The Starless Girl: I thought I was just a normal girl living a normal life. Until the day my mother dies and everything changes.
My normal shifts, and nothing makes sense anymore.
Suddenly I’m seeing this glowing light in everything around me. I can’t explain it. It’s just…there. But when a dog made of darkness chases me, I somehow end up in a different world.
A world of magic.
Now I need to learn how to survive in this world, how to use my light to protect myself and those around me.
But when more creatures made of darkness start appearing, I’m caught in the middle of a war that has been raging within the realm for decades. Mysterious forces are tearing this world apart, and no matter how hard I try to convince myself that this is not my fight…
I just can’t walk away.
“The rider drew back a free hand, then a small silver-white blade flew from it.
The bright blade whizzed through the air. The red woman shrieked in rage, dissolving in a burst of water before the blade could strike. It spilled all over the planks of the bridge and dripped down into the canal.
The silver blade still flew. Kira couldn’t move, frozen with panic. And just as suddenly as she saw it coming for her, the blade disappeared.
Kira stared at the newcomer, listening to the sound of water dripping from the bridge. A moment’s hesitation—which way should she go?—and she leapt off the bridge, toward the rider, and back the way she had come. Her feet stumbled to a halt in the grass as soon as she was clear of the bridge.
Her rescuer was dismounting. Kira was too shaken to do more than watch. She was slowly coming to a realization about the strange feeling she’d been having but wasn’t ready to form the idea into real thought. Not yet.
The rider held a long silver staff with a shapely blade on the end, and the helmet was not the extent of the armor. Hardened leather extended out from the shoulders, rising at the ends. Arms, legs, and torso were covered in leather plates and straps, and the hands were similarly protected. A silver crescent-shaped buckle bound a white sash about the waist. Kira couldn’t take her eyes off the bladed weapon.”
