A sweet reimagining of the beauty and the beast tale.


An orphan who grew up thieving on the streets to survive, Yukari has excelled at keeping herself invisible and alive, until a foolish lapse in judgment lands her on the criminal overlord Amund’s bad side. Only one safe place is left for her to flee: Layalis, Lord Talal’s lands.


The legends of the Beast Lord are lurid, and though Yukari doesn’t believe them, the superstition works to her advantage. Amund and his thugs wouldn’t dare follow her, and she may even be able to turn the forced exile to her advantage. Lord Talal’s lands are prime territory, unexploited for the last decade, and if she can get in his good graces, she may just be able to swindle him out of enough coin to appease Amund.


But Layalis is even stranger than Yukari could have anticipated. Though Lord Talal looks like a monster, he proves to be a kind, considerate master beloved by his tenants, and he treats Yukari like a guest. 


Yet despite the beauty of his castle and the bounty of his lands, his servants have a habit of implying that Layalis is a horrible prison, and what initially seems a paradise gradually reveals its darker side. In spite of herself, Yukari begins to care about Lord Talal. Can she find a way to break the curse that has plagued his land for ten years? Or has she escaped to Layalis only to trade her hardscrabble existence for a different kind of cage?

The fifth and final book in the epic suspenseful romantic fantasy Astoran Asunder series. Contains mature content.


Two institutions once held Astoran’s Adepts in check: the now-defunct throne and the cloister of the Seventh Sisters. Upheaval threatens to engulf the realm and topple its last remaining bastion as Eraly races to gather allies before confronting cloister leadership about their role in the massacre. But even as she acknowledges that they must be held to account, she fears that her actions will tear the Seventh Sisters apart, destroying the very institution she’s desperate to preserve.


Meanwhile, the Guardians of the Flame are amassing to strike against the conspirators, and as eager as he is to see justice done, Nevin cannot escape his dread at the prospect of Vonessa exposing her secret. She worries about the potential for violence too, but she’s far more afraid of what will follow in the reckoning’s wake. Can she become the leader Astoran needs?


Every other Guardian has a personal agenda to grapple with as well: Aderyn will at last face her brother’s murderer, Xaran will confront his House’s betrayal of the realm, Cianne will help capture her traitorous father, Kila will discover the fates of his fellow Enforcers, and Amir will take part in the upcoming battle to crush the nobility’s hold over the capital.


Yet they all grapple with the same essential question: what will the consequences of their actions be? Will the Astoran that rises from the ashes be better than the sundered realm the conspiracy created?
