Missing Magic in the World of the Silver Hunter

In chatting with fans of Tracker, I’ve been asked about the magic of the setting and I’ve ended up adjusting some parts of the magic system since I originally detailed it here https://kethricwilcox.com/2015/01/. 

Here’s the original chart of magic by color:

Gold – Miracles, true Creation (Legendary magic)
Silver – Offensive Combat magic/adapted to defense
Ebony – Defensive magic/Corrupted into Offensive
Ruby – Fire magic
Sapphire – Cold or snow magic noted for healing
Emerald – plant magic/life energy limited healing

What has changed since then is the addition of Amethyst magic and some adjustments to the powers of Sapphire and Emerald magic. So the new chart of magic looks like this:

Gold – Miracles, true Creation (Legendary magic) – No living mages of this color.
Silver – Offensive Combat magic/adapted to defense
Ebony – Defensive magic/Corrupted into Offensive                                             Amethyst – Air magic – the power to lift and move objects – Mages of this color are though to be lost.                                                                                                                   Ruby – Fire magic
Sapphire – Water magic – noted for limited healing
Emerald – Earth magic – using the life energy of the world a mage can heal most injuries.

Amethyst mages/witches are very rare during the time of the stories in the Silver Hunter Trilogy and the talent is thought to have been lost during the last great mage war along with Gold magic. Amethyst magic will make an appearance in book three of the trilogy, Hunter.

Look for book two, Witch to be released in July and for book three, Hunter to be released in December.

Happy Tracking,

Kethric Wilcox

Kethric Wilcox is the author of the Legend of the Silver Hunter series, a M/M paranormal retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Based in Little Rock, Arkansas, Wilcox works as an exhibit designer and graphic artist during the day and writes about hunters, shifters, and humans in the evenings. When he's not writing or designing he can be found running around town with his partner of eight years doing something geeky in nature. Wilcox holds a BA in Graphic Design and one in History. His preferred era of historical research is the crusades and late middle ages. He and his partner can sometimes be found camping in one of Arkansas's beautiful state parks. Wilcox is originally from Boston, MA, and grew up in a fairly typical middle-class family. He wrote his first story in high school English and once submitted a script for a play to a contest around that time as well. He's written several skits for his church over the last couple of years and was planning on working with his church drama partner to write a movie script for independent production, but those plans were put on hold due to illness in his writing partner's family. In 2014, Wilcox challenged himself to undertake a creative writing challenge to replace the script idea and Tracker, book one of the Silver Hunter series was born. Book two, Witch followed in 2015, and Wilcox released Hunter, book three of the series in January of 2016. He is currently working on the first of the vampire trilogy. Future writing plans include a twist on Little Red Riding Hood, a trilogy featuring Professor John Mason and Brom Oisín, Kieran's uncle, and an alternate history set in Venice.
