A woman torn between honor and survival...
Raised in a realm where humans are no better than slaves, Rie Lhethannien has struggled for decades to earn a meager post in the High Court messenger service. Even training as an elite fighter isn't enough to earn the respect she craves. Scorned by the high elves who rely on her loyalty, Rie's closest allies are the fierce carnivorous pixies who travel by her side.
When she's attacked on a routine delivery by assassins from the enemy Shadow Realm, Rie's martial prowess keeps her alive...and frames her as a traitor. Facing execution at the hand of an unmerciful high elf king, Rie must forsake her oaths and flee into enemy lands to prove her innocence. The secrets she uncovers may threaten more than her honor or even her life...for war is looming in the nine faerie realms.
Sanyare: The Last Descendant is the first book in The Sanyare Chronicles, a fast-paced dark fantasy adventure. If you like kick-butt heroines and action-packed fantasy filled with mythological creatures, then you'll love the first novel in Megan Haskell's debut series.

About the Author
Legend has it, I was born with a book in my hands. When I was a kid, my mom would ground me from reading in order to get me to do my chores. To this day, I can readily ignore the real world in favor of the imaginary one lurking between the pages of my current addiction. My dad - also an avid reader - introduced me to Tolkien in my late elementary years, and I never looked back. I love escaping to worlds where magic and monsters are real, especially stories with kick-butt heroines and dangerously attractive heroes. Despite my voracious book appetite, I didn't start creative writing until I was working as a number cruncher in a big accounting firm. With an hour commute by train every day, and a demanding left-brain occupation, I needed a mobile creative outlet. A pen and paper are about as mobile as it gets! As the pages filled, I moved onto a tiny laptop, and a writer was born. Now I create my own fantasies! I currently live in Southern California with my wonderfully supportive husband, two daughters, and a ridiculously energetic dog.
