Beyond the Midnight Mountain
Yania is her people’s Empress Protector. But she can’t protect her from own household from an attack within. The best she can do is obey a dying wish, and flee to protect herself.
She changes her name to Ket and convinces three travelers to take her north with them. They reluctantly agree, but have no idea of the danger stalking them. Ket must separate herself from her past—and her pursuers—in order to start over. But the past refuses to leave her in peace and, as she comes to know her companions, she learns their pasts have already collided.
