and a part of everyday life in the Upper Circle, it is chaos and danger in the Lower Circle where it is rarely taught. But everything is about to change.

The Lower Circle is tearing itself apart. Food is scarce in the second hard winter, and there are few stores to feed the poor. Rim, a thirteen year old girl, struggles to take care of not only herself, but her older sister Ava after the death of their grandmother, a victim of the harsh winter. Ava is incapable of taking care of herself, due to the natures of her Gifts robbing her of sight and mind, among other things.

But Ava also has the Sight, the ability to know what is going to happen before it does. And when she starts talking straight, she reveals that she thinks she can solve not only their problem, but the problem of the whole city. Rim has to get her addled sister up to the Upper Circle to the only two people they can trust–the Guards Mai and Liv. But Ava isn’t telling Rim everything…

The third and last installment in the short-story trilogy, Guardians Ascending brings together the threads from the previous two stories and opens a bright new future for the Spiral City, full of strangeness and yet giving it room to grow, provided it is nurtured along.
