DARKWIND - THE STARCHASER SAGA #I
WHEN DANGER THREATENS, A PRINCESS WILL RISE TO THE CHALLENGE.
The Middle Kingdom has enjoyed peace for decades. But with the threat of war rising from the ruthless South, the dream of a quiet life is fading. And for the noble but naïve Princess Cistine, that means embarking on a dangerous quest to the Northern Kingdom, where she hopes to forge an alliance against their southern foes and save her people.
But when Cistine is captured by an outlaw and his band of cutthroat warriors, she finds a more deadly adventure than she bargained for - and a greater power within herself than she ever knew. Swept up in the unpredictable tide of a tenuous and shadowy political climate, a ruthless land governed by the stars, and the unexpected revelations that come from her mysterious new companions, Cistine must learn how to fight, how to lead...and above all, how to trust herself.
If the young princess can't be forged into a fighter, her kingdom will fall.

ABOUT THE STARCHASER SAGA
PRAISE FOR DARKWIND:
"This is the epic fantasy I have been waiting for!! The characters were diverse and complex. The world was lush and realistic. The conflict was thick and believable. The prose was absolutely beautiful!"
"On a whim, I decided to try this book out. To be honest, I was expecting a run-of-the-mill story that was nice, but it wouldn't leave an impression. Oh. My. Stars. I was so wrong. The first pages sucked me in, and I was a goner."
"Darkwind is for every reader looking for adventure, intrigue, romance, friendship, and a world unlike any other, where ruthless bandits can also be true friends. Renee created an intricate and fascinating tapestry in Darkwind, one that I plan to revisit frequently."
PRAISE FOR DAWNSTAR
"THIS BOOK is a whirlwind of magical emotions, both joyful wonders and pits of despair. [...] Every character has a purpose, a fate, something relatable that makes them important and special not just to the story, but to YOU."
"[This book] has absolutely everything you would want in a sequel and more. There is heart-pumping action, slow burning romance that makes you want to drool, a found family you wish you could join, and bonds that are forged through fire and completely unbreakable."
"The best part of this book is the large cast of complex, well-rounded, beautifully flawed characters. I am a sucker for a good found family story, and while that was present in book one, it is elevated in Dawnstar."
PRAISE FOR NIGHTWING:
"The characters, the world building, the magic, it’s all crafted into this story perfectly and it’s told through the eyes of different perspectives which I’ve always been drawn to. Dugan continues to craft complex characters in high stakes situations that helps them really step into who they’re meant to be."
"This action-filled novel, set in a high-fantasy world has everything you crave: romance, magic, adventure, and heart-pounding twists and turns. Great series for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Mary E. Peterson's, "The Remnant Chronicles."."
"Magical, emotional, and heart stopping, Nightwing is the perfect third installment to the Starchaser Saga. It’s well worth a read, and maybe a reread."
