Quest of Shadow and Ruin

A thief. A bounty hunter. A journey to save their loved ones.

Andi swindles Folkway’s cruelest men for a living. When her best friend Eris goes missing, she vows to bring her back. Using only her wits, she traces Eris’s last whereabouts to the wealthy General Nox.

Apprehending Andi is Caden’s only hope of paying off his family’s debt to General Nox. But his plan goes awry when the wily criminal escapes. After Caden is kicked out of his bounty hunter faction, his best bet is to strike a deal with her. Their arrangement seems sweet and simple: he leads her to Nox; she pays off his debt. But nothing is ever as it seems.

As they embark on a journey through unfamiliar waters, forests infested with mysterious beasts, and a city full of lies, their time to confront Nox is trickling away. War is spilling into every land, and the secrets between the two travelers threaten to expose their true faces.

When every step is a struggle, can they make it to the general in time?

Or will they lose everyone they love?

Quest of Shadow and Ruin is the explosive YA epic fantasy adventure filled with danger, deceit, and desperation. It is the first installment of the Shadow and Ruin series.
