Daughter of Azeroth
❃ DOUBLE AWARD WINNER ❃ #44 in Fantasy June 7, 2017 ❃
Born in Westfall to a poor family, violet-eyed Idira endures hunger, isolation and abuse at the hands of her cruel father until the dangerous kingpin of a criminal organisation rescues her.
As she grows into womanhood, cocooned in wealth and surrounded by violence, she learns her unusual eyes are harbingers of a rare magic she possesses, as old as Azeroth itself, which connects her to a powerful, charismatic mage trapped on another planet. Despite being almost twice her age and separated by an impossible distance, Khadgar captures her heart, though she can only love him in silence.
Later driven from Westfall by the arrival of the Legion's vicious demons, she learns of the magical city of Dalaran and of Khadgar's return. Desperate to harness the power she feels growing within her and to meet the man of her visions, she determines to travel to the floating city and learn how to become a mage. But once she arrives, her unusual violet eyes soon cause her to become the object of everyone's scorn--everyone's, that is, except for one.

Daughter of Azeroth is a sidequel to my novella Into the Light, it tells the untold story of Idira; of her long and difficult path to her destiny, which is revealed in Into the Light. Even if you haven't read Into the Light (although I hope you will!), Daughter of Azeroth can be read as a stand-alone story.
