People say there is strength in numbers.
She must find strength in being alone.
In Itharia, emotions vanish when a person’s magic sets in. This makes tears a precious commodity, because when tears break through the spell banishing people’s emotions, they become magic themselves.
Sixteen-year-old Ambry Csille is an outcast. Unlike her kinsmen, who wield magic but feel nothing, Ambry never developed powers…and she feels everything. The night after sneaking out to an exclusive black market in the hopes of obtaining some coveted, enchanted tears powerful enough to awaken her dormant magic, her brother, Ren, gets taken in an Arcaian raid.
In her solitary life, Ren is the only one who comes close to understanding her. She has to get him back. Ambry puts her trust in the mysterious rogue, Talon Haraway, who she suspects is an Arcaian soldier and knows the ins and outs of the Arcaian army. But even Talon isn’t the ally she thought he was. To save her brother, she’ll have to embrace what makes her different. But can Ambry do that when it means being on her own?
Get ready for an epic fantasy with bold twists, riveting, magic-powered technology, and a slow-sizzle romance in Such a Secret Place, the first book in a completed four book series.
