The Borderlands: War
YA Contemporary Fantasy
‘The saviour shall have fire for hair and emeralds for eyes – her heart knows both goodness and evil.’
The prophecy predicted Dale to be the saviour. It's what everyone believed. But after a year of training, even a basic illumination spell proves impossible most of the time. How is she supposed to defeat the dark sorcerer and thwart the Unseelie horde that masses on the Arcadia border, bringing war to their doorstep?
The Seelie queen still has faith in her daughter – the fraught faith of one who believes in prophecies. But the belief has died in those left in Arcadia, and each day Dale is reminded by the fading hope in their eyes.
Desperate to halt the destruction of her new world, and despite her flawed sorcery, Dale heeds the strange whispers in her dreams and embarks upon a dangerous and secret quest in an attempt to fulfill her part in the prophecy.
If successful, Dale could be their saviour after all...
Follow Dale's struggle to overcome grief, self-doubt, fragile friendships and mystifying romance as she attempts to discover her purpose and help save the Borderlands from destruction.
