Auralia's Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet (Chapter 1)

Auralia's Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet (Chapter 1)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,551 |Likes:
When thieves find an abandoned child lying in a monster’s footprint, they have no idea that their wilderness discovery will change the course of history.

Cloaked in mystery, Auralia grows up among criminals outside the walls of House Abascar, where vicious beastmen lurk in shadow. There, she discovers an unsettling–and forbidden–talent for crafting colors that enchant all who behold them, including Abascar’s hard-hearted king, an exiled wizard, and a prince who keeps dangerous secrets.

Auralia’s gift opens doors from the palace to the dungeons, setting the stage for violent and miraculous change in the great houses of the Expanse.

“Jeffrey Overstreet’s first fantasy,
 Auralia’s Colors,
and its heroine’s cloak ofwon-ders take their power from a vision ofart that is auroral, looking to the returnofbeauty, and that intends to restore spirit and mystery to the world. The bookachieves its ends by the creation ofa rich, complex universe and a series ofdra-matic, explosiveevents. —M

“In
 AuraliasColors,
Overstreet masterfullyextends the borders ofimagination.Whereas so many writers sacrifice characterization for plot or substitute weird-ness for substance, Overstreet does neither.His characters are richly crafted butstill recognizablyhuman and, therefore, inhabitable. This is a wild and intricatetale, a high-octane, full-throttle fantasy. Fasten your seat belts.” —G

“Welcome to the land ofthe fangbear, the muckmoth, and the MidnightSwindler. To a story brimming with lovely literary rewards and a cast ofcharac-ters by turns loathsome and hilarious, winsome and mysterious. It’s not oftenone gets to be present at the birth ofa classic, but
 Auralia’s Colors 
is that kindofstorytelling. A true delight on so many levels. —C
