One will stand.
In the realms of Algernon, prophesy among those with the sight foretells of a young warrior who will rise to unexpected heights while attempting to save her family. Ariel's mother knows the truth of her daughter's future long before Ariel is aware of her own destiny. The problem is, a brutal tyrant whose coup has claimed the realms as his own, also knows the truth. So when Ariel's father speaks out against the false king, foresight becomes reality and prophecy begins to unfold.
Returning from the village to find her home in flames, Ariel is unable to save her brother, who dies attempting to protect her from an assassin. Fleeing for her life, she is forced to take refuge in the Shade, the formidable forest where myth and legend converge. Beginning with the quest to find her family, she will learn to trust a fellow warrior she detests, to gather a ragtag group of outcasts in need of compassion, and to finally realize that the needs of the many outweigh her own desire for revenge.
The Fearless Rise is an inspiring, action-packed adventure featuring an unforgettable, hot-tempered young heroine with extraordinary courage and valor. This first volume in the series, The Realms of Algernon, marks the arrival of a fresh new voice in fantasy fiction.
