Beyond the Midnight Mountain
As empress, Yania is her people’s protector. But traitors have made an attempt on her life, she’s fled the palace, and now it’s time to protect herself.
She disguises herself as a commoner and convinces three traveling brothers to take her north with them to the lowlands. There, she'll seek help reclaiming her throne—if her friends there are still on her side. The empire believes the missing empress is dead, and her pursuers are determined to keep up that story. On top of that, Yania learns she’s partially responsible for the brothers’ past misfortunes. As she races to fix messes before they find out who she is, and before facing death to battle for her throne, her persuers are closing in on her.
