Lucy Hounsoms epic debut Starborn brings you a world of myths, mystery and awesome magic. And Doodled Books is proud to present an exclusive set of fabulous signed first editions that have been doodled by the author at her home in the UK.
In between writing fantasy novels, Lucy works as a bookseller for Waterstones. She has a BA in English & Creative Writing from the University of London and went on to complete the MA in Creative Writing in 2010. She lives by the sea in Devon with two cats (who are really dragons) and a bedroom full of stories. She loves long walks in the surf, cultivating a personal library and playing the piano. STARBORN is her début novel and the first book in the Worldmaker Trilogy.
It’s true to say with George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones now a huge TV success, fantasy fiction has never been more popular. And these books are traditional fantasy at its very best.
Evocative, original worldbuilding and a wonderfully feisty heroine: top marks to Lucy Hounsom (Karen Miller)

A brave heroine, a perilous destiny, and an intriguing world full of myth and mystery make for an enthralling read (Gail Z. Martin)

I thought it was great, reminding me of Trudi Canavan; it had me turning pages way into the night, which is not good at my age! What a mix: immersive worldbuilding, secret societies, a flawed and hugely likeable protagonist, and awesome magic. There's a lot to like here, but be warned, this book will seriously damage your sleep. (John Gwynne)

Death and destruction will bar her way. . .

Kyndra's fate holds betrayal and salvation, but the journey starts in her small village. On the day she comes of age, she accidentally disrupts an ancient ceremony, ending centuries of tradition. So when an unnatural storm targets her superstitious community, Kyndra is blamed. She fears for her life until two strangers save her, by wielding powers not seen for an age - powers fuelled by the sun and the moon.

Together, they flee to the hidden citadel of Naris. And here, Kyndra experiences disturbing visions of the past, showing war and one man's terrifying response. She'll learn more in the city's subterranean chambers, amongst fanatics and rebels. But first Kyndra will be brutally tested in a bid to unlock her own magic.

If she survives the ordeal, she'll discover a force greater than she could ever have imagined. But
could it create as well as destroy? And can she control it, to right an ancient wrong?
