Arcanus by Ali K. Eke
Science Fiction / Urban Fiction

Before the Great War, battles were fought and won with magic. In a world where magic courses through the veins of every single human being, a single mage could take on an army of thousands, and a single family could conquer an empire. But even magic could not hold back the tides of science and industry, and modern warfare was born. Since then, the imperial powers of Russia and Great Britain have begun amassing weapons of both magic and science in an arms race against each other. A tenuous peace has remained thanks to the efforts of Bastion, a global diplomatic organization of mages dedicated to maintaining order across the world.

It is eighteen-year-old Kibo Kozlov’s dream to join Bastion, just like his father before him. But some dreams aren’t meant to be, as Kibo had never been able to control the weave of magic. He had nearly given up hope, that is until he stumbled upon a bizarre artifact that might change the course of history—both his and the world's.

In 2024, the Independent Press Award saw participation from authors and publishers across the globe, including those residing in Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Cyprus, Germany, India, Kenya, Japan, Nigeria, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, and The Netherlands.

“The 2024 INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD honorees represent the excellence and diversity of global independent publishing,” said Gabrielle Olczak, IPA President and Award Sponsor. “Independent publishing is a formidable agent. It provides unparalleled content and quality to consumers worldwide and we are proud to highlight this year's awardees to the world.”
