From international bestselling author, K.N. Lee comes Rise of the Flame, an epic beginning to the Eura Chronicles.
Six races. Four realms. One human girl who can bring them together in peace... or war.
Lilae has been hunted since the night of her birth, for she is heir to a god’s throne. But everything that her surrogate family has done to protect her may have been for nothing. After Lilae is stripped of her powers and enslaved by the emperor of the Mithrani, she finds herself desperate to survive in a strange new world.
On the other side of the world, Liam leads his army across the realm to protect the Tryans and the fairies from those who would do them harm. But when their odds of survival become next to impossible, he must set out on a journey to find a dragon, a child, and the blessing of a fallen god to aid him in the inevitable realm war.
The path forward for both Liam and Lilae seems clear, until their dreamscapes collide. But while they draw strength from their connection, Lilae may be falling for the emperor who should be her greatest enemy.

Lilae has been running all her life. Since the moment she was born a dark and mysterious force has been chasing her in order to destroy her and what she might represent. She is heir to a god's throne and she is not an ordinary human. She has power deep inside of her.
One day Lilae is captured by the emperor of the Mithrani and stripped of her powers... She will have to learn to live without the amazing advantage they always gave her.
At the same time, on the opposite side of the world, Liam, the prince of the Tryans, leads his army across his realm in order to protect his people against an old threat: the dark elves. The odds of victory and survival are very low but he finds the strength to keep going, step by step.
Liam and Lilae must find each other so they can fight the approaching darkness together but Lilae may be falling for the emperor and Liam finds himself in trouble. They must go on and do everything possible to save the world... They're its last hope.
At first, I was a little reluctant in reading this book but I have to admit that, once I was able to get into the story, I really enjoyed it. Supernatural and otherworldly stories are always the most fun to read. With so many different and detailed elements this was a beautifully written book.
When we look at female heroes in Young Adult books, we can sometimes see that they all look a little alike. What makes Lilae different is that she not only has flaws but she also succumbs to them. She lets herself be blinded by emotion and things she doesn't understand. At the same time, she is athletic and smart and makes you want to be a little like her.
This book uncovers the beginning of a magical and dangerous adventure that is certain to make your heart beat faster and your ideas swim around in your head. With some almost ethereal moments within it leads you in directions you're not consciously going but that is gloriously beautiful.
A great story for all fantasy lovers and anyone who wants to give a different tale a chance.
