Dina didn't ask for this.  She just wants to be a normal girl and have friends and play games.  But now that is all behind her.  She, like her mother, is a shamer.  No one wants to look at her.  A shamer can make people remember those things that they would rather forget.  A shamer can reveal all the shameful deeds done.  So Dina knows no one will look at her or want to be with her again.  But now her mother has been called upon to go to Dunark to prove the guilt of young Nico.  But there is a problem.  Nico is not guilty and Dina's mother would never lie about something so serious.  But it is very important to Drakan to have Nico convicted.  He tricks Dina into coming to Dunark and now holds Dina and her mother captive.  When Dina's mother is sentenced to die for witchcraft, Dina knows it is up to her to save her.  This is the first book in the new series Shamer Chronicles.
