The Inquisitor By Carikavanlog Updated 3 days ago

If you ask Haze, newborn human babies should be killed for their own good. Festering on an island, the human race grows more of a mistake than a freak of nature.

Haze, the bastard child of the self-proclaimed king of the human race, spends her days in the underbelly of the island taking every measure to find her supposed dead mother. Receiving a marking for every time she overstepped, she still goes about breaking every rule her father has set to keep her in check. When beings from the mainland come to claim a new ambassador after the last one met his fate with pixies, her father doesn't hesitate to throw her to the wolves. One mouth less to feed. One headache less.

Her life is torn apart when she leaves for the land of the Val-magic-wielding beings-and she gets wrapped up in the troubles brewing in the dark grooves of the mainland. 

Her bloodline will be what saves her and kill her, not to mention her race. Among beings older than mountains, she must stay alive long enough to find the truths hidden from her and pick apart the riddles her ancestors left that could save everyone.
