Acacia: Book 1: The War with the Mein

Born into generations of prosperity, the four royal children of the Akaran dynasty know little of the world outside their opulent island paradise. But when an assassin strikes at the heart of their power, their lives are changed forever. Forced to flee to distant corners and separated against their will, the children must navigate a web of hidden allegiances, ancient magic, foreign invaders, and illicit trade that will challenge their very notion of who they are. As they come to understand their true purpose in life, the fate of the world lies in their hands.

David Anthony Durham (born 1969) is an American novelist, author of historical fiction and fantasy.

Durham's first novel, Gabriel's Story, centered on African American settlers in the American West.

His novels have twice been New York Times Notable Books, won two awards from the American Library Association, and been translated into eight foreign languages.
