9781447268550: Starborn (The Worldmaker Trilogy)

Kyndra's fate holds betrayal and salvation, but the journey starts in her small village. On the day she comes of age, she accidentally disrupts an ancient ceremony, ending centuries of tradition. So when an unnatural storm targets her superstitious community, Kyndra is blamed. She fears for her life until two strangers save her, by wielding powers not seen for an age—powers fuelled by the sun and the moon. Together, they flee to the hidden citadel of Naris. And here, Kyndra experiences disturbing visions of the past, showing war and one man's terrifying response. She'll learn more in the city's subterranean chambers, amongst fanatics and rebels. But first Kyndra will be brutally tested in a bid to unlock her own magic. If she survives the ordeal, she'll discover a force greater than she could ever have imagined. But could it create as well as destroy? And can she control it, to right an ancient wrong?

About the Author:

Lucy Hounsom works for Waterstones, the biggest bookstore chain in Britain.

Review:

"Evocative, original worldbuilding and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom." —Karen Miller, author, The Innocent Mage

"A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read." —Gail Z. Martin, author, The Summoner

"I thought it was great, reminding me of Trudi Canavan. . . . What a mix: immersive worldbuilding, secret societies, a flawed and hugely likeable protagonist, and awesome magic. There's a lot to like here, but be warned, this book will seriously damage your sleep." —John Gwynne, author, The Magicians' Guild

"Hounsom's world-building and her 'cosmosethic' magic system have enjoyable charm." —Booklist
