Magic, adventure, and mystery await in this clean, YA fantasy.
Denied her Gift by the village Magi, nineteen-year-old Mara is forced to live as a dreg, despised and persecuted by all.
Forced to flee when tragedy strikes her hometown, Mara uncovers a dangerous tangle of secrets and lies that shatter what she believes about her world, and the Order that controls it.
But not everything is as it seems, and Mara must soon choose between her heart, or accepting a destiny she doesn't want.
Mara is dirt— worse, actually. She’s a dreg.
Nineteen-year-old Mara has spent her whole life wondering why the old Magi refused to awaken her Gift. With no magical ability to call her own, Mara faces a life of persecution with no value, no power and no purpose.
When a charming new Magi arrives in her village of Stonehollow, Mara expects more of the same. Instead, she’s thrust into a dangerous tangle of secrets and lies that will shatter everything she thought she knew.
Now, Mara must flee the Order— a powerful organization of Magi who will do anything to capture her before she can expose the truth.
