THE RED SCRIBE
China’s Western Colonies, formerly known as the United States, live under the constant threat of a plague engineered by a magician king who rules the world with his demon army.
Lily is a calligrapher gifted with divine magic in her words. Her people have commissioned her to kill the king, but she is convinced that peace cannot be achieved by force—it must be won by hope.
When Lily’s plans to become an ambassador to rally international resistance land her in a trap set by the king, she's forced to give up her first love and enlist the help of the king’s son to prove that the magic in her words can tame the sword.
