Seams in Reality
SEAMS IN REALITY is the first book in the Seams in Reality Series. As a freshman in a suburban college near Chicago, Andrew leads an ordinary life until he meets Tonya, a strange woman with an even stranger secret. She is a master sorcerer, and he becomes one of her apprentices. Tonya’s other apprentice is a resourceful young woman named Charley, and they aren’t the only sorcerers in the world. The United States government has an entire bureau responsible for controlling them and the special seams which enable magic. Andrew’s new life takes a dangerous turn when he meets Blake, a sorcerer who knew his grandfather. Blake’s thirst for power leaves a trail of casualties, and in the end, only Andrew can stop him.
“How are you feeling?” Charley said.
“Like I got hit in the head,” Andrew said. “All of a sudden, I’m a sorcerer and part of a government conspiracy at the same time. Being near the seam woke up something inside me I didn’t know was asleep.”
“Tonya told me your grandfather was a powerful sorcerer. When you were a baby, she sensed you had the same kind of talent, but she couldn’t start your training until you were old enough to handle it.”
“She knew me when I was a baby?”
“Yes,” Charley said. “She’s been keeping an eye on you your whole life. This was all planned in advance.”
“And coming to Theosophical University wasn’t a coincidence.”
She nodded. “The BPI made sure you didn’t get accepted anywhere else.”
“I was wondering why I got so many rejections.” He snorted. “My grades weren’t that bad.”
