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. 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.
Complicated but honorable heroes; heroines who are strong, smart, and feminine; magic, romance, and adventure; and excursions into the dark corners of life and human nature mixed with a dash of offbeat humor - all of these make up Kyra Halland's worlds. She is excited to share those worlds with readers, who she hopes will enjoy her 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.
Rashali, a widowed Urdai peasant, lives in a land wracked by hunger, plague, and poverty. Urdaisunia, once favored by the gods above all other lands, now lies defeated and in ruins, and the gods, displeased by the Urdais' weakness, have turned their backs on the land and left it to die. Rashali has vowed to destroy the conquering Sazars and restore Urdaisunia to greatness, but her people are too broken to fight.
Prince Eruz, heir to the Sazar throne, is driven by his conscience to do what is best for all the people of Urdaisunia, Urdai and Sazar alike. His father the King views his concern for the Urdai as an unforgivable weakness, and Eruz walks a dangerous line between loyalty and treason to do what he believes is right.
When Rashali and Eruz meet by chance, the gods take notice. As Rashali struggles to find a way to free her people and Eruz risks all to bring peace to the land, a divine wager sends peasant and prince on intertwining paths of danger, love, and war, a path that takes them from enemies to allies to lovers in their fight to save the land they both love - Urdaisunia.
Epic romantic fantasy for adults and older teens.
