The Enlightenment

A malevolent king. A world in peril. One young woman to save them all.

When the town drunk, Faramond, tells Athena the truth about her parents’ deaths, her world collapses. It wasn’t accidental like she’d been led to believe; they were murdered because of her. Even worse, the killer has never stopped searching for Athena.

A sinister darkness has crept over the kingdom, slowly claiming the population of Galbar.

Faramond has secretly watched over Athena since she became orphaned, and now is training her to take on a most wicked foe. If anyone finds out she is The Guardian of the Kingdom, it will mean her death.

The enemy is at her doorstep and Athena must accept her destiny as the chosen one. If she doesn’t, Galbar will be devoured by the shadows.

The Enlightenment is the third book in The Kingdom of Shadows fantasy series by author Thomas Rouxville.
