When Rowen Mar’s father dies, a man from her village proposes marriage. When the man won’t take no for an answer, Rowen defends herself, unleashing a powerful light from her hand that allows her to see into the man’s soul. Banished as a witch, Rowen sets out for the White City to find a new life, constantly wearing a glove over her hand in fear that touching anyone will trigger the power inside her. As evil Shadonae rise in the east and war threatens the White City, Rowen must face the truth about herself is she is to help her people.
Bravo for Morgan L. Busse! This was a delightful debut that kept me interested until the very last page, then sad to see that the book was truly over. I liked the way the author wove several points of view together, planting seeds for future books. I’m eager to read more, which I think might be called Son of Truth. I hope I don’t have to wait too long. Highly recommended!
