The Ruptured Sky by Jessica A. McMinn (Gardens of War & Wasteland, #1) Publication date: April 4th 2023 Genres: Adult, Dark Fantasy, Fantasy Synopsis:

A dead goddess. A broken sky. A world wasted by magic. Princess Amikharlia wants one thing in life: control of her own fate. On the eve of her wedding, Amika flees her homeland, seeking the truth behind the mysterious magical abilities she’d kept hidden since childhood. Taking up the life of a demon huntress, Amika uncovers a madman’s prophecy that would have her revive an ancient goddess—and destroy the world in the process. Will Amika become a pawn in another man’s game or continue her fight against destiny’s shackles? As a dark and dangerous power begins to rise, she must make her choice soon. But is laying the world to waste truly the way to save it? The Ruptured Sky is the gritty first installment of the dark fantasy quartet, Gardens of War & Wasteland—an epic adventure that blurs the lines between good and evil with a diverse cast of morally grey characters, perfect for fans of Anna Stephens, Mark Lawrence and Robin Hobb.
