Wyntier's Rise by Natalie Erin
(Creatures of the Lands #3)
The new generation begins...
It has been over a decade since Wyntier kidnapped Kennu and his friends. Nearly sixteen, Kennu and his griffin Allakenzie live within the safety of the Verinian Forest, desperate to live as normal teenagers. Allie struggles to cope with the repercussions of her powers as a prophetess, and Kennu an ever worsening, terminal illness. Yet Wynter is on the move, and he will stop at nothing to obtain power, targeting the only ones who stand in his way... Kennu’s family.
Meanwhile, across the ocean, Kennu’s cousin Soran deals with a string of strange disappearances. The once-free city of Nesting’s Haven has become a dictatorship, his university transformed from a school of magic into a brainwashing facility.
No one who stands against the new regime is allowed to live. Teenagers build new friendships, battle bullies and fall in love as the world collapses around them into an all-out war. But can a group of young outcasts stop the most ruthless villain the Lands have ever known? Is it worth losing everything to stand up for what you believe?
A story of grief, hope, and faith, Wyntier’s Rise is a young adult epic fantasy full of dragons, witches, vampires, shifters, and fae. Readers will stay up all night to complete Natalie Erin’s newest edition to the Creatures of the Lands series.
