ABOUT THE BOOK
“Mark my words, Evangeline; if you set foot outside this tower, you will surely die.”
Evangeline has spent her entire life hidden in an ancient watchtower, gazing out a window as the world passes her by. She heeds her mother’s warning closely, the truth hidden from her always.
When a young guard stumbles upon the tower, Evangeline’s life is changed forever. As she strikes up a secret friendship with the guard, she learns about the Kingdom of Lanaria and the mysterious plagues that haunt all who live there. But as she delves into the world she barely knows, not everything her mother says adds up. Will they find the truth before it’s too late?
Content Warning: Mild violence and light romance (Only one or two kisses). A bit of witchcraft and witchhunts are also mentioned in the novel (main villains), but not glorified.

“Come on, I know you can do it,” the girl coaxed, lightly patting the stone window-ledge. She pushed aside her long twists of blonde hair and watched the small brown-flecked bird. It resituated its grasp on a beakful of nesting material and eyed her warily. She considered reassuring the sparrow that it would be safe, but if the books lining the old walls were correct, the window had once been a murder hole, through which cannons and other killing contraptions were fired at enemies. She preferred to simply call it a window. The little sparrow hopped slowly up the tower wall, careful not to drop its bundle of dried brown grasses. She encouraged the bird once more to join her.
