Product Description (from Amazon)
In a future where ignorance has destroyed the world that we know, humans are slaves and Mages - advanced beings with abilities beyond everyday reach - rule the land.
Avalon Redding is one such Mage. Barely eighteen years of age, she wields the gift of fire yet she is unable to control it. She leaves her family in the dead of night and heads to the city of Frost Arch, her future seemingly grim.
Will Avalon be able to overcome the trials that befall her? Will she be able to save the ones she loves and stay strong within herself?
Time will tell.

For the most part – this has little or no comment about sex or violence or bad language. But there are discussions of romantic feelings between the main female character, Avalon, and the two people she interacts with the most – one male and the other female. There is quite a lot of violence, but it is mostly glossed over without graphic detail, although there is plenty of detail for anyone with a good imagination. Some of the more graphic spots include, one attempted rape, Avalon trying to escape her master after sneaking into his secret room, life in the human prison, and the final fight between Avalon and the main Mage of Frost Arch. She also steals her pet flying fox, and the man transporting it is killed as a result.
