Shadowed (The Shadows of Ukwaia Book One)
~Her milky grey eyes bored into mine with an unusual sharpness, "Memories are powerful things; they can make as well as break the person who bears them. The events of your distant past could turn your whole world upside down, are you sure you truly want to remember?"
I hesitated before speaking, "If you learned that your whole life has been a lie, wouldn't you want to know the truth?"~
For almost all her life, monster hunting has been all that Aria Tempest has known since the day her parents were killed and she was taken in by the Venators. Although she sometimes feels at odds with killing some of the magicals out there, she has long since accepted that her lot in life would be that of any ordinary human monster huntress.
Yet when hints of a sealed power start appearing around her and a strange mysterious man comes into her life, Aria's world is soon turned upside down as she begins discovering secrets about herself and the organisation she works for, secrets that they had tried so hard to bury and she cannot help but question whether she can trust anyone who has ever been considered an ally or friend in her life.
However, hidden secrets are the least of Aria's worries as sinister beings hunt her from the shadows, watching her every move and keeping their intentions with her unclear. Are they seeking revenge for her successful career as a monster huntress? Did she stumble upon a darker secret in her search? Or are their reasons much more sinister than that?
