Adult Historical Fiction - Fabulist - Upmarket
This is the story of the battle against oblivion. It begins with a girl, long ago.
Jerusalem, 978 BCE
A reckless princess and surly warrior-scribe must secure their nation's legacy in a world bursting with rebellions and betrayals.
She’s a royal of Ancient Israel, navigating love and belonging. She’s a scribe shepherding the Israelite canon, and she’s a warrior igniting a wildfire of journeys and quests. But she’s also just a woman who, like the rest of us, braves shattered expectations.
This is Adira’s story: of searching for home, sifting through the mists of ancestors, touching the texture of her land. A story of survival. Will her tribe endure? Will their tales have a legacy? Or will all collapse into dust, meaningless?
Welcome to the mythic world of the ancients. Let’s go on an adventure.
