A Fairytale Fantasy: 

Trading Darkness [novel]

Once upon a time, a demon from the depths of the earth decided to seek the light of love. 

When human weakness destroys that love, a yearning for vengeance awakens within the ancient soul, and the fiefdom of Wildenburg becomes home to many kinds of men and monsters. A never-ending spiral of cruelty and sacrifice is set in motion. Over the centuries, wars, hunger, and witch trials cripple the little fiefdom, until one day, the reigning lord discovers that not even his own children are safe from the fiend his ancestors helped create. 

There is truth at the heart of every fairytale, but a fairytale can quickly turn into a nightmare, and only one person has the power to break the curse that has befallen the land: a young woman who has lived all her life in darkness. Can she find enough beauty within the beast to put an end to the killing?
