Fireborn, the first book in Katie MacAlister's Born Prophecy trilogy, introduces readers to the world of Alba. For generations, the seven lands of Alba have been locked in bitter conflict. The Fireborn and Starborn people have grown to hate the other, divided by their respective affiliations with the Sun and Moon. Deo is the peace-bringer prophesied to end this long-standing legacy of hate — but in the highly-anticipated sequel, Starborn, peace is far more complicated than the legends foretold. Starborn hits shelves December 10th, but Portalist readers can get a sneak peek now with our Born Prophecy sweepstakes! Five winners will take home one copy each of Fireborn and Starborn.

About the prizes:
Two magical kingdoms, three unlikely heroes, and a dangerous new threat converge in this fantasy series debut from the New York Times–bestselling author.
As the Starborn and Fireborn are locked in battle, three youths are about to learn the full meaning of their destinies. Allegria appears to be nothing more than a simple priestess devoted to the sun goddess. Hallow is an apprentice without a master. And Deo, the child of two monarchs, was prophesied to be the bringer of peace. But that was before the invaders came.
Besieging the land of the Starborn with chaos magic, the invaders break the prophecy. Now Allegria has fled the priesthood and wields the power of the sun. Hallow accepts the mantle of leadership he so long avoided. And Deo is tormented by the invaders’ power, using chaos itself to create an army that will drive them out. But before the peace of the Fourth Age can come, Allegria, Hallow, and Deo must learn to trust where there is suspicion, to believe where there is only doubt, and to fight when all hope is lost.
A Fireborn woman and a Starborn man embark on a desperate sea voyage to save two kingdoms in a rousing fantasy from the New York Times–bestselling author.
The battle for sovereignty among the seven lands of Alba has ended. The prophecy of Peace appears to have come true. But appearances can be deceptive. A new battle is brewing. Its outcome is dependent on the retrieval of a sacred triad of artifacts . . .
The hunt for the three precious moonstones begins. For Allegria, Fireborn lightweaver, and her Starborn lover, Hallow, it means saving more than worlds. It means rescuing their friend Deo, prisoner in the shadowlands of Eris, where the secrets of the moonstones are buried. Steering Allegria and Hallow in their ocean quest is a mysterious lifebound captain. And he’s setting sail with a warning: No mere mortal has ever survived the journey to Eris, let alone come back alive . . .
As the bonds of friendship are threatened and the courage of three heroes challenged, the fate of two kingdoms will be at risk as bestselling author Katie MacAlister’s breathtaking Born Prophesy saga continues.
