In A Garden Burning Gold: Book One of the Wind Up Garden Series by Rory Power
Paperback – Del Rey – Jan 2023 – 424 pages
Rhea and Lexos were born into a family unlike any other. Along with their siblings, they control the seasons, the tides, and the stars, and help their father oversee their kingdom. Thanks to their magic, the family has ruled for an eternity, and plans to rule for an eternity more.
But Rhea and Lexos are special: They’re twins, bonded down to the bone, and for the past hundred years, that bond has protected them from their father as he has become an unpredictable tyrant–and as his worsening temper threatens the family’s grip on power.
Now, with rival nations ready to attack and a rebel movement within their own borders, Rhea and Lexos must fight to keep the kingdom–and the family–together, even as treachery, deceit, and drama threaten to strand the twins on opposite sides of the battlefield.
