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?"
Urdaisunia was once the greatest civilization in the world. But now it lies in ruins, conquered by the barbarian Sazars, wracked by plague and famine, and threatened by enemies from all sides.
Rashali, a widowed Urdai peasant, has vowed to destroy the Sazars and restore her land to greatness, even if it means sacrificing her own life.
Prince Eruzasharbat, heir to the Sazar throne, walks a dangerous line between loyalty and treason in order to do what is best for all the people of Urdaisunia.
The gods, who once favored Urdaisunia above all other lands, cannot agree on who should be allowed to rule the land - the Sazars or the Urdai, or another ruler chosen by war. While they argue, Urdaisunia and its people are dying.
Then a chance meeting between Rashali and Prince Eruz leads to a wager between two of the gods, and sends peasant and prince on intertwining paths of danger, intrigue, love, and war - paths that will change their destinies, the destiny of Urdaisunia, and even the fate of the gods, forever.
Epic romantic fantasy for adults and older teens.
