The Emperor's Raven
Book IV of The Aurora Chronicles
Devastated and on the brink of utter despair, Jia the Raven, one of the youngest assassins the Xun Clan of Blades has ever marked as one of their own, makes her way to the capital of Xu where she finds the imprisoned prince Izaki Min Kin and siblings.
Now, with the help of Tehyo the shapeshifter, Jia must clear the way for Izaki to take the thrown, risking her life and newfound moral high-ground. Even with the help of the all-powerful Aurora, Jia's path is fraught with danger and misery, culminating into a frantic race for the throne and a battle that could unhinge the very fabric of all three kingdoms.
