A former slave fighting for justice. A reclusive warrior who no longer believes it exists. And a dark magic that will entangle their fates.

Ripped from a forgotten homeland as a child, Tisaanah learned how to survive with nothing but a sharp wit and a touch of magic. But the night she tries to buy her freedom, she barely escapes with her life.

Desperate to save the best friend she left behind, Tisaanah journeys to the Orders, the most powerful organizations of magic Wielders in the world. But to join their ranks, she must complete an apprenticeship with Maxantarius Farlione, a handsome and reclusive fire wielder who despises the Orders.

The Orders's intentions are cryptic, and Tisaanah must prove herself under the threat of looming war. But even more dangerous are her growing feelings for Maxantarius. The bloody past he wants to forget may be the key to her future . . . or the downfall of them both.

But Tisaanah will stop at nothing to save those she abandoned. Even if it means gambling in the Orders's deadly games. Even if it means sacrificing her heart.

Even if it means wielding death itself.

Crystal's Thoughts:

Tisaanah offered herself to slavery to save her family in the midst of war. With her unique looks and magic, she's been able to live a good life...for a slave... But when she tries to buy back her freedom her illusions are shattered. Running for her life, Tisaanah barely makes it to the Order's doors, an organization of powerful magic wielders. But in taking her in, the Order wants something from her in return. She must fight for them, and they'll fight for her. First though, she must train with the reclusive Maxantarius, who wants nothing to do with her or the Order's scheming's. Can she convince hi to give her a chance without losing her heart to him and her soul to the Order?

"Men want power because it makes them feel good, women want power because it lets us do things."

While Daughter of No Worlds was a slow-moving tale, it was action packed with good world-building and unique characters. As a side note for narrators though, please stop whispering! I look forward to continuing this series and seeing where Tisaanah journeys next! 

"My name is Tisaanah. I am a free woman and yet still a slave. I am fragments of many things but a whole of only myself. I am a daughter of no worlds, and all worlds. And I am not done yet. "
