In a utopian society where war and murder are mere historical concepts, Rayne isn’t the average 17 year old. To everyone in her colony, she’s less. In the early hours of their second birthday, the Homo praestans experience the Luminescence and awaken to a mystical ability. But the Luminescence never came to Rayne that night.
On her 17th birthday, she awakens from a night which she never should have experienced. Desperate to learn why this is happening to her 15 years late, she soon realizes the answers lie east, in the capitol. If anyone has the answers, the ten councilors of the Pax-Atlanticus Realm will.
An adventurous detour reveals a land destroyed by war and nuclear fallout, and Rayne soon learns that everything she knew about the world and the Ancients is a lie. She encounters a species supposed to be extinct, and in this scorched, desert world, void of the sun and rain, she learns the source of her abilities and the malevolent purpose behind them. It is also where she learns there are other teenagers out there who are just like her.
When she finally makes it to the capitol, she gains new allies and learns just how far the Board is willing to go to maintain control. “The councilors are masters at spewing threats and lies…But I’ve seen the truth beyond the wall.”
Wind and Glass, Fire and Stone was initially published in parts as "The Rayne Trilogy."
Insurrection (The Rayne Trilogy #3) coming February 2019.
