Not Maximum Ride, but a dream
Format: 3rd person
Opening: Kimaya driving Pari and Kelvyn away from a wedding
Kimaya—17, JaThal’s daughter who foolishly [secretly] lost magic
Hasani—15, crippled left leg ‘since birth,’
MiłjǎtaanPari—12, lost magic to save boy
Rađmœr~ mage, restores magic
Æva; 14, granddaughter of cleanser, kept in isolation
Aulis, 19, Kimaya’s brother, falls in love with Æva
All women born with potential for growing magic, which wakens from ages 5-8. It is ‘lost’ by touch between individuals. Most high class women wear gloves and veils. But one village, Miłjǎta, ‘cleanses’ girls as toddlers, to avoid ‘evil’ magic.
Kimaya, Hasani, and Pari set out to find a mage—Kimaya to restore her magic, Hasani to kill him, and Pari because her father ordered her to. Kimaya’s father has Æva pose as Kimaya, but Aulis falls in love with her.
