About the Author
REBECCA ROSS was born and raised in Georgia, where she continues to reside with her husband, her lively Australian Shepherd, and her endless piles of books. She loves coffee, the night sky, chalk art, maps, the mountains, and growing wildflowers in her yard. And a good story, of course. She is the author of The Queen's Rising, The Queen's Resistance, Sisters of Sword and Song, Dreams Lie Beneath, and A River Enchanted

"Ross has crafted a tale that hooks its readers with whip-smart intrigue, and holds them fast with dazzling prose, a charming cast, and a world where mystique shimmers just beneath the surface. Hers is a brilliant blend of whimsy and heart." --Ayana Gray, New York Times bestselling author of Beasts of Prey

"Beautifully written and deeply emotional, Divine Rivals is a story of resilience and love, crafted with Ross's bewitching storytelling. Real characters, swept into a magical war, this is the kind of a tale that gets under your skin and straight to your heart. Truly romantic and atmospheric, this book will leave you hungry for the next installment." - Valia Lind, USA Today bestselling author of The Scarlet Rose
