About Eye of the Wizard

On the longest night of the year, a dark wizard murders a knight and his wife.
The knight's children survive and swear revenge. Sam and Jamie vow to become knights like their father. Neev, the middle child, vows to become a wizard.
Five years later, things look grim. Sam is useless with the sword. Jamie is denied knighthood because she's a girl. Neev cannot cast a spell without growing donkey ears, a monkey tail, or an elephant trunk. The siblings feel like failures.

That's when the dark wizard 
strikes again.

Are the siblings powerful enough to defeat him? Or will they too die
at his hands?



Born in 1980, Daniel Arenson is an author of fantasy fiction, from
epic to dark and surreal.
Like many writers, he began his career writing short stories. He sold
his first story, "Worms Believe in God", in 1998. Since then, dozens
of his stories and poems have appeared in various magazines, among
them Flesh & Blood, Chizine, and Orson Scott Card's Strong Verse.
Five Star Publishing, an imprint of Gale, published Daniel's fantasy
novel Firefly Island in 2007. Since then, he wrote the novels The Gods
of Dream, Flaming Dove, and Eye of the Wizard.

What inspired you to write this particular story?
I wanted to write a book that's simply fun
