Jonathan Astashinsky has published his first book, The Nine Bishops, the first book of a trilogy. On the verge of 18, Mika is preparing, with the help of her kindly uncle Sam, to run away from the circus where she toils as a member of the despised, magic-less class known as the Filth. Then a terrible accident unleashes powerful magic Mika had no idea she possessed. It's a discovery that will separate her from everything she has known, sending her on an arduous journey through the Kingdom of Seemos, through mystical dreams, through incredible tests of her wits, courage, and powers, and on the path to realizing her true destiny.
