Title: SIGN OF THE STAR
Genre: YA High Fantasy
Princess Ilyra is dead, and seventeen-year-old healer Janni plans to keep it that way.
But then she meets Brennant, a fugitive nobleman seeking to end her uncle’s increasingly unlawful reign. Pursuing the rumours that the princess lives, Brennant is certain he can help her reclaim her throne—if he can find her. When circumstances force them together, Janni is forced to come to terms with her past, and the deadly repercussions it brings.
Yet Janni possesses a power not even she understands, and her actions shape the destinies of those around her. As they journey across mountains, deserts, and the sea, she will destroy a castle, battle the winds themselves, and unravel a plot to annihilate a neighboring kingdom. As her abilities grow, Janni realizes she must soon decide—remain a healer, or take back the throne she abandoned—though it could cost her everything she’s come to hold dear.
Stolen lantern swinging wildly as I clasped it tight, I hurtled down the musty passageway, desperate to keep up with the tiny ermine leading me to safety.
