About This Book
The people of Capriath were once free. There was a social order; the general populace, a gentry, and a monarchy. For centuries, Capriath had remained peaceful. However, when the Sorceress Aubrielle Calett murdered her parents and seized the throne, everything changed. She enslaved her subjects, raised the dead into an army using black magic, and cast the land of Capriath into darkness.
Kagan Greyrose was a normal Capriathan before discovering that she is the keeper of the Garnestone, a stone rumored to give power, immortality, and ultimate authority to its rightful vessel. Unfortunately for Kagan, the tyrannical Empress Calett has been searching for the Garnestone for years, and is determined to execute anyone who stands between her and eternal power. In order to end the Empress’s tyranny, Kagan must align herself with the most unlikely of allies, and learn to accept her destiny.

Expressive, dramatic, AND subtle.
Karlan writes for any character. I feel each personality intimately and the dialogue is perfectly balanced. Pages are going by without blinking, I’m so into it, and the moods just linger when I close the book.

Very fun fantasy. Lots of complicated characters to get involved with and enjoy, humans and creatures alike. Intricate plot that weaves through elaborate world-building. Lots of imagination in this story. Many twists and turns that will keep readers on their toes, and a surprise ending I didn’t see coming! A great adventure, especially for fantasy lovers.
