YA Epic Fantasy Novel
Five centuries have passed since a war led to the imprisonment of magic. By now, most of the world has moved on and forgotten magic ever existed.
But when Lyra—a poor orphan recovering from her brother’s death—uncovers this long-hidden tool, she sees the many opportunities its release could bring.
Jaxon, on the other hand, was raised in nobility and fears the release of magic will ruin his wealth and take away his status.
Their clash results in a war that has the power to change the course of the world, but Lyra and Jaxon worry only for themselves.
They are prepared to battle each other to protect what they value most, but the harder battles are those against their own morals and history. Those they rely on for support turn out to be unreliable, and those they deem untrustworthy claim to be on their side.
Are they willing to pay what they must in order to survive this war?
