Enter a magic-infused Victorian alternate history, where silver tigers and demon birds roam, and one young woman is caught up in a sweeping mutiny . . .
In this epic historical fantasy by Kay Kenyon, discover an alternate 19th century where two warring continents vie for power: the scientific Anglica and magical Bharata. Inspired by her grandfather's final whispered secret of a magical lotus, young Tori Harding, an aspiring botanist, embarks on a quest to Bharata, where magic, intrigues, and ghosts await. There she will find what she most desires; less perfect than she had hoped and stranger than she could have dreamed.
Her fate awaits. But how can she make the choice between two suitors - and two irreconcilable realms?
