In a world where seventh born sons are valued for their strength and power, she is born a daughter.
Zezilia Ilar is the disappointment. Born after six brothers, she was supposed to be the son to restore her familyâ€™s prestige. She intends to remedy her shortcomings by being a dutiful daughter, marrying well and producing children, preferably a set of seven sons. But when someone offers her an alternative, she begins to dream of more.
In a society that worships a goddess, he follows the Almighty.
Hadrian Aleron, as a seventh son of a seventh son, stands to take up the second highest position in government, Sept Son. His main qualification for office is his birth. Despite preparing for this role from childhood, he does not desire what is to come. As a follower of the Almighty, he knows he will be the target of many, and his faith might eventually lead to death.

Top Ten ListÂ about Rachel Rossano
1 â€“ I have three children that equally challenge, frustrate, and delight me every day.
2 â€“ Almost twenty years ago, I married my best friend, and I have never regretted the decision for a moment.
3 â€“ My parents are exactly a foot apart in height, and my husband and I are exactly a foot apart in height.
4 â€“ I have no lenses in my eyes. I developed cataracts when I was very young and had the lenses in my eyes removed so I could see.
5 â€“ Since childhood, I have not liked the texture of meat. Because of this, I have been a vegetarian since I was allowed to prepare my own food.
6 â€“ I started publishing my books because I feared I would never have children. Now, I am homeschooling three children and fitting my writing and publishing around their educational needs. Iâ€™ve wondered more than once if the Lord did that so that I would continue to write. Otherwise, I mightâ€™ve waited until they were all raised and grown.
7 â€“ I have naturally curly hair that refuses to stay straight or in place.
8 â€“ My kids are some of my biggest fans despite the fact they have read none of my books.
9 â€“ I post silly stories on FB about the things my kids say and do, not because I want everyone to be impressed with them, but so I will remember them later.
10 â€“ My first crush was on Spock from Star Trek. So, when my husband comments that I am part Vulcan (meaning highly analytical and logical), I consider it quite the complement.
