The Books of Norngard
Seventeen year old Meruself brought death and suffering to Norngard, a world where once none existed. Now exiled from her home, shunned, and withering under the weight of her shame and regret, a terrible beast pursues Meruself's every step.
Desperate to set things right, she accepts a quest that will threaten her survival, challenge her beliefs, endanger all those she loves, and lead her down a path into the dark unknown to face the very thing she fears the most.
As the Dark Reaping closes in, Meruself must find the strength to face her past and the courage to embrace her greatest fears, for it may be the only way she can ever go home again.
The journey begins in the haunted Hella Wood...
