A half immortal with the ability to wield the light and the dark powers, a villain tormentor, and a dragon rider to her rescue.
Her life shadowed with despair since her mother’s horrifying death, Ahnalyn grabs at the chance for happiness when a proposal whisks her from her bland life of tending sheep. But Lord Caedryn, a neighboring tyrant, takes her captive, and shatters all that is left of her brief happiness.
Ahnalyn can’t see past Lord Caedryn’s regular taunts, compounded by her misery in the cell. He seems to know Ahnalyn’s true ancestry, claiming her mother was more than she portrayed, claiming Ahnalyn inherited more than just her green eyes from her mother.
As Ahnalyn’s confusion reaches a climax, she gains a small hope of rescue from Aneirin, a dragon rider. But she’s so damaged from the darkness growing inside her that he fears not even the love from an immortal Son of Light can breach Ahnalyn’s darkened state and turn her from her quest of revenge.
