Okay, made a few tweaks.
Healing the sick and infirm comes naturally to Keirann. But so does pounding soldiers into the dirt on a sunny afternoon.
The Festival of the Stag King looms closer and with it the ceremony that will cement her future as High Priestess, creating in her a rising panic. Whenever possible, Keirann avoids her duties as an acolyte to the Faithful of Illyia.
Her abusive father delivers a devastating ultimatum. Succeed in following her mother’s footsteps as High Priestess or be forced into an unwanted marriage. The only problem is, Keirann doesn’t believe in the goddess. The Faith has only ever caused her heartache and loss. She blames it for her mother’s death. Keirann wants to live a life of her choosing, as a healer or a soldier, free from the pressures of family and society. Seeing no alternative, she decides to run.
Before she can escape, Keirann accidentally releases a magical stone, the event witnessed by many. Village folk begin calling her the Feyling – a creature of ancient myth, said to have bartered her soul and lover to seal away unimaginable evil.
Soon after, agents of calamity and war come for Keirann and the stone – wanting its power for themselves. When someone close to Keirann is nearly killed and an innocent family destroyed, she is forced to face the consequences of her choices. She decides to turn back, sacrificing her freedom to protect those she loves. But doing so may prove more painful than she realized and she risks unraveling the very fabric of the world if those following manage to get their hands on the stone.
