Thia Bransdottir is shunned for being half Fallen, a race feared by many. She tries to disguise her lineage, but her lilac eyes make it impossible. When her Father is killed, she is taken to the cloister to be a servant of her faith. Jinaari Althir is sworn to protect Thia from the disgraced half of her heritage. Under his holy vows, he must keep others from killing her for their prejudice and using her for her power. He must succeed, there is no room for failure. Trust for someone like Thia is difficult.
Jinaari may say he is there to protect her, but can he truly do his best when he knows she is of the Fallen? Will Thia stay safe in order to fulfill her purpose or is she fated to die for her origins?
K. M. Warfield crafts a story that is compelling as different characters deal with banishment, shame, courage, and unexpected strengths. From warlocks and unusual homecomings to secrets that bind a disparate group of friends, Warfield’s ability to build a story based on changing political and social environments creates a tale that’s hard to put down.- Mid-West Book Review
If you’re looking for a solid, low-fantasy book with some twists and turns I highly recommend Scales & Stingers. It’s an easy read you won’t want to put down! – Amazon review
The world building by this author is amazing, and the story flowed with such ease that I found myself gliding through the pages with no interruption or stumbling. – Amazon review
An ancient relic. Two solitary quests. A chance to prove one’s worth.
After an intense battle against the malicious Goddess, Lolc Aon, and freeing the Fallen citizens of Byd Cudd, Jinaari and Thia are presented with new challenges while in the public eye. Even though Thia has been granted nearly unlimited healing power through the God Keroys, many still doubt her because of her Fallen lineage. Jinaari does his best to support her, but his lessons are cut short after his sister is kidnapped.
Faced with life altering obstacles, will Jinaari keep his vow to protect Thia even from afar? Can Thia learn to trust herself and win over the public? Or will it be too late?
