YOUNG ADULT NOVELS
Seri’s world is defined by very clear rules: The beasts prowl the forest paths and hunt the People. The valiant explore the unknown world, kill the beasts, and gain strength from the armor they make from them. As an assistant to Eshai Unbroken, a young valor commander with a near-mythical reputation, Seri has seen first-hand the struggle to keep the beasts at bay and ensure the safety of the spreading trees where the People make their homes. That was how it always had been, and how it always would be.
Until the day Seri encounters Tsana.
Tsana is, impossibly, a stranger from the unknown world who can communicate with the beasts – a fact that makes Seri begin to doubt everything she’s ever been taught. As Seri and Tsana grow closer, their worlds begin to collide, with deadly consequences. Somehow, with the world on the brink of war, Seri will have to find a way to make peace.
“Be dauntless, for the hopes of the People rest in you.”

Arian Athensor is one of the few people in the city Leithon whose circumstances have improved after Imperial occupation, although she would never admit it. Before, she was faced with constant pressure from her mother to return home and continue studying magic. Now, there is no home, no more magic. Sure, her mother is dead, her brother changed forever, and her city irreparably scarred, but for the first time in her life, she is free.
But when a man from the same society as her father comes to town, looking to hire her and her brother to retrieve a magical artifact that used to be in her mother’s care, Arian finds that she can’t run away from her past. Her destiny is intimately tied to the destiny of her city, and one way or another, she will have to fight for it. Arian has to steal back not just the artifact, but her city itself.
