Katie MacAlister’s stunning Born Prophecy Series begins with this novel about an ancient world at war with itself, and the three unlikely heroes who must find a way to trust and hope enough in each other to put it back together. The third novel in the series, Shadowborn, hits shelves on June 9th, so now is the perfect time to dive into this unique realm.

When the land of Starborn is invaded and the ancient prophecy broken, the lives of Allegria, Hallow, and Deo are upended. 

Allegria fled the priesthood and now holds the power of the sun in her hands. Hallow has ascended to a role he was unprepared to take on; and Deo must harness the power of their enemies to try and restore peace. 

Together, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.
