Yenni is a fierce warrior princess, but her father is sick with a wasting illness - and she must find the cure. Should she fail, she faces losing her father and exile from her home in the kingdom of Yirba.

With only her wits, strength and sacred runelore to protect her she must travel the strange, magical and unwelcoming Empire of Cresh. And no one warned her about the dragons. Especially not about Weysh.

Weysh is a shape-shifter, sometimes a man, at other times a dragon. When he claims Yenni as his Given - his destined partner - they are tied together by the bonds of fate.

Yenni is no man's - or dragon's - plaything. But other magic must be at work, because despite everything that she thought she knew, Weysh might just be her best hope to save her father and her home in the kingdom . . .

About Nandi Taylor

Nandi Taylor is a Canadian writer of Caribbean-descent, based in Toronto. She's a two-time Watty-award winner, and her Wattpad story, "Given," has garnered over one million reads, and earned the 2018 Worldbuilders Watty award. Taylor grew up devouring sci-fi and fantasy novels, and the stories she writes now are an expression of what she always wanted more of-protagonists of African descent in speculative settings. Common themes her novels explore are growth, courage, and finding one's place in the world.
