Sydney always wanted more from life than working on his father’s ranch. He grew up idolizing his mother, a former bandit turned sheriff, even though he didn’t inherit any of her fighting skills. But when an old family friend needs a spy inside the Petrichor Martial Academy, Sydney finds himself in over his head unraveling a conspiracy to eradicate Nasan’s magical races.
Lanei, an aspiring knight, is running from a life she never wanted. She’s witnessed firsthand how dangerous magic and unchecked power can be, and will stop at nothing to reshape the future. With her acceptance to Petrichor, Lanei is ready to carve out her own destiny.
While Sydney struggles to survive his classes, Lanei’s past threatens to come to light. When a student is murdered, all signs point to Lanei. Now, both must decide who they can trust before it’s too late.
Into the Black is the first in a trilogy of YA Fantasy novels by Brian Work. It is now available in ebook and paperback.
