A sweeping, action-packed, and romantic fantasy full of dangerous magic and dark choices, perfect for fans of Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore-set in the same world as Of Fire and Stars. Asra is a demigod with a dangerous gift: the ability to dictate the future by writing with her blood. To keep her power secret, she leads a quiet life as a healer on a remote mountain, content to help the people in her care and spend time with Ina, the mortal girl she loves. But Asra's peaceful life is upended when bandits threaten Ina's village and the king does nothing to help. Desperate to protect her people, Ina begs Asra for assistance in finding her manifest-the animal she'll be able to change into as her rite of passage to adulthood. Asra uses her blood magic to help Ina, but her spell goes horribly wrong and the bandits destroy the village, killing Ina's family. Unaware that Asra is at fault, Ina swears revenge on the king and takes a savage dragon as her manifest. To stop her, Asra must embark on a journey across the kingdom, becoming a player in lethal games of power among assassins, gods, and even the king himself. Most frightening of all, she discovers the dark secrets of her own mysterious history-and the terrible, powerful legacy she carries in her blood.

"Because her blood contains the power to write the future, demigod Asra has been hidden away her whole life. Billie Fulford-Brown narrates in a soft, tentative voice and imbues it with shock and grief after bandits slaughter the village Asra was raised to protect and she must leave her mountain home. Fulford-Brown's subdued tones begin to shift subtly as Asra's journey to save the king from her vengeful lover, Ina, reveals a powerful hidden heritage. Newfound strength is infused in her voice as Asra takes on the necessary sacrifices she must make to save the people of her kingdom. Listeners will be intrigued to see the outcome of Asra's choices.
