A magnificent epic of dazzling magic and searing prophecy


From a brilliant new voice in fantasy comes a band of heroes, a world in
peril, and an unforgettable heroine whose unexpected gift of magic awakens
an ancient, slumbering evil.


On a fateful night five centuries ago, three mages made a desperate last
stand, sacrificing everything to preserve the only hope of goodness in the
beautiful, doomed land of Alasea. Now, on the anniversary of that ominous
night, a girl-child ripens into the heritage of lost power. But before she
can even comprehend her terrible new gift, the Dark Lord dispatches his
winged monsters to capture her and bring him the embryonic magic she
embodies.


Fleeing the minions of darkness, Elena is swept toward certain doom--and
into the company of unexpected allies. Aided by a one-armed warrior and a
strange seer, she forms a band of the hunted and the cursed, the outcasts
and the outlaws, to battle the unstoppable forces of evil and rescue a
once-glorious empire...

Synopsis:

A superb fantasy debut — a thrilling adventure of dazzling magic and searing prophecy!

From a brilliant new voice in fantasy comes a beautiful but deadly realm of triumph and doom, where an unforgettable heroine awakens an ancient, slumbering magic into a world cloaked in mystery ... and malignancy.

On a fateful night five hundred centuries ago, three mages sacrificed the goodness of the once-lovely land of Alasea, unleashing a prophecy of evil that has raged under the reviled rule of the Dreadlocks ever since. But now, on the anniversary of that ominous night, comes a stunning girl-child possessed by the long-lost Magic of the Red Fist.

Hounded and persecuted by the minions of darkness, Elena must flee from the Valley of the Moon into lands inhabited by silver-haired elv'in people and giant Highland og'res. Aided by a one-armed warrior and a strange seer, she forms a band of the hunted and the cursed, the outcasts and the outlaws, to battle the almighty forces of evil and rescue a glorious empire....
