Book One—KIRINS: The Spell of No’an
By James Priest

Series Description:

A race of tiny magical beings lives on Earth today. They dwell in elaborate tree homes and mysterious underground sanctuaries. Because of an ancient dispute, humans are unaware of their hidden civilization.

They are kirins. 

For thousands of years they have lived in peace, but a deadly menace now threatens their existence. A party of daring explorers, led by the wise magician, Speckarin, is sent to destroy the evil lurking a continent and an ocean away. Failure of this mission would mean death to the voyagers and the entire kirin race. But their success will depend on aid from a truly unexpected source—human beings. 

Fly with these adventurers and witness today’s world as it has never before been seen. You will find yourself looking to the skies for this mystical race of beings, because maybe, just maybe…

Author Bio For James Priest:

Review: ''Having read all three books of James Priest's wonderful trilogy, I have nothing but praise. The scope of this work, which takes us from the middle of North America across the Atlantic on the backs of birds to Stonehenge, is extraordinary. I enjoyed every moment I spent with the kirins. Priest's work resembles Lord of the Rings, but is more rooted in nature and gentler in tone.'' --Mary Logue, award-winning writer and poet, author of Dancing with an Alien and Snatched

Author’s note: This book, KIRINS: The Spell of No’an, has been published and is available on amazon.com. I personally, however, have always felt that the tale would be best presented in a serialized format. Thus, there are three books in the series, and here as a serial begins Book One. I hope you enjoy it.

About the Author

James Priest was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He

majored in English in college, and received a Doctor of Medicine degree

from the University of Minnesota. He spent three years in Japan, caring

for casualties from Vietnam, and practiced medicine in Minneapolis for

twenty-one years. He now lives with his wife, Ilka, and their dog, Taiho,

in the Hawaiian Islands on the isle of Kauai.

Always a fan of miniature things, Priest found it natural to create

the race of small magical beings at the heart of his novels. He feels fortunate

to have found a second career in writing, and is looking forward to

publishing the next book in the series, KIRINS: The Flight of the Ain.
