A Choice for Essence

Book One of the Essence Chronicles 

The Land Above is not as beautiful as it appears. Sheltered within the palace nursery for the first seventeen years of her existence, Essie knows nothing of the darkness lurking behind the bright exterior. During a night of playful rule-breaking and exploration, she stumbles upon the truth when a brutal murder unfolds right before her eyes.

Horrified to learn innocent souls are being preyed upon, the young godling seeks to help and protect those in danger. That means defying the gods and goddesses, a venture that could ruin her reputation in the godly court, damage her relationships, and even cost her, her life. 

Essie has a choice. What does she choose to lose?

"Oh, darling. I wish others thought like you. But I'm afraid, you're the only flower in a garden full of weeds."
