About this ebook

A Lost Love. A Broken Destiny. A New Chance.

Throughout her whole life, South has given everything to the Holy Empire, her magic, her power, her children, even her beloved Moon. The only thing left to give is her life on top of a Pyramid. When a rockfall kills everyone except her and her guide, South is tossed back into the life that was stolen from her when she was a child – with a family only she can protect.

Torn between grief for Moon and love for her newfound family, South struggles to find a purpose for her life and powers. Just as she settles in, the Priests she escaped wreak new havoc on her family, abducting South’s niece. Rescuing the girl means sneaking back into the Empire, where discovery would result in painful death.

South Breaks is the first book of an epic fantasy series following the fates of eight magic users and their fight against the fanatic Priests of the Holy Empire.

If you enjoy fast-paced adventures, exotic settings, creative use of magic, occasional romantic subplots and the long arc of destiny, South Breaks by Hannah Steenbock is the perfect book to start a new series with.

Warning: There are a few explicit scenes that are necessary for the plot and character development. This does not mean the books are romance or steamy.
