Duration: 17 hours 17 minutes
The first novel in the Book of Deacon series tells the tale of Myranda Celeste, a young woman orphaned by a century-long war. Her discovery of a fallen soldier's priceless cargo leads her on a magical journey like no other.
Myranda Celeste is a young woman more interested in staying alive than being a hero. Orphaned by a continent-spanning war that has gone on for decades too long and shunned for failing to support it, she has been on the move since she was only a child. One can hardly blame her when she thinks that the chance discovery of a fallen soldier's priceless cargo is the moment that will change her life. No one could predict just how great that change would be. It will lead her through an adventure of rebels and generals, of wizards and warriors, and of beasts both noble and monstrous. Each step of the way will take her closer to the truth of her potential, of the war, and of the fate of her world.
