Prologue

Janderi sat at her desk reviewing her paperwork. The sheets were finely cut and pressed and the Black ink showed especially well against the white paper.

The 67 earlier profiles seemed the same. Richer merchants or nobility applying for the job for their daughters. But the 68th was different. 

A crisp, Autumn breeze came in through the window tousling her greying black hair. A smile slowly crept across her face and her dark eyes brightened as she absorbed the information.

Bandit.

The words printed on the paper stood out from the rest. This applicant was a bandit. Scanning the paper for other information, she stood, the chair screeching on the stone floor. 

She shivered as the chill in the room was brought to her attention. Wrapping her cloak around her even more tightly she opened the heavy wooden door and went down the stairs of Star Tower in Castle Flower. Unlike it's name it was a sturdy structure made out of heavy stone.

The slits in the wall let in more cold air as she practically ran down the stairs. At the bottom, out of breath, she opened the other wooden door.

She raced down the halls until she came to the door she was looking for. Janderi grabbed the brass knocker and knocked three times and then ran in. 


Lord Tarfin of Castle Flower was a sturdy man. He enjoyed his luxury but did not take it for granted. So saying he also valued his privacy a great deal so when Janderi ran in he raised his eyebrows. Janderi knew not to interrupt him when he was in his office.
"Sorry My Lord but I found her." Janderi said, her eyes twinkling."Are you sure?" He asked her. She nodded

Sarah Luongo: My friend recommended this to me and I was hooked immediately. The images and voices of these characters come so clearly in my head, which I love.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Marijana1: The melancholy present throughout this story has the power to influence and etch into the minds of the readers, to stay there and refuse to leave even after they have finished reading the story. This is a deep, powerful story, making the readers wonder about everything ā€“ about love, about their e...

mullikin902: Do not start reading this book unless you have enough time to finish it in one sitting, because you will not be able to put it down! Superlative! Addictive! Deliciously wicked characters you can't get enough of. Impatiently waiting for the sequel!

sanbyra: This story is very well written and flows beautifully. I became engrossed in the romance element as well as the impending war. The action scenes are also depicted very well. I can't wait to read what happens next!

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 šŸ’•

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and Iā€™m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...
