FROM THE ASHES
For eighteen years Aia Wynnald has lived a lie. Raised as a highborn in the Kingdom of Tharien, she’s filled her days with tutors and archery lessons. But simmering beneath her polite surface is a dangerous gift, one which she must keep a secret. Aia is a Bender. And in Tharien, Benders are feared and hunted.
When her unruly power breaks free with dire repercussions, Aia’s lifelong goal of independence shatters. As she scrambles to piece her life back together while evading capture, she disturbs a vengeful force intent on destroying the kingdom.
Now, with the help of an unlikely ally, Aia will decide the fate of Tharien. To rescue those she cares about will require accepting what she is. But can she risk becoming the monster she’s dreaded to save the very citizens baying for her blood?
AMONG THE FLAMES
After fleeing her home in Tharien with the Emperor's forces hot on her heels, Aia Wynnald has only one goal: To end the two-thousand-year-old discrimination against Benders—a race of beings like her, with a misunderstood gift. But when the Emperor’s Church of Mighty retaliates with a new threat, her noble plans are put on hold.
With her companion Cole Balain, a former enemy, by her side, Aia must halt the devastation triggered by her well-meaning actions. The only way she can fight the Church is with the help of a disenchanted group of rebel Benders who'd sooner submit to their fate than follow Aia's lead.
Can she inspire them to fight and work together to resolve this new crisis, or will her ingrained submissive nature bring her, and the Benders of Dyel, to their knees?
INTO THE STORM
After fleeing Sirabel with her dwindling rebellion behind her, Aia Wynnald must lead her people to a new beginning. But when a declaration of war is thrown at her feet, she’ll need to find a way to control her rebels’ deathly urges. A victorious battle isn’t a won war and Aia’s vision for a future of peace seems like a distant dream.
Going against the wishes of her people, Aia must seek aid from an unlikely source while threats from among her own tighten around her neck. Someone doesn’t want to go easy on the Humans, and they’ll do anything to ensure Aia is in agreement. While those dearest to her come closer to harm with each defiant act, Aia must find a way to ensure the war ends in peace.
But the game changes when something mysterious takes hold of her rebels. The Liberator must race against the clock to uncover the threat slowly consuming her people before war approaches. But how can Aia and Cole face their next greatest challenge when they themselves are subject to its effects?
