Product Description

3,000 years after America is destroyed by nuclear war, the inhabitants have evolved, embracing magic and metaphysical warfare. As enemies from across the seas begin to close in, ancient legends come alive, leaving no one safe. The only two who can stop the onset of the darkest evil is the sorceress, Areenna, and Mikaal, the son of the High King of Neveah. With the safety of the world in their hands, and their powers young and erratic, will Mikaal and Areenna find the courage and strength to overcome the impossible?

Born to Magic is the first book in the Tales of Nevaeh series. A mix between Shannara Chronicles by Terry Brooks and The Hundred Series by Kass Morgan, Born to Magic combines futuristic dystopian societies ruled by magic and metaphysical elements with science fiction. The inhabitants aren’t aware that looming just outside the atmosphere, orbits the key to their past. Teens, young adults, and adults alike will love this fantasy.

I stepped back into my fantasy genre reading mode to read Born to Magic: Tales of Nevaeh Volume 1 and am I glad I did! Great tale and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Synopsis (from the author): Long ago, the violence and radiation of terrorist wars killed America. Descendants of the survivors now dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.

Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, is barely eighteen, yet her psychic ability is strong. She is called to The Island and learns that the fate of her world is in her hands. She must undertake a perilous journey to save Nevaeh from malicious destruction. But she will not travel alone.

Mikaal, the son of the High King of Nevaeh, has just as much at stake as Areenna. The quest takes them through haunted wastelands filled with mutants while a vile and evil force will do everything in its power to stop them—for it wants Nevaeh as its own.

What I liked: I thought the premise of the book was great. The idea of a space traveler returning to earth to find a society without technology, and where the women wield magic was so cool to me. Add to it the intrigue of the evil influences in the world trying to conquer the world, the hint of romance that flows throughout the book, and the action sequences, and you have a great read. I also liked the way words had evolved in the story. For instance, instead of rabbits, there were rabts. Interesting way to make familiar things new!

What I didn’t like: I thought I little more background on the evil force would have been nice, but it certainly didn’t detract from the story. Other than that, no complaints from me!

Overall impression: Born to Magic held my attention from the beginning. A nice blend of action, fantasy, intrigue, and a hint of romance made this a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read fantasy!

My rating: 5 Stars

This is the first book I have read from David Wind.
Born to Magic: Tales of Nevaeh Vol. 1 is a story of a futuristic world of fantasy. A world that used to be our own until war erupted and ravaged the land. Now this world is facing another threat. One which could wipe out all life in Nevaeh and send it back to an age of darkness. Nevaeh is now a land where the inhabitants dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.

Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, was pushed by her mother to develop her gift sooner than most girls normally would. After her mother's death, Areenna is secretly trained by Enaid the High King's wife, because the Queen has foreseen the future. A future of darkness for all who live in Nevaeh.
While Areenna, her father the King of Freemorn, and the other Dominions which make up Nevaeh hold counsel, discoveries are made and foretellings come to light. Areenna must visit the Island. A journey she must make much earlier than most, but a journey which all women of magic must endure. She cannot go alone and succeed, but the future of all depends on her success.
Accompanied by Mikkal, the High King's son Areenna sets off on her journey.

I loved Areenna. Her character is one, which while well developed still learns and grows throughout the story.
A tantalizing tale which held me captured until the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed David's story and look forward to the Tales of Nevaeh Vol 2.

Born To Magic, Tales of Nevaeh (1) by David Wind

The story takes place in Nevaeh, America is gone by war many, many years before. The women there have super strength and psychic abilities. One woman Areena, the daughter of King Freemorn is the future Queen.

She learns that the fate of the world is in danger and it is up to her to save it. Along with Mikaal, the son of Nevaeh's King they set off to fight to save humanity. They face many dangers along the way and secrets are revealed. Will Areena be saved from the darkness? Will their quest be a success?

A very original story, very detailed and well written. Each character has their own qualities, some are likable while others are not. There is suspense, adventure and magic. All the qualities of a great fantasy.
