A hidden doorway unlocks a power that could save her kingdom ...

Julia is devoted to training with her village’s Townsguard, protecting and providing for her community. Her life is full of warmth and purpose, despite being raised by her stern grandmother in the cold and inaccessible Northern Isles. But when her twentieth birthday arrives and Julia officially comes of age, her grandmother shares secrets of their past that will change the course of Julia’s life forever.
Thrown into a world of magic, intrigue and murder, Julia finds herself hunted by Azor Torr, a tyrant king bent on destroying everything to get to her. But she also finds new friends, family, allies—and most unexpectedly, love.
With the fate of two nations hanging in the balance, Julia must learn to use her newly discovered powers to stop King Azor from his legacy of blood magic and devastation. Julia’s quest reveals her true purpose as a protector, and a destiny greater than she could have ever imagined.
