On the night of the closed Eye, thirteen-year-old Pae vividly imagines a creature designed to defeat a plague of mice-like scavvers. She calls it a draglin — a smaller version of her island home’s fearsome dragin predator.Her mental musings catch a passing god’s attention. It tricks her into a collaboration to bring her draglin into existence within five turns of Thune’s Eye. If she fails, it threatens to transform her into a draglin. To prove it means business, it burns one of her fingers into a draglin’s claw through fire and excruciating pain.

But island superstitions run deep and dangerous, friends fall prey to unexpected violence, and tragedies bring ruin at every turn. And even new allies from the Tower, where Sisters dedicate their lives to the Mothers of the gods that walk the land, appear insufficient to help her overcome the malevolent god’s intent to complete her terrifying, agonizing, and fatal transformation...

Charles Brass is the pen name of a middle-ager who believes in the maxim "Write what you want to read!" He enjoys science-fiction above all other genres, and action-adventure tales most within the genre- though space opera and epic tales come a close second. He's not into convoluted explanations of technology or how things work- hey, it's science-fiction! Have fun with it!


He currently works in a small city west of Minneapolis, as a CT/MRI technologist for the local hospital. Writing has been his passion for over two decades. Writing well has been his dream.

He is at work on his next project.


Back in the early days (1988-ish) when I knew I one day wanted to be a published author, I decided on the pen name 'Charles Brass'. Brass is part of my actual last name, and in the bookstores at the time, Brass was between Bradley and Brin in the Science Fiction/Fantasy section (two well-known authors). 


Fast-forward a decade or so when the internet was really becoming a thing. I tried to secure the name CharlesBrass, but it was taken. Then I tried CBrass. But it too was taken. So... I tried Seabrass (as in C. Brass). And lo! It was mine!

So, since then, the majority of my online presence has been seabrass.something. Now I also use charlesbrassMN (my email address here is And that is how I came to use 'Seabrass' in my little online world.
