Thanks to her special gift Judah has enjoyed a privileged life, being raised alongside Gavin, the son and heir to Lord Elban's vast empire. But as they grow Judah comes to realise that while Gavin is being groomed for his future role, she has no true position, and no hope of ever travelling beyond the castle walls. Lord Elban has plans for Judah - for all of them - but to him, she's nothing but a pawn. And he will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
But he's not the only one with plans. Outside the castle wall - in the starving, desperate city - is a healer with his own secret power and his own plans for the empire . . . and Judah.
The girl who started life with no name and no history will soon uncover more to her story than she ever imagined.
An epic tale of greed and ambition, cruelty and love, this deeply immersive novel is about bowing to traditions and burning them down. ___________
