Twelve Ways create a thousand tangled paths.
Hatched from an egg but unable to shift into dragon form, Jathen is a Moot among the Tazu. His rightful throne is forbidden him because of his transformative handicap, and neither his culture nor his religion offer acceptance of his supposed flaws. Driven by wounded anger, Jathen strikes out across the vast world beyond Tazu borders, desperate to find a place where he feels accepted and whole.
Though he travels with the most trusted of companions, sabotage and conspiracy soon strike his quest. Jathen and his allies must struggle against man and magic alike, at the mercy of forces beyond their ken.
As Jathen presses further from everything he once knew, his questions of belonging are surrounded by those of identity, loyalty, and betrayal. Where will the path of his destiny lead, and will he follow, or fall?
“You know the author has done a great job when you want to climb into a book and become a part of it. The scope of this novel is amazing – an entire imagined world filled with unusual races, each with a deliberately crafted history and culture.”
“J. Leigh paints a board canvass of emotions with her characters that make them easy to connect with; through adventure, joy and tragedy. You want Jathen to overcome everything that is thrown in his path and you feel the anguish he feels when there are missteps along the way.”
“The world that miss Leigh has crafted is a wonder to watch unfold. Both unique and familiar all at once. Her characters jump off the page with personality and life so rarely found in fantasy literature, creating a living, breathing universe that one can truly dive into, never knowing if there is an end to the depths to explore. Very good read, highly recommended. Can’t wait for the next one.”
