Daphne Mooreabout this book: CE 2644.
Centuries ago, the invasion of Ridden, body snatching spirits, caused the Fall.
Now in North America, the Union, the government that followed Canada, Mexico, and the United States, controls a huge territory. Some of its population live safe in enclaves, technologically advanced areas; the rest live Outside, at risk from bandits, magical creatures, and Ridden.
Alys Xoticos-Quinn, originally from a border nation, is magically compelled to troubleshoot for the Union. Her latest mission uncovers corruption and possession at the highest levels. The political fallout could claim her son… and her life.
After surviving an assassination attempt by the Wendigo, a compelled spirit of eternal hunger, Alys teams up with a mysterious mage, Walker, who also fixes Union's problems. But as they search for clues to the terrifying possessions, Alys's enemies work to make see them dead.
This book came from a what if idea- what could happen if magic returned, and invaders were magically called from another dimension?
Aly's personality determined the title: she wants to be free, and her solutions to problems often involve stabbing something. She's a fun character. I enjoyed writing her and crating the world; I hope you enjoy it as well!
