by Sabbath Oshel Willowtree

Laverra Thana is a 25 year old woman who was born a Nightstalker in the Kingdom of Forsaken. She bears a family curse brought onto her and the Forsaken Kingdom by her father, King Seri. Since she was a small child, she was raised void of love and affection from her own family, and taught that Day-Walkers are the most unpredictable enemy and to be wry of them. Using this to her advantage, she becomes a no-nonsense knight. Through training and the kingdom tourneys, Laverra gains the title Banshee, she is given a quest to go towards Draken to assassinate a merchant. On her way there, she diverts from her path and meets Nicolae, a plant Rahj'I who finds her when she stumbles in his trap-filled woods. With him she discovers her own magic that laid dormant inside of her and a betrayal that will ultimately turn her world upside down. With Nicolae on her side, she meets new friends, new adventures, and carve her own path full of the unknown. Laverra will find love and laughter with her newfound companions and unexpected acceptance from those around her. She will continue her search within herself to find who she really is and fight a darkness that threatens the balance of life and death with the help of the dark book, "Nightshade".
