Brenorra Warring thought she and her father were leaving to start over. She never imagined they were running for their lives.
In the aftermath of a fire that devastated their shipping business and gutted their townhouse, her father insists that they relocate to the Coalition Colonial Region, and will not change his mind for love nor begging.
But nothing is as it seems. Tragedy stalks them. Their ship goes down en route to the Colonies, her father disappears, and Bren discovers that he has been hiding something. Something that someone powerful will do anything to keep hidden. Something that she is now a part of, whether she wants to be or not: a secret that casts a deep shadow over everything and everyone Bren holds dear. Bren must learn just how far she is willing to go - and how much she is willing to give up - to drag that secret into the light.
Set in a gorgeously imagined alternate world, with gritty action and fast-paced adventure, Shadow Road is a must-read for those who take their sword-fights with a dash of political conspiracy, their naval battles with a drop of grit, and their romance with a touch of tension.
