Dissident, Forbidden Things Book One
by Nikki McCormack
Ascard power can strengthen, heal and create. It also has great potential to destroy. Indigo’s country places strict limitations on the use of ascard so she must channel her ability into the healing arts or risk severe punishment. An orphan from a disgraced family, trapped by her father’s treason, she struggles find her place in society.
Then a mysterious stranger from a neighboring country asks for her help escaping his prison so he can bring an end to his emperor’s oppressive rule. His devotion to his cause and the passion behind his cool arrogance move her to use her power in forbidden ways to help him at the risk of being branded a traitor like her father.
