  • The Myrk Maiden: Daughter Darkness


    Book 1 in The Myrk Maiden Trilogy.

    What if you were born to destroy the world...not save it?

    15-year-old Twilight dreams of a better life away from her uncaring family, longing for purpose and adventure. When her humdrum existence is soon shattered forever, she is thrust into the wickedly enticing realm of the Shadows, a society of sorcerers who look to her as their living salvation from the light. As darkness seeps into Twilight's soul, she comes to live by three words - "maim and kill." In this brutal coming-of-age tale, young Twilight finds herself tangled in a twist of existential crises, divine dangers, and monstrous mishaps as she navigates the various bends and turns of her new life, always wondering whether she should obey her "true nature" and remain in the dark - or fight for a glimpse of light beyond the Shadows' compound walls.

    Of The Myrk Maiden: Daughter Darkness

    The Myrk Maiden: Daughter Darkness acts as a coming-of-age quest wherein Twilight discovers her true identity, riding the line between what defines light and dark, blurring the differences between good and evil as a classic dichotomy.

    Alyssa Charpentier's Daughter Darkness doesn't read like a story from a first-time novelist. The Myrk Maiden is no lite fare, and Charpentier writes with a potency that is thrilling and smacks of a seasoned, accomplished author. Attention, YA fantasy readers; there's a new author in town. And. You. Must. Read. Her.
