How do you fight monsters that aren't monsters?
With magic that isn't magic.
In CHRYSALIS, the island kingdom of Angkara has been overrun by mysterious beings whose mere presence causes paralyzing terror. Defeated and desperate, the ninety-five year old witch-queen conceives an heir to pass on her dark magic. Now, ten-year-old Astra must learn of her legacy and embrace the power only she can summon to fight the ‘ogres’. Simple, right?
Well, not really…
As it turns out the ‘ogres’ are not ogres but alien scientists and her magical power is somewhat less than magical. Nothing is as it seems in this novel of many twists and turns. A diverse array of main characters includes ten-year-old Astra, her troglodyte protector, the ghost of the ninety-five year old witch who gave birth to her, and a beleaguered alien scientist struggling with an existential dilemma.
CHRYSALIS straddles both fantasy and science fiction, blending the tropes of both genres in new and unexpected ways.
