“Without your power, you are nothing.” His lips hovered too close, scant millimeters from… more. “You don’t know how lucky you are to be mine.”
They came to conquer, to see the great city of Tritan on her knees. Her people in chains.
I watched it all burn from a seat of untouchable power. Safe in the many arms of the forest as my heart charred black and the darkness took root. My sacred calling to a dead Goddess rejected, I am sustained by the forest's ancient, sleepy strength. Fed by wild ki, the whispers are soothed.
The urge to savage the conquerors lays dormant, for not even he can touch me here, where my every whim is law.
But Captain Asher Rawlings is a resourceful man, and though it’s been years since he’s so much as set eyes upon my face, he hasn’t given up the hunt for a rare and dangerous thing.
He wants me.
And he’ll never stop.
Not until my knees are sullied and my skin is marked—and my limitless power belongs to him.
But no matter how many times I fall, or how much I lose, he refuses to see the truth of the monster he's unleashed... After all... he's given me a thirst for vengeance...
About the author
Raised by her awesome parents in Canada's snowy north, Myra learned perseverance from an early age. She learned to speak in third person, via extensive reading as a child, because... well... Northern Canada gets a LOT of snow. And when one isn't snowboarding, building quinzees, or waking up to teddy bears frozen to the floor, one tends to read about places that are warm--even if being cold is preferable to being hot, every-damn-time.
All that reading gave Myra the gypsy bug. So, after college, (where she majored in professional gypsying) she moved to a ski resort in British Colombia to be a ski bum and chase the winter, because the cold was in her bones and it never bothered her anyway. (Points because Elsa of Frozen is her spirit animal?)
But then life caught up with her, as it does, and now she's stuffed full of enough life experience to write until transcendence (where she will be first in line to get a sweet android body and travel the universe until the end of time). So that's what she does, when she's not listening to the voices or taking apart the electronics just to see their insides.
