The land burns brighter in the dark.
Kyndra has finally mastered her cold Starborn powers, but at what cost? She's drifting from those dearest to her - though they can only reunite Acre together. And assassins who dance through time pose an extraordinary new threat. They seek to change the past - to unmake the Sartyan Empire and rewrite the whole history of Acre. And in the Khronostians' new narrative, Kyndra is never even born.
Ex-slaver Char is determined to enlist the help of dragons for the fight to come. They were banished from the world by Khronostians. But, with the rogue Khronostian Ma's skills, he and Kyndra aim to reach the dragons' mountainous city. And perhaps here, they can gather enough power to send Kyndra far back in time - to prevent the death of an era. Yet despite her best efforts, events propel Kyndra towards a confrontation that has shaped and will shape the future of the world.

Evocative, original world-building and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom -- Karen Miller on Starborn What a mix: immersive world-building, secret societies, a flawed and hugely likeable protagonist, and awesome magic -- John Gwynne on Starborn A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read -- Gail Z. Martin on Starborn A wide-screen fantasy extravaganza with huge stakes -- Independent on Starborn A tale that both comforts and surprises, and is pleasingly assured for a debut novel -- SFF World on Starborn A feel similar to authors like Rothfuss, Hobb and Canavan, but a plot line that hearkens back to older classics like Eddings. The great thing is, this isn't a rehash, this is all Hounsom -- Book Frivolity on Starborn Strong and engaging . . . Hounsom's use of characters is quite unique -- SFBook.com on Starborn
