Summary

An Oath Sworn. A Struggle Engaged. A Sacrifice Required. 
When Mara, a trained Oathtaker, is drawn by the scent of the Select to battle underworld beasts summoned by the powers of evil to destroy the guardians of life, she swears a life oath for the protection of her charge. 
Armed with a unique weapon and her attendant magic, and with the assistance of her Oathtaker cohorts, two ancients, and a spymaster, Mara seeks safety for her charge from one who would end Oosa's rightful line of rule, and from assassins who endeavor to bring ruin to the land. 
As Mara puzzles to decipher ancient prophecy concerning her charge, as she is haunted with memories of her own past failings, she discovers the price her oath will exact. 
To renounce her word would be treasonous; to fail, ruinous; to persevere, tortuous. 
Abiding by an oath requires sacrifice.

    What would you get if you mixed Edgar Allan Poe, Alfred Hitchcock and Stephen King? The answer might be something resembling Howard Phillips (H.P.) Lovecraft (1890-1937), an extremely influential poet and author who mixed science fiction, horror and fantasy into a subgenre known as weird fiction. Perhaps none encapsulates weird fiction like his creation of the monster Cthulhu, which has been used by other writers to spawn a fictional universe and mythology centered around Cthulhu.

    Aria is living the life of a healer, a position that's been forced on her to keep her away from her dreamwalker abilities and her true desire of being a warrior. But there's one dream that refuses to leave her alone- a man in a barren landscape of sand and rocks and ur'gel, deadly creatures designed for war.    
       
    But as she fights to learn how to hone her dreamwalker gifts in order to save this man who she feels an odd connection to, her world folds in around her. Her village is attacked and her brother is taken. The ur'gel demand one thing: bring Beru.   
    The man from her dreams.  
       
    But all the information she has about the man called Beru is that he was a traitor to the great hero, Onen Suun, who imprisoned the fallen over two centuries ago. If she frees this enemy in order to save her brother, how could she live with herself?    
       
    But if she doesn't and her brother dies…   
       
    Save her brother or start a war. The decision is hers.
