THE MELDLING tells the story of Suzanna, a woman who hides a strange secret within her soul, and her awakening into a war-torn realm. More
She was rescued from a darkened dungeon; brought out into the light with no memory of her past. Her only certainty was her name: Suzanna.
Her flesh marks her as a daemon, one of a race of deadly warriors locked in a war with their mortal enemies, the daevas, that has scoured the surface of the world. But her soul is something more, something that sets her apart from her own kind and lets her speak the language of humans.
She exists between the world of the human knights who saved her life, and the fragmented memories of her former self. Drawn into events beyond her control, Suzanna must accept her past and finally learn who or what she really is, underneath her daemonic skin.
She will become the key to ending the war - but will it be with the destruction or the salvation of the daemonva?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a very good story. I connected to the characters really well. There was a lot of action, which kept me enthralled. My only complaint is that the author needed an editor. The writing threw me off track numerous times. I had to keep rereading parts of the book just to understand what the author was trying to convey. This book would have been a five star rating, if written better.
