The Omaja Stone
by Jayla Jasso
Jiandra Stovy doesn’t have time to be a heroine—she’s a hardworking farm girl with younger siblings to raise. But when a magical stone mysteriously interjects itself into her life, possessing powers for good that only she can wield, she knows she’s the only one who can save her country and her queen. She needs to hunt down an assassin before he strikes again, and bring him to justice so that Villeleia can stop quarantining the poor refugee population within its borders. Problem is, when she runs into a tall, muscular Nandal along the way, she’s a little too distracted by his exotic silvery eyes to notice he’s been tracking her with dangerous intentions.
Yajna’s on a desperate mission to assassinate Villeleia’s queen and start a war, but when a beautiful peasant girl with a savior complex crosses his path, he has trouble following through on his plans. He’s a wanted man, and Jiandra has only to use the Knowing power of the stone around her neck to recognize it. He knows he should kill her and take the stone before that happens, but it’s difficult to murder the one person in Villeleia who’s trying to alleviate the suffering of his people. Especially when she feels like pure heaven in his arms.
