Defender of Histories: The Witness Tree Chronicles, Book 1

Silira Mór is the most promising young historian to serve the city-state of Iathium in centuries. Proud and headstrong, Lira has dedicated her life to her kingdom, working her way up the ranks in the archive--even capturing the attention of Iathium's young ruler, Eremon. But trouble is brewing amongst the outlying clans, and with it, a long-suppressed, forgotten history that threatens to decimate Lira's skillfully-crafted world. (Warning: Contains graphic depictions of violence.)
