Melinda Salisbury: The Sin Eater's Daughter Melinda Salisbury: The Sin Eater's Daughter

Seventeen-year-old ​Twylla lives in the castle. But although she’s engaged to the prince, Twylla isn’t exactly a member of the court.

She’s the executioner.

As the Goddess embodied, Twylla instantly kills anyone she touches. Each month she’s taken to the prison and forced to lay her hands on those accused of treason. No one will ever love a girl with murder in her veins. Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to Twylla’s fatal touch, avoids her company.

But then a new guard arrives, a boy whose easy smile belies his deadly swordsmanship. And unlike the others, he’s able to look past Twylla’s executioner robes and see the girl, not the Goddess. Yet Twylla’s been promised to the prince, and knows what happens to people who cross the queen.

However, a treasonous secret is the least of Twylla’s problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies, a plan that requires a stomach-churning, unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what… (tovább)

„Will I help the villagers? I had asked the queen when I'd first been anointed. I had visions of standing on a podium singing in front of the realm, flowers thrown at my feet as I blessed the crowd, my sister gazing up at me with proud, shining eyes. "Will I visit them and sing for them?”
"Why would you do that? she had asked.
„So they know they are blessed.”
„Twylla, as you are Daunen Embodied, so the king and I are the worldly representatives of Naeht and Daeg. That is how the villagers know they are blessed, because we exist. Yours is a gift meant only for a chosen few to appreciate, because only a chosen few can understand it. Besides – ” she'd paused, looking at me with pity „ – we have to protect you. They will resent your good fortune, they will resent the fact that you've been chosen by the Gods to represent Daunen and to become our daughter one day. Better that you stay in the castle, where your guards and I can protect you from them,”
