Welcome, my dear reader, to a sample of The Maker and the Monarch -- Book One: Brookes of Magic

This is from the beginning of the book, in which you will meet Dr. Sarai Brookes and her best friend DJ Nick, as they both meet Lucian Drake, entrepreneur and collector. Some parkour happens, and a mysterious and troubling dream. The settings vary from Sarai's Asylum in San Francisco to Arkazian's distant realm of Elgin, and into a magical nightmare.
