“David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can’t wait to read whatever he writes next."—George R. R. MartinWelcome to Acacia . . . Born into generations of prosperity, the four royal children of the Akaran dynasty know little of the world outside their opulent island paradise. But when an assassin strikes at the heart of their power, their lives are changed forever. Forced to flee to distant corners and separated against their will, the children must navigate a web of hidden allegiances, ancient magic, foreign invaders, and illicit trade that will challenge their very notion of who they are. As they come to understand their true purpose in life, the fate of the world lies in their hands.

A person looking for an epic, family-driven narrative of doorstop girth, especially in the absence of a new George R. R. Martin tome, could do much worse than this.

This was a great epic. The characters were complex, and they changed and grew, for better or worse, throughout the story. There were unexpected twists in the plot, and some I was able to predict.
