BOOK DESCRIPTION

This is the story of Montayna, a young woman born of both light and dark magik who never knew her parents.

She earns her freedom with a bit of magik even she was hardly aware of, but her skill is growing and she needs to find answers. Who is she? Where did her powers come from? To find those answers she sets out on a journey of discovery, both inward and outward, of dark mysteries as well as light. Will she master them, or they her?

She is inexperienced and faces incredible dangers in the course of her quest to defeat the darkness that is spreading across the land.

Her journey takes her through a landscape of wizards, elves, faeries and wolves, as she throws herself headlong into the fray to rid her world of the threat by the Dark Lord.

It is a journey that will eventually change Montayna as well as the world around her.
