A teen girl raised by her father's enemy develops supernatural powers which gives her a pivotal role in her people's rebellion against the crown
It's been fourteen years, since King Antoine took Elanna hostage. Fourteen years since her father's rebellion failed. Fourteen years spent being raised by the man who condemned her people to misery. A man she's come to love as a father.
Now 20, Elanna is about to be taken prisoner once again... but this time by her father's mysterious righthand man.
Her father wants to reignite his rebellion, this time using Elanna as figurehead. He will tell his followers she is the legendary Wildegarde reborn, a sorceress who could make the very earth tremble.
But what no one knows is that magic really does flow through Elanna's veins. Now she must decide which side she's on, and whether she'll use her powers for mercy... or revenge.
A bold and gorgeous fantasy featuring a brilliant heroine on the cusp of womanhood, "The Waking Land" is the first of a trilogy that will delight fans of "The Red Queen," "Six of Crows," and "Court of Thorns and Roses."
