The Stone Mage & The Sea Publisher's Summary

The Stone Mages rule the huge deserts of red sand. The vast coastlines are ruled by Sky Wardens. Magic is everywhere but not all have the power to control and direct it. Any child found to have magical ability is sent to the Haunted City to be trained in the Change.

On the coast of the Strand, Sal and his father arrive in the small, apparently normal town of Fundelry, where the locals are suspicious of newcomers and of anyone who stands out or appears different. Sal and his father are on the run from an unnamed someone...or something.

When a local bully attacks Sal, he is rescued by Shilly and her teacher, Lodo. Lodo is marked with mysterious tattoos and seems to know a lot more about Sal than Sal knows about himself. Sal's father wants to stay but the Sky Wardens will be coming. Sal needs to learn what connection Lodo had with his mother and what fate seems to have been chosen for him before he was even born.

    Sal's life has been thrown into turmoil, and he's on the run - from more than one pursuer, it appears. He is accompanied by his new-found friend, Shilly, and he's not entirely sure where he wants to go. But Shilly is. She wants to find her teacher Lodo's old teacher, the Mage Van Haasteren, which means they must head north to the Interior, where Sal's mother was born. The journey is over rugged, mountainous country on the Old Line, and it's dangerous.

The ghosts that live behind the ancient glass of the City are restless.
