Meikah's family are templars, as far from necromancers as it's possible to be. When she learns that not only can she see the dead, but also wield magic, she fears what the future holds. She doesn't want to become a necromancer, or a dark blade, but there seems to be few choices now available to her. It doesn't help that people have begun to treat her like she's an evil necromancer and rumours have started. Nor does she believe Kellan when he says she belongs with the Assassins Of The Dead. They seem to be a mismatched group that include nobles, an assassin, a sorcerer, a shapeshifter and a vampire. Not at all like templars. And if she was to join them, the rumours will never end and her family might actually disown her.This story was written by an Australian author using Australian spelling.
