Welcome to the world of the Kingmaker Chronicles! It’s a place where the meeting of eyes across a crowded space can shape the course of lives and change the destiny of kingdoms. In the icy north, where magic is might, capricious royals rule with cold hearts and iron fists. In the dusty, magic-deprived south, muscle and cunning decide who lives or dies. In A Promise of Fire, the two cultures collide in the form of Cat and Griffin, a smart-mouthed soothsayer and a determined warlord. Their explosive first meeting leads to danger, intrigue, magic, monsters and soul-stirring romance. With Gods dabbling in the lives of men, beasts roaming the land, and nations ripe for a takeover, it’s a dangerous time to be the Kingmaker – the most coveted diplomatic weapon in the realms. Cat and Griffin’s not-so-chance encounter kicks off a romantic adventure of epic proportions, one where Cat must decide what – and who – is worth fighting, and even dying, for. Beware: Here be Dragons.
Five rules to surviving in the world of the Kingmaker
The Gods can be trusted – usually.
If you think an adversary has more magic than you do, bluff like there’s no tomorrow – there might not be.
Don’t play with knives – use them.
Decapitation is the surest way to kill just about anything – even a God.
Consider everyone an enemy – they probably are.

In a land where magic is might, Catalia Fisa is the mightiest of them all . . .
Catalia Fisa, Lost Princess, has been running from destiny her whole life. Yet deep down, she has always believed that the prophecy shadowing her every step is inescapable: her unimaginable power will bring unfathomable disaster.
But now her newfound loved ones are caught between the shadow of Cat's tortured past and the threat of her world-shattering future. Although it may be that this, even with all her power, is still the one battle she cannot win, Cat's determined not to go down without a fight.
As the realms descend into all-out war, Cat knows she must embrace the power at her command. With Griffin by her side and Gods willing, perhaps she can emerge victorious in this fiery forging of a new Kingdom.
