One Risk. One Chance.
Peace in the seven realms of Shangril: shattered. Nobility of the magiel race: broken. Lands of the High King’s opponents: usurped. And Heaven may no longer be attainable.
Meg and Janat Falkyn, fugitive daughters of an imperial magiel, escape to the edge of the world to take refuge with their youngest sister, Rennika. There, they may have the chance to fulfill their mother’s wish and restore their people’s access to their Gods–by recapturing a fabled prayer stone.
But to accomplish the theft, whom can they trust? The ambitious High King’s sister thirsts for power. A calculating regent enriches himself with a steam-driven textile monopoly. A charming swindler sets up an elaborate scheme. They soon find that unraveling secrets hidden in castles, alleyways, and brothels threaten to expose everything.
With rebels stalking the sisters, and the High King’s armies on the march, Meg’s time is up.
Flights of Marigold tells an epic tale of the addictions, survival, revenge, and redemption of three magiel sisters in an insignificant hinterland. Can they hold onto happiness, dreams, and sisterhood when desire becomes addiction?
