Xlina’s move to Portland, Maine was supposed to be the start of a new life. A normal life. One that didn’t involve her magical-duty-obsessed druid father or her own legacy as a descendant of the Baku: an ancient creature that consumes nightmares.
But when the supposed social worker who pointed her toward Portland in the first place turns out to be not-so-human and puts a demon mark on Xlina’s soul, a normal life looks a lot less likely.
If she can survive what the demons have planned for her, maybe she can clean her soul. But to survive she just might need to start listening to charismatic necromancer Oxivius, who wants her to embrace her power instead of running from it. And that’s a hell of a lot scarier than a demon mark could ever be. $0.99 on Kindle.
