“One is an opportunity. Two is a threat. Three is an invasion.”
For hundreds of years, strange things have been washing up on the shores of Darcentaria. But when a young foreign woman named El is found unconscious on the beach amidst the burning wreckage of a strange metal craft, the villagers of Odessa are immediately suspicious—is she an agent of the Dalriadan Empire, their cruel oppressors for as long as they can remember? Or does she come from the Outside, the vast and legendary lands beyond their borders from which no man or woman alive has ever returned?
Torsten Eiselher, a talented young swordsman, has spent the last nine years of his life wrongfully imprisoned by his uncle, the Empire’s ruler. Betrayed and deceived at every turn, Torsten has survived by keeping a firm grip on his sword—and by staying well away from anything to do with the Outside. But when his young sister is murdered, Torsten finds himself irrevocably drawn to El despite her Outsider heritage—and he begins to question everything he has been told about her world.
Intrigued by the existence of a powerful and dangerously advanced world within his reach, the Empire’s ruler, Jurien Arminius, launches a hunt for El and the two Outsiders that arrived with her—the ones who could help him win his war against Torsten and the rebellion that threatens to topple his Empire.
Suddenly, Torsten is forced to choose between defeating his long-term enemy or saving the woman he has come to love . . .

Excerpt

That night, El was in his dreams again. He was lying on his bed at his
home in Marinus when she came to him, wearing a simple white dress that
floated around her body. When he reached out for her, she came to him freely.
But as soon as he took her hand, her figure dissolved and melted away.
He woke abruptly, his skin glistening with sweat, and looked over at
the others to see them sleeping soundly. His gaze settled on El, who lay on
her back, with her hand resting protectively over her arrow wound, deep in
the sleep of the exhausted. The moonlight filtering in through the window
danced on her unbound hair like marionettes. He had been so close to telling
her what he felt for her that night. But she had changed the topic—from what
united them to what divided them. Rather than dousing his ardor, it only
strengthened his attraction to her. He had never met anyone with a passion
that matched his. Or anyone who was so convinced at the inferiority of man.
In a world where everyone danced around him, Torsten Eiselher could
see the value of a woman who stepped on his toes.

Separated by Arminius but fighting to get back to each other, El and Torsten encounter unlikely allies that reveal stunning truths about each other, the Outside, and the very beginnings of Darcentaria itself.

She vows to one day write the perfect fight scene.
Jasmine makes her home near Sydney, Australia, where most animals want to kill you and drop bears enforce a daily reign of terror. If you’re reading this, please send help.
