Alex Shartsman’s debut novel is an epic coming of age story centered on the titular Eridani as she rises from hardscrabble youth to ruler of the world. It has shades of King Lear, and a fascinating magic system that illuminates the characters, Eridani’s greatest flaws and strengths, the perils of power, and the consequences of seizing it.
