Liam moved with his parents to a planet that had yet to become a full-fledged member of the empire: in fact, it was so new that it had yet to earn a name-it still being classified as Planet 663-457. They came to study the people and their society, and to judge their readiness to enter the empire.The people of Planet 663-457 were happily lodged between the Iron Age and the Machine Age. The only, and by far biggest, difference between these people and the people of Earth was the fact that they were about four times the mass of the normal Earth human. This, however, didn't stop twelve-year-old Liam from making fast friends with three local boys, and they were soon inseparable.There was one aspect about the planet and its people that Liam's parents didn't find out about until their son was irretrievably submerged in it-magic. Many people of Planet 663-457 had some modicum of magic, but few were strong enough to be able to use it in any meaningful way. Those that might be strong enough were brought to the masters for testing, and if they passed, the masters took on their training.Join Liam as he tries to lead a normal life while those around him seek to control or regulate the magic that is as much a part of him as the very air he breathes.

About the Author

I live in the wilderness of Alaska. My connection to the outside world is restricted to a post office that is nearly thirty river miles upriver from where I live (Skwentna Alaska is on the map), a fixed wireless telephone, and an internet satellite dish. We don't own a car since there are no roads out here. The end of the closest road is at least sixty river miles downriver from here. From there, it's a taxi to the next town of any size (Wasilla Alaska is on the map too). Needless to say, I don't go to town very often because the privilege is simply too expensive.
