Released April 2018
Zalene Ayel left the safety of her home with one goal in mind – saving her ten-year-old brother Pariev from slave traders. That was before she fell through an icy lake and drowned. She should be dead, and yet she finds herself with the Qataeba (the most hunted race of people on the continent) as part of a chain of events set in motion by the greatest sage her world has ever known, who also happens to be the brother she meant to rescue. By allowing himself to be placed in peril at that time, Pariev has shaken his whole family into action against the slave trade, and led Zalene to the one place where she can make the most difference. Families who were divided can be reunited, but only if she's brave enough to be part of something special.
“Lives, happiness, love, countries -- all depend on this taking place.” – Pariev

"One thing I love about this book is that it appreciates family. So many Fantasy heroes are orphans. Here, the sisters look out for each other. And there are characters who are, say, missing an arm, just part of the gang. It's refreshing.
The best part? This book celebrates kindness and helping each other. We need more of that."
"This book really is something special!
Eliza Ames creates a fantastic world that mirrors our own in terms of what humanity is. Her writing is neat and precise and she creates characters that are relatable and in many ways, iconic. Zalene, the story’s central character, is an interesting and lovable creation. I’m can’t wait to read the next."
