Description

As Kassia unravels clues to the mysteries of her family's past, her discoveries make her the target of a man who would use her for his own dark ends.

But he has to catch her first.

Her only help comes from a band of exiles and the son of a man who has secrets of his own. After escaping the brutalities of prison, Kassia and Jack travel together through imperial cities, dark swamps, across stormy seas, and finally into the court of a man who has answers.

Too bad truth can be costly.

How much is Kassia willing to sacrifice to learn the truths her father kept from her all her life?

What if everything you thought you knew was a lie?

"This historical-feeling book has no history but felt vaguely medieval. That rooted the world for me while the deeply drawn characters and twisting plot made me turn pages. I didn't want it to end." - Sara

"This book is hands down the best medieval fantasy novel I've read in years." - Lauren S.

"Kassia is a sassy, scrappy character who hooked me from the opening." - cb

"Stephanie Churchill has vividly created a world that will feel familiar to those who enjoy medieval fiction. Kassia experiences adventures that take her on the full range of fortune's wheel, and each setting is beautifully described. I had a clear vision of mountain vistas, sparkling lakes, bustling cities, and thick forests, and each felt as though I was there at Kassia's side... We get to laugh out loud at her snarky sarcasm while we are sharing her inner pain and doubt. This strong, courageous young woman goes through more to get her happily ever after than anyone in the story, besides the reader, is privy to." - Carpe Librum

About Stephanie Churchill

When Stephanie was a child, she was curious about everything, particularlyas it related to "old stuff." And because in those days there was no internet, when she was bored or wanted to learn something new about history or anythingelse, she could be found sitting on the floor at home reading an encyclopedia.Her fondest memories are of wandering her grandparents' farm in rural Nebraska, daydreaming and telling herself fairy tales, usually with a medieval twist. Upon reaching adulthood, Stephanie developed a love of reading history andhistorical fiction. But never once did it occur to her to become awriter. Working in the field of law instead, it took a nudge from herfavorite author suggesting that she try her hand at becoming an author. Evoking the essence of historical fiction butwithout the history, Stephanie's writing draws on her knowledge of history evenwhile set in purely fictional places existing only in her imagination. Filled with action and romance, loyalty and betrayal, her writing relieson deeply drawn and complex characters, exploring the subtleties of imperfectpeople living in a gritty, sometimes dark world. Her unique blend ofhistorical fiction and fantasy ensures that her books are sure to please fansof historical fiction or epic fantasy literature alike.
