A STOLEN CROWN. A HANDSOME PRINCE. A GIANT DISASTER. Perfect for fans of Throne of Glass, Falling Kingdoms, and Graceling.

Since childhood, Elena has lived inside the walls of the Pit, the filthy shantytown where the poor are forced to live out their lives as trash. But when she steals the Anglian crown, everything changes...

Elena is caught. And as punishment, she is forced to become the High priest’s champion in The Great Race. Catapulted into the bloodiest race in all the realms, she is forced to compete with a man she hates while she develops a growing passion for another. Along the way she must battle deadly creatures and demons, all the while struggling to understand her special skills and her mysterious healing powers that she must keep secret.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 07, 2016 – A young woman discovers long-hidden special abilities when the tyrannical priesthood that has conquered her people forces her to act as its champion in a once-every-century contest. Nineteen-year-old Elena is set up to steal a valuable item from the most secure vault in the land; betrayed and imprisoned, she agrees to participate in the Great Race, a winner-takes-all, no-rules quest to reclaim a powerful artifact. Even with Elena's her newfound power to heal from almost any wound, she can barely hold her own against the trained warriors and royalty of numerous lands. Caught in a love triangle between the noble Landon and the lowborn Mad Jack, she can't decide who to trust. While the premise is intriguing and Elena a capable heroine, the story rests on predictable tropes (including the familiar good boy/bad boy love triangle), transparent parallels to European regionalism, and a disturbing undercurrent of misogyny and sexual abuse in repeated threats of rape and torture employed by the priests. Instead of tension and atmosphere, this adventure, first in Richardson's Divided Realms series, barrels ahead without subtlety or nuance. Ages 12 up. (BookLife)
