Dark Sight
by Ela Lourenco

Rays of gold-tinged scarlet glimmering like a halo over my sleepy little village. My mother’s strawberry-blonde curls gleaming as though on fire as the descending sun cast its last light through the windows of our small, cosy cottage… I still remember those images, although they are blurry now in my mind. It was the last time I saw my mother’s face. The last time I saw or felt the warmth of the sun… the last time I saw anything.
No one knows what happened or how. But when we woke the next morning there was nothing but a darkness none of us could have imagined. No stars, no moon, nothing to shed even a pixel of light or create a shadow. Chaos ensued, and panic. We waited, hoping that each new day would bring back the world we knew, but, as days turned to months, and months to years – as many of us succumbed to the dark madness and died I realised hope was gone.
Alone, but for a handful of other survivors, I go through the motions of my life if you can call it that, as I wait for the sickness to seize hold of my mind and end this existence I have been condemned to.

Essence

Katra is a Fae Hunter in a world once ravaged by a terrible war. Having lost all memory of her childhood and rightful identity, her duty is now to protect the tentative peace brokered by the varying races of the supernatural world. When an evil darkness begins to spread, draining young witches of their power, Katra must find a way back to her true past in order to save the future.

Enduring many trials as ever-increasing powers awaken within her, Katra must also struggle with the mixed emotions her new partner, Blade – a Black Dragon – is rousing within her. Together they must battle the shadows that plan to devour the world they know and prevent its decent into another thousand-year war.

Can Katra hold onto her strength as the truth of her very being begins to unravel? Can she bear the weight that ancient prophecy has placed on her young shoulders? Or is her destiny to regain her true self, only to lose the world she is sworn to protect?
