Valley of Bones
Trouble erupts when pillaging marauders attack outlying Sunderland villages, causing the council to lose confidence in Anna’s leadership. As Anna waits in trepidation for word from her father’s army, all she hears is silence. Her scouts never return. When the reports of a coming horror reach Anna, she forges an unlikely alliance and reverses her father’s long-standing policies against gems of power. She trains Sunderland’s remaining soldiers to fight with gems. She’ll lead them to battle in a brave attempt to rescue her family, the army, and the one she loves.
But first she must survive the treachery brewing in her own court.
