DAUGHTER OF SHADOW
A girl with dark magic who’s a threat to the kingdom. Three powerful men from the royal court. Why are they prepared to protect this daughter of shadow and take her to the heart of their realm?
The dragons are dead, the Ebon queen has destroyed the elven realms, and kingdoms are at war. The queen’s dark magic is growing in strength, and the Silvercrest kingdom is losing the battle against her. Three men are sent from the army’s stronghold to seek others who can aid their cause.
Leander, a high-ranking and domineering nobleman. Rohan, a fierce and seductive warrior. Galen, a gentle and passionate elven leader. Their task: recruit the most potent magic users from the shire towns and train them to join the crusade against the Ebon queen.
They never expected to find a daughter of shadow.
Calla’s time working at the apothecary in her small town is about to end, but not in the way she expected. On the day her magic skills are tested, she is revealed as a shadowmancer, a school of magic banned throughout the kingdom. A confused Calla faces a death sentence, but the three men are intrigued by the beautiful girl and her mysterious dragonkin pet and smuggle her from the town.
With no other choice, Calla journeys to the stronghold with the three captivating men. As they fight their way through enemy territory, the men discover that Calla’s power is more dangerous than they realised—and so is the bond this creates between them all.
Calla, daughter of shadow.
The girl with the dragon, accused of bewitching three powerful men.
Can her magic unite the kingdom or will she tear the realm further apart?
Silvercrest Guardians is the second book in the Daughter of Shadow fantasy romance series. The first book Dragon Soul must be read first.
Calla arrives at the stronghold with her three guardians, but not everything goes to plan. Her unusual magic skills arouse suspicion and, when Calla’s true powers reveal themselves, her life is in danger.
Leander attempts to reconcile his role as High Lord with his need to protect Calla—a girl his advisers tell him must die. Rohan struggles with his feelings for the girl he’s commanded to watch and kill if necessary. And Galen is determined to prove that there is more to Calla’s story while trying to make sense of his feelings towards a human girl.
All believe that Calla’s dragonkin Luin holds the key to who she is.
A new elven ally knows more about the situation inside the Ebon realm and promises the group answers. He introduces the four companions to somebody who reveals Calla’s hidden background and the source of her power.
Calla faces an impossible decision—risk her life by returning to the stronghold, or travel to a place of greater danger to fulfil a destiny that will change the kingdom forever.
Can Calla outrun the Ebon Queen’s forces and ensure the Dragon Flights are reborn?
The First-Born dragons died over a hundred years ago and their rebirth is the last hope in the realm’s battle against the Ebon Queen. Only Calla’s dragon soul can spark their life.
As fugitives, Calla and her men struggle to find people who can aid them on their journey to the dragon city. A visit to an elven court to request aid from Galen’s friend creates unexpected consequences and adds urgency to their travels. Running out of options, the party are forced to enter Devin’s unsavoury world of assassins and thieves to seek help from an unusual source.
The new party member’s fierce protectiveness of Calla causes problems as the men struggle to trust the man and his motives—especially Rohan. Can the group put aside their differences and unite to protect Calla?
The Ebon Queen’s darkness continues to spread throughout the lands as she searches for her Daughter of Shadow. The group carry a new weapon in the battle against her creeping death and decay, but will unleashing the dragons help defeat the Queen? Or will the First-Born herald a new problem for the human realm?
With Petrescu students behaving strangely, the conflict between the witches and vampires intensifies. And as Gilgamesh’s strongest shifters leave campus for secret meetings, Ash discovers that our world could be threatened by more than the Dominion.
An attack on the academy is imminent, but we don’t know precisely when. If my magic is more central to the situation than I realised, we need to act fast to save the academy and students.
But my biggest fear isn’t that my magic might fail—I’m terrified that someone I love will die.
I am the Ebon Queen’s daughter of shadow, but I am not hers.
She has threatened my men and if she harms them, I will unleash dark magic.
Would my shadows defeat the queen—or strengthen my bond to her instead?
The dragon flights have returned but they throw our plans into disarray. Their First-Born will destroy everything that stands between them and their desire to end the Ebon queen—and that could include me. Luin offers to help but I’m unsure he wants to become more than my guardian, and the men now question whether an alliance is possible with such creatures.
We return to our realm to make our next move but not all agree with Leander’s decision to return to the stronghold. Devin and Rohan fear for our lives should we walk through the gates, but we may have no choice. Is Leander’s position as High Lord enough to keep our group safe if we follow his plans?
The Ebon Queen’s forces have destroyed more of the land we travel through, and we face more challenges as we pass through the towns. Ebon elves and her dragon consort Cadenor pursue us as the queen steps up the crusade to bring me to her court. I fear that if she cannot take me, she will take my men.
I’m prepared to face the Ebon Queen and the darkness within myself, but instead she forces an impossible choice on me.
I am a daughter of shadow, and this is who I must become, or I could lose everything.
