Rise of the Sparrows by Sarina Langer

Growing up homeless and orphaned in a town that hates her, Rachael must assassinate the king of Rifarne to become queen to a people who once wanted her dead.

Rifarne is a country opposed to magic. When its people demand harsh action, King Aeric sees himself with no other choice but to outlaw those with the gift. Rachael, who possesses the rare gift of a Seer, soon finds herself with visions of her own violent death. When her escape goes wrong and she ends up in the clutches of a vicious Mist Woman lusting for her blood, she finds she is the only person who can stop the war against people like her – and assassinating the king to take his throne may well be the only way to do just that.

Sarina is the author of the Relics of Ar’Zac trilogy. The first book in the series, Rise of the Sparrows, was released in late May 2016. She’s currently working on the sequel, a new fantasy series as well as her first sci-fi novel.

She’s obsessed with books and all things stationery, has a proud collection of over twenty notebooks, and squees every time she buys a new notebook, pen (hmmm, fountain pens <3 ) or highlighters.

In her free time she reads fantasy and sci-fi novels, plays video games and researches human sacrifice traditions and the end of the universe.

Her familiar, her Sellybean, has become a mascot to her and her writing, and is probably sitting on her notes/laptop/chewing her pen as you read this.
