    The Sin Eater's Daughter

    £7.99
    Twylla has a gift - or a curse. She can kill with a single touch. Now she's the court executioner, compelled to do the queen's bidding - and marry the prince. But when she meets a rebellious guard, Twylla starts to question everything she's been told...

    Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But although she's
    engaged to the prince, Twylla isn't exactly a member of the court.



    She's the executioner.


    As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches.
    Each month she's taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands
    on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with
    murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly
    makes him immune to Twylla's fatal touch, avoids her company.



    But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly
    swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he's able to look past
    Twylla's executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet
    Twylla's been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to
    people who cross the queen.


    However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla's problems. The
    queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires
    a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it
    takes to protect her kingdom? Or will she abandon her duty in favour
    of a doomed love?
