Are You Ready!

I am pleased to announce the newest release by author Alicia Wanstall-Burke!

What is it about?

Four years have passed since Lidan’s world was ripped apart, and time is running out to change her father’s mind about the succession before the bargain with her mother expires. Torn between what she wants and what she knows is right, she is faced with an impossible choice; will her brother live, or will he die?

Within the walls of the Hidden Keep, Ranoth holds his secrets close as he tries to harness his wild magic. But when life in the Keep descends into chaos, he is cast once more into the outside world, forced upon a southward path toward unknown lands and untold danger.

With Ran set on seeking justice and revenge, and Lidan fighting to find her feet and follow her heart, journeys will converge, and the ghosts of a past thought long dead will rise.


“Epic fantasy rarely feels this intimate. This close. This dangerous and thrilling.”
– John Birmingham, author of Weapons of Choice
“Complex protagonists, a stunningly realised world, an action-packed story and an extraordinary twist will have readers eager for more.”  
– Juliet Marillier, author of the Blackthorn & Grim series.
“Wanstall-Burke is one of the best fantasy authors writing today, hands down.” 
– Dyrk Ashton, author of the Paternus trilogy
“Wanstall-Burke demonstrates her shrewd talent for plotting, fusing together threads of physical and emotional confrontations with the fine touch of a knife’s edge.”
– Adam Weller, Fantasy Book Review
“Old, cold secrets emerge ferociously into explosive day-lit scrutiny.”
– TO Munro, The Fantasy Hive
“Unveiled rage, thrilling clan politics, factions trying to exact revenge, a convergence of storylines, and realistically stunning revelations“
– Petrik Leo, Novel Notions
