The Gala on the Night
by Justin Kanjirakattu

When siblings Joshua and Fuchsia Hilton rediscover their late Aunt Leila’s diamond ring, they soon find out about its hidden powers. When Leila’s old lover, Peter, chases them out of their small Massachusetts town in pursuit of the powerful ring, they end up in the hidden, mystical land of the Starlight Crescents. Exploring the land, the siblings encounter some special residents, and discover more rings with special powers. However, they also find out about Peter’s agenda to destroy all the rings to power the most forbidden gem of all: the Shadow Ring. As the grandiose festival of the land, 'The Gala on the Night,' approaches, news of Peter’s return to the Starlight Crescents quickly spreads, along with speculation about how Aunt Leila truly died. As they venture, the siblings begin to discover secrets of their aunt’s past, and slowly begin to wonder: are they guarding the rings from the right person?

Residing in the quaint town of Elmont, NY on Long Island, Justin Kanjirakattu holds a bachelor’s degree in childhood education with a minor in English from CUNY Queens College. His passion for writing stemmed out of scribbles in the back of his notebooks, and he expanded these short stories into longer works. Amongst those short stories came his debut novel “The Gala on the Night.” In his spare time, Justin enjoys traveling around his hometown, sitting on the warm sands of the beach, and being a youth-leader at his church. He also enjoys teaching and aims to inspire his students to develop a similar passion for writing.
