by Tragedy

Mistbourne. A once-thriving magical city, now drowning in shadow. Criminals and an undead plague are allowed to wreak havoc on the innocent so the richest can continue to profit, and the powerful Valyra family is behind it all. The daughter of the Valyras, Arlene, is sick to death of Mistbourne’s corrupt nobles and wants nothing more than to cure the plague and escape with her wife-to-be, Amaya, and live in peace. But in this world, nothing is so simple. A horde of plagued ones is unleashed upon Mistbourne at the same time as a bounty is put on Arlene’s head. The city in chaos, Amaya goes missing and Arlene is near-mortally wounded, only saved at the last moment by a mysterious wizard who also bestows her with a powerful—but cursed—magical mask. The mask grants Arlene the strength she needs to stop her parents and save Amaya, but it also comes with a strange voice that echoes in her head . . . “Kill them all.” Arlene and Amaya are thus set on a quest that will force them to face a tragedy enveloping their entire nation and question just how far they will go to stop it. An action-packed, twist-filled LGBTQ+ fantasy thrill ride, Valyra is an adventure full of darkness and magic where there are no easy answers.

Tragedy (they/them) is a writer and actor. Valyra is their first novel. Journaling to help with the depression of COVID-19 lockdowns turned into writing short stories tackling topics such as inequity and worldwide disease, which eventually led to Valyra. Besides writing, Tragedy enjoys video games and performing in theatre.
