*shrugs* I'm just Tabia, a girl from Iljosk. I can use magic by drawing it from the air, which is a bit rare and a lot easier than dragging a heavy staff around.
What is your role in the story?
For the first part of the story I'm a slave, so my role is to do as I'm told, which is mainly to learn magic. Later my role is to help myself and my friends to be free and safe. It's a dangerous world!
What is your favorite hobby?
I love to read. I don't steal books anymore, honest!
What is the challenge you are trying to overcome in the story?
I'm mostly trying to learn magic and not die or kill anyone who doesn't deserve it.
If you had one wish, what would it be?
I'd wish for everyone to be free and to stop killing lions for entertainment. I mean really, it's just not nice! I also wouldn't mind a pet wyrm.
Title: Crimson Fire
Author: Mirren Hogan
Magic was the last thing on Tabia’s mind — until she discovered she could use it. When her father hands her over to the princess of a neighbouring country to pay his debts, she may have the chance to learn how to control her new abilities.
But her new mistress’ enemies have plans of their own. Caught up in a web of divided loyalties, coercion and betrayal, Tabia can trust no one.
Can Tabia find a way to regain her freedom and return home — or will the struggle cost her the ultimate price?
