After being randomly selected as a human sacrifice, instead of death, Dawsyn finds herself on a quest to save her people from their icy prison… 


File Under: Fantasy [ Ax-ing For It | The Cold Is Not Alive | Finding Freedom | Ledge-hanger ]

 

Ledge is the heart-stopping beginning to the Glacian Trilogy from TikTok sensation Stacey McEwan.
In a place known as the Ledge, a civilization is trapped by a vast chasm and sheer mountain face. There is no way for anyone to escape the frozen wasteland without befalling a deathly drop. They know nothing of the outside world except that it is where the Glacians reside – mystical and vicious winged creatures who bring meagre rations in exchange for a periodic human sacrifice.
Dawsyn, ax wielder and only remaining member of her family, has so far avoided the annual culling, but her luck has run out. She is chosen and ripped from her icy home, the only world she knows. No one knows what will happen to her on the other side, least of all Dawsyn. Murdered? Enslaved? Worse?
Fortunately, a half-Glacian called Ryon offers to help them both escape, but how can she trust one of the very creatures that plagued her life? Dawsyn is a survivor, and she is not afraid to cut anyone down to live.
With a slow-burning romance, high stakes and even higher rewards, this richly created new fantasy series by popular TikToker Stacey McEwan will keep you gripped to the very end.

“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 

“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

“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

    This is THAT book. The one that is so good it ruins all others after it. That we read everything else in hopes of finding it. Looking forward to more books from this author, I’m already a massive fan. Stay the frost 🧊
