Blurb

Orphaned from a young age and raised by her abusive grandmother Aidan is no stranger to a lifetime of plight and sorrow. Yet when the Inquisitors come looking for the Chosen, a girl with a unique birthmark similar to Aidan's, she must flee if she’s to survive. Delving deep into Darkling Woods, a terrible place of pain and suffering, Aidan will draw on all her skills and instincts to survive. Along with her friend Griffin they are faced with the task of not only evading the Inquisitors but also navigating the depths of Darkling and its minions. Across their journey the events that transpire will grow to define not only Aidan’s existence but that of the very world as she knows it.

Prologue

The Tree remembered when the world was young, when fiery chasms riddled the landscape, their fierce magma reshaping the earth. It was just a sapling then, its blooms mere buds of what they were destined to become. The bark of the Tree was crimson and gold and its flowers were burning flames. The blooms shone like stars in the night and the valley where the Tree lived was filled with light.

Over the ages, many men sought the Tree to steal the fiery blooms legend claimed granted eternal life. Their bones were scattered as far as the eye could see in the valley where the Tree lived. Only one pilgrim hadn’t followed their fate. She had plucked a fiery bloom from the Tree and lived.

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did.
