The Storm Gathers
Discover what Kirkus calls “an electric work of epic fantasy,” where allies are scarce and almost everyone will kill for power.
One day, my dear daughter, you will destroy the world.
After being forced from her home five years ago, Alana Zaya has finally been given the opportunity to return and claim her rightful place on the Okaron throne. When her voyage is waylaid by pirates, she soon finds herself stranded at sea, surrounded by strangers harboring dark secrets. But hers are perhaps the darkest of all.
Across the world, Rae Toma is a warrior who can’t walk away from a fight. After years of using her skills to rebel against the regime that trained her, her treachery is revealed, forcing her to flee into the Shatter—a maze of islands that no one has ever returned from.
There, she finds Nur Del Sue, a Stormwitch on a mission to prove herself in a world determined to ignore her.
Forced from their homes, can these characters survive long enough to uncover the deadly mysteries at the heart of their world?
