Blurb/Synopsis:
A girl with a past she tries to forget, and a future she can’t even imagine.
Leonie Woodville wants to live an unremarkable life. She wants routine, she wants repetition, she wants predictability. So when she explodes in a blaze of light one morning on the way to her college, it’s enough to put a real crimp in her day.
And things only get weirder…
Leonie learns from her father that she is last of the Pulsar, a phenomenally powerful member of a magical species called the Chosen. It will be her sole duty to protect the Imperium, a governing hierarchy, from all enemies, and to exceed the reputation of the Pulsar before her. So – no pressure there, then.
Leonie is swept away from her rigorous normality and taken to a world of magic. There, she is forced into a ceremony to join her soul to a guardian, Korren, who is both incredibly handsome and intensely troubled, a relationship for which ‘it’s complicated’ just really doesn’t cut it.
But Leonie is soon to learn that this ancient world is no paradise. With violent dissidents intent to overthrow the Imperium, and dark entities with their own agenda, she and Korren find themselves caught in a war where they will have to overcome their differences if they are to survive.



Excerpt
LEONIE

Maybe crying is all I’m good at, maybe being a pawn for others to use is all I’m meant for, but I want to do more than sit here and be prey. I don’t want to ever have to watch the people I love die. I don’t want to ever sit helpless and grovelling. Not again—ever. I’ll become strong. Strong enough to stand up against the people who seek to make me crawl. Strong enough to be the Pulsar I was born to be. Strong enough to be the girl of myth and legend.
