No one tells Shamira Kelley how to live her life. Not the parents who abandoned her. Or the ancient relic that seeks to bond with her.
Her pendant, a leftover from a millenniums-old tragedy, wants revenge for its death. And it means to use Shamira toward that end. But she wants nothing to do with the pendant and the ‘gift’ that allows her to kill with a single thought.
Her choices? Never use the pendant. Or wield it and lose her soul. When Faelan, a man of few words, offers his help, she is suspicious but his rusty charm dispels her concern. His true agenda remains hidden; the destruction of the relic using any means necessary. Shamira’s death would accomplish this but her fight against the pendant’s influence intrigues him and he decides to wait. At least for now. Besides, he can always kill her later.
For the ones who would steal it, the pendant represents power and glory. For her, it is a curse. And a temptation. The position of Heroine is open. And no one loathes the job more than Shamira.
