Deus En Machina by Josh Craig


A story of loss and victory, magic and machines, gods and mortals and discovering what it takes to save the world.

Led by the vision of the consulary and protected by the dedication of the mage-knights, the world has found peace at last. Or so people believe, but the truth is far less comforting. In this time of peace a dark shadow has spread across the world, infecting everything it touches. An organization has appeared, its weapons stealth and subterfuge, its intent destruction.

Only one person can stop this threat, a boy named Trace. The only person who can’t use magic, Trace harbors within him a much more ancient power, an ability which may be the world’s only hope for salvation. But no one can save the world on his own. In order to save anyone he will need the strength of allies, the guidance of masters and the knowledge of ancient spirits.

But that’s to be expected. After all, his enemy is a god.

Note: Deus En Machina is unfinished, and will likely remain so.

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Oct 16, 2010: The first chapter begins with a story from Trace’s childhood. The third person narration and lack of dialogue creates a fair amount of distance from the story. So far this seems more like a children’s story than young adult or adult.
