Secrets of the Conclave (The World of Corinas Book 1)
A power passed down through generations.
A people hungry for freedom.
The time for change has come.
Since its founding, the matriarchal society of Corinas has existed under the oppressive rule of the Masters of the Conclave, who use powerful child Adepts to aid in their governance. Rebellions have come and gone, but none have managed to displace the Conclave’s iron-fisted control.
Now, a new group of rebels hopes to succeed where others have failed. Nyona, a former Adept who only wanted to live her life free of the Conclave, is unwillingly thrust into the rebellion’s efforts when she finds a forbidden book containing the secrets to controlling her daughter’s Ability. Together with Mathis, a Guardsman who joined the rebellion after his parents’ execution, Nyona will help the rebels destroy the Conclave’s power—or die trying.
