HER EMERALD THRONE
In a land ruined by war, seventeen-year-old Aurel Tritten knows the greatest casualties come the day the sky turns emerald. Every year, at the exact same time, mothers disappear from their homes, soldiers from their barracks and kings from their castles. She's been told since childhood the emerald sky takes people to a happier place, the City of El, where there are crystal palaces and colors brighter than a rainbow, but Aurel thinks there's an equally good chance they're dead.
When the sky shifts to green like it does every year, Aurel blinks and finds herself in El, a world immensely more beautiful than the stories—and more terrifying. For El is at war with monsters made of shadows that thirst for human memories. The people from Aurel's world are replacement soldiers, bestowed with the name, abilities and consciousness of one of El's fallen the moment they arrive.
Aurel's identified as Nissa, the once-revered Gold Sentinel and prime suspect behind the latest tragedy of war. The sentinel stands accused of opening the massive barrier protecting the city and letting in the monsters for a bloody feast. Aurel is imprisoned for Nissa's crimes. Her only escape is proving Nissa's innocence by remembering what really happened, but with each memory, Aurel drowns deeper in the other girl's life. If Aurel can't unlock the secrets in her mind and identify the true traitor, she’ll be the death of an entire world. If she does, and Nissa was truly wicked, she'll be the death of herself.
HER EMERALD THRONE is a young adult fantasy complete at XX,XXX words. I believe it will appeal to fans of the reincarnation and romance in Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy and the living darkness of Leigh Bardugo's Grisha world.
