The Sibylline Saga – Book One
Gwen is plagued by nightmares that may or may not be prophecies. In her visions, she uses her coercive abilities to spread brutality through villages she’s never seen. Unsettled by the bloodlust in her dreams, Gwen is grateful that the elderly scholar, Michael, raised her in isolation in the Sacred Wood.
When a band of brigands attacks in the night, Gwen’s quiet life in the Sacred Wood comes to an abrupt and violent end. Injured and afraid, she must depend on a group of emissaries traveling north to the capital city of Valheid, led by the enigmatic Johnny. When a thief threatens her new friends, Gwen’s vow to never use her abilities is put to its first test. What harm can one little coercion do, if it’s for the greater good?
Gwen’s choice triggers a cascading chain of events that can never be undone. She discovers that Johnny did not find her by accident in the Sacred Wood, and that Michael had been lying to her for years. But her quest for the truth brings more than just answers. It draws the eye of enemies hiding in plain sight.
Desperate to protect her newfound family in Valheid, Gwen must break her vow again and again. And one compromise at a time, she grows closer to becoming the monster she sees in her nightmares.
Raised in solitude in the Sacred Wood, Gwen never knew she had a family. But when tragedy reunites them, she must learn to live and love among her people. And above all else, she must not hide who and what she is.
