Prologue

The ravens were silent in the dawn light, their black feathers gleaming in the first rays of light. A winged figure sat in a hidden hollow, cluching a tiny bundle. She held the child, a single tear falling. Footsteps sounded on the ground, alongside hoofbeats and wingbeats. She placed the baby down, hiding her in the hollow.

Then, the angel closed her eyes, welcoming the darkness.
