The Sin Eater's Daughter

Seventeen-year-old Twylla lives in the castle. But no one even looks at her. Because Twylla isn't a member of the court. She's the executioner.As the goddess-embodied, Twylla kills with a single touch.  Even the prince, whose royal blood supposedly makes him immune to her touch, avoids her. But then a new guard arrives, and unlike the others, he's able to see the girl, not the goddess. Yet a treasonous romance is the least of Twylla's problems. The queen has a plan to destroy her enemies-a plan that requires an unthinkable sacrifice. Will Twylla do what it takes to protect her kingdom?
