Torch of the Defiler
The Devourer Book 1
by Julie McCord
Genre: Epic Dark Fantasy
You can't hide from destiny forever.
Lorothiel has spent her life hidden away among the elves with her cousin Loren. But when sorcerer-king Adran starts laying waste to his neighbors, Prince Eric crosses the haunted no-man's land surrounding the elven forest in a quest for the magic that can save his people.
Magic Lorothiel carries as her birthright.
All magic comes at a price, and as ancient hatreds re-awaken, the cost will rise.
