Blair became popular on TikTok when she got creative with her publishing journey. The author self-published her first novel, 2021’s A Broken Blade, anonymously, but sent copies of the novel to fellow members of the BookTok community, along with a set of clues, to help uncover her identity.

The Halfling Series includes A Broken Blade, 2023's A Shadow Crown and 2024's A Vicious Game. The novels include anti-colonialist narratives and challenges to imperial power structures. Blair also touched upon her Anishinaabe-kwe background to create the saga's setting.

An Honored Vow
will wrap up the beloved series. The final book will follow protagonist Keera, who is finding her footing after learning a secret about an ally. As if that weren’t enough, she and her fellow rebels must rescue one of their friends who was taken hostage from King Damien.
