Broken Spire

by Sue Perkins


GENRE: Fantasy Romance





Ash’s silvery purple hair sets her apart from her peers and at the magic college of Spires a few senior maeven consider her magic to be alien and unsuccessfully try to expel her. Ash feels a compulsive attraction tempting her to enter the broken North Spire. She believes this off limits ruin holds the answer to her origins, but is not willing to take the chance of expulsion from Spires.


Orm, Ash’s equally talented classmate, is determined to support the girl he considers his soulmate, and promises to help her find out the secrets of the North Spire when they reach the end of their third year.


At the end of the first year, Ash nervously waits to see if she will be allowed to continue at Spires, or will she be sent home in disgrace.







This opportunity would shape her future, become a Spires maeven or always remain the outsider. Rupe saw the others looking at her and gave everyone a furious glare. The students quickly looked away and the whispering stopped.


Their journey took several days. Few villages lay on this route, and they did not collect any more students. Instead they made straight for Laktu. As they neared the town the roads became smoother. Paved instead of compressed earth, with gullies at the side to drain away surface water from the heavy rains. Their final day took them through a dense forest and out the other side.


“Rupe, look. I can see the spires of the college.”


On the horizon they saw rolling hills and stretching far above them the four spires which gave the college its name.


“See there’s the broken one Tuvor told me about. Nobody’s allowed in there because it’s dangerous.”


The procession followed the Searcher up over the hills. He stopped at the top to allow them their first sight of the town of Laktu.


“As you can see, Spires dominates the town. The East Spire houses the dormitories, the West Spire the rooms of the maeven and the South Spire the classrooms.” The guide carried on before anyone could ask about the broken spire. “The North Spire is broken. You are not permitted to enter there under pain of dismissal. If you disobey you will go home in disgrace.”

    Sorry I didn’t get back sooner but it’s now early morning where I am and I’m sure you have all been up for hours, although I have to admit you’re probably in my yesterday as New Zealand tends to be a day ahead of most parts of the world.
