“The perfect alchemy of science fiction and magic… I can’t wait for the next installment!” —C. David Belt, The Arawn Prophecy and Time’s Plague
“The Exalting is a read that will stick with me for a long time, and has me eagerly awaiting the next chapter in Jet and Dana’s adventures through the world of Xahna and beyond!” —Bri Fuller, Goodreads review
Seventeen-year-old Dana has discovered a bloodstone. Its crystals have the power to control the magic and wills of an entire city-full of people. Used properly, the stone would give Dana nearly limitless power, but where Dana grew up, bloodstones are forbidden. She has no idea how to use one, and even if she did, using the stone without permission comes with a death penalty.
Dana isn’t the only one who wants to use the bloodstone. Powerful and bloodthirsty magicians from across the sea are determined to bring it back to their supreme leader. And Dana is in their way.
While Dana struggles on her home planet Xahna, the rest of the cosmos is at war. Unbeknownst to her and the inhabitants of her world, the entire universe is coming to use Xahna as a battlefield. Marine Jet Naman leads his advance landing team to reach the planet Xahna before their enemies.
The fate of the galaxy lies in the hands of two young people who have never met. Outnumbered and outgunned, their only chance to survive is each other.
