PRIMARY GENRE: High Fantasy - Set in a completely different world, think Lord of the Rings, The Witcher, the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton, and G.A. Aiken’s Dragon Kin series., My Book is on the Darker Side of Things, but still has fantasy and romance elements. (Requires in depth trigger warnings for bloggers)

HEAT LEVEL: Make Me Blush - All the tension and at least one sex scene, but not super graphic. Think A Discovery of Witches, A Secret in Onyx by Jessica Florence, and A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

TRIGGERS: Mentions of Suicide, Addiction, Childhood Trauma, Explicit Sex Scene, Infant Death, Violence and death


"Too easily our secrets slip from the shadows."

To be a Marked means to be loyal and protected.

To be a Carved is to be the vilest of traitors.

Born branded as a Marked, Kaianne trusts the system. When her brother is born brandless, her misconceptions come crashing down. Now, an orphan and with only one uneasy ally, she turns to the Carved.

What she finds is purpose, a chance for revenge, and a family as strong as the one she lost. She will stop at nothing to protect them and further their growing rebellion.

If the talented disciples from the realms’ religious order cannot dissuade her, a prince certainly cannot stop her. Her once ally must either step aside, cut her down, or join her people’s crusade.

The Brand Edicts were meant to bring stability, but more people are born brandless as the decades pass. The Carved are growing more combative against the realms’ edicts. And like wounded animals, those in power are more dangerous than ever. It’s time for a change.
