Chasm follows on from the heart-stopping smash-hit beginning, Ledge
Dawsyn’s fight to save the people of the Ledge is far from over…
Dawsyn’s miraculous escape from the Ledge was just the beginning. In the queens’ dungeon, Dawsyn awaits her execution while reliving the death of her lover, Ryon. There is no hope for mercy.
But hope finds her in the form of rescue by her village friends. Now on the run and struggling to tame her newly-gained and greatly unstable powers, Dawsyn’s journey continues. Facing betrayal anew, she must learn patience and trust as she builds strength on all fronts, while she and her comrades recover and ready themselves for what’s to come.
As they ascend the perilous mountain slopes once again to the Glacian kingdom, in a desperate attempt to save those remaining on the Ledge, Dawsyn must battle wills as well as weapons, before discovering an entirely new evil awaiting her…

PRAISE FOR LEDGE
“A gritty fantasy of betrayal and vengeance set against a clever bit of worldbuilding… Readers looking for a bloody Kill Bill fairy tale (and not a “Beauty and the Beast” charmer) will be more than satisfied.” – Publishers Weekly
“The Maas mob will devour this trilogy. Ledge reads like Laini Taylor’s lore set in Leigh Bardugo’s Fjerda, penned with Katherine Arden’s prose. The narrative pacing, playfulness, and deliverance will delight fans of Ilona Andrews’ Innkeeper Chronicles and Holly Black’s The Folk of the Air.” – Angela Armstrong, author of The Unflinching Ash
“Despite the icy setting, Ledge is a sizzling story filled with sexual tension, betrayal, and stolen heritage and a series to watch out for.” – British Fantasy Society
“McEwan, a popular figure on BookTok, has written an ambitious fantasy debut. The plot and worldbuilding are thoroughly fleshed out and make this novel a great start to the Glacian Trilogy.” – Library Journal
“A bold and gutsy epic fantasy debut… Lusty at times even rollicking, with formidable fighting, pops of powerful healing magic, and a heroic plot, Ledge will appeal to those seeking new adult romantic fantasy.” – LoveReading
“This book is immediately gripping. I was invested every step of the way, and loved the visceral world of the ledge. The cold might not be alive, but these characters definitely jump off the page, and the enemies to lovers romance hit all the right spots. Stacey’s debut novel is a triumph for all fantasy lovers, and I can’t wait to see where this series goes!” —Raven Kennedy, author of The Plated Prisoner series
“The Bridgerton crowd will love it. But so too will the Buffy crowd… The heroes are compelling, rugged but likeable, and there’s a confident immediacy to the present-tense prose.” – SFX Magazine
