Restriction Publisher's Summary

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Arthur C. Clarke)

She didn't mean to use magic.

She didn't even know she had magic.

She just wanted to save her brother, who was dying in her arms.

Accused of using illegal magic, and sentenced to a cruel death at the hands of the city's guards, Hannah has no choice but to trust in the aid of a strange old man who wields unimaginable power.

The Founder has returned to correct the wrongs of unjust. But to do that, he needs Hannah, a young woman from the city slums. She has a key to unlocking a power even greater than his own - if she can only learn to trust herself and the magic flowing within her blood.

Restriction is a fantasy set in the far future, where magic and monsters ravage the land of Irth and only the strong survive.

Set on the foundation laid by the Kurtherian Gambit Series, Restriction tells an entirely new story in the Age of Magic - and of the heroes and villains who battle for control of its destiny.

Listen now and enter the Age of Magic....

    Hannah and Ezekiel dig deeper into the corruption of the Noble Quarter, and the sick truth of Adrien’s master plan becomes clear. They need to call upon the diverse group of those loyal to the cause in order to stop the Chancellor’s reign of terror--before any more innocents die by his hand. Meanwhile, Karl and Parker enlist a powerful ally to help them battle against the Prophet’s lies, and Gregory prepares for something far more dangerous than battle--a formal ball at his parent’s house.

    The quest to save the Oracle forces Team BBB to split up: one group heads to the top of an ancient mountain, the other into the depths of a haunted jungle. For Hannah, it’s an all out fight that pushes her magic to the limits, while Karl is tasked with something far more challenging - diplomacy. Both groups will need to depend on the strength of their teammates, while cautiously navigating the cultures and practices of strange, new inhabitants of the furthest reaches of the world.
