If you’re not yet familiar with Terah Edun’s THE RED MADRASSA, here’s a peek at the blurb, which is followed by Terah’s guest blog “10 Reasons to Enroll in Madrassa.”
The Red Madrassa
A magical accident threw them together. But when Fate holds all the cards, it can be impossible to tell the difference between pure chance and Destiny…
The Madrassa, a magical school for mage practitioners, is the stuff of legend. With selective entrance exams and quotas for only the most advanced of mage children, it’s almost impossible to attend.
When Allorna, a guardian trainee for the royal family, ends up on the doorstep of the citadel on the eve of the final day of a recruitment ceremony, she decides it must be fate.
She was sure she knew the path her life would take before she enrolled. But sometimes life has a way of throwing in magical curveballs and strange friends, just to see if you’ll trip up.
Oh, and one of those friends is a mage accused of murder, another is a slightly psychotic dragon, the third a healer facing an existential crisis, and the last is a female storm-caller with more hidden secrets than a thief lord.
Do they all belong at the new school they call home?
Terah Edun: 10 Reasons to Enroll in Madrassa
10. Your education will provide real-world use. I mean who wouldn’t want to be a wind rider and ferry messages across the Kingdoms atop a Pegasi?
9. Your education will never be boring. If you have to get ingredients in the middle afternoon from a dark forest then that’s what you’ll have to do.
8. Your teachers are always diverse and interesting.
7. Bullies are punished in creative ways – like cleaning out bedpans in the Healer’s Halls for three days.
6. Natural talent is the deciding factor between grades. Power is king but ingenuity is queen.
5. You are sorted into one of eight Schools: Air, Fire, Earth, Water, Healing, Politics, Research and the Unknown. From there you move into a gatehouse and make friends with people outside your classes.
4. You become one of the most powerful mage casters of your generation upon graduation.
3. The classes are amazing.
2. You run the risk of never wanting to leave.
1. You’re likely to be accused of treason.
Terah Edun is a young adult fantasy writer born and raised in the Atlanta metropolitan area, who transplanted to the Northeast region for college, and now lives in South Sudan. She writes the stories that she always loved to read as a young girl.
She prefers tales of adventure, magic, fellowship and courtship – in other words high fantasy. But she’s not adverse to the occasional contemporary fantasy coming her way. Sometimes you’ll see cloaks, daggers, independent and strong girls, independent and strong guys, sweet and soft spoken girls, sweet and soft spoken guys, markets, cute guys, sparkly magic and irritatingly know-it-all boys. The book she’s currently working on is SWORN TO RAISE, the first in the Courtlight series.
Outside of writing, she’s a international development professional with a penchant for Starbucks.
