A COMING OF AGE FANTASY SAGA READERS ARE COMPARING TO HARRY POTTER, WHEEL OF TIME, AND ERAGON. A STORY ABOUT MAGIC, AMBITION, BETRAYAL . . . AND THE RAW POWER OF A FRIENDSHIP FORGED IN FIRE.
Fourteen-year-old Augum grew up with enemies instead of friends. That tended to happen to gutter-born orphans living in the rural parts of the kingdom. But after losing everything to an inferno, he starts a new life, even befriending Bridget and Leera, two quirky girls willing to give him a chance. Together they dream of becoming warlocks.
That dream is thrown into turmoil when a vicious tyrant quests for seven artifacts--and Augum's mysterious mentor, the legendary Anna Atticus Stone, possesses one. As Augum struggles with demons from a painful childhood, a sudden betrayal puts him, his new friends, and his mentor through a harrowing ordeal that threatens to tear them apart . . . and change the course of history.
★★★★★ "This story started strong, stayed strong and ended leaving me wanting more immediately (without a cliffhanger ending)." --Nerd Girl Magazine
★★★★★ "An epic journey of survival and self discovery." --A. Hatfield, Amazon reviewer

★★★★★ "For me, what's important is whether the author can create characters that the reader cares about, create a world that feels real, and tell a story that is unique. I think that Sever Bronny has accomplished those tasks here." --MVG, Amazon reviewer
★★★★ "Where the author gets you hooked is that nothing seems forced, the plot rolls out naturally, and the magic and sorcery have merit and a quality based on believability." --Vancouver Writer
★★★★★ "From the fields of a small town to epic adventures that span a kingdom, The Arinthian Line series is a worthy successor to books where our humble hero overcomes all odds to save the day. Like the Lord of the Rings and the Shannara Chronicles before it, The Arinthian Line is a tale that cleaves to the core of our love of fantasy, while feeling entirely fresh and new." --Nebula, Theodore Sturgeon Memorial, and StorySouth Million Writers Award nominee Jake Kerr
★★★★★ "If you're looking for magic, danger, friends and an epic journey to save the world, it's time to start reading Arcane." --Essie, reviewer
★★★★★ "The story started with a familiar feel to it, reminding me a bit of the Harry Potter books, but it quickly proved itself to be an addictive read quite capable of standing on its own.
