Tales of Blood & Light, Book One
After being kidnapped from her stark existence on the cold island of Gante, Leila must learn to survive in a southern culture her native people disparage. She has no choice but to follow the creed of her clan, flow like water, and adapt to a foreign new world. In this lush, intricate society, exotic temptations greet her at every turn, including a dangerous love affair with a man she never should have known. When civil war threatens, Leila is forced to choose between southern love and northern rituals.
But at what cost? Her choice may have consequences even she cannot predict.
“Epic and unforgettable, lush and lyrical.” –Beth Deitchman
