The legend of Shadow Arrow Book 1, The Aveng...
"I remember what I must do, even if it makes me the villain of my own story."
Thunderstar is a mongrel. A half breed.
Long ago, there was a civilization of humans that weren't human. They were half animal. During the first war, they aided the heroes and led them to victory. Legend says that the villains drove them out some years after the War ended. And there, the civilization died out and eventually went extinct.
The legend is wrong.
One of them survived, the daughter of the king himself. From her, the civilization lived on, and eventually purified once more.
Now, it is six thousand years later, and Thunderstar possess the memory of the very first of her kind: Mercy, who made herself immortal, and now, the Book of Mercy the Mage is in grave danger. A new war is brewing, a war between the heroes and villains, and Thunderstar is caught in the middle of it.
When a voice from history guides her to the heroes, Thunderstar swears an Oath to protect the Book at all costs . . . even if it means at the cost of her own life.
