The Assassin's Shadow
***Top 55 of Harlequin's So You Think You Can Write Contest***
Elaine Archer didn’t always know she was different, not until her accident in sixth grade. A fall that should have killed her left her with nothing, not even a scar to flaunt as proof of her fall. From that moment on, she kept the secret even from her own family; the secret that she couldn’t be hurt by any ordinary means. Blades cut through her skin, fire burned her flesh, but her skin would simply mend itself as if it had a mind of it’s own. One day, she sees three people who, unknowingly to her, all possess gifts, like her. After days of stakeout, they succeed in kidnapping Elaine and take her away to work for them. In a world where no one can be trusted, how will she survive?
