"… a lot of action and tension. Hats off for introducing a plot point that left me with my mouth actually hanging open." — Liz Williams, Philip K Dick award-nominated SFF author.
Madness killed her mother. Now a plague is killing her father. But no one believes that this snubbed academic has found a way to stop this plague. A plague so virulent it's eating through the entire city.
Audra Academician lost the respect of her peers thanks to her radical theories. They call her mad. She hates that. And it means that no one believes her anymore.
The evidence to cure the plague is an ancient journal written by a Mage - a race of people that have been extinct now for hundreds of years. Only Audra can decode the archaic language. And the cure is an ancient magical artefact, the Healing Glass, hidden in a lost corner of the land. She has to convince her peers she's right, or the Glass will stay lost and everyone in the city will die.
But when nightmarish visions start to haunt her, she fears that the same madness that claimed her mother is now coming for her.
Now, not only the lives of the citizens consume her thoughts. She has to get the Healing Glass before her mother's madness kills her too.
The Healing Glass is the first book in an exciting new epic fantasy series.
