Breakshield

By J.B. Rockwell

Fantasy | Paperback, eBook


Found at the intersection of life and the afterlife, the Between is a place where science and reason are replaced by magic and violence. It is a place where Typhon and his Huntsman of the Dark Waste spread like a plague and where Talents go to die. The only thing standing in Typhon’s way is Morgan Quendalen and the people of the Shining Lands. They are sworn to protect the last remaining Talents, a precious few who teeter at the edge of extinction. Morgan valiantly fights, protecting these last remnants of magic in a war he's not sure he can actually win. When Jamie Aster, a mortal Talent with undiscovered powers, is put under his charge, Morgan weighs his oath against a desire to save the Shining Lands. Could he kill a Talent if it meant saving his people?



J.B. Rockwell grew up reading fairy tales, folklore and mythology, as well as anything everything about ancient cultures and their history, and never lost her taste for any of it. Unsurprisingly, her college studies focused on anthropology with an emphasis on investigating mythical events and trying to tie them back to historical fact. Unfortunately, reality set in (there are few jobs and less money in anthropology) and, after several years of low-paying, unsatisfying jobs, she went back to school and earned a very practical (and very boring) Master's Degree in Business Administration. Somehow that MBA landed her a job in IT and for the past twelve years she has been developing and maintaining software systems for the US Coast Guard, a job which is neither boring nor unrewarding. She continues to write in her spare time, is the author of several published short stories, and her debut novel, Breakshield, will be published in March 2014 by The Zharmae Publishing Press (TZPP). Born and raised in Connecticut, J.B. Rockwell currently lives in West Virginia with her husband and three cats, all of whom provide inspiration for her stories, whether they know it or not.
