SHADOW IN STARLIGHT by SHANNAH BIONDINE
2002 PRISM AWARD Finalist:
2nd place - FANTASY
The shadow. A Waniand mercenary, cowled in black, dark and
forbidding. Preece the Warmonger, also called the Royal
Blade. Rumors about him suggest the creature beneath the
black cowl is not entirely human.
Starlight. A woman of bright gentian tresses and rare
beauty, promised in marriage to the prince regent of
another realm. Given in wedlock not as a cherished prize
but as a secret weapon meant to topple the reigning
monarchy...Unless the Warmonger can find a way to prevent
the marriage, even if it means risking both their lives in
an act of outright treason. Even if it means losing Moreya
herself, his memory, his very reason for living.
Yet Destiny has waited for just this turn in the wheel of
time and human events. A prophecy must be fulfilled, the
future of ancient bloodlines secured. Preece must return to
reclaim all he once lost - including Moreya, the Yune
beauty with the trusting innocence of a child and the
courageous heart of a dragon.
