Author: Melinda Salisbury
Genre: High fantasy
Date of publication: February 24th 2014
Twylla lives in a castle, but although she is engaged to the prince no one speaks to her. No one even looks at her, because she is not a member of the court. She is the executioner.
No one will ever love her. Who would care for a girl with murder in her veins.
Even the prince, who is supposedly immune to her touch avoids her.
But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose playful smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla's problems.
