Shortlisted for the 2016 David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut A tale of heroism and lost powers, where one person's choices will shape the fate of thousands. Death and destruction will bar her way ... Kyndra's fate holds betrayal and salvation, but the journey starts in her small village. On the day she comes of age, she accidentally disrupts an ancient ceremony, ending centuries of tradition. So when an unnatural storm targets her superstitious community, Kyndra is blamed. She fears for her life until two strangers save her, by wielding powers not seen for an age - powers fuelled by the sun and the moon. Together, they flee to the hidden citadel of Naris. And here, Kyndra experiences disturbing visions of the past, showing war and one man's terrifying response. She'll learn more in the city's subterranean chambers, amongst fanatics and rebels. But first Kyndra will be brutally tested in a bid to unlock her own magic. If she survives the ordeal, she'll discover a force greater than she could ever have imagined. But could it create as well as destroy? And can she control it, to right an ancient wrong? PRAISE FOR STARBORN "Evocative, original worldbuilding and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom" Karen Miller "A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read" Gail Z. Martin "Has all the elements to become a modern classic of the genre. It's essentially a coming-of-age story that breaks out into a wide-screen fantasy extravaganza with huge stakes" Independent on Sunday "For those readers with a yearning for a novel with a Trudi Canavan/David Eddings type vibe, but with a contemporary twist, Starborn may be just the ticket" SFFWorld "An exciting new high fantasy story" SFBook "A genuinely impressive debut, and Lucy Hounsom is definitely one to watch" TheBookbag
