I am no longer in control of my own body.
Without warning and without my consent, my shape shifts and contorts into the half woman, half bird form of the Gamayun. That’s bad enough, but then I’m forced to deliver prophecies to Sirin, the immortal who guards the gates of hell. Messages she doesn’t care to hear, and she’s not afraid to use deadly force to silence me.
I’m starting to see things no one else can see. The last Gamayun died in a psych ward, having lost everyone she ever loved. I refuse to meet that same fate, even if that means lying to my sister and best friend.
The only person I can turn to is Sasha, the mysterious stranger who guarded the previous Gamayun. When I stare into those pale blue eyes, it’s hard to be objective. Can I really trust him? For every piece of advice he gives, there are ten more secrets he’s not telling me.
This Amazon bestseller is the first book in a five part series.

About the Author
Lara Chase was born and raised in rural Indiana surrounded by corn fields. Finding her environment somewhat boring, she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or writing stories in her head to entertain herself. Eventually she decided she should probably start writing some of them down. After graduating high school, Lara decided a change of scenery was in order. She lived in Oklahoma, Minnesota, and Illinois picking up the first bachelor’s degree she doesn’t use and a husband. The husband she’s quite fond of, but the states she wasn’t as taken with. She moved again, but this time she was smitten. It would likely take an act of Congress to remove her from Durham, North Carolina. Since relocating, Lara has acquired another bachelor’s degree that has proven to be merely decorative. She still gets restless at times, though, so she and her husband swap houses with families in other countries. Lara wrote some of the first lines of The Gamayun Prophecies hanging precariously out of a third floor apartment window in Italy trying to get a wireless signal. Luckily, writing at home is usually less dangerous. Her greatest threat there is the disgruntled cat who keeps sitting on her keyboard.
