Golden Ambitions

Is being a rebel is worth the trouble?

An ambition that goes against tradition…

When Rizelya catches young Eiden following the fighting-pack, she sends her back home. After all, what can someone with air magic do in a fight against the monsters? Tradition holds that only the women with Fire magic, and the men with shapeshifting magic, can battle the monsters.

But Eiden won’t give up her dream of adding her Air Talent to those protecting their people. Rizelya discovers Eiden trying to learn how to fight in secret. She reminds Rizelya of herself at that age, when no one believed in her.

She must make the difficult choice to destroy Eiden’s ambition or help her. The catch, in helping her, Rizelya could lose her own position in the fighting-packs.

Short and interesting prequel to the series

I’ve read the series, so the story was quite familiar while clearly being at an earlier point in time.

Quick and enjoyable read. Wets your appetite for the series.



I really enjoyed this

Rizelya is headstrong and often gets into trouble as she goes against the imposed rules of the clan. This time round she takes it upon herself to train a yellow to fight the monsters knowing full well that air magic was not for warriors. But Eiden wanted to protect her people too, and Rizelya believed in her.

I love that these two young headstrong women brought a change of attitude to the clan elders and more equality among the people.
