Blinding Light (UNDER EDITING)

All Rights Reserved ©


The year is 2340. Does she know that? No, of course not. Mila Hayes, adopted into a noble family after years of running, is given a chance to win the hand of the prince of Iwera. She takes this opportunity for money and for the benefit of her house, which is dropping fast in rank, causing difficulties with finance. Living in the castle, she experiences traumatic dreams and finds a mysterious cat that visits her at midnight from time to time. As time progresses, Mila discovers a deep, dark secret hidden far beneath about her past, or rather, the present. Will she forgive those who betrayed her? Or will she be blinded by revenge? Author's Note: This story contains mental disturbance, violence, and strong language. I will inform at the beginning of every chapter that contains these scenes. But otherwise... I entered for the midsummer mystery contest, please support! Thank you! Besides, contests means more frequent chapter updates :) Updates: 2 times a week. 3? Maybe... After all chapters are published I will edit the whole story! Thanks for being patient!

Hello Dear Readers. Please note that this story contains slangs from the 17th to 19th century that may or may not be confusing, or unheard of. Here are some definitions. I’ll also include them at the beginning of each chapter that contains them. Hope they’re helpful!

NOTE: Please forgive some of the grammatical errors. Pointing them out in the comments would be helpful :) Also, this story is intended, for at least the beginning to be written as the 19th century. As to say, I’m still learning. So, if the tenses don’t make sense, don’t worry. I am editing!! (as stated in the title XD)

If you like my story, please like, comment, share, review! Thank you and love lots,

glendataz1: So far I like. It is so different

khuckeby: Overall a good read. I enjoyed the story line and felt as if it kept an air of mystery. I would like to have seen the old cop visit again with more of an explanation for his first visit from his perspective.

WMMW: Dont even have words. LOVED IT

Luretha Fairley: She's so hurt, I dont know how she'll even get halfway normal.

Undrea: This book isn’t like anything I’ve read before truly a talented writer with a great and wide creative mind

Romi: A good one time read

B.Noble: Awesome concept and commentary on modern commercialism and it’s dark side, really well executed. The main character’s dialogue feels a little stilted a times, and his reactions occasionally seem a little melodramatic, but other than that a great read.

savannahwolnitzek: Super good story, I think the plot could be worked on a little bit and more character development on Logan and Anne at the beginning. With Logan being a Lycan he doesn’t come off as possessive or dangerous nor does the pack of Lycans that arrive later in the story. Super great writing style and I...
