Pre-order link:


In a land where every murderer is condemned to the underrealm, one girl managed to escape.

Sinisa Strigidae made peace with the darkness that haunted her, and in so doing she freed herself from the crow that kept her bound to Veltuur.

Now, she sets out on an epic quest to help Prince Acari do the same.

Teaming up with an unlikely friend, Sinisa must traverse the Tayaraan realm in search of a key to the underrealm, battle the beast that blocks the gate, and reach Acari before it’s too late.

But with each task poses an even greater threat, and as she uncovers a long-forgotten prophecy that could shape not only her fate but the fate of the realms, Sinisa will be forced to choose between what she wants or the destiny carved out for her.

Heart of the Sungem is the second book in this dark, high fantasy, adventure series. Enter a world where the Reapers are the balance between life and death, where the Gods who once reigned over the mortal realm have suspiciously disappeared, and where one young girl finds that she is somehow tangled in all of it. If you loved The Nevernight ChroniclesDark MajiThrone of GlassReign of the FallenThe Shadows Between Us, or books by Jenna Moreci, Jay Kristoff, Kel Carpenter, Cassandra Clare, and Laura Thalassa, you will devour this grim saga.
