Publisher Description

A brand-new space fantasy novel from master world-builder Valerie Valdes! A refugee with a secret, a dangerous foe, and a road trip that could either save a planet or start a war. 

Where peace is lost, may we find it.

Five years ago, Kelana Gardavros lost everything in the war against the Pale empire. Now Kel Garda is just another refugee living on the edge of an isolated star system. No one knows she was once a member of an Order whose military arm was disbanded and scattered across the galaxy. And no one knows that if her enemies found her, they might destroy the entire world to get rid of her.

Where peace is broken, may we mend it.

Kel’s past intrudes in the form of a long-dormant Pale war machine, suddenly reactivated. If the massive automaton isn’t stopped, at best it will carve a swath of devastation that displaces thousands of people. At worst, it will kill every sentient creature on the planet.

Where we go, may peace follow.

When two strangers offer to deactivate the machine for a price, Kel and a young friend agree to serve as their guides. The journey through swamps infested with predators and bandits is bad enough, but can they survive more nefarious dangers along the way? And will Kel’s fear of revealing her secrets doom the very people she’s trying to protect?

Where we fall, may peace rise.

“this book has my heart. it is completely perfect to me. i am screaming in silence.”
“An enthusiastic 5 stars. I picked up Where Peace is Lost based on the title and the cover — I think both are beautiful. As it turns out, the story lives up to that initial impression. There is plenty of action and romance to love, but the lyrical, meditative thoughts sprinkled throughout are what really stole my heart. It’s one of those books where I knew it was a new favorite just 10% in. I truly hope we get to see more from this world in the future. Thank you to Harper Voyager and NetGalley for providing an advanced copy for me to review.”
