Jelena’s mother died giving her life, and she has been raised by an uncle who treats her as little more than a servant. But there’s something more to Jelena that not even she knows about. In a desperate attempt to save her people, an ancestor of Jelena’s stole the power of The Nameless One and placed it where he could never reach it—a thousand years in the future, trapped within Jelena.
To try to understand her ability, Jelena sets off to find her father, her only clue an exquisite ring with the figure of a griffin. But Jelena’s power is not the only thing that has awoken. Deep beneath a mountain an ancient evil stirs, and as Jelena searches for answers, it starts searching for her”.

Average Amazon Review: 4 and a half stars
Description: “Myranda is a young woman more interested in staying alive than being a hero. Orphaned by a continent-spanning war that has gone on for decades too long and shunned for failing to support it, she has been on the move since she was only a child. One can hardly blame her when she thinks that the chance discovery of a fallen soldier’s priceless cargo is the moment that will change her life. No one could predict just how great that change would be. It will lead her through an adventure of rebels and generals, of wizards and warriors, and of beasts both noble and monstrous. Each step of the way will take her closer to the truth of her potential, of the war, and of the fate of her world.”
