Saints of Russalka, #1
February 13, 2018
A too-young queen must learn to control her powers in order to save her empire, but can she trust the man who's taught her to use her gift?
The saints of Russalka work their blessings in mysterious ways, allowing the royal family to perform miracles for their people. But the young princess Katza fears her powers. She's seen grave visions of her bloodied hands destroying her family's empire. When her older brother succumbs to illness, leaving her next in line for the throne, Katza turns to a young rebellious prophet named Ravin who promises to teach her how to control her gift. As unrest grows in Russalka and a foreign monarchy threatens, Ravin understands Katza's fears and helps her find confidence in her gift, and her own heart. Under Ravin's unorthodox training, Katza learns to hear the saints once more⏤until revolutionaries claim her father's life.
Reeling and desperate, Katza draws upon darker and darker powers to stop the revolutionaries, the foreign invaders, and the members of her own court who would see her fail. But the more Ravin whispers in her ear, the more Katza questions whether he⏤and the saints⏤have her best interests at heart. She must choose between her love of Ravin and her love of Russalka itself⏤and decide whether her empire might not be better off without her.
