"Vivid world building, interesting plot, and a gorgeous book.... If you liked Jordan's Wheel of Time books I think you will like this one as well."Nadine, Goodreads
This novella is part three of Ghosts in the Yew, also available as a collection.
Enhedu's hostile neighbors have plans of their own.
Across the country magic grows.
"Everything we knew or loved was gone. We felt each of the wounds that had killed us and longed for the touch of our kin – longed to see the smile or hear the coo of our children."
The country is tested in this epic fantasy surrounded by the mystery of old gods, blood magic, and statecraft. Ignited by redemption and conquest, this journey will test their struggles to survive and will put them at odds with their families, their nation, and the very powers that shaped the world. But, this story is bigger than them.
It's bigger than all of us..
You can read the trilogy in full volumes, or broken up into five novellas each.
The Vestal Series
