This cover is the first thing that struck me as magnificent. And that was before I had read the description. I am definitely going to add this to my #mustread list 📚 ⭐️ 💯 ✍️
***SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 GEMMELL AWARD FOR BEST DEBUT***
The Tethered Mage by Melissa Caruso.
On the Cover.
In the Raverran Empire, magic is scarce and those born with power are strictly controlled – taken as children and conscripted into the Falcon Army.
Zaira has lived her life on the streets to avoid this fate, hiding her mage-mark and thieving to survive. But hers is a rare and dangerous magic, one that could threaten the entire empire.
Lady Amalia Cornaro was never meant to be a Falconer. Heiress and scholar, she was born into a treacherous world of political machinations. But fate has bound the heir and the mage. And as war looms on the horizon, a single spark could turn their city into a pyre.
