Lady Amalia Cornaro only snuck out of the palace to buy a book and put off a little longer her duties as heir to the Cornaro family. Zaira was only trying to elude the clutches of anyone who wanted to put her mage power over balefire to their own use. Neither expected to end the day bound together for life as Falcon and Falconer, mage and keeper, in the service of the Raverran Empire.

b >The Tethered Mage is a spellbinding debut fantasy for fans of The Queen of the Tearling and The Red Queen.
In the Raverran Empire, magic is scarce and those born with power are strictly controlled -- taken as children and conscripted into the Falcon army.
Zaira has lived her life on the streets to avoid this fate, hiding her mage mark and thieving to survive. But hers is a rare and dangerous magic, one that threatens the entire Empire.
Lady Amalia Cornaro was never meant to be a Falconer. Heiress and scholar, she was born into a treacherous world of political machinations.
But fate has bound the heir and the mage. And as war looms on the horizon, a single spark could turn their city into a pyre.

The Tethered Mage is the first novel in Caruso's debut series, Swords and Fire. span.
