The first installment in Legrand's (Winterspell, 2014) new fantasy series follows two fiercely independent young women who hold the power to save their world or destroy it. As one of two prophesied rulers, Rielle Dardenne must prove she’s the Sun Queen and endure seven dangerous magical trials. If she fails, she'll be executed, unless the trials kill her first. A thousand years later and a continent away, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora, a ruthless bounty hunter who joins a rebel captain to fight imperial corruption in the hope of rescuing her abducted mother. As Rielle and Eliana fight a cosmic war that spans a thousand years, their stories intersect, and the connections between them will determine the fate of their world and of each other.
