|About the Book|
Given the burden of safeguarding a precious treasure at a tender age, Sabetia is placed squarely in the middle of a fantastical legend. Swords, demons, magic, a curse: it has everything a great epic tale should. All she needs to do is face the danger that could threaten the world if left unchecked. If only it were so simple. A hero could solve this problem, but she doesnt happen to be one.A good wife is obedient, patient, obedient, quiet, obedient, doting, and above all, obedient. Sabetia was raised to be a good wife. It makes her perfect prey, a perfect damsel in distress-Authors Note-This novel contains a depiction of domestic abuse. Some readers might be disturbed by it. Although the story is entirely fictional, the abuse is based on real accounts of real women. Ive done my best to keep the on screen brutality minimal and to not sensationalize or glorify it.I believe that silence is the greatest ally domestic abuse has in the world. Its my hope that stories like this one - of fantasy and adventure and magic - can shed light on the subject for people who otherwise wouldnt think about it very much.
