The Burnt Mountain series consists of five books following Rio Kaiser as an early teen through early adulthood as she discovers another world full of danger and new friends that culminates in a final battle against the Emperor who is intent on destroying the only remaining city opposing his rule.
The Emperor’s army of Iamurri continue their relentless march toward Hyden while leaving destruction and bodies in their wake. Rio Kaiser must find a way to restore broken bonds between friends and family and end the war before she and her entire family are slaughtered by the Emperor’s determination to bathe what’s left of Rhyllia in blood and ashes.
Family plans change when Rio Kaiser decides that she should return to the hidden world of Rhyllia to help a city of strangers against an Emperor intent on destroying or enslaving the last of those to resist his reign.
