The Emperor's Daughter
L iora Tanir is pulled from her comfortable life of silk sheets and fencing lessons when one of her dozens of siblings reports her as a witch to the emperor’s anti-magic police force, the Nomiya. Fleeing the palace with her faithful servant, Liora discovers that there is more to her past than she was aware of. With the help of her newfound uncle, Liora leaves the capital city only to discover that a plot to kill her father and frame her brother, the Crown Prince Eamon, successfully swept through the palace as she was fleeing. With her servant missing and her uncle dead in a raid by the Nomiya, it is up to Liora to return to the palace wielding her mother’s magic to free her brother and stop the conspiracy.
