Bound by Scars & Secrets (Realms of Magic #1)
Expected Publications Date: August 16, 2023
Genre: YA Fantasy Romance/ LGBTQ2+
He’s a mage who charms. She’s a sorceress who kills. Raised to fear magic, Alathea hates them both—especially when they become her only chance to find her missing sister.
17-year-old Alathea has kept her sister safe and the forbidden magic in her veins controlled ever since their mothers fled. But when Alathea’s sister disappears, a mage with a glowing spear outs her magic. On the run, Alathea receives an impossible offer from the mage: He and the sorceress will deliver Alathea to her sister if she crosses to his monster-reigned realm and accepts a magic destiny herself.
To get her sister back, Alathea will have to decide: Can she stop hiding and trust the enemies she hates…or will her animosity burn into something else entirely?
A queer Throne of Glass meets The Witcher, Bound by Scars & Secrets is the first book in a new YA fantasy series from Sienna Archer with a slow-burn queer love triangle, realm-crossing adventure, and unraveling family secrets.
“I need to learn how to control my magic.”
“I know just the someone who can help with that,” Soli says.
“I am certain that Lidja doesn’t want to spend more time with me today.”
“Interesting.” Soli’s smile is back, sly. “But I wasn’t talking about Lidja. I was talking about Dae.”
I fight the urge to duck under the blanket.
“Things are different here, Ala. No one is going to care who you like, or who you kiss. You don’t have to hide how you feel about someone.”
“Who says I’m feeling anything for anyone?”
Soli’s grin grows. “Daesen says Lidja is all blade and bite, like the edge of autumn as it cuts into winter.”
“And Dae himself?”
“Lidja says he’s butter and corn. Like the steamiest, hottest day of summer.”
A laugh slips from my lips, surprising us both.
Soli folds her leg beneath her, eyes sparkling. “Do you like one of them? It’s all right if you do.”
“Lidja hates me. Dae…” I pick at the bedsheet. “Dae flirts with rocks.”
“And they probably flirt right back. But how do you feel?”
“I don’t know.”
She tugs me upward, away from the bed, toward the wardrobe. Shirts and breeches fly from her fingers to the floor. Daesen’s clothes, although some are clearly too narrow and short for his broad, tall frame. Why are there such small clothes in his room?
Soli picks up a black blouse from the back with matching black breeches and holds the color against me. “Very Lidja. Do you think it suits you?”
