About the Book

What would YOU do if you were seventeen, a woodworker’s daughter, and your kingdom’s sorcerer-dictator was determined to see you dead?

Join Kora Porteg in the kingdom of Herezoth as she aids her homeland’s organized resistance. Opposing the sorcerer who slew the royal family, Kora soon discovers she’s a sorceress herself, as well as the unwitting subject of an old and often mocked legend.

Though she accepts she can have no place in Herezoth after civil war should end, she fights alongside the usurper’s sister, a thief, a scholar, two telekinetic brothers, and other members of the group that calls itself the Crimson League.

As their prospects deteriorate, the League has no choice but to make a final stand against its foe and the army that supports him.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- “The story almost immediately jumps into the quick pace which is maintained almost throughout the entire novel. I had a very difficult time putting it down. I HAD to know what was going to happen next. If I hadn't had to turn the lights out so my husband could sleep, I would be significantly more sleep deprived than I am at the moment. Loved the book and will be looking into some of Grefer's others. ” - Sarah Rodriguez

- “Wow! This book has to be one of the best fantasies I've ever read! I've read many books, so that's saying something. The whole book will have you engrossed from start to finish. It's unlike anything you've probably ever read.” - LaKeisha Thomas

- “An amazing book. I love magic and this one is full of it. The characters are a little hard to keep up with, not the main ones but the ones supporting the main one but all in all I am so glad I got it and read it. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys magic. ” - Jewel Faye Hicks
