Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here’s the beginning of a lush, epic, wholly original new trilogy that shines with magic, mystery, and captivating drama.

On the Veiled Isles, ominous signs are apparent to those with the talent to read them. The polarity of magic is wavering at its source, heralding a vast upheaval poised to alter the very balance of nature. Blissfully unaware of the cataclysmic events to come, Jianna Belandor, the beautiful, privileged daughter of a powerful Faerlonnish overlord, has only one concern: the journey to meet her prospective husband.  But revolution is stirring as her own conquered people rise up against their oppressors, and Jianna is kidnapped and held captive at a rebel stronghold, insurance against what are perceived as her father’s crimes.

The resistance movement opens Jianna’s eyes―and her heart. Despite her belief in her father’s innocence, she is fascinated by the bold and charming nomadic physician and rebel sympathizer, Falaste Rione—who offers Jianna her only sanctuary in a cold and calculating web of intrigue. As plague and chaos grip the land, Jianna is pushed to the limits of her courage and resourcefulness, while virulent enemies discover that alliance is their only hope to save the human race.

Review:

"Brandon's debut, the first in a projected trilogy, is an impressively imaginative epic disguised as an unassuming romantic fantasy. Set in the Veiled Isles, a politically unstable realm steeped in a mythical and potentially cataclysmic magic, the story begins with a nobleman's sheltered daughter setting off to meet her betrothed in a distant city. When Jianna Belandor is abducted by highwaymen and taken to a rebel stronghold, suddenly she's in a very different story. Once imprisoned, Jianna realizes that her kidnapper is none other than her own estranged aunt, who wants control over the family fortune. While the revolutionary and romantic threads are engaging, it is Brandon's multilayered narrative that makes this novel such an immersive reading experience. Rich world-building, relentless pacing, and some tantalizing subplots (involving a reclusive inventor, his automaton doppelgänger, and amphibian 'quasi-men') suggest that Brandon is an author to watch.
