Speculative fantasy dystopian YA novel based on Irish mythology about the power of redemption and discovering your worth.
Seventeen year-old Mayra’s job as the silent but deadly lackey for a feared mobster prevents her from escaping the state control of the authoritarian Raven’s Legion, powerful Fae who oppress what remains of humanity at every turn. When her extraordinary abilities that have served as her method of survival are exposed, she’s whisked away by the Legion, who publicly label her as a lost changeling. Accepted as an honorary member of the Fae royal court, Mayra is kept under tight scrutiny by the High Queen, whose masked assassin watches her every move.
Unwilling to be a pawn and determined to flee the country, she seeks to get rid of her power with the help the human rebellion led by the legendary warrior, Scáthach. But bloodthirsty forces of evil would do anything to gain grains of dark magic, and she finds herself hunted by the Fae, who hunger for the power that has been bestowed upon her. As secrets from her past are unearthed, Mayra comes to realise that despite the immense darkness within her soul, she has in fact been called to become one of the deliverers of humanity.
