Third book in The Network Series

Despite swirling rumors of war, seventeen-year-old Bianca Monroe is living without restraint for the first time. With no curse to hinder her and her enemy, Miss Mabel, imprisoned in an impervious dungeon, she’s finally free.

Except . . . nothing lasts forever.

The Southern Network attacks, launching Bianca, her beloved father, and everyone she cares for into a war controlled by the clandestine witch Angelina.

The only witch who can save the Central Network is the conniving Miss Mabel.

Will setting Miss Mabel free unleash an even greater evil on all of Alkarra?

The High Priest’s Daughter is the third book in the thrilling new fantasy collection The Network Series. It’s a haunting tale about growing up and finding the strength within.


An excerpt from The High Priest's Daughter:

"There will be no safe place when the West attacks," I said as I turned away, staring out at the sea of burned rubble. An abandoned doll lay in the wreckage, her porcelain face half-burned. "Not anywhere."

"Our home is much safer than here," Jackie insisted, her jaw set. "What about you?"

"What about me?"

"What are you going to do if there is a war?"

I glanced at the burned remains of the streets of Chatham City and wondered the same thing.

"I'll fight."

Fun read

And the story gets more action packed! I love all the twists and turns this book came with! Fun to read. Thank you Katie for telling us more of this amazing Alkarra!

Katie never disappoints

Bianca, is my kind of hero, she is kickass and passionate, fiercely loyal and makes decisions from the heart. No matter the trials and horrors that befall her, she never gives up. This novel is a fully rounded story in an incredibly constructed world. Katie's characters are never shallow, they have layers, I'm a fan, live Katie's writing.

Fantastic once again

I read this as part of the Network Series Collection. so I will copy that review here also. The stories had me spellbound from beginning to end. Bianca with her inherited curse. Friends she makes. An evil teacher. Danger. Death. Powers. A dangerous enemy. A gorgeous Protector. A love between father and daughter. A kidnapping. More death and a battle to the end. Very highly recommended series. Loved it.

This series just keeps getting better!

Wow! The Network Series builds in intensity and excitement. The characters and plot have such depth. Katie Cross is an excellent world-builder and story teller. She had me on the edge of my seat the whole time!

Excellent characters
