In the Celestial Empire, a land ruled by Immortals and stalked by Spirits and Beasts, a young girl from the slums of an unimportant city is found to have the Talent that may allow her to become an Immortal herself.
Sent to the storied Argent Peak Sect to harness her talent, she must work desperately to catch up to peers who have been preparing to walk the Way for years. The Sect grants new students only three months to prepare and grow before the true challenges begin and the disciples are freed to battle each other for resources and strength.
Contending with tests, strange teachers, unfriendly peers, and her own ignorance, Ling Qi must not only defeat many obstacles, but find those willing to stand at her side when the truce ends.
Can she learn to not only survive, but thrive on that journey?
Inspired by ancient folklore, modern martial arts, and Xianxia, this fantasy novel offers a mixture of life and action while developing a world both fantastic in setting yet familiar in the humanity of its inhabitants.




A new author coming from a background of game mastering and other cooperative creative endeavors. With original works beginning as choose your own adventure style quests I edited and developed the resulting story inot a cohesive serial narrative, and eventually books. My works focus on exploring social and character development through a fantastic lens and having adventures in a magical world while it's happening. My stories tend to be more character than plot driven with a strong focus on interpersonal relationships.
