Every generation, seven sons are born to the regent of the First Demesne, each of those sons destined to rule one of the seven walled cities. This generation, there are no septuplets. There are no sons.
There’s only a single girl.
Forbidden by her father ever to heal again, Iminique Demascus nonetheless saves the newborn princess from a nameless evil. Born into a realm where the poor foment rebellion and the rich revile her as weak, the child is unwanted by both her parents and the people. Iminique becomes her sole protector, forced to ally herself with the wizard who tried to kill them both, a wizard who casts spells that should be impossible.
Meanwhile, in the south, a young sorceress falls prey to an ancient enemy…

As a buddy of Ms. Lano’s, I’ve read a few (pre-publication) chapters of this book, and I’ve loved it so far. I’m looking forward to reading the rest (it’s near the top of my To Read list). It’s a substantial read at over 500 pages, so if you like your fantasy epic in scope, this may just be a tale for you.
You can find it on Amazon
