Seventeen year old Joshua Rasgard is horribly, painfully normal. He will never be called on a whirlwind quest to save the world, he will never inherit awesome super powers, and as much as he may day dream otherwise, his life will never be anything other than what he makes it.
But in a world where powerful elements and those who control them, the Syches, lie just beyond society’s view, Joshua is plunging into adventure with his fire controlling brother Kael and face a world he has always wished he was a part of.
It’s a treasure hunt! If Joshua and Kael can face down the league of assassins known as the Dark Element that hounds their path and brave the perils of a world long forgotten, Joshua just may find the legendary Book of Light and become the hero he tells himself he is.
Syche: The Dark Element is Y.A. Fantasy Adventure novel complete at 100,000 words.
Additionally, would there be a better way to phrase the last sentence, if the genre leans a bit towards young adult? It's pretty close to straddling that line, and I was wondering how obvious I need to make that.
Thanks for any feedback.
