GENRE: YA romantic fantasy
In twenty-five minutes and thirty-six-seconds Mia Leronde was embarking on the most terrifying quest of her life by becoming human. The Wise Elders agreed, The Promise an ancient ritual could take place in the fragile world of mortals, as long as her magic and memories were suppressed. Ryder her betrothed would bring about the awakening at a set time and providing they fulfilled their promise to keep their love alive, and save mankind from extinction. They would return home. Mia was one of the last of her kind, a Guardian of Annwn, a peace-keeper of her world and the mortals. Only those with the strongest magic were given such a prestigious role. The roar of the ocean as it crashed against the rocks echoed inside her ears, and she stared as the white foam fizzled and dissolved into the sand. Usually, the sheer power of nature revived her, but today there was nothing but despair. Her hands trembled as she raised them pointing out at the sea. Staring at the raging waters, her heart raced alongside the in-coming tide. Breathing in the saltiness of the sea, she focused all her magic to still the rushing water imagining herself as the ferocious waves. The water stopped, and her uneven and irregular heart-beat settled.
It was dawn and the start of a brand new day.
By sun set, Mia would be mortal and her existence easily extinguished like a flame..
