Seventeen-year-old Zayn has special powers she cannot control—powers that others fear and covet. Powers that cause the Templar Knights to burn Zayn’s mother at the stake for witchcraft. When a mysterious stranger tempts Zayn to become the first female member of the heretical Assassins, the chance to seek her revenge lures her in. She trains to harness her supernatural strength and agility, and then enters the King of Jerusalem's court in disguise with the assignment to assassinate Guy de Molay, her mother’s condemner. But once there, she discovers Earic Goodwin, the childhood friend who still holds her heart, among the knights—and his ocean-blue eyes don’t miss a thing. Will vengeance be worth the life of the one love she has left?

An Introduction to Zayn...

Zayn is the MC. She has powers that she’s just beginning to understand, powers that make her faster and stronger than any grown man. She’s been through some horrible stuff, and she’s learning to love herself for who she is.

A Day in the Life of My Character

Considering she’s an Assassin, Zayn’s day probably starts off with a high-protein breakfast. She practices some knife-throwing and archery, then sets off on a mission to kill.
