My First Novel
Bookish Prince Ruarnon longs to prove his readiness to begin co-rule with his father, when he comes of age.
High King Kyura is determined to preserve his father’s legacy of peace with Ruarnon’s kingdom, against a growing tide of opposition.
Aussies history nerd Linh and class clown Troy are stranded and just trying to get home.
The monster hoard bound for Ruarnon’s continent would like to kill them all. Overcoming it requires the most unlikely of allegiances.
