Genres: Children & Young Adult, Fantasy, Fiction
The fate of a kingdom rests in the hands of a girl who cannot remember her own name.
Seventeen-year-old Adaliah is the warrior and Lady of Targe, but when she wakes up in the Kest River, presumed dead by the world, she has lost her memory and is being hunted by unknown forces. Injured and alone, she must put together the pieces of her broken past and shattered kingdom.
The world is at war with a tyrannical king who is searching for four powerful swords. If King Cades finds them, his victory will be sealed, and his power over life and death will be complete. The only hope of survival is in the hands of Adaliah-can she find her place in this war-torn world?
