About the author:
Beginning with the Prydain books by Lloyd Alexander and the Earthsea Trilogy by Ursula K. Leguin, Kyra Halland has always loved fantasy. And, beginning with those books, she has also always loved a good love story. In 1990, as a new stay-at-home mom with a young baby, she finally decided to combine those two loves - like chocolate and peanut butter! - by writing the kinds of romantic fantasy novels she wanted to read.
Courageous and complicated heroes, strong, smart, and sweet heroines, magic, romance, adventure, heroism, excursions into the dark corners of life and human nature, and a dash of offbeat humor - all of these make up Kyra Halland's worlds. Now she is pleased and excited to share those worlds with readers, and hopes that others will enjoy her worlds and stories and characters as much as she does.
Kyra Halland lives in southern Arizona. She has a very patient husband, two less-patient cats, and two young adult sons. Besides writing, she enjoys scrapbooking and anime, and she wants to be a crazy cat lady when she grows up.
"Why is it that every man who wants to rule this land desires you?"
Rashali, a widowed Urdai peasant, has vowed to destroy the Sazars who conquered Urdaisunia and brought her land and people to ruin.
Prince Eruz, heir to the Sazar throne, walks a dangerous line between loyalty and treason to do what is best for all the people of Urdaisunia.
The gods who once favored Urdaisunia above all other lands have turned their backs on the land and left it to die.
Then a chance meeting between Rashali and Prince Eruz and a bet between two of the gods sends peasant and prince on intertwining paths of danger, intrigue, love, and war - paths that will change their lives, the destiny of their beloved land of Urdaisunia, and even the fate of the gods, forever.
Epic fantasy romance for adults and older teens.
