Book title: Daughter of Light (Follower of the Word Book 1)
Author: Morgan L. Busse
Starting age: 14
Banished from her village, Rowen Mar sets out to the White City in order to get a job that will offer her security… that is, if no one finds out her secret. But some things that are hidden should not be, and Rowen finds that the secret that has caused her so much pain is actually a gift.
But gifts can come with a price. When a friend of Rowen’s is severely injured, Rowen faces a life altering choice: watch him die, or reveal what she has striven to hide in order to save him. Either choice will bring about consequences.
