Overview

The Bird Children by Karen Nilsen

Book One of the Phoenix Realm

Avreal of Landers just knows there is something wrong with her, despite her family's protests to the contrary. She has no navel, and she loses her voice on occasion, sometimes unable to talk for months at a time. Her older brother Dominic, a young warlock struggling with his own demons, remembers what his sister doesn't: that she hatched out of an egg and spent the first year of her life as a bird. To keep her from sprouting feathers again and flying away, her family has hidden the details of her strange infancy from her.

However, they are not the only ones who know Avreal's secret. A sorceress and her son have been watching Avreal from another realm, patiently waiting--and plotting . . .

About the Author

As a child, Karen suffered frequent bouts of insomnia. The only way she could settle into sleep many nights was to imagine stories that played out like movies on the dark ceiling over her bed. Since her mean parents refused to replace the TV after the cat blew it up by peeing on the cord, all Karen had left to entertain herself in the lone wilds of the Minnesota wilderness were books and her own stories. As Karen grew, the stories grew with her. One day when she was fourteen, she told her mother one of these stories for probably the hundredth time. Her mother, who knew Karen very well, turned to her and said, “You know, Karen, you keep talking about these stories, but you never write them down. You keep saying you’re going to write a novel, but I don’t believe that you will.” This comment infuriated Karen so much that she started writing her stories down and hasn’t stopped since.
