After a particularly rocky night, Kat and Adyn resume their journey with an unexpected stop along the way. A new companion joins the group, which leaves Adyn questioning t only his prejudices, but his faith in Kat's abilities, as well. When the pair learns some startling new information, they continue to make their way home with a new goal in mind: to set up a meeting with one of the famed, elusive Deia... This second installment of the Mage Pair Chronicles is set in present-day America in the wilderness of Kansas.
Xan Overton is 20 years old and lives in Missouri with her boyfriend, Zakery. She grew up as a nomadic Californian, graduated high school as a Junior at the age of 17, and currently works in a group home for mentally disabled individuals (and loves her job). Xan is an avid gamer, but is more of an avid writer, and occasionally enjoys getting lost in a good book. She aspires to be an officer in the U.S. Navy, but would take a biologist as a close second. She enjoys various arts and crafts, including the long lost arts of chainmaille and bookbinding, sewing, sketching and digital art, and, of course, literary arts.
