Fire & Reign #1
by: H. Danielle Crabtree
Genre: Young Adult/Fantasy
If trouble can be found, Lady Myah Leicht will find it…or so her mother and uncle believe.
As the future High Lady of Nordlin, council meetings and polite socialization rule Myah’s life and challenge her forthright nature. But playing by her family’s rules is a necessary evil if she ever wants to convince her uncle that she is ready to learn to use her magic.
However, when a plague rips through the capital city, Myah throws the rules out the window and joins the son of a visiting nobleman on a raid to steal medicine from a neighboring kingdom. When the venture fails, an enemy soldier—a boy not much older than she is—pursues Myah into the forest. She is certain she is going to die at his hands until a bear-size wolf saves her life.
Safe at home, she tries to forget the wolf and the boy as she navigates the politics of court. Her life gets more complicated when she finds herself once again face-to-face with the boy from the woods. Although suspicious of his motivations, her instincts tell her to trust him.
But trusting him could bring war to the northern kingdom, and jeopardize those she holds dear.
And then there is the matter of the wolf…
