Summary

The first book in the instant New York Times bestselling series, the Empirium Trilogy!

Furyborn is an epic YA fantasy about two fiercely independent young women, centuries apart, who hold the power to save their world...or doom it.

When assassins ambush her best friend, Rielle Dardenne risks everything to save him, exposing herself as one of a pair of prophesied queens: a queen of light, and one of blood. To prove she is the Sun Queen, Rielle must endure seven elemental magic trials. If she fails, she will be executed as the Blood Queen...unless the trials kill the queen first.

One thousand years later, the legend of Queen Rielle is a fairy tale to Eliana Ferracora. A bounty hunter for the Undying Empire, Eliana believes herself untouchable-until her mother vanishes. To find her, Eliana joins a rebel captain and discovers that the evil at the empire's heart is more terrible than she ever imagined.

As Rielle and Eliana fight in a cosmic war that spans millennia, their stories intersect, and the shocking connections between them ultimately determine the fate of their world-and of each other.

Perfect for:
Epic fantasy and dark fantasy YA readers
Fans of To Kill A Kingdom and Ash Princess
Lovers of dual POVs and epic world building
Those who enjoy fiction about strong girls and women

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Sun Queen Rielle was both savior and scourge, but her dying act was pure love: saving her only child from discovery by an ancient enemy, the angel Corien. As Eliana grows up among ordinary people, she notices differences in herself but has no explanation for them until she becomes part of the rebellion against the Undying Empire. There she meets Simon, who is strange and yet somehow familiar to her, and who is bent on saving her life at all costs. Intertwined stories of mother and daughter, told in alternating high-octane chapters, tease readers to discover which woman is truly the Sun Queen who will save the world and the Blood Queen, who will end it. Legrand excels at world building, deftly integrating the religion and history of this imaginary world into a dark yet rousing adventure story that combines passion and danger at every turn. Juxtaposing the mother's past with the daughter's present provides a unique way to get to know memorable characters. A world map and a chart of the elemental (religious) temples are included.--Welch, Cindy Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This fantasy trilogy opener from Legrand (Foxheart) introduces teenagers Rielle Dardenne, a Celdarian, and Eliana Ferracora, a Venteran. Many Celdarians are able to magically control a single element, but Rielle can secretly manipulate all seven. According to legend, this means she is either the Sun Queen, who can save the world, or the Blood Queen, who can destroy it. When Rielle reveals her talent by single-handedly saving the crown prince from invaders, the king imposes a series of deadly trials designed to test her strength and prove her loyalty. A millennium later and a continent away, assassin Eliana ponders the source of her preternatural healing abilities while hunting insurgents for the Empire. When her mother vanishes, Eliana offers tactical assistance in exchange for information, thus altering the course of her future. Action and steamy romance abound, but character development takes a back seat to worldbuilding and an excessively complicated mythology. Legrand cleverly intertwines her protagonists' seemingly discrete storylines, which unfold in alternating chapters, but her plot is overstuffed; a conclusion lacking resolution or closure will leave invested readers eager for the next installment.
