Ravenlight Cycles Book 2
by Melissa Riddell
Young Adult Fairy Tales
A woman determined to protect her heart, and a man willing to test its limits. Will his secret break her curse or doom them for eternity?
From the day my tribe was cursed by a rival shaman two hundred years ago, my life has been nothing but a dreary, loveless existence. The one day I can shed my raven form, I am reminded all over of the pain and loss of those I had to leave behind. I’ll never subject myself to that kind of agony again—even if it swaggers in with a ridiculous Stetson hat and talks with a cute, southern drawl. Besides, what man would want to be with me when they learn my secret?
A fresh start sounded good, especially after the horror I’d witnessed—and created—while in the military. Keeping a steady job working for Revan Chogan, having a roof over my head, and putting an end to the blood-soaked nightmares is my version of heaven. Enter Imala, who’s gorgeous, sharp-tongued, and cold like frigid icicles. I think she’s warming up to me, though. But if she gets a glimpse of what I keep buried deep inside, will she love me—or kill me?
