As the Shadonae rise in the west and war threatens the north, a young woman discovers she is not human . . .
Rowen Mar finds a strange mark on her hand, and she is banished from her village as a witch. She covers the mark with a leather glove and seeks sanctuary in the White City. She lives in fear that if she touches another person, the power inside her will trigger again, a terrifying power that allows her to see the darkness inside the human heart . . .
But the mark is a summons, and those called cannot hide forever. For the salvation of her people lies within her hand.
Book one of the Follower of the Word series.
The war in the north is over, but the war for all the Lands has just begun. As the Shadonae solidify their hold on the city of Thyra, Rowen Mar, the last Eldaran and savior of the White City, awakens to find herself hunted by those she has saved.
Meanwhile, the assassin Caleb Tala finds himself in the presence of the Word. The time of reckoning has come, and he must pay the price for all the lives he has taken. But in his moment of judgment, Caleb is given a second chance to change his life.
These two hold the power to save the Lands from the Shadonae. One must escape slavery, and one must choose to forsake everything before the world is consumed in darkness.
Book two of the Follower of the Word series.
The great city of Thyra has fallen and shadows spread across the land. Rowen Mar, the last Truthsayer, is taken before the Shadonae. But the Shadonae are not who she thought they were, and now they want to claim her as their own.
Caleb Tala, former assassin and prince, is now a Guardian of mankind. Exiled from his country, Caleb wanders the desert in search of his mother’s past and clues to who he is.
These are the last days of the Eldaran race. Rowen and Caleb must find their way along the dark path set before them by their ancestors: to heal what was wounded and love where hatred grows. But the road is narrow and the darkness beckons. If either of them fails, all will be lost…
And the human race will be no more.

Powerful, intriguing & captivating. Can’t wait to read more!
Sounds like a really cool story. 😀
Oh yes, this is awesome!
Very nicely written summary! Intriguing plot-line. Moreover, you have good sentence structure. I love the spacing and the use of simple sentences interspersed with longer sentences. I look forward to reading the actual novel. It’s about time there was more Christian fantasy like this.
Wow. What an intriguing premise! I look forward to reading it. It sounds amazing.
When is the next book due to be out?
Hi Meg! Welcome 🙂 I already have book 2 written and am now working on the rewrites and edits. Right now it looks like it will be coming out early next year.
Awesome, I can’t wait 🙂 I love reading your blog by the way (it tends to smack me in the face just when I need it lol).
Haha, thanks Meg. I hope the “smacking” doesn’t hurt too much 😉 Most of what I write is what I’m thinking about or going through.
I am intrigued as well. I will check to see if your book is available via Kindle.
Hi Peter 🙂 Welcome!
Just finished the book! Love it, love it, love it! The moment when Rowen meet the Word . . . beautiful. I’ve already reread that part several times 😉 I can’t wait for the next one, btw what a cliff hanger!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed Daughter of Light. Than you for stopping by and letting me know, those kinds of notes really encourage me!
The next book, Son of Truth, is set to release April 1st, 2013, so not too long of a wait 😉
I Just finished Daughter of Light.. and I am hanging on the edge screaming “what about Nierne”!!! 🙂 and a host of other questions. It’s great! Son of Truth is just what I wanted to hear. Loved watching Rowen face her fear!
Thanks Connie :). Not too long of a wait! But then there is book 3…
Just out of curiosity, which character would you say is the most like you?
I would say each character has a small part of me in them, but the character who is most like me is Rowen. Probably not a surprise 😉 Thanks for asking!
