Set in a world inspired by medieval India, THE WRATH OF AMBAR duology tells of a girl with a star-shaped birthmark who is prophesied to be the downfall of a tyrant king, the warrior women who come to her aid, and the boy she falls in love with.
Gul’s star-shaped birthmark led to her parents’ murder and forced her into hiding. Now, all she wants is revenge on the king that killed her family. She is trained in warrior magic by the Sisters of the Golden Lotus, a group of rebel women who take her in. Then she meets Cavas, a poor boy ready to sign his life over to the king’s army, and sparks start flying—and Cavas discovers magic that he never expected to find. The bond between them, and the magic they realize, may be the only way to overcome their kingdom’s tyrannical rule.
