“…but I still wanted him to be my father. I imagined him realizing I was his long-lost daughter, being taken to the castle and becoming a princess to replace the lost one, saw myself bringing a smile back to the queen’s eyes. My mother hit me, hard enough to loosen one of my milk teeth, and told me never to say ‘my father’ again.”
From my review:
“As Daunen Embodied, Twylla has been chosen as a vessel for the daughter of the Gods. Bringers of life and death, the Gods have blessed Twylla. Though immune to poison, her touch is also lethal. As executioner, Twylla is tasked with bringing justice to traitors of the Queen of Lormere. Isolated because of her ability, Twylla has no choice but to obey the Queen’s orders, including marrying the Prince. But her friendship with her new guard causes her to question everything she’s chosen to believe in.” You can read my full review here.
