Product description

Product Description

A young woman who must face her darkest fears to save her world, and the man who will do anything to protect her. An action-packed, emotion-filled Epic Fantasy Romance about the power of courage and love.
Tired of living a small life, Lilia moves to a bustling port and finds work as a cook. But her neat, ordered world crumbles the day a handsome, enigmatic stranger leaves a charm-stone in her safekeeping. 
Ever since Lilia started work at his father's inn, Dain has wanted her--only she isn't interested in him. But when Lilia's shadow starts acting strangely, and the stranger comes back to retrieve his charm-stone, Dain takes on the role of her protector.
What appears to be a humble hag stone--used by folk to ward off evil spirits--is in reality a powerful talisman. One that a secret brotherhood has spent five-hundred years searching for.
On an epic journey into danger and discovery, Lilia and Dain flee assassins who hunt the stone. The shadows are deepening and an ancient evil risks being unleashed upon the world. Lilia must face the darkness, and her own fears--or there will be no going home.
Book #1 of the Light and Darkness series, RULED BY SHADOWS is for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Grace Draven and Leigh Bardugo. If you like vibrant world-building, edge of your seat adventure, and a powerful love story, this romantic fantasy is for you. The novel was a finalist in the 2016 RWNZ Great Beginnings Contest.
