Dark Crowns meets Wicked Saints in this queer #ownvoices retelling
of “The Firebird,” a Russian folktale, by debut author Alexandra Overy.
When twin heirs are born in Tourin, their fates are decided at a young age. While Izaveta remained at court to learn the skills she’d need as the future queen, Asya was taken away to train with her aunt, the mysterious Firebird, who ensured magic remained balanced in the realm.
But before Asya’s training is completed, the ancient power blooms inside her, which can mean only one thing: the queen is dead, and a new ruler must be crowned.
As the princesses come to understand everything their roles entail, they’ll discover who they can trust, who they can love—and who killed their mother.
OVERY was born in London,
England. Ever since she was little she has loved being able to escape into
another world through books. She currently lives in Los Angeles, and is
completing her MFA in Screenwriting at UCLA. When she's not working on a new
manuscript or procrastinating on doing homework, she can be found obsessing
over Netflix shows, or eating all the ice cream she can.
