Daughter of Darkness (Soul Stealer #1)
Rayen Adari was only eight-years-old when her family was slaughtered at the hands of a tyrannical king, her village burnt to the ground as consequence for haynous crimes against the Kingdom of Ugaria. Yet, unlike the rest of her people, Rayen managed to escape the carnage and found refuge in the city of Quain; a place where sinners remain hidden.
For years, Rayen managed to avoid the bounty placed upon her kind, fighting at every turn, with the aid of her uncle and two cousins. But the years have slowly crept upon Rayen and every secret must some day bare towards the light. With the King's order to kill every last living Yaknah, Rayen must make a daring escape from the cruel and sinister Baladan Lācis: a traitorous Yaknah employed to kill her.
But help comes in a most unlikely form.
The skinwalkers were said to have died many centuries ago - according to the history books. But, now they are back and asking for Rayen's aid in saving one of their own. However, the skinwalkers hold their own secrets...and one of those secrets may just be the key to unlocking the answers to a sequence of mysterious dreams that terrorise Rayen during her sleep.
With war brewing in the near future and a Kingdom hanging in the balance, Rayen must fight in order to keep those she loves alive. But, the bounty placed upon her head is not all she need worry about. There is a darkness coming; it burns within her, and she doesn't know how long she has until it consumes her completely.
