Product Description: A poor, young woman rises to the heights of a crumbling empire, where she must speak hard truth to power in order to save a world from chaos.
Everybody Wants Answers. No One Wants the Truth.
The Arunkel empire has stood a thousand years, forged by wealth and conquest, but now rebellion is stirring on the borders and treachery brews in the palace halls. Elsewhere, in a remote mountain village, a young mother sells the prophesies of her sister, Amarta, in order to keep them and her infant child from starving. It's a dangerous game when such revelations draw suspicion and mistrust as often as they earn coin.
Yet Amarta's visions are true. And often not at all what the seeker wishes to hear.
Now in a tapestry of loyalty, intrigue, magic, and gold, Amarta has become the key to a ruler's ambitions. But is she nothing beyond a tool? As Amarta comes into her own as a seer, she realizes she must do more than predict the future. She must create it.
