You’ll never look at harpies the same way again.
Azure first appears in the Amazon Bestselling title The Path of the Stone as a major side character, but her tale begins long before that, in Macedonia, in 341 BC, during her mortal days.
Bhava, Azure’s best friend, is marked to die. The scaffold is being prepared and the town’s female healers are lined up for execution. Soon, the authorities will be coming for Bhava, because she has healing powers and is therefore feared as a witch.
Unwilling to let this happen, Azure orchestrates a daring escape and saves Bhava’s life. Forced to leave town, they embark on a daring journey to Gaul where Bhava’s mother lives. The trip is not without its dangers, and as obstacles and attacks pile up, Azure quickly discovers that Bhava’s skills extend far beyond healing.
When they reach Gaul, the truth about Bhava is finally revealed.
Azure, having experienced Bhava’s unpleasant change, now witnesses her joining forces with her birth mother, Boudicca, a dark witch. Bhava’s final betrayal breaks their bond, forcing Azure to leave her forever, not knowing that her decision sets her on her own journey… which is only just beginning.
A village of harpies – Boudicca’s mortal enemies – awaits Azure, making her regret ever having saved Bhava’s life. Soon, all hell breaks loose, and Azure will have to go to extraordinary lengths to survive, traveling over faraway lands and even time.
