The Waterborn

(The first book in the Children of the Changeling series)
A novel by

British Fantasy Society Best Novel (nominee)
The River flowed through all the land, deep and unstoppable, a god in his own right.

Hezhi was an imperial princess; her blood carried the seeds of the River's power. When her favorite cousin disappeared, Hezhi searched throughout the sumptuous palace with its ghosts and priests, giants and courtiers, and frightening creatures of wizardry. And the magic within her began to grow; soon it must attract dangerous attention. Hezhi's anxious quest ripened into a desperate fight for her own life--a battle she could not hope to win alone.

And far away, a hero's journey began...
