July Indie Book of the Month - Legacy of the Empress (GIVEAWAY!)

This month, my pick is a book I have not read yet*, though I've read some of the author's other work and absolutely loved it. Legacy of the Empress is the debut novel for Rebecca Knight. It's only $.99 right now, and we're giving away three copies! Giveaway information is below.

Legacy of the EmpressA dark magic spreads through the kingdom of Taleria, feeding off its people. The queen is corrupted, seduced by its evil promise. Princess Astrid, held prisoner in the castle by her mother for years, discovers a book of magic, and uses its power to escape.

The only way to save Taleria is to free the Empress of legend who banished the same dark magic centuries before. Astrid doesn't know the first thing about being a hero, much less journeying to the Crystal Fortress where the old woman is imprisoned. She's never been outside her mother's grasp, and now the queen's spies are hot on her heels.

Beautiful creatures twisted into monsters, uncertain allies, and the deadly mystery of the book she possesses are the least of Astrid's concerns. As she faces the darkness before her, she discovers that saving the land she loves may ultimately mean watching it burn.

Rebecca Knight is a fantasy writer living in the Pacific Northwest, and a devout lover of all things geeky. Legacy of the Empress is her debut novel, but she also has several short stories published, including the Fairytale Assassin series on Amazon. For more info, check out her author page:
