In the beginning, everyone died.
Sanciond is the magic capital of the North and home of the sorcerers watching over the country of Ar’Sanciond. With a library covering every subject imaginable, only one line of research is forbidden:
The study of the Mists, cradle of all evil where no light can dwell.
Sorcerer Eldon is granted permission to lead pioneering research into the Mists, but what he finds there—and what he unleashes—threatens the very fabric of Ar’Sanciond.
Seer Mavis, Sorcerer Vail, and Head Sorcerer Felan are the only ones who notice their friend’s changed energy. Only quick covert action can save Sanciond…
… But not all plans are meant to succeed, and not every story has a happy ending.
From Goodreads review:
‘If you are a Brandon Sanderson fan, then Langer is a writer of high fantasy who you should enjoy with layers of world building and indepth backstory.’
Coming January 24th:
An orphaned seer who dreams of death…
A girl who calls fire with a wish…
A group of resistance fighters who need the king to die…
A dragon whose secrets could save the world…
And the darkest shadow, free after centuries of prison.
Prophecy has brought them together, but who will it destroy?
The Relics of Ar’Zac box set includes all three novels (Rise of the Sparrows, Wardens of Archos, and Blood of the Dragon) as well as the prequel novella, Shadow in Ar’Sanciond.

Sarina Langer is the author of the Relics of Ar’Zac trilogy. Her debut novel, Rise of the Sparrows, was released in late May 2016. Its conclusion, Blood of the Dragon, is due to be published later this year.
She’s as obsessed with books and stationery now as she was as a child, when she drowned her box of colour pencils in water so they wouldn’t die and scribbled her first stories on corridor walls.
(‘A first sign of things to come’, according to her mother. ‘Normal toddler behaviour’, according to Sarina.)
In her free time she reads whatever her tbr jar coughs up next, plays video games, and researches the darker side of humanity and the end of the universe.
She has a weakness for books on writing and pretty words. (Specificity, anyone? Or perhaps nebulous?)
Sarina lives with her partner and daughter (read: their cat) in the south of England.
Besides writing, Sarina Langer is also a fiction editor and self-publishing coach.
