Magic forms both feast and famine…

Carin has never known hunger. Born into the Hearthland, a lush world of fertile fields and abundant resources, her biggest worry is whether she and her three friends will find their true names on their Journeying. But when one of them is murdered on the morning of their departure, Carin’s peaceful world is stained with blood.  

As they travel north, Carin and her friends discover a horrible truth: their land’s bounty is no mystery. An ancient spell cast by their ancestors is draining the very life force from the lands across the northern mountains, withering the earth and starving its people.

Forced to confront the truth, Carin must decide her own fate. Remain silent and allow the murder of the earth itself—or risk her own life in exile and break the spell.

The hearths of home have only ever nourished. Now the Hearthland will see just how hot fire can burn. 

All choices have consequences.
"Second-world fantasy with a cultural norm of non-binary gendering? Sign me right up! …you'll slip into the setting like getting into a warm bath. Of course, the setting feels so real because the people there feel real. I am VERY eager for book 2." 
— LibraryThing Early Reviewers
"Mears has crafted a highly detailed world…will leave readers eager for Carin’s further adventures."
— Publishers Weekly
"…a powerful debut to a new series that will grip the reader until the end. Mears’ skilled storytelling make this emotional read stand out. Despite the fantastic world, the narrative feels real with complex characters…HEARTHFIRE feels different from other coming-of-age stories with its progressive thinking and darker plot line."

"This outstanding fantasy novel will resonate with readers in the real world: it could truly be about anyone coming to the realization that their way of life does indeed affect others, even if they don’t realize it, and how important it is to do the right thing, even if that means going against the norm and alienating people you thought were good and wise."
