Heartless: A Shieldmaiden's Voice
Some people have a hard time fitting into the world...
All of her life Carole Blank has been a little faster, a little stronger, and a little uncooperative. The voices in her head want her to follow their rules, and although they’re usually right, Carole doesn’t always listen.
From foster care to a veil hidden in the desert, Carole searches for a place to belong. Her unnatural abilities and penchant for fighting are useful to the government. Unfortunately, her inability to follow orders over the demands of the voices gets her into trouble.
Enter Lieutenant Colonel Ted White, a man she is inexplicably drawn to. A man who sentences her to the life of an assassin, while denying her the only thing she’s ever wanted—him.
Follow the journey of a woman born in the wrong world, as she fights for a place to belong, and sacrifices everything for those she loves.
Sometimes being heartless isn’t a choice, it’s a calling.
This is a stunning prequel novel in the Covenant Keeper series, filling in much of the series’ back story and bringing depth and color to the story of a unique lead character. "Heartless: A Shieldmaiden’s Voice" is a great read as a stand-alone book or as a part of the Covenant Keepers series. The story is decorated with scenes from all over the world and punctuated with vivid secondary characters who add their own insights into the plot. S.R. Karfelt uses Carole’s adventures to highlight a central issue in today’s society, where a female, no matter how talented or successful, is expected to sacrifice ambition and career for family. Carole’s struggles with this expectation, even more than her struggles with her alienation from society, make this a compelling, thought-provoking read.
