Following daughter of failed revolutionaries, Vesper Vale, as she sets out to save her father from the same deadly fate as her mother by cheating her way into prince’s elite squad of soldier-sorcerers and his cold heart, Sunya Mara’s epic fantasy debut, The Darkening, is a gripping must read for the summer. To celebrate its release, we’re so excited to be giving three readers the chance to add it to their bookshelves!
Vesper Vale is the daughter of revolutionaries. Failed revolutionaries. When her mother was caught by the queen’s soldiers, they gave her a choice: death by the hangman’s axe, or death by the Storm that surrounds the city and curses anyone it touches. She chose the Storm. And when the queen’s soldiers—led by a paranoid prince—catch up to Vesper’s father after twelve years on the run, Vesper will do whatever it takes to save him from sharing that fate.
Even arm herself with her father’s book of dangerous experimental magic.
Even infiltrate the prince’s elite squad of soldier-sorcerers.
Even cheat her way into his cold heart.
But when Vesper learns that there’s more to the story of her mother’s death, she’ll have to make a choice if she wants to save her city: trust the devious prince with her family’s secrets, or follow her mother’s footsteps into the Storm.
