Fires in Winter
Here's my synopsis:

Ellen Henley. The mage, orphan, Alliance troop, avenger and curse-holder. She is determined to uncover the truth of her curse, to find 'Him', who threatens to destroy everything she has ever fought for and to avenge her foster-mothers death. Mix in a creepy child, a guardian, a dead curse-holder and a strange message, and you get the vague idea.

The amount of work I shall have to put into this novel is obscene, I may have to split it into two, so I write two novels, who knows?
