Epic of Egaisha Book One
To her clan, she is nothing. She will use their contempt for change, and her strength for war.
Epic Japanese inspired progression fantasy for fans of Mistborn and The Poppy War.
Aiya is the black sheep of her clan. To protect her brothers and win her own freedom, she must oppose her blood, her empire, conspire with the families of clans once held in contempt and reach new heights of power to create a new world of their own, a world of spirits, deities and conniving lords. Along the way she will be forced to find her place, her morality and her strength.
"Twelve Blades in Contempt is a great debut novel. It's jammed full of well done fight scenes, and it has an interesting magic system and some cool world building. Fans of Cradle will probably enjoy it."

"I read Twelve Blades in Contempt in one sitting...it didn't seem right to leave it hanging when the story never stops with relentless violent encounters. Bloodshed, duelling, dishonor and death is guaranteed."
