This buddy comedy turned sapphic love story from Sunday Times bestselling author Grace Curtis is perfect for fans of Max Gladstone, Shelley Parker-Chan, and A. K. Larkwood

Two women set out on an epic journey to discover the world-altering secrets of a fallen civilization. 

On one side of the world, Aleya Ana-Ulai is itching for a chance to prove herself by stealing an ancient artifact. Her family have written her off as a mistake, but she's determined to prove every last one of them wrong. 

On the other, Kirby of Wall's End is searching for a way to redeem herself after the loss of her brother. An ancient curse tore her life apart, but to fix it, she'll have to leave everything behind. 

Fate sets them both on the path to Nivela, the city where all roads lead. Generations ago the city shut its gates and nobody has been in or out since. When Aleya and Kirby’s paths converge on Nivela, it becomes clear that something is desperately wrong. As their pilgrimage transforms into a scramble to save the world, the two women will have to determine what can be saved – and what will be sacrificed...

A character-driven science-fantasy road trip book with sword fights and a slowburn romance, Idolfire delves into the vastness of history and the terrifying power of organized faith.
