There are messages told through language.
There are messages told through symbols.
And there are messages told through terror.
Nabii Akachi, a young Moorish royal, unveils a series of cryptic messages and discover her dreams are linked to an ages-old mystical prophecy with global implications.
The Twelve Realms is a historical reimagining that links kings and paupers, priests and soldiers, and shaman and witches in an epic adventure. Nabii is the key within a tapestry of intertwined people from Western Africa to the Far East and the British Isles who must join forces and find a weapon that will defeat the shadows prophesied to rise from the deep.
