Introducing the princess and the mage.
He doesn’t do well with people. She isn’t so good with tact. But to survive an imperial invasion the wild, beautiful, fragile desert of Hethria will need them both.
She knows about tactics. He understands reality. They both love Hethria. But what if, to save something you love, you have to change yourself?
Some wars you just can’t win alone.

The Red Country is the third book in the Chronicles of Rihannar, successor to Everrran’s Bane and The Moving Water, praised by reviewers for the depth of their world-building and attractive characters. In this vividly realised high fantasy, love and magic are tested to the utmost in the struggle for a land whose spell, once experienced, is impossible to escape.
