Death and destruction will bar her way. . .

Kyndra's fate holds betrayal and salvation, but the journey starts in her small village. On the day she comes of age, she accidentally disrupts an ancient ceremony, ending centuries of tradition. So when an unnatural storm targets her superstitious community, Kyndra is blamed.

She fears for her life until two strangers save her, by wielding powers not seen for an age - powers fuelled by the sun and the moon. Together, they flee to the hidden citadel of Naris. And here, Kyndra experiences disturbing visions of the past, showing war and one man's terrifying response.

She'll learn more in the city's subterranean chambers, amongst fanatics and rebels. But first Kyndra will be brutally tested in a bid to unlock her own magic. If she survives the ordeal, she'll discover a force greater than she could ever have imagined. But could it create as well as destroy? And can she control it, to right an ancient wrong?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Evocative, original worldbuilding and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom * Karen Miller *
A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read * Gail Z. Martin *
I thought it was great, reminding me of Trudi Canavan; it had me turning pages way into the night, which is not good at my age! What a mix: immersive worldbuilding, secret societies, a flawed and hugely likeable protagonist, and awesome magic. There's a lot to like here, but be warned, this book will seriously damage your sleep. * John Gwynne *
Has all the elements to become a modern classic of the genre. It's essentially a coming-of-age story that breaks out into a wide-screen fantasy extravaganza with huge stakes * Independent on Sunday *
For those readers with a yearning for a novel with a Trudi Canavan / David Eddings type vibe, but with a contemporary twist, Starborn may be just the ticket * SFFWorld.com *
An exciting new high fantasy story . . . the story moves along at a brisk pace * SFBook.com *
A genuinely impressive debut, and Lucy Hounsom is definitely one to watch * TheBookbag.co.uk *

“A brilliant twist on epic fantasy!”

Not once did this book go in the direction that I thought it would! Every time I thought I'd guessed what would happen next, I was pleasantly surprised by how wrong I was. This book takes that well-worn story of... More

“Gripping start to a fantasy series”

I sat down to read this five minutes and didn't get up for two hours. It was a book which kept me reading late at night and I am so much looking forward to book two!
