The author of the acclaimed mystery The Unquiet Dead delivers her first fantasy novel--the opening installment in a thrilling quartet--a tale of religion, oppression, and political intrigue that radiates with heroism, wonder, and hope.

A dark power called the Talisman, born of ignorance and persecution, has risen in the land. Led by a man known only as the One-Eyed Preacher, it is a cruel and terrifying movement bent on world domination--a superstitious patriarchy that suppresses knowledge and subjugates women. And it is growing.

But there are those who fight the Talisman's spread, including the Companions of Hira, a diverse group of influential women whose power derives from the Claim--the magic inherent in the words of a sacred scripture. Foremost among them is Arian and her fellow warrior, Sinnia, skilled fighters who are knowledgeable in the Claim. This daring pair have long stalked Talisman slave-chains, searching for clues and weapons to help them battle their enemy's oppressive ways. Now they may have discovered a miraculous symbol of hope that can destroy the One-Eyed Preacher and his fervid followers: the Bloodprint, a dangerous text the Talisman has tried to erase from the world.

Finding the Bloodprint promises to be their most perilous undertaking yet, an arduous journey that will lead them deep into Talisman territory. Though they will be helped by allies--a loyal boy they freed from slavery and a man that used to be both Arian's confidant and sword master--Arian and Sinnia know that this mission may well be their last.

The Bloodprint is an amazing beginning to a complex and timely fantasy series. It's also fantastic to see such a strong female cast in a fantasy series, as well as a diversity one. Fans of this title may also want to check out this author's mystery series (especially if you're a Louise Penny fan).
