The Shadow Walker Trilogy: The Past Bites
Orin is an escaped slave. Selene is the daughter of Ahre, a Supreme from whom Orin has escaped. They are in love and want nothing more than to be free of Ahre and live the life they choose, for although Selene is Ahre's daughter she too has suffered imprisonment and isolation.
Ahre is a sorceress with powers that maintain her position of absolute ruler of her people. She revels in torture and death, using her powers to subjugate all the people and ensure there is no dissent.
Selene, because of inherited powers, is also a sorceress. In total contrast to her mother, she is loving and kind and cares for the people. However, she is not yet powerful enough to overcome her mother.
Orin and Selene learn to become a formidable pair, buoyed by their love for each other, but can they break free of Ahre and her allies?
