Young Adult Fantasy
In the Alskad Empire, nearly all are born with a twin,
two halves to form one whole…yet some face the world
A rare few are singleborn in each generation, and
therefore given the right to rule by the gods and
goddesses. Bo Trousillion is one of these few, born into
the royal line and destined to rule. Though he has been
chosen to succeed his great-aunt, Queen Runa, as the
leader of the Alskad Empire, Bo has never felt equal to
the grand future before him.
When one twin dies, the other usually follows, unable to
face the world without their other half. Those who
survive are considered diminished, doomed to succumb to
the violent grief that inevitably destroys everyone whose
twin has died. Such is the fate of Vi Abernathy, whose
twin sister died in infancy. Raised by the anchorites of
the temple after her family cast her off, Vi has spent
her whole life scheming for a way to escape and live out
what’s left of her life in peace.
As their sixteenth birthdays approach, Bo and Vi face
very different futures—one a life of luxury as the heir
to the throne, the other years of backbreaking work as a
temple servant. But a long-held secret and the fate of
the empire are destined to bring them together in a way
they never could have imagined.
