Polarities (The Pendomus Chronicles Book 2) - Chapters 1-3 Sample Carissa Andrews
Runa, the prophesied Daughter of Five needs to learn how to master herself, or all of Pendomus will perish. Separated from the only people who’ve had her back—as well as the love of her life, Traeton—Runa must go on a quest alone to uncover what it means to be human, as well as the Daughter of Five. Dropped in an unknown location, presumably still on the planet, she only has a monolithic book — the Caudex — as her guide, but it’s not giving up its answers easily. Will she be able to uncover the mysteries? The fate of the entire word rests on her shoulders & her ability to push through all of the challenges set her way. Will she learn what she needs to step into her role as savior? Or will everything be derailed by her desire to get back to her friends? Book 2 of the Pendomus Chronicles
Pendomus: Book 1 of the Pendomus Chronicles Carissa Andrews
After watching her father die, Seventeen-year-old Runa Cophem can't become a Cremator—she just can't. It doesn't matter what the aptitudes of the Helix say. They're dead wrong. Instead, she braves the inhospitable world outside the safety of the one place she's called home, only to be attacked by an invisible creature and left for dead. After being saved by a stranger, Runa realizes naivety is an understatement for how prepared she was. Not only was she incredibly sheltered—but she's been hunted by a madman since before she was ever born. She's special and all of Pendomus needs her. But how can she save the world when she can't even save herself? Tested by the fates, Runa must embrace the challenges handed to her—or perish along with Pendomus. This is Book 1 of the Pendomus Chronicles.
