I’m a little late on posting this news, but it’s true! You can now enjoy High Maga narrated by the extraordinarily talented Darla Middlebrook.
Darla, who also narrated the audio edition of Eolyn, did an amazing job with this second novel, though it represents a much darker journey than its predecessor. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Darla again, and I couldn’t be more pleased with her work on this novel.

Shortly after the new year, I’ll be organizing a blog tour to celebrate this release. Stay tuned for that, as there will be activities, giveaways, and a series of posts that reveal the inside story on the writing of High Maga and the production of the audio edition.
For those of you unfamiliar with the novel and its narrator, I’ve posted a blurb about both below. I hope you will consider purchasing the audio edition for yourself or for a friend. This is a great way to discover the adventure and magic of Eolyn’s world.
HIGH MAGA (audio edition)
Karin Rita Gastreich (author), Darla Middlebrook (narrator)
Lands ravaged. Dreams destroyed. Demons let loose upon the earth.
War strikes at the heart of women’s magic in Moisehén. Eolyn’s fledgling community of magas is destroyed; its members killed, captured or scattered.
Eolyn seeks to escape the occupied province and deliver to King Akmael a weapon that might secure their victory. But even a High Maga cannot survive this enemy alone. Aided by the enigmatic Mage Corey, Eolyn battles the darkest forces of the Underworld, only to discover she is a mere path to the magic that most ignites their hunger.
“War propels the book forward, and the characters are at their best when the events engulfing them are at their worst.” –Publishers Weekly
“A must read for any fantasy lover.” -Amazon Customer Review
