FireFly Island

"Discover a world at the edge of imagination.  Discover Firefly Island."

Firefly Island
Daniel Arenson



King Sinther, his flesh made of stone, tyrannizes the enchanted Firefly Island. Swords and arrows break against him. Armies crash before him. All of Firefly Island--a land of magic and mystery--suffers under his cruelty.

But one girl, a simple slave girl, has magic that can stop him. Whatever Aeolia feels, she can make others feel: joy, sadness, hunger... even pain. If she hurt herself and shared the pain, she could hurt the mad stone king.

Can Aeolia escape King Sinther's assassins, defeat him, and save Firefly Island? 

Reviews for Firefly Island:

"This is the most excited I have ever been about a fantasy book!" --

"A very promising debut... I would highly recommend this book." --

"The author... brings a crispness and directness to his storytelling that propels his novel to its inevitable, though at times unexpected, conclusion. Intriguing characterizations of both heroes and villains make this a good choice for most fantasy collections." -- Library Journal

"The violent and gory world Arenson has created is filled with interesting details and cultures... he is an author to watch." -- Booklist

"Breathtaking... It's all about pain and torment and horror and, at the end of the day, love. It's a dark fairy tale about the lengths we will go to in order to prove our devotion to our siblings, our friends, our communities, our fathers... I LOVED THIS BOOK. I'm not usually one for fantasy, but I couldn't stop reading it. It's really that good. Check it out. You won't be disappointed." -- Author Robert J. Duperre

"Fans of gentler fantasy will welcome Arenson's novel." -- Publishers Weekly
