Wings of Honor (Warriors of Aragnar 1)
If everything was taken from you, would you still be able to stand? For many decades, stories of betrayal, darkness, and blood have surrounded the mysterious land of Aragnar. Leagues away, these stories seem quite distant on Whitecliff Island, but not for long. When a young woman is thrust into a dangerous series of events, her destiny is forever changed. The choices she must make will not only alter her life, but those of everyone around her. From the time Maria Fellbane was a young child, she had always known she was different. Scorned and rejected; her people are hated for following and believing in an all-mighty ruler many say does not exist. Haunted by a fiery past and hurt by tragic loss, Maria lives by only one creed; protect her family at all costs and follow the One True King. When the tyrannical King Raveyn seeks to destroy her and her people, their fragile lives are turned upside down in a desperate race to escape the coming storm. When everything she knows and loves is taken from her, Maria must make a choice that will determine her fate and destiny. Will she trust a mysterious band of winged warriors who wish to bring freedom to her land, or will her family and everything they believe in be lost forever? Wings of Honor is a tale of persecution, trials, and courage. It asks a simple question; what would you do if everything was taken away from you? If every mask and lie was stripped away, leaving only who you really are, who would you be?
