The Owl’s Mark
Genre: YA fantasy, dark fantasy, alternate history
Synopsis: Donovan Ashford is out for blood. As a child, he swore revenge on Lord Halifax, the aristocrat who brutally executed his family. Now at seventeen, he kills traitors on behalf of the Gallian Empire. With an owlish monster named Blighter at his side, he brings their illegal witchcraft to a gruesome end. But in secret, he plots against the Empire, and waits for the day when he will assassinate Lord Halifax. To do this, he will risk his power at court, his life, and his very soul.
But just as Donovan prepares to put his plan into motion, he is sent on a mission with Lady Harriet, daughter of Lord Halifax. She is beautiful and deadly, a kindred spirit. As she and Donovan face danger after danger together, he must make a choice. Will he remain loyal to Blighter, the monster who vowed to help him destroy the Halifax clan? Or will his growing admiration of Harriet turn to love—or worse still, mercy?
