The Land of Magic(2016)
(The first book in the Sorcery & Science Collections series)
An omnibus of novels by Ella Summers
Mercenaries and assassins, sorcerers and engineers, spies and kings. Magic and technology collide in this epic fantasy tale of action, adventure, intrigue, and romance. For sixteen years, the alliance between the sorcerers of Elitia and the technology-powered Selpe Empire has held. But forces from both outside and within want to see that bond broken - and now they may finally succeed. When the Selpe emperor is assassinated the same night his twin half-Elition sons vanish without a trace, the high king of Elitia tasks his aide Ariella with unraveling a conspiracy that threatens to throw the whole world into chaos. In way over her head, she teams up with the dead emperor's bodyguard, a bomb-building airship engineer, and a disgraced Selpe intelligence agent. But someone really doesn't want them to unravel this conspiracy. And this mysterious someone is doing a pretty thorough job of trying to kill them. At the same time, veteran mercenary Everett Black, tasked with rescuing the kidnapped Selpe princes, enters the Elition Wilderness, a vast land where magic reigns and electronics die. To succeed in his mission, Everett has to put his trust in three dubious allies: a runaway Elition sorcerer, a charming young guide with a guarded secret, and an assassin with a notorious reputation for killing Selpes. If the Wilderness doesn't kill him, then his team just might. The Land of Magic is the first installment in the Sorcery and Science Collections epic fantasy saga. At over 250,000 words, it includes the five books Enchanted, Wilderness, Menace, Machination, and Revelations.
