The Priestess Trials
by AA Lee
Famine. Slavery. War. Survival.
When hunger strikes her village, Tala, a war orphan, thought marriage was her ticket out of slavery. But her strategic move only leads to desperation. She’s forced to run from her fiancé to escape the same fate as his three previous wives, who died at his hands.
The Priestess Trials may provide the cover she needs to prevent her disastrous marriage, but it’s even harder than she thought it would be. Her competitors are years ahead of her in skill and social class. Her dark skin and short hair mark her as a slave, and that makes her the target of their ire.
Will she endure their cruelty to save her life and become a priestess, or will she abandon her plans altogether and spend the rest of her life in dire straits?
The Priestess Trials will delight fans of The Poppy War and An Ember in the Ashes.
