Rogue Legacy by Jeffrey Kohanek

Nomination badges earned:


“A fantasy retelling akin to The Princess Bride, but in this one, the girl saves herself.”
Meet Lyra:
• An orphan
• A thief
• A bard
• A warrior
• A princess
• A survivor
• …A rogue

When tragedy strikes, Lyra runs for her life…directly into the hands of fate. Destiny places her at the heart of a plot to overthrow the rulers of Issalia with deceit and betrayals lurking at every turn.

Lyra’s tale is one of magic, persistence, personal growth, and a budding romance as she evolves from a rebellious girl to a heroic adult.


Jeffrey L. Kohanek grew up in rural Minnesota where comics sparked his young imagination, inspiring fantasies of heroes with super-powers saving the day. His tastes later evolved to fantasy epics featuring unlikely heroes overcoming impossible odds to save worlds born from the writer’s imagination.

Now residing in southern California, Jeffrey’s published fantasy books include the Runes of Issalia trilogy, the follow-up four-book series, Wardens of Issalia, and the stand alone title Rogue Legacy.
