Follow the Law and you'll stay safe

But what if the Law is wrong? 

Tashué’s faith in the law is beginning to crack.


Three years ago, he stood by when the Authority condemned Jason to the brutality of the Rift for non-compliance. When Tashué’s son refused to register as tainted, the laws had to be upheld. He’d never doubted his job as a Regulation Officer before, but three years of watching your son wither away can break down even the strongest convictions.


Then a dead girl washed up on the bank of the Brightwash, tattooed and mutilated. Where had she come from? Who would tattoo a child? Was it the same person who killed her?


Why was he the only one who cared?


Will Tashué be able to stand against everything he thought he believed in to get the answers he’s looking for?

In Reviews

"Remarkable doesn't even begin to describe the depth and quality of Krystle Matar's Legacy of the Brightwash."

"...one of the finest examples of character driven fantasy I have ever read."

"Tashué is everyone – a reflection of all our fears, failures, hopes, and dreams."


"With its haunting story and its unforgettable characters, Brightwash hits hard in all the very best ways."

"If Stieg Larsson got up from his grave to expand his horizons by writing gaslamp fantasy, broke your heart bit by bit and stomped on the remains, and then left you begging for more, the result would be almost as good as Legacy of the Brightwash."
