The Door to the Lost

The Borneo Post - Good English - - Short Story Section - By Jaleigh John­son

There was no warn­ing the day magic died in Tal­haven. It hap­pened with a gi­ant ex­plo­sion and the ar­rival of a sky­ship full of chil­dren, all with magic run­ning through their veins and no mem­ory of home.

Rook and Drift are two of those chil­dren, and ever since that day, they’ve been on the run, mag­i­cal refugees in a world that doesn’t trust magic. Be­cause magic doesn’t die right away-it de­cays, twists, and poi­sons all that it touches. And now it’s be­gin­ning to poi­son peo­ple.
