In Saria, women reign.
Their powers come from the Goddess, and her Flamewalkers wear the scars of sacred magic. Gifted with the ability to Heal, See or conjure Fire, they use their powers fairly and wisely.
Then comes Khalira. Bestowed with not one, but all three powers, she is feared by even the other Flamewalkers-a 'freak' among the extraordinary. The leaders suspect that her powers were granted for a reason, and, indeed, there is an ominous threat emerging to the north in the kingdom of Banol where Flamewalkers are burned alive for merely being who they are meant to be.
In Wendy Vogel’s first published full-length novel, she explores the roles of women, power and destiny while taking the reader on an action-filled journey laced with danger and courage as Khalira and her sister Flamewalkers endeavor to bring to an end a madman set on revenge.
“The subtext of Flamewalkers examines how people view powerful women. While some may see them as benevolent healers, others may perceive them as dangerous,” says publisher Catherine Rayburn-Trobaugh. “Dr. Vogel offers readers an engaging debate in the form of an adventure that is very readable and very, very difficult to put down.”
Wendy Vogel lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her chef husband. She is a veterinarian, marathon runner, cancer survivor and SCUBA diver in addition to rescuing special needs pets. She is the current president of the Cincinnati Fiction Writers.
