Book 2 of The Mother’s Children
It’s sixteen years into the future and Mock and Grinda have remained with the Quarthi. Together still, theirs is a love that defies the odds. And yet they are not without trouble. Namely, their daughter, Zin.
Zin is almost a woman now. Born between two worlds—half Toth, half Quarthi—she finds herself isolated from the rest of the clan. What’s more, she’s surrounded by power and darkness—once firmly contained, now about to waken. Not even the shamri, with all their magical might, can predict what her future might bring.
Lord Aaron is fourth in line to the throne. Ordered by his uncle to rid Toth of the last of the natives, he draws together a force that will surely annihilate them. They should be beneath his notice, savages that they are, until he discovers Zin—startling and unexpected—and something begins to change in his heart.
Then there’s the darkness. The Morgrar. Insidiously creeping into their world. Only united can the Toths and the Quarthi hope to defeat it. Will they do so before it’s too late?
A story of worlds colliding. Of love conquering hate.
Trigger warning: rape themes, explicit sex and graphic violence.
