The Faoii have protected Clearwall for generations. With militaristic order and stalwart discipline, these women have reigned in prosperity. But when her monastery is attacked and her sisters slaughtered, only young Kaiya-faoii is left alive.
Forced to cope without the long-standing traditions of her Order, Kaiya travels the country on a mission to avenge her sisters and preserve what is left of her heritage. The search brings her not only to dark discoveries and ancient family secrets, but to something she never wanted or dreamed of: a brother she never knew she had.
Thrust into a war at the heart of a broken empire, the siblings must evaluate the true meanings of enemy, betrayal, and freedom – and the gray areas surrounding each. Kaiya slowly learns the true state of the world outside her monastery’s walls, the dangers of the poisonous army that is slowly covering the land, and of her own innate abilities gifted by the Goddess.
Available in Paperback, Digital, and Audiobook!
Tahani Nelson's Other Published Works
I’ve loved reading for as long as I can remember, but my younger self always thought that something was missing from the novels I devoured day after day. It was several years before I realized what I was missing: Female leads who were strong and powerful and more than just someone to be saved or wooed. I wanted stories where my heroines had bigger goals than just marriage, and who wore suits of armor that actually covered all of their body parts. Eventually, when I couldn’t find nearly enough, I decided to create my own. These stories are for everyone but are specifically made for all the girls and women out there who crave better representation of women warriors. Shields up.
FAOII BETRAYER is the much-anticipated sequel to THE LAST FAOII. Follow Ilahna as she seeks to redeem Clearwall in the wake of the Godfell War. Coming Summer 2020.
About Tahani Nelson
I’ve always loved reading, and I don’t think anyone was surprised when I started channeling that love into creating my own stories filled with strong women wielding swords and shields.
When I’m not building new worlds and characters, I enjoy teaching high school English and dressing up in armor with my husband for Ren Faires and Cons.
