Young Adult Fantasy
A sweeping, action-packed, and romantic fantasy full
of dangerous magic and dark choices, perfect for fans of
Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore—set in the same world as
Of Fire and Stars.
Asra is a
demigod with a dangerous gift: the ability to dictate the
future by writing with her blood. To keep her power secret,
she leads a quiet life as a healer on a remote mountain,
content to help the people in her care and spend time with
Ina, the mortal girl she loves.
But Asra’s peaceful
life is upended when bandits threaten Ina’s village and the
king does nothing to help. Desperate to protect her people,
Ina begs Asra for assistance in finding her manifest—the
animal she’ll be able to change into as her rite of passage
to adulthood. Asra uses her blood magic to help Ina, but her
spell goes horribly wrong and the bandits destroy the
village, killing Ina’s family.
Unaware that Asra is at
fault, Ina swears revenge on the king and takes a savage
dragon as her manifest. To stop her, Asra must embark on a
journey across the kingdom, becoming a player in lethal
games of power among assassins, gods, and even the king
Most frightening of all, she discovers the
dark secrets of her own mysterious history—and the terrible,
powerful legacy she carries in her blood.
