A destructive magic, a corrupt regime, an insidious plot...and the rogue who stood in the way
When tragedy strikes, Lyra runs for her life...directly into the hands of fate. Destiny places her at the heart of a plot to overthrow the rulers of Issalia - a plot she must help thwart.
Led by a man armed with powerful magic, and joined by a single soldier who wields an enchanted weapon, the three must face the most fearsome force the world has ever known. Even if they survive this epic confrontation, the future is not secure, for the threats surrounding Lyra do not end there.
History often forgets the details, and sometimes, history forgets the truth. Meet Lyra: an orphan, a thief, a liar, a bard, a warrior, a princess...a rogue. Her story reveals what truly happened hundreds of years before The Runes of Issalia series takes place. Within these pages, resides her legacy.
The Princess Bride meets Forrest Gump in this coming of age fantasy adventure, depicting a girl's personal journey from rebellious teen to heroic adult.
