I am Valshara, the black stone born of fire. Break me, and my edges turn into knives.


Condemned to a slave camp for her crimes, goblin convict Valshara Sh'a makes a death-defying escape to freedom. But navigating Vindor's treacherous cavern system is only the beginning of her troubles. An encounter with a rogue king turns her world upside down, and a bargain with fairy tricksters leaves her with a human child she doesn't know how to care for.


As she tries to smuggle the boy through the walls of a barricaded city, Valshara can't let down her guard. Because somewhere in the darkness behind her, a bounty hunter rises-relentless as nightfall and merciless as death itself.


Emily Golus re-imagines Victor Hugo's beloved Les Mis rables as an epic fantasy adventure about suffering, redemption, and the extraordinary power of love.


--

This clean fantasy adventure is set within the richly detailed world of Vindor and features a subterranean civilization, a Celtic fairy forest, and a West African-inspired empire. Read it on its own, or binge the entire A Classic Retold series for more uplifting and magical retellings of classical literature.
