Burned by Fate, Inflamed with Destiny.
Inexplicable seizures have plagued 15 year-old Genevieve Solace her entire life – seizures so violent that she’s left unconscious for days at a time.
News of the king’s Raiders tell stories of vicious murders where women are slain, children are orphaned, and entire towns have been leveled to ashes, all in search for the Girl with the Scar.
As autumn ends and the cold of winter sets in, Genevieve fears that the raids are growing near. She can only pray to the gods that the Raiders will never find her. But fate, as it seems, is rarely ever so kind.
Without Light, There is only Darkness.
Genevieve has entered the Black Lands in search for the Vestige of the Tear to break the curse over her life, despising that she has been deemed the Girl with the Scar.
Ian, the assumed Raider informant, has warned her that the depths of the Black Lands contains beasts more formidable than she has ever encountered, and there is a piercing cold that bites into the very fabric of her being, chilling her even into her bones.
Hidden beneath the veil of darkness lies many secrets — secrets about herself and secrets about Kalarn.
While traversing through the caverns, Genevieve comes across a mysterious woman named Menjada who has taken residence in the Black Lands. Suspicious and withholding, this mysterious woman promises Genevieve aid in the search for the Vestige, but something inside Genevieve warns her of this stranger’s ill intentions.
Genevieve must choose to trust this Menjada while seeking to find the Vestige, delving into the darkness of the Black Lands and into the very pit of her own soul.
The Heart Must Be Broken To Reveal The Soul.
The Dark Queen is dying, poisoned by the venomous Deathwalkers from the Black Lands. And with Menja outwitting Stasis by turning the power of the Vestige to herself, Stasis will stop at nothing to regain the upper hand.
Under the threat of Edward’s death, Eva and her Raider-turned-informant friend Ian navigate from central to eastern Kalarn in search for Menja and the queen.
Desperate to find a cure to the queen’s sickness and uncover Menja’s whereabouts, Eva and Ian must face a challenge that will forever alter the fate of Kalarn.
