I Am Mai book one of The Chronicles of Eventide Contest Pitch
The Chronicles of Eventide
I Am Mai
The Moon Clan real? Never in her unbridled fantasies did Len’nora expect legend to become truth. The glowing moonstones verified the fabled people existed but are they Elven or human?
In Anaglacia, beneath the Great Sand Sea, lie the countries of Utholden and Ormanda. Darkness is slowly pervading the countryside causing strife and, according to prophecy, only the Mai has the authority to stop it. Personal tragedy caused the Mai to suppress her power and distrust all men after seeing her family destroyed.
The Utholden realm of Eventide is where Len’nora was born but she never asked to be the Mai. The Merkevare was placed upon her chest before birth. It shimmers like the moonlight but not all behold the circular mark, only believers.
She has acute hearing, smell and eyesight, cat-like agility and the strangest of all; her long black hair can fan out for balance, harden protectively like a helmet, once it even formed a blade and sawed through bindings holding her wrists. It is unnerving to behold the hairs whipping around without wind to move them.
The Prince proves trustworthy and together they embark on an enchanted moonstone scavenger hunt. Before Len’nora can embrace the quest, of gathering the entire prophecy, the Peacemaker must make peace with her troubled past by righting wrongs and coming into full power.
