Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants... Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl's got to eat.

Eugenie Markham is a badass.

In Storm Born, Richelle Mead introduces us to a world hidden behind the ...
I loved this book. I originally picked it up just because it was wrote by Richelle Mead. I loved her Vampire Academy series and really wanted to read her other works. This book is very different from VA but equally as amazing.Eugenie is a shaman, known as Odile, Dark Swan. Her job is to rid the huma...
Storm Born in a nutshell: 1. Some prophecy involving a son which makes it so that every magical creature wants to have sex with the main character in order to be the father of that son, making it so Eugenie has to constantly fight off various rape attempts. She's not the only one, though. Lots of ...
