Discontinued 11 Feb 2015

I am very sorry to announce that Kestrel has been discontinued. My company, Story Ideals Interactive, no longer has permission to publish the story or to finish it.

My heartfelt thanks to all of you who read and enjoyed the story. We couldn’t have come this far without you. If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Please visit this page to find out how to request a refund from Apple.

I hope to publish more interactive fiction stories in the future. If you have a story you would like to publish, or are interested in writing one, I’d love to hear from you.

Best wishes,

Dan Reese


An Interactive Fiction Adventure Novel

Kestrel is a bright young woman ready to finish school and get her dream job in mathmagics. But not everything is as it seems. Born to a legacy she doesn’t understand, events may sweep her down a road different than the one she set out to follow. Your choices will decide her future—and the future of those around her.

The Story

Growing up on a farm where she watches the city lights at night, Kestrel dreams of a better future. One without cows. She’s even got her eye on a handsome young man. But when two forces of magic collide, Kestrel finds herself caught up in a conflict that will change the world forever. And she may be the deciding factor.

You Decide

You make choices for Kestrel, changing how the story unfolds. You choose where Kestrel goes, who she trusts, and how she reacts to the events around her. Depending on your choices, she can end up on either side of the conflict or weave a path along the middle. Unlike similar adventure novels with paths you can choose that lead to abrupt or fateful choices, there are no bad endings in this story. Every choice leads to a complete tale.

How It Works

Read the first chapter for free. Enjoy thousands of unique reading paths, with more to come. There are currently five chapters available, with new chapters published as they are finished. Kestrel is on sale for 70% off until the book is complete.
