Into the Darkness (Special Edition) - Cathell Series #1
Publisher: Mighty Quill Books
An unimaginable evil, bound by the gods to the sword Aeryn needs to repay a blood debt to her father.
Aeryn Ravane chose the gray path of a sell-sword over that of a hero like her father. When he died, though, she chose to fulfill her debt to him by finishing his last quest. She never suspected his search for the sword bound by a curse would open a dark portal and tie the fate of an innocent to her own.
The waifish girl stalking her looks harmless, but when Aeryn confronts her, Theo spins a series of tales faster than a bard, leaving Aeryn suspicious about her motives. She reluctantly lets the girl tag along. But when they're attacked by the ancient evil bound to the sword, it's clear they won't survive unless they help each other.
Now Aeryn must make a choice -- try to save Cathell from what she unleashed or walk away and save herself and the girl.
