Wizards are forged, not born.
Vic the Blade was once a shy but ambitious scholar. That life ended when a vicious tyrant stripped away everything she was, forging her into something darker. Deadlier. Now she fights a war against him, seeking to avenge her lost innocence.
Prince Ashel leads a carefree life, more renowned for his musical prowess than his royal blood. A murder leads him to swap his harp for a dagger, but his path of revenge leads straight into the tyrant's trap.
Determined to rescue Ashel, Vic must first reckon with a mysterious race who hold the key to defeating her enemy. A legendary power may be her only chance to destroy him, if it doesn't kill her first.
Fans of dark fantasy will love this gritty tale of empowerment and revenge in a setting that echoes the classic science fiction of McCaffrey and Herbert.
