Ever since I could remember, I've had a strange tattoo. I could hide it. Self control is everything. No one would ever know. Everything was going great. Until I couldn't hold it back any longer. It started to come out and show. After all . . . everything good must come to an end.
A world with magic and monsters. A world with beauty and danger. Kill or be killed. If you're lucky, train to kill demons in the academy for your whole life. Earning money and building your reputation. That's what it has been like for Alina. The only life Alina has ever known. But she had a good life. Even with little family, she is kind, and in an odd way, comforting . . . but only to her few friends.
To others, she was a dangerous, mean, cold person. And she is. She is one of the top students at the academy.
Yes, she is feared by.
Yes, she is a little lonely.
No, she didn't like to kill.
But a side of her did. A side that loved the smell of blood, the rush of adrenaline, how fragile everything actually was. How everything had a devil and angel.
She was born with that destiny. Alina had no choice. Maybe, she should just embrace it. Unless, somehow, she can change it. But how can one change destiny? Especially if Destiny herself has had her eye on Alina for some time now. Destiny is, after all, . . . unchangeable. Isn't it?
