Rough Magick Publisher's Summary

NIKSABELLA the gnome has tinkered in the shadows for years, developing an invention that might change the world - even if she doesn't know it. She has few friends and even fewer allies in Hightower, where social and academic status is crucial. Her brother NIKSELPIK is an obstinate wizard who drinks heavily, sings dirty songs, and makes unmannerly passes at gnomestresses.

A dark addiction consumes him, giving him increased power while also pushing him closer to death. Dark, otherworldy creatures, foreign to the lands of SULLENOR, have suddenly appeared, making chaos wherever they go. In the wake of this, Niksabella must fight to protect her life and her invention, while Nikselpik engages the enemy as an unlikely counselor to Hightower's military elite.

Will the gnomish siblings find their true powers together, or perish apart? And will they overcome the wounds of their childhood before it's too late? Rough Magick is Book One in the GnomeSaga trilogy by fantasy standout Kenny Soward. It continues in Book Two, Tinkermage (December 2014), and concludes in Cogweaver (February 2015).

    Nikselpik Nur has become the city of Hightower's staunchest - albeit unwilling - ally. He's hardly learned to cope with his debilitating bugging addiction, much less take on the duties of being the city's First Wizard. Can he embrace this new path? And will he? Meanwhile Stena Wavebreaker is pulled from her seafaring duties by the Precisor General and given command of a raggedy airship to scout the ultraworldly enemy from the perilous skies above the Southern Reaches.
