“This book hit all the right genre notes for me — fantasy, horror, more horror, and then some more fantasy, all wrapped up in some good grimdark action. The characters were well-drawn, and the magic system was woven throughout with just the right amount of information to keep the story going.”
– Rachel A. Brune, an Amazon review.
Come for the royals, stay for the Rhymona.

The Walking Dead meets Game of Thrones in The Royal Nothings, the stunning debut from Drew Bailey brimming with magic, mystery, horror, and heartbreak, and the first book in the thrilling dark fantasy series The Giftborn Chronicles. 

Tired of being a puppet prince, Remy turned in the crown for a watchman’s sword.

Tired of being a protected princess, Marsea turned in her petticoats for an assassin’s cloak.

Tired of…well, just about everyone and everything, Aiden, the best blood-mage of his graduating class, turns in his laurels for another bottle of the black.

These royal nothings think they have escaped the worst, the past, only to find an even more horrific future awaits them when an ancient evil releases a blight of ghouls and darkness on their world. Can they, or anyone at all, survive?
