The Luminaries (Paperback)
Tidesong follows young witch Sophie who wants nothing more than to study magic and to study hard! But her plans for training are not going so smoothly; especially not when she accidentally beaches a water dragon named Lir, and their magic becomes entangled—hopefully not forever! This gentle story surrounds you with engaging characters and magical world-building, with wonderful commentary around our own toxic internal dialogues of self-criticism and fear. It’s a story of learning to trust yourself, in the face of both your successes and your mistakes.
