The Wolf Of Estare: Ascension
Rain Aaren. Reckless. Defiant. Godless.
After the murder of her mother, Rain's father leaves her to the care of Tyran Michaelis, the headmaster of the revered Ormr Academy. Her affinity for swordplay grants her full access to the school where she is the first and only girl to ever gain admittance. Not all approve.
To the residents of the high-walled city Aurelius, she is naught but a perversion. She dresses like a man, fights better than one, and bows to no master but herself. No one is capable of taming her wild spirit - that is, until she discovers the truth of her parentage and involvement with a dead rebellion, all the while fighting the call of a lone wolf from the other side of the wall.
Within the twisted alleys and rooftops of the city Rain discovers corruption, love, and death. Any innocence she had is devoured whole - once and for all.
This is a lesbian-lead low fantasy novel that will be the first of many more to come.
