Kiera Alexander is the only surviving child of Mage-King Desmond Michael Alexander. She is a Rune Wright, one of a very small number of Mages who can see the flow of magic and manipulate it instinctively.
After the death of her father and brother in a shuttle explosion, Kiera became the Mage-Queen of Mars. As she was too young to rule at the time of Desmond’s death, the Protectorate of Mars was ruled by Prince Regent Damien Montgomery until she came of age.
Kiera is a young queen, but she is extremely capable and has been guided well by Damien. She has a strong friendship with Roslyn Chambers, and has moral fortitude and wisdom beyond her years.
Kiera is also a pragmatist. She knows that the rare gift of being a Rune Wright needs to be passed down to her heir. Fortunately for her and for the Protectorate, she actually does want a husband and, eventually, a family. But for a young woman as remarkable and self-assured as she is, finding a worthy match among the Mages of the Protectorate has proven challenging.
And the people responsible for the death of her father are still out there, lurking in the shadows…
See Kiera in action in her first solo adventure in the novella Mage-Queen’s Thief: A Starship’s Mage Universe Novella, available now!
