The End Begins: The Nine is a science fiction, urban fantasy novel about a young alchemist, Cassarah Telmar, who thought training at the magic academy was what life was about, until she discovered it's students powers were being stolen by the Coalition, an ambiguous corporation turned warmongering militia. Cass escapes their program and vows to bring them down.
The key lies on the young James Kesumare's mind, who is responsible for destroying the gate technology that's stranded the Coalition and forced them to survive in this backward parallel world. Cass wants nothing more than to destroy them and free her clan, but she's too blind to see that the end begins for both the Coalition, herself, and her clan. She will have to chose between living under their thumb, or dying with freedom.
