The First Crack, Omni Tale #03 releases 1 May 2020

What if you got everything you wanted, but it came in the wrong package?

* * *

Someone has made a big mistake!

After getting through the grueling multi-day Appraisement Cycle at the Academy of Omniosophical Arts & Sciences without being cut from the program and sent home, fourteen-year-old Pete Drake is assigned to an element domain--but not the one he wanted!

If his living assignment wasn’t bad enough, the dreaded rebels he’s heard mentioned make an appearance at Ocademy orientation. They also make their intentions known. Pete wants out and fast, but how? He’s committed to the boarding school for the next seven years!

The First Crack is the third installment in Peyton Drake’s seven-part Mind the Portal story by ocademy plenipotentiary J.S.D. Johnston. The 25,000-word fantasy novella gives the first glimpse of the cracks in the pristine academy’s facade. 

To learn how Pete managed to make it through Appraisement in one piece, read part two of his story, Destiny by Design, available now.
And to find out how he deals with his current conundrums and perils, continue on to part four of the story, releasing 21 June 2020.

As always, if you’re curious as to which element might suit you best, take the Ocademy’s Elemental Inclinations quiz, that is, if you’re ready for your life to change, and aren’t afraid of rebels.
