  • Raybearer, Jordan Ifueko
    Amulet Books, 9781419739828, April 14, 2020 (Young Adult)

    “If you’re looking for engrossing, high-stakes fantasy, you need this emotionally rich, gorgeously written novel. It’s about about power that winds up being about love, sacrifice, honor, and family— that we choose and are given. Raybearer is absolutely brilliant, gripping, and one-of-a-kind. I can’t wait to read more from this author.”

    Tegan Tigani, Queen Anne Book Company (Seattle, WA)

    Raybearer is gorgeously written, and filled with legends, mystical powers, blood oaths, and curses. It begins in a fable-like setting that unfolds into a complex world of secret histories and betrayals. Tarisai was raised in a mysterious fortress, where everyone around her feared her and left her in isolation. Her mother, The Lady, disappeared for weeks. Tarisai is sent to try out for the royal council with a terrible task. As Tar discovers more about herself and her capabilities, she gloriously comes into her birthright and legacy. The world building is phenomenal and intricately crafted and I can't wait for the next one!”

    Jackie Jou, Mysterious Galaxy Books (San Diego, CA)
