A dark corruption lies at the heart of the city. She must find the courage to accept her magic and defeat it.

Nalani hasn't felt like she fitted in since her beloved father left home over a decade ago. Her magic is unique, and her mother is distant, fearful of her power. Nalani longs to regain her affection and to finally belong, but when her magic surges to life, demanding that she leave her home, Nalani obeys, hoping this might prove a new beginning.

In the rich and vibrant city of Karas, she finds unexpected friendship, but also dark secrets and a ruthless adversary.

Nalani and her newfound friends follow a trail that they hope will lead to the source of the dark energy spreading across the land. If she can destroy it, she might finally discover a means to leave her magic behind and find a place for herself.

But not everything is as it seems, and Nalani must learn to accept her magic and trust her friends before the corruption overpowers them all.

Filled with dark magic, dangerous secrets, a strong female lead, and hard-won friendships, The Shard is the first book in the young adult, coming-of-age epic fantasy Darkling Duology. Buy The Shard to capture a fragment of hope today.
