Big Story: Daughter of Light
Chosen By: Sam Graber
Goodreads Description: What is that mark? As the Shadonae rise in the west and war threatens the north, a young woman discovers she is not human . . . Rowen Mar finds a strange mark on her hand, and she is banished from her village as a witch. She covers the mark with a leather glove and seeks sanctuary in the White City. She lives in fear that if she touches another person, the power inside her will trigger again, a terrifying power that allows her to see the darkness inside the human heart . . . But the mark is a summons, and those called cannot hide forever. For the salvation of her people lies within her hand.
Why this story is so big to me: Daughter of Light is an incredibly gripping story and an example of good character development. Each of the characters has flaws and struggles that make them easy to relate to. The book also includes a unique and thought provoking style of “magic”, which requires the wielders to make sacrifices in order to help others.
