The Risharri Empire 1
War has engulfed the continent of Risharr for two decades. The vast empire of the Associated Sovereignties has tried to crush the rebels of Cera, but the two sides have reached deadlock.
Stripped of citizenship and exiled for a crime he did not commit, disgraced former officer Liam Colley now lives an isolated life, desperate to return home.
Ostracised for her phenomenal magical ability, thirteen year old Aleysa yearns to start a new life far away.
When they meet it seems that both of them will get a chance to start again.
But Aleysa’s magic makes her the most valuable person alive – and both the Associated Sovereignties and Cera will do anything to win her loyalty. It is up to Liam to keep her safe.
