Born into slavery, bound by Fate, and forbidden to love. One faerie will do anything to be free.
It's not easy being a child of chaos. Disaster follows Isiilde wherever she goes, but that's the least of her problems—she's a faerie trapped in a realm of humans. And worse yet, she's a nymph.
Destined to be sold when she comes of age, Isiilde breaks into the vault of a powerful immortal to steal coin for her escape. But, instead of finding treasure, she (accidentally) releases a fiend into the realm.
As penance for her crime, the immortal tasks her with capturing the fiend. Only events quickly spiral out of control amid political scheming, power-hungry madmen, and three kingdoms bidding for her ownership.
One lone nymph stands at the center of destruction, with her heart bound to a man as mysterious as her strange affinity with fire. Isiilde is far more than she seems. And so is the man who wins her heart.
Fate doesn't stand a chance against a chaotic fire nymph.
A character-driven high fantasy novel with coming-of-age themes, pyromaniac faerie, and friends-to-lovers tropes.
