In a nation of lost glory and fallen cities, mad dragons run amok and warlords bristle under the guise of peace. Now a woman must stop the ruin she helped create, but how do you fight what you are fated to fail?
Praised for strong characterization, vivid worldbuilding, and a complex, compelling heroine, this is epic fantasy like you've never seen done before.
"...This genre builds worlds with obsessive fervor, but it is a rare treat to find an author who relishes in a world's most universal relics: its people."
"...strong pacing, lovely prose, and underlying themes of a daughter's feelings of inadequacy in her father's shadow, all of which are woven through every page until it works into a beautiful tapestry."
"Wow. I need the next book now. The grey morality of the entire cast is spectacularly well done. Also, the world building was seamless; I felt like I was in the cities and towns myself."
"...written skillfully...a deeply personal and thoughtful tale of love, betrayal and the aftermath."
