The Hurricane Wars - The Hurricane Wars Book 1 (Hardback)Thea Guanzon (author)
A magical orphan and a ruthless warrior find themselves on opposite sides of the titular conflict in the first instalment of Guanzon's scintillating fantasy series.
The Night Empire will rule all.
Nothing can stand in the way of its might and power.
Little by little, year by year, the Hurricane Wars take more and more from those who resists the empire's supremacy.
And yet, there is hope in the darkness.
One lone light stands against the empire.
Talasyn was left on the steps of a Sardovian orphanage as a baby. All she has ever known are the Hurricane Wars, as her people fight for freedom from the tyranny of the Night Emperor Gaheris. But are they her people? Talasyn dreams of one day finding where she comes from - her true place, family, and the source of the Lightweave magic that flows through her veins like sunlight.
Alaric of House Ossinast, Master of the Shadowforged Legion and Gaheris's only son and heir has been forged into a weapon by his father. Tasked with obliterating the Sardovian Allford alliance with the strength of his armies and mighty Shadow magic, all Alaric can see is their goal: extinguish all threats to the empire.
That is until he sees Talasyn burning brightly on the battlefield with the magic that killed his grandfather, turned his father into a monster, and ignited the Hurricane Wars. He tries and fails to kill her, his now greatest enemy slipping through his fingers.
But a greater threat is coming. One that will overshadow the Hurricane Wars.
Will these mortal enemies be able to come together to confront it or is everything that has been fought over for so long about to be destroyed?
