A Touch of Silence
In the peaceful world of the domains, only one crime results in swift and sure execution: being born with the curse of dual consciousness.
But Megen doesn’t feel cursed. Sharing her mind with Lyros is a secret joy that takes her away from the doldrums of working as a servant girl. Why then does violent paranoia claim others who are cursed, and leave her immune?
The truth begins to unravel when she falls in love. Megen discovers that, through her touch, she is able to see into Tommis' mind; what she finds there turns her life upside down. Not only is he cursed in the true sense of the word, but only her touch soothes him, forcing her to experience his inner chaos, again and again.
In her attempts to save him from a break with reality and the executioner’s axe, Megen and her gift are discovered. Caught between those who would stop at nothing to eradicate all traces of this illness and those who would use her to control it, Megen – without care for her own life – is sure of only one thing: her love for a boy who is slowly being driven mad from the inside out.
