Jacob's wife died in childbirth.
She shouldn't have.
But magic exists only in the land of the Six Kingdoms. Not on the mainland where Jacobs lives. No healer could save his wife.
What can Jacob, a simple boot maker, do to address such inequality? Or Zara, a girl raised in the streets? Or Brother Isadore, the priest behind a grand plan to change everything?
Lush detail, wildly-creative magic, and a page-turning ending, make this dark, epic fantasy a tale for all ages, with something for every fantasy reader.
