Excerpt:

“I’m not sure. It’s a spell of some sort, but it’s a powerful one. Magic script is rarely used now and never like this. The varied colors mean that the spell is a conditional one. The writing of this today would bring me to your doorstep.”

“What do you mean?”

“The three colors. A conditional spell has three outcomes – based on the mage who uses it. The intent of the mage changes the results, and if the mage’s intent is to harm…”

“Intent is all,” I whisper.

“Yes. The foundation of magic, but intent matters little in an age when magic serves no role. In a world when it was powerful, however, this could be a weapon or a blessing. All depending on the mage. It doesn’t matter, though, because if we want to read this…”

“We need the mage,” I finish. “Sure. That will be easy.” Finding a mage in Anara during peace time was a challenge, at least one who would admit to crafting this. Secrecy is forbidden in mages; it was one of the agreements when magic became a specialized art. Finding a veiled mage after entire kingdoms, along with all of their mages, have been butchered is an impossibility.

“I think we must speak with Alusia,” Seamus suggests. “And then we need to take a journey to Livonia.”

“Livonia is in ruins. It was absorbed by Yarvania, remember?”

Seamus smiles. “Ruins are the best place to start. Where better to hide a secret than under rubble everyone forgot?”

Review5 StarsI really liked Primordial Dust. In the first part of the book I did get a little confused because the story kept going back and forth between then and now, but I think this is so that you can kind of get the back story. If you keep what you read in the back of your mind the story starts to make a lot more sense when you get to part two and the story follows a sequence.

I really liked how in the beginning of the book Alondra can’t even fathom being with Seamus but as the book goes on and their lives keep changing because of the circumstances of what is happening to them, she really relies on him. I think in all of the parts my favorite is the end. It was a really good ending.

I would definitely recommended this book. It is a great read.

authorSarah Daltry writes about the regular people who populate our lives. She’s written works in various genres – romance, erotica, fantasy, horror. Genre isn’t as important as telling a story about people and how their lives unfold. Sarah tends to focus on YA/NA characters but she’s been known to shake it up. Most of her stories are about relationships – romantic, familial, friendly – because love and empathy are the foundation of life. It doesn’t matter if the story is set in contemporary NY, historical Britain, or a fantasy world in the future – human beings are most interesting in the ways they interact with others. This is the principle behind all of Sarah’s stories.

Sarah has spent most of her life in school, from her BA and MA in English and writing to teaching both at the high school and college level. She also loves studying art history and really anything because learning is fun.

When Sarah isn’t writing, she tends to waste a lot of time checking the internet for pictures of cats, shooting virtual zombies, and simply staring out the window.

She has written several books, most notably Bitter Fruits, an urban fantasy in the Eden’s Fall series, Backward Compatible: A Geek Love Story, and the six book New Adult Flowering series, including Forget Me Not, Lily of the Valley, Blue Rose, Star of Bethlehem, Orange Blossom, and Ambrosia.
