As a second invasion by the Empire threatens the nomads of the Great Steppe, a new generation of leaders must mend the broken alliances of their fathers or face certain destruction. Vacant Steppes is a Mongolia-inspired epic fantasy novel about inheritance, family, and leadership in times of division and war.

About the author

Steven Sy was born and raised in Quezon City, Philippines, but traded in one sunny, tropical country for another, moving to Singapore to study anthropology at Yale-NUS College. His fascination with epic fantasy began with The Lord of the Rings and The Elder Scrolls series, and he continues to be obsessed with how made-up worlds can make people see the real one in new ways. He also dabbles in playwriting and is the co-creator of Tiwala, a musical about faith and community set in provincial Philippines.
