MISTRESS OF DEATH by JEYA JENSON
Dria of Abignale was born to serve the Dragon. Upon the eve
of her twenty-first birthday, Dria will ascend into her
position as a first tier acolyte in the cult of Ouroborous.
The magic she will wield is a powerful one and she is
destined to join the battle between her cult and those who
would deny her people's right to survive.
During her ascention ceremony, Dria is kidnapped by a band
of mercenaries who seek her execution. Dria's fate seems
sealed until rescue arrives in the form of Spencer Devauex,
a Kestrex guardian sworn to protect human kind against
Ouroborous' legions. The Dark Age war haslong raged between
his and Dria's people--those who would decimate the human
race and those who would protect their right to survive.
Half human-half Sclydian, Spencer walks in two worlds, but
belongs to neither. Because of her ties to Ouroborous'
legion, he doesn't entirely trust Dria's pleas for freedom,
believing she might choose to embrace her power and return
to the cult that spawned her.
Navigating the shadowy netherworld of the occult, Dria
struggles to find the truth in the lies that have long
engulfed her life. In her heart she knows only one man can
help her find the path she was destined to walk--and find
the love she's never known.
