The Red Country
by Sylvia Kelso
Introducing the princess, and the mage.
He doesn’t do well with people.
She's not so good at tact.
But he’s the wizard guardian of half a continent,
She rules a kingdom she must protect.
And to survive the inroads of a marauding empire,
The wild, harsh, fickle, fragile, beautiful desert of Hethria needs them both.
Some wars you just can't win alone.
