Prologue

The goddess hid herself in the shifting shadows, her gaze lingering on the human girl that would soon become hers. Her red eyes darkened, just a shade off from the likes of the girl.

The candle light flickered as she closed in. Another step, and she would be looming over the girl. Within those eyes, so red they could be called crimson, illuminates sullen remorse and guilt.

Though she had accidentally marked the girl as hers, the mortal remains beyond her reach. And for the suffering she had inadvertently inflicted upon the girl, nothing she could do would be suitable atonement.

As a goddess, perhaps she was the only one who would feel something like guilt...

Even as she was a goddess, as incomplete as she was, fate was not a domain of hers. Thus, even though she had caused the tragedy that had befallen the girl, she could not stop the one that would soon befall her.

And for that, perhaps all she could do was provide the girl the powers to untangle herself from her destiny...

And the rest would be up to herself...

Light so blinding shone as the goddess reached for the girl, the colours of red, purple and black dancing and struggling to coexist. The goddess brushed away a few golden locks resting upon the girl's forehead, her hand lingering for a moment as she whispered words of apology. Sparks sprung forth from the orb of light, and as the goddess pushed it into the girl through her forehead, an intricate crest appeared on the girl's head, before slowly fading from sight.

The girl now wore the symbol of Discordia.

And whether she knew it or not, her life as it is would cease to exist.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin!

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

Jason Phang: More, I want MORE! Your stories are keeping me from games and (gasp) even sleep! Each chapter brought fresh hooks that I willingly wolfed down (pun intended) and I just couldn't bear going to sleep not knowing what happens next to Lindsay and Wayne. I also loved how the epilogue was done. Excelle...

Megan King: This book is absolutely amazing, it kept me on my toes through the entire book. I hope there is a second book. I would 10 out of 10 recommend this for anyone who loves fantasy, action or romance because it is full of all three 💕
