The world has long forgotten them, but their descendants live on, not wholly mortal or god, but something in between…
At the dawn of the sixth century, in the aftermath of her mother’s brutal execution, Mara Black is forced to flee the only life she has ever known.
Mara can tell she’s different, but isn't sure why. After she encounters two mysterious strangers, she discovers her secret is but a drop in an ocean of many. She is a Dia, a descendant of ancient gods, and her mother sacrificed herself to protect Mara from their past.
Summoned by an uncle she didn't know existed, Mara thinks she’s found the family she’s always wanted, and Corbin, a love she never thought possible. But not everything is as it seems. Her uncle has other motives for protecting her, and her mentor, Malcolm, becomes so jealous, he’ll do anything to get what he wants.
When tragedy strikes, and the true darkness among them comes to light, Mara discovers that sometimes love can give you everything, and obsession can take it all away. With her powers gone, and destiny calling, she has to look deep within to find the courage to save herself. Mara, along with Corbin and her new found family, must fight to get back what was taken, or die trying.

I did not know what to expect as I am generally not a fan of Historical's but this book kept me glued to the pages. The Story Tammy Farrell weaved was vivid and amazing. Mara must face many obstacles starting with the heart wrenching beginning where her mother is taken as a prisoner accused of witchcraft and sacrifices herself to save Mara. Can Mara face all the obstacles that are thrown at her? What will become of Mara and Malcolm? From the characters to the setting the world created for us to travel is amazing. This is a Phenomenal beginning to what is going to be an EPIC Series. With twist and turns and learning to accept who you are this story will appeal to many.
Mara called upon by her Uncle learns allot of her past and must learn to accept that things are not always as they appear and I am eagerly awaiting book 2.

Tammy Farrell grew up in Orangeville, Ontario Canada where she discovered her love of writing, and all things related to Edgar Allan Poe. She now lives with her husband and four fur babies in Greenville, South Carolina, where she teaches pre-GED English and attempts to learn French when she isn’t busy writing.
