From author Laura Sebastian comes Ash Princess, a nail-biting YA fantasy debut full of daring and vengeance.

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed Ash Princess.

When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can't ignore her feelings and memories any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser's warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn't expect to develop feelings for the Prinz.

Forced to make impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she's willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she's willing to sacrifice to become Queen.

Continue the edge-of-your-seat fantasy series with Lady Smoke.

[Ash Princess will] submerge readers in a turbulent and enthralling plot * Kirkus Reviews * Provides a window into the complexities of human interaction and emotion, familial tensions, and the false public face that is sometimes required in politics and at court * Publishers Weekly * Sure to be one of the summer's most talked about YAs . . . A darkly enchanting page-turner you won't be able to put down * Bustle * An emotionally complex, breathtakingly suspenseful series starter * Booklist * Through unexpected allies and daring escape plans, [Theodosia's] trip from downtrodden princess to queen is an engaging one that fantasy fans will enjoy...[as well as] fans of The Selection series by Kiera Cass and The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins * School Library Journal * Richly imagined * New Statesman * The trilogy promises to be a great story of a new queen arising from the ruins of her country * Armadillo * A nail-biting YA fantasy debut full of daring and vengeance * Reading Zone *
