Plague has come to the continent of Teringia.
As the Wrack makes its slow, relentless march southwards, it will humble kings and healers, seers and merchants, priests and warriors. Behind, it leaves only screams and suffering, and before it, spreads only fear.
Lothain, the birthplace of the Wrack, desperately tries to hold itself together as the plague burns across it and its neighbors circle like vultures. The Moonsworn healers would fight the Wrack, but must navigate distrust and violence from the peoples of Teringia. Proud Galicanta readies itself for war, as the Sunsworn Empire watches and waits for the Wrack to bring its rival low.
And the Wrack advances, utterly unconcerned with the plans of men.
“Bierce’s knack for worldbuilding and realism crafts a remarkable, fascinating story with a terrifying illness at its core. The Wrack is heartwarming, clever, and horrific in equal measure, and it’s like nothing I’ve read before.”
⏤ Travis M. Riddle, author of Balam, Spring
“The Wrack is brutal, fascinating, relentless. The realities of plague have often been shunted to the boundaries of fantasy, but here they’re unveiled in all their awful glory.”
⏤ Sarah Lin, author of The Brightest Shadow
“The Wrack is one of those rare fantasy books that remains in your thoughts long after you’ve finished the last page, that send chills down your spine as you read it and calls to you every time you set it down. It is a sobering reminder that even in worlds rich in magic, the ordinary can still be terrifying, and that not all problems can be solved by the swing of a sword.”
⏤ F. James Blair, author of Bulletproof Witch
